Can someone help me with writing blocks for the resolution, In a democratic society, felons ought to retain the right to vote???

Common arguements are:
social contract
felons have bad judgement
felons are uninformed ABOUT SOCIETY (locked away from society, therefore do not have as much knowledge about it as people living in society)
felons are citizens and therefore deserve rights
felons cannot be rehabilitated without rights
Too much politics are involved in denying felons right to vote
felons are mentally unstable
Slippery Slope
Snowball disenfranchisemene
felons assulted democracy therefore do not deserve rights
felons don't care about society
democracy means everyone including felons can vote
democracy cannot exist without informed electorate
don't deserve rights if they broke law
can be rehabilitated without rights
denying rights is double punishment
denying rights deters crime
by deying vote we kick felons out of society and resolution no longer implies to them
retain means felons always keep right
"A" democracy means one, not "all"
removing vote is not just punishment

If anyone does ld debate and wanted to help out, they could just copy and paste blocks
Also, cards would be appreciated (cards are basically quotes from reliable sources)
also, blocks that don't pertain to the aforementioned arguements would be helpful

THANKS

PM stands for penis massage. Don't fall into this pedophile's trap.
If I didn't answer what you said, try bolding the important part.

PM means private message, not penis message.

Nice joke. Too bad it ain't that good.
