Prisoners do not and should not have the ability or the right to vote. The principle of no taxation without representation does not apply to prisoners. Prisoners do not pay any taxes what so ever while they are in prison and they do not deserve to have the right to vote.
Prisoners do not pay taxes so they should not benefit the same as someone who actually does work and pay taxes. Prisoners are not rule followers. If they were, they would not be in prison. So why should someone who does not play by the same rules as the rest of the country help make decisions for those of us that do play by the rules?
