• Who is a felon?

    Of course, it's simple. Who is a felon is a decision made by those who decided to break the law.
    But wait, who makes the laws? Non-felons.
    (Have you ever broken a law?)
    What if the Non-felon Law-makers had a law putting half the population in prison?
    It sounds ridiculous. But taking away any percentage of voters changes how our democratic society makes decisions. In a country built on an idea that all individuals are equal, letting gov't control who has more authority is more ridiculous.

  • Felon Disenfranchisement has proven itself solid

    If Felon Disenfranchisement were unconstitutional then it would have been challenged successfully many years ago. Felons, due to the nature of their offenses against society, lose certain rights and privileges that are afforded to us initially as a citizen of this United States of America. One can argue about which rights felons should be stripped of but the constitution protects our right to disenfranchise them.

  • No, Felon Disenfranchisement is not Unconstitutional.

    No, I do not believe the disenfranchisement of felons is unconstitutional. I think that when you have committed a felony that shows you are a threat to society your rights should be restricted. Companies should have the right now to have a murderer or rapist in their workplace. We have to think of the workers that would be uncomfortable and unable to perform their jobs with those felons around. The same goes for housing, nobody should be forced to live next door to a sex offender especially if they have children. As harsh as it may sound, some choice swill follow you for the rest of your life and effect your quality of life.
