They have been trying to have felons vote in California and Florida.

Why not? They have felons as congresspeople and as advisers.
And I defy you to find a California democratic legislator that has NOT committed a felony just to stay in office. For that matter, a democrat anywhere that hasn’t.
Well isn’t there a convicted Congressman ‘Somewhere’ legislating?
Not sure but Alcee Hastings of Floor-E-Duh .. isn’t he a felon or just an impeached judge?
No surprise here.
It’s going to be the only way they can be elected in November.
it is the only way most of the Corruptocrat senators and congresscritters will be allowed to vote seeing as most of them are felons.
Time for all of us to contact our representatives again, I suppose.
Convicted felons are likely to vote for unconvicted felons. Or, at least the Democrats hope so.
Contacting the people might make more sense. The reps may not listen but the people will vote. Getting enough outraged citizens to say they’ll flood out any forced felon vote (assuming it doesn’t get hung up immediately in court) might mean more.
Knew that was coming. Amnesty for illegals and convicted felons = new Dem voting base.
Democrats were always The Criminal Party. They should change the party name.
Much publicity hay could be made of this. Look, the rats are so bad they need criminals to keep them in office.
The answer is simple.
Insist that anyone who may legally vote must also be allowed to legally own firearms.
If some one is too dangerous to allow arms, they are certainly also too dangerous to allow to vote.
Violence with firearms is momentary and locally contained.
Violence committed via voting is much more permanent, and affects a much larger number of victims!
I feel that once a man has served his sentence, lived up to the conditions of his parole, he should be allowed to vote. He should also be allowed to possess firearms. If a man cannot have his full rights as an American restored then why let him go?
In Texas, felons are allowed to vote once all conditions of their sentences are met. I am a convicted felon and I have been voting since 2006.
Constitutionally it ought to be left to the states to choose. Also you’re one of the special few who would vote Republican; most of the folks who had been your cellmates would go overwhelmingly Rat. I think the Rats want to even open it up to parolees and probationers, anyone who isn’t physically in a prison or jail.
90% of all democrats are already felons. they won’t gain many votes.....and that includes congress critters..
We’d wish that were the size of it. They’re talking about adding 4 million almost exclusively Rat votes.
Also, a new pool of potential political candidates. Water seeks it’s own level.
