Re: “Denied the vote

I've had this argument with several other on different occasions, mainly when it became time to vote for Obama. As I campaigned for him people constantly tried to shut me out by stating that I couldn't vote. Little did these morons know that they couldn't suppress a man of my thinking. I kindly stated to quite a few of them "follow me to the polls", and that I did!!! They have all ready taken away so many other things from me b/c of my actions as a young man, and never will I let anyone tell me what I can or can not do until I see it in black and white for myself, and it must have credentials backing it then! I dont think it is right how felons are suppressed in the economy only to become entangled with the law further. What else are they to do when all of their rights are stripped and they cant even get a decent job. They have to find another way to survive and that usually entails them breaking the law again. Society imposes these people as scums of the earth and dont want to deal with them, but they also dont want their taxes to be raised because it cost so much money a year to house an inmate. Rather than rehabilitate the person they'd rather throw them in a cell with much more harmful criminals to become more of a threat to society. I am not speaking of murderers, rapists or people with violent crimes. I am speaking of those people with meaningless drug charges and petty crimes that are considered a felony. I mean if its not violent and it doesnt hurt anyone including yourself, then I dont think it should be a felony. It should call for remediation, probation and lots and lots of community service so that we can cut all county budgets on government employees. I could write 3 pages expressing my thoughts about this, but I would like to thank you if you have read this much...
