Watered Down

Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

Bernie Sanders wants to let felons vote while in prison.
The point of voting is to choose wise leaders to make sensible laws.  The point of restrictions on voting is to ensure the people doing the choosing are, themselves, wise people.  Children, the mentally infirm, and felons are, by definition, not wise people.  Felons have already demonstrated they’re not willing to follow sensible laws so they no longer get to participate in choosing who makes the laws.  This isn’t a new concept – it’s been the law for thousands of years for the simple reason that it works.
Watering down wise peoples’ votes by extending the franchise to unwise people, can only result in decisions that are less wise.  And that’s how we get Democrats in office: dumb voters making bad decisions.  This can’t end well.

It’s not intended to.

  1. Felons have already demonstrated they’re not willing to follow sensible laws so they no longer get to participate in choosing who makes the laws.

    Lol. No, Joe.
    What about those convicted of laws you, or maybe I don’t find sensible? What about the poor slob living in California that squirrels away a few 30 rnd magazines for his black rifle…just in case?

    And what about the mob guy who never gets pinched? Is he wiser than the one that does?

    Leftists will tell you they sincerely believe a female penis exists…but no one is suggesting they be excluded from the franchise.

    Loss of franchise is a punishment the legislatures and courts have tacked on.

    Leftists want to extend the vote to convicts because Negroes and Hispanics commit more than 50% of felony crimes; especially violent crimes. They see that as a serious erosion of their base. It’s nothing more complicated than that.
