Are you kidding me.

I got the following from

{If you're a U.S. citizen over the age of 18, you have the right to vote.

If you're convicted of a felony, you could have that right taken away — but it all depends on where you live.

In Kentucky, you'll lose the right to vote forever. In Wisconsin, you'll only get it back after you've finished probation and parole. In Vermont, you can mail your ballot from prison.

Civil-rights groups are pushing back against some of the tighter restrictions with lawsuits, most recently with a successful case in Washington state.}

Are you kidding me??? Why shouldn't we let convicted felons Vote??? After all we elect them to congress, and the guys in prison know these guys intimately. Plus I trust the convict down the street more than I trust my congressman. We here in the good state of Oregon let illegal aliens vote. Heck we even print the ballots in multiple languages for you in case you can't read english. All you need in Oregon is a drivers license, and lucky lucky we have almost NO requirements for getting a drivers license.

So ya why not... Lets let every serial killer and rapist vote. After all these same individuals are going to be running for congress next election anyway.
