In reference to the editorial on April 1, “Rights are priceless,” I must ask, how many of these convicted felons were actually registered to vote prior to their arrest/conviction, and how many actually voted? If their voting rights meant so much to them they would have been out voting instead of out committing felonies.
And what about the “poor” who lose their driver’s license for a traffic offense, i.e., DUI, etc., who cannot pay off their fines to get their license back right away, like the “rich” can; should those fines also be excused/delayed, etc. because one cannot pay? If you drive for a living and are “poor,” would this not be an “unfair” burden?
And why should anyone who is convicted of “treason” (that person should be hanged anyway) be ever allowed to vote again? And we all know who most of these convicted felons will/would vote for: hee haw, hee haw.
