Bernie Sanders – ‘Let Prisoners Participate in Democracy’…

01) I do believe that even if they are in jail…

“Sen. Bernie Sanders: “I do believe that even if they are in jail, they are paying their price to society, but that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.”

    I find it amusing that self-described classical liberals and conservatives think Bernie is outrageously wrong about letting prisoners vote because “thuh terrorists”. These people claim that leftists are coming for their jobs, their money, their safety, and their speech (and they’re right). I wonder what tune they will sing when they find themselves imprisoned, without the opportunity to participate in voting themselves to freedom, or even to dissent. Prisons, particularly in the US, are tools of political oppression(and slave labor, rather than means to “correct” behavior. Without the vote for prisoners, all you have to do to win is imprison your opponents. As a bonus, in many states they can never vote again.

      I think…this is the primary reason why so many people have been criminalized by the government..They intend to strip as many people of their rights, power and influence, as they possibly can.
