I barely escaped being a felon for a VIOLENT CRIME THAT NEVER OCCURED (due to MY efforts, not the public pretender, not the police). This nation keeps a large # of votes out, the votes of good people who fell prey to corruption, inept police, and abusive probation/parole.
I was nearly convicted of a violent crime THAT NEVER OCCURRED when public grade school teachers Peggy Hoerner and Caroline Street falsely reported and Loveland Police gladly assisted. These teachers and police went so far...

I barely escaped being a felon for a VIOLENT CRIME THAT NEVER OCCURED (due to MY efforts, not the public pretender, not the police). This nation keeps a large # of votes out, the votes of good people who fell prey to corruption, inept police, and abusive probation/parole.
I was nearly convicted of a violent crime THAT NEVER OCCURRED when public grade school teachers Peggy Hoerner and Caroline Street falsely reported and Loveland Police gladly assisted. These teachers and police went so far as to include LIES that Hobby Lobby had NO security cameras and waited 8 months to arrest so that footage would no longer be available. I know first hand how EASY one becomes a felon when one OFFENDS another. What offended the teachers? My activism to end gov't child confiscation, the corruption that placed my daughters with a man who tells everyone he is their father- he is not birth certs, I was denied DNA 6 requests, we never lived together, has LONG history of violence.
I GLADLY SIGN THIS PETITION.

Frickin loons! Felons give up those rights when they
violate others.

each individual convicted of a felon should be reviewed case by case. Not just an open and shut case of yeah, sure, let a violent felon have a gun again. NOT! Voting is one thing, that no harm can be done....but many other rights....those need to be earned back. The reason they lost their right to vote is that they didn't appreciate what they had in the first place.

People grow, and change...Convicted felons deserve to be able to vote as well as get grants for college. I know someone who would be an engineer today if he could get financial help with school fees, but because he's a convicted felon he can't. As long as these people pay their taxes, have served their time, and live in this country as a citizen then they need to be treated as citizens with all the rights others have. I know people who became felons at 15 years old, do they really deserve to not be able to vote, or go to school?

I do not feel it is right that a person who has a felony on their record is unable to vote..granted voting is a privilege..how can we even begin to change things or continue to have something that is voted on if everyone doesn't get the chance to voice their opinion..voting is actually freedom of speech..one voices their opinion by voting for or against something or someone..

Well, I think certain criminals should not be allowed to vote ever. These inclue rapists and child molesters. Sorry, just my opinion. They shouldn't be free either...but that's a whole other debate. It just depends on the crime and the mindset.

Too bad. You commit a crime against your nation and you lose your rights. That's how it should be. Think about that before you do something, its that simple. I understand people "clean up" afterward, but your opinion should not be accepted since you didn't make intelligent decisions before. That is the punishment for committing a crime, sorry to inform you of the real America.

I think this is a very worthy cause. If you think about it, with all the felons out there, people like Obama probably wouldn't get re-elected! Every american needs to vote. If every american could vote, felons included,, I really think we would see a huge differance in our country! My daughter-in-law is finishing a prison sentence right now and she gets out in 5 days. I am not prejudice of anyone, but it saddens her that she has had so much stripped from her. She wants to vote and she can't because of all these laws!

I hope and pray this will make a difference. We are all born AMERICANS with the right to vote and make mistakes and learn from those mistakes. They served their time.
