FELONS AND VOTING: This article

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 8:44 pm

FELONS AND VOTING: This article from Reason Online argues that felons should be allowed to vote, because we’re all felons. The author sets forth a list of felonies and argues that we have all committed at least one — taken a baseball bat to a mailbox, or written a lewd comment on a postcard.

Brilliant. By the same logic, we should stop sending felons to prison, I guess.

UPDATE: In the original post, I hesitated to pass along the fact that I haven’t committed any of the felonies listed in the article. Obviously, I’m supposed to have committed at least one; the fact that I hadn’t had me feeling a little abnormal. But a reader has written to say he hasn’t, either. So that makes two of us, anyway. I feel a little better now.
