Bernie Sanders says Boston Marathon bomber, sexual assaulters should be allowed to vote


FOLKS, THIS IS THE FOLKS TO LEAD OUR COUNTRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

During a CNN town hall on Monday night, Harvard student Anne Carlstein asked if his position would support “enfranchising people” like Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who she noted is a “convicted terrorist and murderer,” as well as those “convicted of sexual assault,” whose votes could have a “direct impact on women’s rights.”

Sanders first responded by saying he wanted a “vibrant democracy” with “higher voter turnout” and blasted “cowardly Republican governors” who he said were “trying to suppress the vote.”

If somebody commits a serious crime- sexual assault, murder, they’re gonna be punished. They may be in jail for 10 , 20 , 50 , their whole lives. ’s what happens when you commit a serious crime,” Sanders elaborated.
“But, I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy. Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away and you say, ‘ guy committed a terrible crime, not gonna let him vote. Well, person did . Not gonna let person vote,’ you’re running down a slippery slope. So, I believe people who commit crimes, they the price. When they get out of jail, I believe they certainly should have the right the vote, but I do believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying their price to society, but should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.”

DUMB AZZ, THIS IS NOT A DEMOCRACY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

OUR COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED AND HOPFULLY WILL RETURN TO BEING A REPUBLIC.

LEARN SHYT IF YOU RUN FOR PRESIDENT.

I'm no fan of Bernie, but I've long thought we should consider letting felons vote again AFTER they've served their time and as long as they don't rescind. I'd like to hear more pros and cons on the matter before I decide tho.

GBU all,
