Voter disenfranchisement, old school style

September 19, 2012

Up early today, and spent my time writing a new diary on Daily Kos now. I think it was the problems that led me to abandon faith — hypocrisy, injustice, evil — that have made them a continuing interest for me to this day. In this case, it’s the disenfranchisement of felons, many former ones with their prison time served and debts paid, who continue to suffer the loss of their supposedly inalienable liberty, their right to vote.

Naturally, southern states, conservative governments, Republicans…the usual suspects…crop up in this version of voter suppression as well.

Quick edit: This diary got rescued by the rangers, so it will have some visibility during the afternoon, which is nice. It seems as if a lot of my diaries get a rescue, probably because I am not a popular writer. They pick out the more deserving ones, though. This is one I’d like to be seen.
