被判有罪的重刑犯不应该被允许投票

这篇文章讨论了我对重罪犯是否应有选举权的思考。重罪是指被判犯有重罪的人,这是一种可判处死刑或在州或联邦监狱服刑的罪行。重罪是一种严重的犯罪行为,可判处监禁或死刑。被判有罪的重刑犯不应该被允许投票。在过去的这些选举中,许多美国人不被允许投票。这并不是因为他们没有纳税,或者精神不健全或者年龄不足。他们不能投票的原因是因为他们是重罪犯。一旦某人犯了严重的罪行或重罪,他们就表明自己不值得信任,不值得投票。因为他们违反了法律,他们不应该有投票的义务。如果有人被送进监狱,他们会同意自己的大部分权利已经被剥夺。 Prison is meant to be a punishment and one of their punishments is their loss of freedom and democratic rights for their time of their sentence. Convicted felons have also demonstrated poor judgment and should not be trusted with a vote. The main point of a prison sentence to show the offender and society that criminal behavior results in loss of freedom and most of the rights that freedom has to offer. Therefore felons should not be allowed to vote. Although some people believe that felons should be allowed to vote at any circumstance but I believe that if they are felons they have already lost that opportunity because they have decided to make the choice to participate in criminal activities. If the felon is not willing to follow the law himself, then they should not demand the right to vote. In California, felons serving time in prison or county jail are denied their right to vote. According to The Sentencing Project, 5.3 million Americans were unable to vote in 2008 due to a felony conviction. Unfortunately, statistics show that this number is expected to rise to 6 million. Convicted felons are in prison for a reason, they committed a crime that was of a serious nature, whether it be robbing a bank, killing someone, etc. We do not need these type of people to help make decisions to choose the nations leaders. They obviously could not make a decision governing their own lives, we should definitely not allow them to make those kind of decisions for the rest of us. I believe voting is not just a right but a responsibility. Although, people against the opportunities of felons, have made some good points, there is not enough evidence to hold up the argument that it is wrong to take away the right to vote from felons. The act of taking away the right to vote from felons and ex-felons is called Disenfranchisement. People that are in favor of disenfranchisement believe that those convicted of a crime have shown poor judgment therefore, proves them unfit to make good decisions when it comes to elections. Some believe that felon disenfranchisement laws also have a big racial impact because certain percent of population have their right to vote taken away more than others. It seems like a good point but voting requires certain minimum standards of and trustworthiness. Those who have committed serious crimes against their fellow citizens do not meet the standards of voting.
