Title: What deterred you from comitting a crime
Post by: jkubin on June 29, 2017, 12:32:11 AM
In Virginia if you are convicted of a felony, you lose several rights, one of which is the right to vote. Now I'm curious as to why that is. It's not like it's a deterrent. I mean no one decided against killing a person because they lose their right to vote. And on those same lines, why should felons pay taxes. I mean if they are not allowed to participate in electing representation, how can they be subjected to taxation without representation? It just seems to me that someone really dropped the ball on this whole idea, don't you?
