Felon voting is a top agenda item for the sophisticated election left. The unsophisticated fall for it.  The advocates of felon voting know that if felons had been allowed to vote, three Republican presidential victories would have been reversed and the GOP would have not held the U.S. Senate for many other years.

Felons empirically vote 9:1 for Democrats.

Bob McDonnell apparently never saw this data when he decided to hire six salaried government employees to push through felon voters in time for the November election, including Candice Reid, the “Restoration of Rights director.”  Reid’s job is to work closely with leftist groups to speed through as many felon voters as possible, all from within Governor McDonnell’s administration.

PJ Media will find out if felon voters indeed will cost Mark Obenshain a seat as Virginia attorney general.  If felons end up making the difference in the race, that’s another reason for Virginia Republicans to blame Bob McDonnell for the shellacking of November 2013.

How come recounts always seem to add votes to the Democrat tally, never the Republican?

It would help a lot if the establishment types didn't ALWAYS turn out to be crooks.

First off, are we talking here about convicted felons, or accused felons?

Felons can have their civil rights - like voting privilege - restored through the court system.

Convicted. And Virginia NEVER had a court-run reinstatement program.

You gotta admire the Democrats, however. They are brazen, and they don't care what you think about their methods- they play to win. I loved the story out of Fairfax County where the mysterious uncounted absentee votes were "discovered" that cut Obenshain's lead to double digits and they had plan B to finish the job where they planned on letting party officials represent the provisional voters. Just wait- plan C is already coming.

McDonnell, when elected, was supposed to be the "model" of what GOP candidates should strive for: Economics and fairness v. the So-Con agenda.
Just another lie spewed by the Left.

Most establishment Republicans fear the media and so their compass always points to "what will be the media's reaction to this issue."

Dems play hard ball, GOP plays dodgeball with the media as their opponent.

Our Dear Leader will abuse his "Pardon Authority" is a certainty in his final days. Bill Clinton will look like an amateur compared to what Obama will do.

In the history of politics, there is only one fundamental, abiding issue.

It is individualism vs. collectivism.

Both establishment Democrats and Republicans believe in collectivism...i.e. the obligation to live our lives for the community or the state.

This article linked below was written before the rise of the Tea Party. It does a good job of helping to understand what is going on in American politics today.

Basically, the Tea Party is the only group advocating less collectivism and more individualism. That both establish Democrats (modern liberals) and Republicans (modern conservatives) are trying to destroy the Tea Party should tell you all you need to know.

I haven't read the article yet, but I like "the obligation to live our lives for the community or the state." It does apply to the loyalists of both parties.

"...the Democrats are, indeed, playing chess..."

Actually, it is no longer Democrat v Republican and has not been for decades. It is now left v right, and the left believes that peace is just war without as much violence (but they are definitely not opposed to the violence part either.)

The leftist' Bible, Rules for Radicals, tells them that the ends justifies the means, that they are fighting against evil people, and only they are on the side of good. Sound familiar? That's right - Islam and the Koran. No wonder they get along so well.

Well, Virginia is beginning to look like Minnesota all over again. Fairfax County is simply unbelievable, and it is a locked down Dem stronghold.

If you want to make a moral point about felons and rights, and say that those who have done their time have done penance for their crime and deserve voting rights restored, then it is not logical to not push to have the civil right to firearms ownership also restored.

Any rationale on the basis of civil rights given for voting must include firearms ownership as you are, truly, trying to say that these are just ordinary members of society once more and that if they are safe to decide the course of elections then they should be safe to protect their own lives and property which is far more primal than mere voting.

Yet the Left always shies away from that sort of thing. And Republicans are not smart enough to link the other civil restrictions on felons to voting restrictions. This demonstrates not just being duped by members wishing ill for society, but a fundamental lack of knowledge of the morality behind punishment and the purposes it serves to society beyond voting.

Penance includes restitution to the victim. How do you take back a rape or a murder?

Why wouldn't they shy away from any 2-A restoration?
They don't want anyone to have the means of self-defense as that just makes the imposition of the State all the more difficult to accomplish.
