Recently, I was listening to CNN where they were discussing the states where convicted felons are not allowed to vote and whether that was right.
Is voting a right or a privilege? But there's a third word that used to be applied, though one seldom hears it anymore.
When I was a kid voting wasn't a right or a privilege. It was a duty of every citizen in the democracy to participate in the electoral process.
As to felons. They are in prison to work off their debt to society.
When they come out, are they citizens again or are they less than citizens?
