Lowell Ponte Biography

Title:
Writer, Commentator
Position:
Con to the question "Should Felons Who Have Completed Their Sentence (Incarceration, Probation, and Parole) Be Allowed to Vote?"
Reasoning:

“[W]hy give a convicted felon a ballot that can be used like a bullet to empower a robber-politician’s gun? Do we want our politicians pandering for the votes of felons? Or making government policy designed to win their votes and serve those constituents? Do we want America to become a felonocracy?”
