Republicans were quick to criticize Democrats for even contemplating the idea. Elizabeth Warren said "I'm not there yet" on the issue. Sen.

"Tsarnaev should be voting - presumably for them... it's unbelievable". MA is among 14 states, along with the District of Columbia, that automatically reinstate voting rights to felons released from prison.

On a CNN town hall Monday, Bernie Sanders was asked whether the right to vote should extend to now incarcerated felons. Sanders said. "I said that because the right to vote is essential". "They may be in jail for 10 years, 20 years, 50 years, their whole lives".

"You've committed a crime, you can't vote".

"Do I think that people who commit murder, people who are terrorists, should be deprived of their rights?"

"Yes, even for awful people, because once you start chipping away" at people's constitutional rights, even those who have committed a crime, "you're running down a slippery slope", said Sanders.

Taylor Swift's 13-day countdown came to an end on Friday , giving Swifties exactly what they wanted. "I'm the only one of me". This is a fun theory I will never let go of even if Swift marries four men and releases a song called "Me: I'm straight".

Sanders pointed to Vermont's policy, and argued, "What our constitution says is that everybody can vote". Do you believe that every single American 18 years of age or older who is an American citizen has the right to vote?' Sanders continued. "You lose your freedom", he said.

This is how Spurs can help Liverpool win the title tonight
The Reds have failed to win the title since 1990 and now are within few weeks from potentially making club's history. However Brighton are in a relegation battle, only three points ahead of Cardiff and we need them to stay there.

Even in solidly Democratic Hawaii, a measure to let prisoners vote didn't make it out of the Legislature this year. If that's true, then they're already paying their debt to society by being incarcerated. "Bc that question reflects WAY more people".

However you frame it, Bernie Sanders' defense of the Boston Marathon bomber's right to vote represents another lurch to the far left. That's incredibly disingenuous. That's not the conversation we should be having. "Even if you're sitting in a maximum-security prison, you retain most of the fundamental rights of a USA citizen". "We think that people support our agenda". The choice will be clear, and the high stakes decision will determine the future survival of the United States of America.

Ironically, the radical Democratic Party agenda is very helpful to President Trump.

ARIBERMAN:The states decide this. We have to remember that. In her view, "every vote matters and that means get rid of the Electoral College".

"All of us have lived experiences, all of us have a story to tell, but in what world, when you are sitting on the stage telling folks about your history and you mention the fact that you were on the March on Washington with Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr". To Sanders, both should have the right to vote.
