This is what Tammy predicted in her latest column at the Washington Times: Bernie Sanders and his cynical proposition: Giving incarcerated felons the vote

Keep in mind, very often Democrats will propose a ridiculously extreme position, like allowing terrorists and serial killers to vote from prison, and then the “compromise” becomes the actual dynamic they were seeking. In this case, perhaps either allowing people in prison to vote who are not felons, or enfranchising felons who have been released from prison but are still on parole having not yet actually completed their sentence.

Democrats laugh when they suggest we take 5 steps toward the cliff and Republicans chime in, insist on ‘compromise,’ arguing for taking just 2 steps toward the cliff. That’s a win, we’re told. Is it?

Via Breitbart.

Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA), who serves as co-chair of Sen. Bernie Sanders‘s (I-VT) 2020 presidential campaign, broke with Sanders over his support for allowing the Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to vote from prison, telling CNN’s New Day on Wednesday that he “wouldn’t go that far” to restore voting rights for felons….

    Not to mention, more important issues such as work place equality, healthcare reform, cures for H.I.V., campaign finance reform, and legal voting are real concerns for the majority of Americans. I think the left’s bubble needs to be popped again. Living in a commune, Woodstock, group think world causes one to be out of touch with the real issues of the majority of US citizens. Time to take our geritol! Lol

    All of this discourse about radical political viewpoints, in my opinion, is a textbook example of ‘The Overton Window’…push way over the line, then retreat to the position you wanted in the first place…

      True. It’s a standard negotiating tactic. It won’t fool Trump, but may work on the lackluster Republicans in Congress and a segment of the public.

    From quick web search, there were 21 countries in 2018 that allowed felons to vote. 2012 BBC article informs that Austria did not allow felons to vote But it then lost before the European Court resulting in Austria allowing felons to vote. I’m suspicious of Euro Court influence on other countries laws. Did someone say, Brexit sovereignty?
