The fact that a bunch of rich spoiled piece of shit white people are deciding who can and cannot vote on a whim is really making me hate America.
This is just one of many thousands of things that have caused me to hate that country just in 2 years
I’ve been a felon since I was 15 me and my friends robbed a pizza man in 9th grade. I’ve never voted and never had a job and I still managed to graduate from college, I’m about to be 30 now. Voting is cool I wish I could get a fucking job though!!! I need a job to start paying taxes and shit or I’m fucked.... worst of all I’m in Florida lol
THESE PEOPLE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT AN ACTUAL FELON LOOKS LIKE!!! LITERALLY SOME PEOPLE ARE CONVICTED FELONS WHO GOT CAUGHT UP DUE TO BEING BROUGHT UP IN POVERTY OR BEING CAUGHT UP IN ADDICTION (WHICH IS A MENTAL DISEASE!!!!!)...AND SOME OF THOSE FELONS ARE REALLY GOOD PEOPLE WHO MADE SOME STUPID MISTAKES AND YES SOME ARE NOT AND BAD PEOPLE BUT MOST ARE NOT SO YOU ARE NAIVE TO THINK THAT FELONS ARE ALL BAD.
More biased political propaganda. Can we get unbiased episodes that target important issues rather than issues that could hurt the Dems chances of getting elected, please? I think your two party system is garbage, scratch that, I think your entire political system is worse than Kim Jun Un's so leave it out of the fucking show.
You're a stupid, retarded jerk Bolsonaro is the hope of our country to escape from the clutches of the socialist dictatorship! You better inform your bastard! You live in a capitalist country far from the hell we live. You will comment in the government of Venezuela that I believe you will say that it is an altentica scrotal democracy !!!
"Brazil above all else, and God hates everyone!"
Nope, voting no on 4.
Some Felons can vote again already if they get out of prison, and learn skills, jet a job, volunteer at charities and then go to court to ask a judge to expunge their record. It happens but not often because Felony Criminals usually want to take the selfish way. When I was growing up, I had 5 brothers and 6 sisters. All of us would talk off and on about how we would loose our voting rights if we ever got a felony conviction. Twelve kids all grown and zero felony convictions. All grew up in a low income, below poverty level family and zero went to prison.
A Vote of Yes on 4 is a pathway for some to go hell bent for good times and end up doing time. Crime will go up and more lives destroyed.
Say No to increased crime and tell people to be good or loose out.

1:30 - Here he seems to be saying we shouldn't hold things against people forever and at some point presume they've changed and be forgiven for past misdeeds.
The problem I have with this, is just _how_ _many_ _times_ have I seen him tearing into some prominent person for their past misdeeds and insisting they shouldn't be forgiven? So what is the deal here, John Oliver? Are we supposed to forgive people after a time or not? Because once more, you're just being a raving hypocrite by once more selectively picking and choosing whom is held to which standard. Literally no better than any of the politicians you routinely tear into.
Here in Germany there is no act you can do to loose your voting right. Even when old and senile or psychologically proven crazy, you can vote. And we turned out to have a better country so let the fuckers vote!
Rick Scott is and will always be a viciously horrible racist bigoted very evil men the system needs to change I live in Fort Lauderdale police are so nasty and corrupt is ridiculous Florida is one of the most racist states there is Rick Scott is trying to keep black people disenfranchise so Republicans stay in power and keep on locking people up for years and letting the real criminals go free look at George Zimmerman fuck that nasty Racist Prick Rick Scott and fuck🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕 the Republican Party fuck 🖕🖕🖕🖕the Tea Party and fuck 🖕🖕🖕all conservatives black and white scum of the fucking 🖕🖕🖕Earth all they care about is themselves they do not want to distribute any wealth to anybody they want to keep it amongst themselves capitalism is the work of Satan socialism is Godly they try to talk down on it because of places like Venezuela but that country is mostly run by dictatorship people that actually living the American dream live in places like Denmark
i am sorry, but if you commit a felony, you shouldn't be allowed to vote once you get out. you are going to make a bad decisions anyway. but if you must, then give them five years probation. if in those five years they don't commit any type of crime, then give them back their ability to vote automatically
Im sorry, but if you fucking think that you should have an opinion on who can and cant vote you're a dipshit, our founding fathers where very clear that we ALL HAVE EQUAL RIGHTS THAT CANT BE TAKEN AWAY BECAUSE GOD GAVE THEM TO US AND NOT THE STATE, so if you think that you should have rights and someone else shouldnt because they made a mistake, than do the country a favor and leave
If I had to guess, probably for the party that isn't trying to suppress their right to vote, or supporting the for-profit prison system, both of which are major factors behind thw US's high rate of repeat offenders. But honestly there are too many different kinds of people in that demographic for big generalizations like that to be practical.
the common thing among many of these episodes is that republicans are the main reason america is a pile of shit....every shitty law is generally a result of a republicunt asswipe who likely thumps the bible 24/7
um..... That can't be right. I have a felony and got a passport. I was never asked to give up my passport. I am still on probation and have never been questioned about it or was given any paper about it. No one asked me if I have one even, despite it was well known that I have much family outside of the US and have been to many other countries.
Scott, yet ANOTHER regressive myopic redneck Repube who is SO unaware of anything outside of HIMself HIS religious beliefs and HIS political party that he's basically a complete waste; a complete waste of skin, oxygen, our time and a perfectly good political position where REAL changes could be made in Florida, instead of being the laughing stock of the nation. One good thing comes from Florida's non-stop clown show though, the gratitude Mississippi feels for the distraction.
That stupid white bitch only thinks it's a good idea because she hasn't been framed yet. Once she gets into some trouble or gets framed she's going to cry crocodile tears about her right to vote. She's going to try to go to court and sue someone.
Using the same argument, we can say "Many people with felony convictions are unfairly prohibited from owning guns". Like the right to vote, it is also a constitutional right, to bear arms. If you think it is too dangerous to put a gun into the hands of those people, why it is safer to allow them decide who will have hands on the nuclear button?
And we all know who felons would vote for. The key state in american politics has 1.6mn felons. It would change the election entirely. In actuality if the felons in florida is granted the right to vote the US would become democrat for decades to come unless california or something is donated to mexico.
My favorite fun fact that never comes up in this argument is that anything native American people are arrested for that isn't specifically illegal on reservation land is a felony. If there's no law against jaywalking, that's a federal felony conviction.
I would love for someone to find out the proportions of Rick Scott's board restoring the votes of white felons versus the same with black felons. If he is doing only 400 a year then that is more than a manageable pool for a university research team.
“Voting is not a right. It’s a privilege.”
Ah yes. My mistake. Must have read the Constitution wrong. Thought it said something about the right to vote. Though, it could have said the right to “vole.” English is hard sometimes. 🤷🏻♂️
