life is a journey (2 дня назад)
don't live there anymore don't want too,but have to go back there to hope god can deside if I can have my full pardon at the capitol, in hopes that 150 year old law changes ,thank god gov scott is out ,he did nothing he said he would do in 2011, post civil war law come on florida thank you john oliver you are so right while our head man may have commited more crimes then most ,still there most ,party of the 3to7% of criminals are political faces ,it is a freak show from what I can see we do out time then some ,lets hope for change in 2019 ,where are the stats for those again who don't live there anymore ,don't want to ,but have to go back there for our freedom ,whats up with that I took care of in 6 months in 1 state that has taken 11 years in florida for a 33 year old crime ,I have paid for my live starting with the terrible prison probation ,florida I did my time many years ago,yet I live a life sentence as a ex felon ,then if you get a pardon ,guess what you were never a felon ,so then its a lie ,freedom should come back when the probation is over ,florida makes there money crime an tourizam ,he was the worst gov ever ,then they elect him for senator in such close race ,how about corrupt ,like the guy never got away with something he should have spent time in jail for heck some presidents needed to be in jail some time ago ,we allow it to happen I guess or not,one guy said we need change in florida now,i have thought for a long time moveing from one state to another is like moving to another country yet we salute the same flag I don't think so ,

It's not like they could vote for a crazy demegog who incites people to violence and seperates kids from their parents and tells lies all the time... Oh, wait. But seriously, they don't have that many opinions on the ballot so why not let them vote for 1 of the 2 candidates. They can't vote for themselves or another convicted criminal. Are they worried about the ex-felons will vote for the wrong politician that's already on the ballot? Doesn't make any sense.

Florida returned voting rights to felons this past midterm...an estimated 1.4 million felons received their voting rights back. My point being - Florida has roughly a fifth of the felons out of the entire U.S. Duuuval for life lmao two of those videos were from Jacksonville hahah I fuckin love my state so much.

How the fuck can you tax people and not let them vote? I say if you're going to disenfranchise somebody, they don't need to pay taxes either. Want their money? You have to accept their ballot too.

I think white collar crimes are the only ones that shouldn't be able to vote.... a politician isn't going to campaign with the slogan "I'll make rape legal", but a politician may be running to make white collar crimes less illegal.... something to ponder

Never, EVER say anything is "the stupidest thing about Florida", because, I guarantee you, you will be out-Floridad. Only God knows the stupidest thing about Florida, and that's good - I'm sure the rest of us could never handle it.

I think only violent felons should be barred from voting, but Florida literally allowed all felons to vote. Nickolas Cruz (that school shooter that is in prison) literally registered.

Enjoy this term Scott and Desantes. With 1.4 million more people eligible to vote next time, it will be your last.

Hey, Idiotland - shouldn't you tools spell "disenfranchisement" with a zed rather than an s? Can you at least be consistent in your bastardisation of English? Is too much to ask that you know wtf you are doing?

What a colossal waste of time and tax payers dollars. How afraid of one vote can you be? How horrible of a person can they be if they took the time and effort to make it to this panel? Half of the fucking country doesn’t even vote anyway. These people are certainly more civically minded than the ones that don’t even show up.

The one thing I took out of this is that Americans get a sticker after voting... Really?
LordHettrick (29 дней назад)
Fun fact: if “there are no standards” and they “can make whatever decision they like”, there is, in fact, no established process for reestablishing voting rights.

I have one issue with this segment and it's the picture of the Tallahassee, Fl used. As long time fan of the show and someone born in tally 😑; I believe you should have used a picture of the capital building. It's a hilarious sight and anyone driving in town has most likely seen the capital erection of Florida.

People in prison should be encouraged, if not forced to vote in order to forestall tyranny and because it makes no fucking sense not to let prisoners vote in the first place.

Congratulations, Florida, for doing the right thing in 2018 and passing a law that allows Florida felons who've already paid for their crimes to VOTE again! Great job, Floridians. So proud of you for this. =)

voting allows people to choose their own democracy rights and needs so they never have to commit crimes again if their vote goes to people who can change the voters life.,,,,do you think the biggest gangs that are still operating are voting,,,,hell no,,,the only gangs groups i know off to vote are politicians

In Poland losing those rights is an additional penalty given only to those guilty of a violent crime highly intolerable by society, which mostly means rape or murder. And even then judges mostly forget to add it to the sentence

If you lived in Florida and you constantly has live around the notorious "Florida Man" meme in real life, you might think twice before wanting felons convicted here being able to vote. Maybe it's just me but I don't think the dude who twists toddler's nipples off should be able to vote.

Well, we did it. We passed ballot prop 4. Restoration of voting rights to most ex felons. Clearly it was the work of Mr Oliver. I thank you by sending you a gift package that is pure Florida: Oranges stuffed with gator meat, sprinkled with cocaine and a can of bud light with a seminole feather sticking out of it. But really I was super glad it passed. Besides the morality of it, maybe the (hopeful) surge of voters will have our races not all be razor thin margins!

All official videos by Rick Scott are censored, comments disabled because he knows they would all be negative comments, that's called censorship and only lying dishonest criminals like Rick Scott want the truth hidden, they don't want to be exposed for the dishonest shitbags that they really are.

I am a Brit who because of the Bugle podcast, watches John Oliver's videos fairly "religiously" (Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption, Amen) but I get disenchanted with the frustrating American political climate. I am nothing more this an observer, but coupled with England's inability to be friends with it's even closest, more European cousins and my general love of a little bit of misery, I currently reside in Australia. It would be interesting to see John Oliver and his excellent research team come to Australia to see where things don't quite add up... and go down under... I could find you all a housesit...the remaining natural landscape is nice here...

THANK YOU! John Oliver for casting a light on this injustice by Governor Rick Scott. Your show recieved a lot of publicity and achieved what the courts in Florida could not. I hope you realize the magnitude and difference it will make in the future for Florida. THANKS also to the number of news papers and news channels (CNN) for carrying your message further. ....AND to Rick Scott I say....you sir should be afraid, very afraid...over one million voters will not forget what you did.
Belinda Lewis (1 месяц назад)
Oh yeah, thanks to all the Floridian Voters who passed the law giving Felons their voice back
