A hallmark of all civilized societies is the application of capital punishment, preceded by due process and a trial in accordance with the rule of law. Without capital punishment, there is no justice for the dead.
Well, Sir, I am happy to see you embrace your own servitude. Make sure you lick the hand that feeds you, safe in your cocoon of absolute Constitutional ignorance.

Rand Paul in Favor of Felon Voting

It is a good question: If a felon serves his time, is he not restored to full citizenship status now that he has paid retribution for his transgression toward society? If not, is it the law that forbids it? Most likely so...so is a change in law now determined? If a felon is released from prison, not on parole or other supervised release programs, having met the full requirements of his incarceration, can he via meeting the objectives of good citizenship (no recidivism), be permitted full voting participation? The proof of this must be in the pudding...how we go forward, if we decide in the affirmative, will determine whether Mr. Paul's desired outcome is feasible.

And now, we can all lament the passing of the left's mantra on abortion: "safe, legal and rare." They just legalized the "unsafe" practices they have spent decades demonizing as the reason abortion must be made into law, by letting other than qualified doctors perform these procedures. There also goes the "rare" part, as well. How long until we have Nurse Practitioner Gosnell in the news for botching California abortions?

I am very proud of my home state. For all posters that did not give up on Colorado citizens, thank you all very much. We know there is much more to do, and we will be busy. God Bless.
That is why our Constitution has removed the responsibility to declare war from the Executive, and further debilitated this ability with the War Powers act after president Nixon invaded Cambodia. It takes Congress to declare war/authorize military force. If our politicians would follow our law, this becomes a non-issue, but our Democrat pals use foreign intervention based upon the shaping of internal politics. It was no big deal to expend American lives in Benghazi, but somehow OK to expend US troop's lives and those in Syria without a pertinent national security/defense interest at stake. Your questions are spot on...too few have asked them...particularly in the MSM.
The key word in my post is "explicitly" versus implicitly. What you cite is very correct, but the right to vote is implicit in the words of those articles, not an explicit, declarative sentence as is seen in the 2nd Amendment with the right to bear arms. So as you said, and I think this applies more to your observation than mine: not entirely correct. By the way...I am so glad that someone else is reading the Constitution. Sometimes, I feel all alone:-). Thanks for your reply.
Looks like justice for a treasonous, murdering act of a turncoat. The treason is there, even if the US Army refused to prosecute for it. The other's act was murderous, but not treason. He did not kill fellow soldiers. Bales had three tours to the AOR to include being wounded and suffering a traumatic brain injury. He also successfully concluded a plea deal to avoid a death sentence by accepting life without parole. Now the hard part...getting the President to sign and issue the death warrant for Prisoner Hasan. My guess is that this will never happen on his watch...he being a liberal and friends of Muslims throughout the world.
Aw...Pascal just writes this stuff because he wildly reminisces about his stint in prison when it was so joyful for him to have another brother give it to him up the a$$. He is very nostalgic, that Pascal.
Actually, Mr. Clinton, both acts require an ID--both the purchase of a firearm and casting a ballot on election day. Whoops...sorry about that. I am wrong. You do not need an ID to vote. Nor a background check, or pay a fee (thank you, Colorado), or be issued safety information. In fact...you can vote multiple times in a single day and are not limited by race, creed, color, religion, ethnicity or citizenship. With the gun purchase, you are limited by how much you can spend. So...easier to vote than to purchase a rifle or handgun or shotgun. This is funny...the US Constitution guarantees the right to bear arms, as written explicitly in the 2nd Amendment...but no where does the Constitution state explicitly that a person has the right to vote. And yet...voting is easier...hmmm.
As Commander in Chief, President Obama must sign the death warrant. The Court Martial must sentence to death, then we will see if Obama truly understands the administration of justice. Because there was no charge of treason or terrorism, the President can always go to the mental state of Prisoner Hasan and formulate a rationale to not execute. If that happens, this will truly be a tragedy of unspeakable proportions. Prisoner Hasan has earned his infamy and execution. Let us oblige him. Otherwise there is no justice for the dead.
