Democratic party frontrunner Bernie Sanders continues to push the envelope with his extremist ideas…
The geriatric crank who is widely considered to be one of the favorites for the 2020 nomination has upped the ante in order to appeal to the energized fanatics of the party’s base and to put his own stamp on history as the man who has mainstreamed socialism in America.
Not only has Comrade Bernie proposed free college tuition, free healthcare, government jobs for all and most recently the stealing of money from white people who never owned slaves to pay out as reparations for slavery but he just uncorked another beauty.
During a barnstorming tour in the critical state of Iowa, the Vermont senator who has championed the restoration of voting rights to convicted felons took it to an entirely new level.
Bernie is now advocating for felons who are STILL in prison to also be allowed to vote.
RAPISTS, MURDERERS AND PEDOPHILES OF THE WORLD UNITE!!!!
Today @BernieSanders became the first presidential candidate to say that EVERY American, including ALL people in prison or out of prison deserve the right to vote.
I agree. And if you didn’t already know this, his home state of Vermont already allows ithttps://t.co/j5Lkzqbx4n

Via The Des Moines Register, “In Iowa, Bernie Sanders says states should allow felons to vote from behind bars”:
While Iowa struggles on whether to restore voting rights to felons who have completed their prison sentences, Sen. Bernie Sanders said people convicted of felonies should never lose access to the ballot box in the first place.
At a town hall meeting in Muscatine’s West Middle School gymnasium Saturday, the Vermont senator was asked whether the imprisoned should have the right to vote. Only his home state and Maine allow felons to vote from behind bars.
“I think that is absolutely the direction we should go,” he said.
While most states disenfranchise felons, Sanders said the convicted still have a right to participate in elections.
“In my state, what we do is separate. You’re paying a price, you committed a crime, you’re in jail. That’s bad,” he said. “But you’re still living in American society and you have a right to vote. I believe in that, yes, I do.”
