image for Controversy Over Felons' Right to Vote Dwarfed by Bigger Question
Should war criminals be allowed to live?

Some states allow imprisoned felons to vote, others only parolees, some only probationnaires and then there are those that make you pay your full debt to society.

In two states, Kentucky and Virginia, you are never allowed to vote again, but a bigger question has emeged in this year's Presidential election.

Should war criminals be allowed to vote? Should they be permitted to run for office? And if you voted to send more than 4,000 Americans to their deaths in a totally unnecessary war, should you be allowed to be President?

For that matter, should you be allowed to live?
