@Felix grammar nazi because Sam didn't have an issue with it, still understood what I said, we advanced the discussion without the need to nitpick on one's use of words and live happily ever after. Man, you need to chill out. Really. lol. And we are actually not even advancing the arguments anymore because we have digressed a lot by focusing on the wrong word choice. I have nothing to add here too hahaha . You can continue your conversation with the others

Haha John, sorry for the late response. I'll try to address your points in the comment. First, I think only elite democrats hang their hats on the ex felons. Others Ds, including myself, aren't really focusing on the electoral politics. Instead, we are focusing on the moral question -- that is giving people a second chance and giving them something all citizens deserve, the right to vote. Second, I don't think you meant education levels should be a requirement to voting as @FelixCulpa stipulates (although I could be wrong). So I absolutely believe criminal justice reform should be part of the equation. The problem is our legislature doesn't get much done and the constitutional ballot question only deals directly with the disenfranchisement provision. I hope that addresses your points :) Thanks for the comment

So let me get this straight; I figured out what you meant to say, even though you used the wrong word, represented your POV Fairly, and advanced this discussion without presuming to speak on your behalf, yet somehow your lack of knowledge makes me a "grammar nazi"? Explain.
