Many folks may not realize its not only ex-convicts , Disenfranchisement is happening to The GLBTQ Community and any persons citizens of United States than is not making 350.000 or more a year, to bad most have not figured this out our Government has stopped working for we the people and began we the Corporation, if we do do something quick unfortunately we will become the next communist country, because we trusted folks we elected that only had concern for the greed of how much and how fast they can get with no morels and scruples. our current president is poster child for that statement. he leading this county down a very dark and dangerousTrumps Broken Promises road.
On Saturday, Donald Trump marks the 100th day of his presidency, and finds his approval ratings much lower than any of his modern predecessors.
One reason for this could be perceptions about his accountability. To become president, Trump made a lot of promises to a lot of people — 663, in fact. In just 100 days of what would be 1,461 days of a first term, Donald Trump has broken 80 promises he made before he was sworn in.
The White House, and Trump in particular, have placed a great deal of emphasis on the administration’s accomplishments in the first 100 days. He signed a one-week extension to keep the government open on Friday night, for instance. There is a brand-new section on the White House website devoted to the “historic pace” at which Trump “is keeping his promises to the American people.”
Disenfranchisement Felony disenfranchisement is the exclusion from voting of people otherwise eligible to vote (known as disfranchisement) due to conviction of a criminal offense, usually restricted to the more serious class of crimes:felonies. Jurisdictions vary as to whether they make such disfranchisement permanent, or restore suffrage after a person has served a sentence, or completed parole or probation. Affected individuals suffer “collateral consequences“ including loss of access to jobs, housing, and other facilities.

And the reason I brought this subject up was some information read while studying at law library . and it got me to thinking about how in an age where we have instant access we judge so quickly by information obtained over the web, And then it also dawned on me that look even if a person convicted of crime once he has successfully served his sentence in law books clearly states the rights of that person are to be re-instated but in today’s world that is pushed to the wayside and ignored, and why , then it hit me something President Reagan said awhile back, Biggest problem in our Country is the Government, and with this coming election were really seeing how little the people running for highest office in the land act and care about the concerns of the nation and it’s people , sad really how self-centered , egotistical and callous theses perspective people have become,
I’ve seen kids running for class president have more integrity, honor and compassion, and maybe the current Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump need to learn how to get back to the basics. and start over, because as it stands these type of people will eventually cause this great nation to become so divided that the only way to reconcile differences with be another bloody civil war.because the example of disenfranchisement is happening between the people and their government.and it seems the people in government all they want is more control over the people were there supposed to helping then and not controlling them.
Under the law of nature, all men are born free, every one comes into the world with a right to his own person, which includes the liberty of moving and using it at his own will. This is what is called personal liberty, and is given him by the author of nature, because necessary for his own sustenance.
Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual. Thomas Jefferson

now I’m also going to discuss little bit about some of my own personal views , since I’ve been transgender all my life and I hope some of this information serves as education and enlightens some that might be cloudy about some of the perceptions Imitation and I say that because I’m a male to female transgender woman, but all in all my greatest compliment will be that in my life I chose to imitate what I Perceive myself, while some may say you have screw loose, well guess what, we all have quirks and oddities about each and everyone of us, I’ve chosen not to hide and lye about whom the real me is, and yes I pay a horrible price by the way i’m treated, looked over on jobs i’m clearly qualified for but because so many are unwilling to hire a transgender person, well guess what there loss ,at least i’m upfront and honest can many of them say the same.and remember there’s a saying, That quote is attributed to the German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche. Actually, he said it much more eloquently: “Friedrich Nietzsche That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.” It turns out that he was right. I truly believe in that saying and have always endeavored to push ahead no matter what others thought.
