Resistbot Petition: Felon for President

An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Felon for President

31 so far! Help us get to 50 signers!

I hope this letter finds you well. I'm writing to express my strong opinion regarding the eligibility of convicted felons to run for the esteemed position of President of the United States. In my view, allowing a convicted felon to run for the presidency undermines the integrity of the highest office in the land. The role of the president demands the utmost integrity, trustworthiness, and respect for the law. Allowing someone with a criminal record to hold such a position sets a dangerous precedent and sends the wrong message to the American people and the world at large. Convicted felons have already demonstrated a serious disregard for the laws and values that uphold our society. Allowing them to potentially occupy the highest office in the nation not only undermines the principles of justice but also raises significant concerns about their ability to uphold the Constitution and faithfully execute the duties of the presidency. Furthermore, the presidency requires a high level of public trust and moral authority. Electing a convicted felon to this position could erode public confidence in the government and diminish the credibility of the United States on the world stage. While I believe in the importance of second chances and rehabilitation, I also believe that certain positions, such as the presidency, require individuals of the highest moral character and ethical standards. Allowing convicted felons to run for president would compromise these standards and diminish the honor and prestige of the office. In conclusion, I firmly believe that convicted felons should not be allowed to run for President of the United States. Upholding the integrity and credibility of our highest office is paramount, and allowing individuals with a criminal record to hold such a position would be detrimental to the values and principles upon which our nation was founded. Thank you for considering my perspective on this important issue.
