[[ ANN COULTER reasons it this way:
If we took away womens right to vote, wed never have to worry about another Democrat president. Its kind of a pipe dream, its a personal fantasy of mine, but I dont think its going to happen. And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women. ]]
Ms. Coulter got it right.
Women are —by their very nature — socialists.
Men, however, are largely individualists by their internal constitutions.
To men, freedom matters.
But women, on the other hand, prefer “security” and safety. Again, this is “in their nature”.
What did Mr. Franklin have to say about that subject, a few centuries ago?
I’m gettin’ old, was never that smart, and my opinion don’t count for much.
But if I had my way...
- The voting age for males would be returned to 21, with the exception of those enlisted in the military, who would be granted the privilege of voting from “age 18 upward”.
- Single females would be granted the vote when they reached the age of 30. If they married prior to age 30, females would be granted the vote subsequent to their marriage.
- Women who were serving in the military, married or unmarried, would be given voting privileges identical to males, i.e., “from age 18 upward”, and would carry such privileges subsequent to their military service.
The devolution of the republic from freedom to socialism that we have been witnessing through the early twentieth century to the present is a direct result of “granting too much suffrage” to those who had been denied it in earlier times. Unfortunately, I see no way to reverse the trend, other than to “break free” from the current republic, and reconstruct a new one that is actually a reversion to “the old ways” (of, say, the nineteenth century) — ways that are now considered misogynist, racis’, xenophobic, blah, blah, blah....
