Women Will Elect the Next President
Human Events ^ | 9/20/2007 | Ericka Andersen

Posted on 09/20/2007 7:17:05 AM PDT by HoosierGirl25

Fact: 54% of voters in the 2004 election were women and that’s good news for Hillary Clinton (D-NY). According to various news reports, Clinton employs six full-time staffers specifically for women’s outreach -- more than any other candidate -- to reel in the female vote.

For now, Clinton leads Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) in the Democratic race by a 42-23% (according to the latest RCP poll) margin and will likely take the nomination for 2008. She knows how critical that female vote is, which is why she participated in a Women in Public Policy (WIPP) event yesterday. Clinton used the opportunity to tout her freshly unveiled healthcare agenda.

I would have thought that would be good news for John Edwards.
After all, girls do like ponies.

When women find out how long they will have to wait for their child to see a doctor, that will be the end of that. The kids can’t sit still anymore.

Have been saying for years that they shouldn’t have gotten the vote. (And I’m a woman). They’re cancelling out their husbands vote besides. They’re ONE ISSUE people and miss the big picture.

I have ten woman cousins between the ages of 18 and 50. Not one will vote for Hillary. Comments include “bitch,” “liar,” “stayed with Bill for her own political gain,” “makes women look stupid,” “tyrant,” and “I don’t trust her.”

For decades the media has been saying that women will decide the next election. However, AFTER the election they never seem to be able to document it (except for the nonsense about soccer moms electing BJ in 1992).

The think with Hitlery is that she is the most polarizing person in modern American history. Most people either lover her or hate her, very few people have no opinion. The women who hate Hitlery are not going to vote for her no matter what.

“Have been saying for years that they shouldn’t have gotten the vote. (And I’m a woman). They’re cancelling out their husbands vote besides. They’re ONE ISSUE people and miss the big picture.”

That takes guts for you to post that. In general I agree with you. The problem is, it’s not true for all women. I’d be more in favor of a voter competence test. Once a year, a simple current events test. You pass, you’re in, you fail, you get 1 or 2 retries, and then it’s wait until next year.
To me that seems reasonable, and logical, therefore, it will never, ever happen.

Like heck she does! Ann Coulter said the same thing. So does John Lott and they're right.

For the sake of America, we should hope there are enough married women (who tend to vote Republican) over single women (who tend to vote Democratic).

Considering that it’s men who have ushered socialism/progressivism into this country, and men (Dewey et al) who corrupted education, and men who continually screw up the major cities, I think we should ban men from running for office. /s

I really dislike stereotyped thinking - it shows a lack of intellectual capacity.

The womens movement set out to prove how independent and intelligent we are. Does that stop with our ability to think and reason ? Just because a candidate is a women an assumption should not be made that women will vote for her.

It doesn’t take guts - it’s easy to spout a stereotype and much harder to think.

The voter competence test used to be property ownership - if you could accumulate a few assets, you could vote. It tended to cut out the felons, drunks, bums, and shiftless. Now those people just vote democrat.

The rise of socialism in this country coincides with teh women's suffrage movement.

Were men involved? Sure, men pandering to women.

I am a woman, and many of the women I know would not vote for Hillary. There are also a good % of women who are fun owners or supporters of NRA. :)

And then they act like whatever group is going to decide the election is somehow going to vote as a united block.

What they will never admit to is their desire to marginalize white, middle class male voters.

“I really dislike stereotyped thinking - it shows a lack of intellectual capacity.”

Stereotypes usually come about due to a basis in fact. Not all Arabs are terrorists, but most terrorists are Arab. If I’m at an airport trying to find someone who is likely to blow up a plane, should I search the 86 year old white woman, or the 35 year old Arab male?
Where stereotypes become a problem is when policy becomes absolute based on stereotypes. That’s dangerous and wrong, e.g. denying all women the vote simply because many are not informed. But, it doesn’t mean that many, maybe even most women, will freely admit, they are “not political”.

I have no intent to defame anyone, but the simple undeniable truth is that the upsurge of entitlement and free ride mentality in this country started immediately after women were given the vote.

I don't believe that the Presidential election will be decided by ballots cast in November, 2008. I believe it has already been decided - there will be an exercise carried out by the public as usual, but the vote will come out the way the Powers That Be wants it to. Whether they've chosen Hillary or Fred or Rudy to be their figurehead, policy decisions from 2009-2012 will also come out pretty much the same way.

Therefore, there's no need to stress out over the election, or whether some group or another appears to be voting like idiots - the Empire will remain in the same hands it has been in since Reagan left office.

“The voter competence test used to be property ownership - if you could accumulate a few assets, you could vote. “

Not all bad, but I think that an information test would be superior to a means test. People, reasonably bright people, can not be property owners for a variety of reasons. Information is freely available. Consume it, and be able to make some small amount of sense of it, and you should be allowed to vote, without regard to race, gender, or social class.

Clearly you have not studied history. When was suffrage - 19th amendment ? It was passed in 1919.

When was the progressive party aka socialists active in American politics ? Starting before 1912.

When did Teddy Roosevelt get elected president ? 1901 and 1904. Who was the leader of the progressive party ? TR. Did women vote in those elections ? No.

WHo was elected in 1912 - the progressive, Wilson. % women voting for him ? 0%

Need any more history lessons ?

Those who do not know their history are condemned to poor thinking and repeating leftist shibboleths.

Challenging a stereotype is the easiest of all. Come up with one exception and you're a genius. Forget the vast majority of the time the stereotype holds true.

Virtually all the women in my family hunt, including my two nieces (19 & 21 years old) who hunt and skeet shoot regularly. Those that don't hunt are married to hunters. No Hillary voters around here - matter of fact, none of the women I know can stand the sight of her.

However, I do have a few girl- friends who are stupid enough to go with what MSN tells them and they might vote for Hillary! My husband, dad, uncles, sons, brother-in-laws, boss, father-in-law, pastor, neighbor will not vote for Hillary under any circumstance. So out of all the people I love and know, the R’s have it with my group.

Sadly, too many women's day care providers and public screwl teachers and PWed hubbies take care of those things now. So this won't register.

Stereotypes are as old as human culture itself. They reflect ideas that groups of people hold about others who are different from them. But most stereotypes tend to make us feel superior in some way to the person or group being stereotyped. Stereotypes ignore the uniqueness of individuals by painting all members of a group with the same brush. It’s faster and easier to use a stereotype to characterize a person or situation, than it is to provide a more complex explanation.

As I said, stereotypes work for those who don’t like to think. You see, you gave a more complex explanation, unlike the original poster who made a broad-brush, one sentence statement.

Your example about Muslims is wrong - that’s not stereotyping, that’s profiling.
