Skip to comments.Women's Right to Vote, the Beginning of the End for America?
Posted on 03/29/2009 5:51:07 PM PDT by OneVike
From the day the founding Fathers risked their liberty and life by signing the Declaration of Independence, there has been those who have wanted to sink this great ship called the United States of America. Well 143 years later the good ship America took a torpedo hit that at the time seemed like just another glancing blow. What many still consider the greatest step forward in equality for the sexes, was more then just a glancing blow however. It was in fact a deadly strike that entered the very heart of the ship and has been smoldering since. The damage caused by the 19th amendment was slow in its destruction, but after almost 100 years we can now see how complete the destruction really was.

You’re gonna get it now.......
ok, you ask for it.....
oh never mind it would only start another war....
Yes. I firmly believe it was a major step towards the destruction of America.
Well I can think of a few women that shouldn’t be in office. And I’m ok with my wife being able to vote, as long as she votes for who I tell her too. :)
It’s dangerous to make broad generalizations. But it is true. Women tend more to think emotionally than men do. And our government today would be much more conservative had women never been allowed to vote.
Ann Coulter has said that if women couldn’t vote, we’d never see a Democrat in the White House again.
That certainly changed the whole course of elections.
I would say the bigger change occurred when all people could vote and not just land owners. Our problems today can be pointed to opening up voting to people who have not clue as to economics.
Yes, the downfall of America began with the women’s right to vote.
You ain’t never never gonna get any the rest of your life.
stop drinking all that kool-aid
That may or may not be true. If women couldn’t vote, democrats would be forced to appeal to a different kind of electorate.
Liberal women have no problem saying men should not have a voice.
Especially on issues like abortion.
No nation based on freedom and liberty was going to withstand this onslaught indefinitely. It took about 100 years, but we finally have more leaks in the dike than we can plug.
You got bells the size of church balls for posting this thread :)
This is a tough subject. Are we bigots just for discussing this? I can not say I disagree with the premise. Men and women are different......let me be more direct um maybe this is the one thing the muzzies got right.
Ann is absolutely correct. If we look at all the presidential elections since 1920, not one Democrat would have been elected to the White House. Just think about how things would have been different.
Yeah, and how different the electorate would be if blacks couldn’t vote, but people don’t go advocating for that. Let’s lay off the fantasy of denying women civil rights—or we’re no better than those in the Middle East who want to subjugate all Americans.
yes, gipper, when those who were not property owners and thus did not have a stake in the country were allowed to vote, that was another huge mistake.
It was a big mistake, possibly fatal. We were never intended to be a pure democracy, that we are approching that state will be our downfall.
That's quite a leap FRiend....like over the shark
if their wives see any of this, there will be a bunch that will never ever get any, every again....
as the old saying goes.....the lady holds the purse strings...and the problem is, that in men the all the blood leaves the brain when they get excited......
IMO its not about ‘denying civil rights’. IMO the vote was intended to be 1 family = 1 vote.
The UN is actively working on womens rights which translates as an attack on men. Men are seen as the root of all evil.
My father has been dead for 30 years but I still remember his saying granting women the right to vote was the greatest mistake in the history of our Republic.
Broad generalizations? C’mon. You can do better than that! V’s wife.
I posted this statement over a year ago:
If “The View” had been around when the issue was being debated, we would not have women’s suffrage today.
Many native American cultures recognized that men were driven by their hormones. They established that post menopausal women should make the major decisions for the tribe because they were the most rational and least likely to be hormone driven. I agree. Let’s allow only women who have completed menopause to vote and make all the decisions. After all, it is supported by science.
Has anyone ever noticed the damage women clergy have done to the churches into which they have been ordained?
I don't see advocacy for that anywhere in the article. OneVike makes a historical argument for what brought America to where it is today; in fact, he states that it was men who abdicated responsibility and led to this.
But in our Politically Correct times, stating a reason is viewed as accusations, advocacy, etc. If I were to say that the sun is yellow, post-modernist types would be claiming that I am being Yellow-Supremacist. Let's not go there.
How about moose? I'd suggest you don your flame retardant undies before the Palin worshipers arrive.
These comments make conservatives look like idiots. V’s wife.
My grandma once told me that she thought women shouldn’t be allowed to vote until after menopause.
Maybe, but you’re gonna be responsible for a lot of guys going nookieless and sleepin’ on the sofa.
I am a woman and I totally agree with you.
Take a look at what’s happened to news. Used to be men would get the facts, report what happened. Now that women dominate all we get are FEELINGS. I’m personally sick of seeing women quite so much. Watch old 50’s clips and it is amazing how few women are sounding off or are even in evidence - which really is refreshing.
I’m sure that is why the Taliban doesn’t allow their women to vote either.
yep......and he may get his bells rung later tonight....by the misses....
And far too many Neanderthals are out on this thread tonight. Later, knuckledraggers.
Well, from one woman to another tell Mrs. OneVike I agree with her. I would gladly give up my vote to get our country back. This road and where we are headed is not worth it.
ha ha! V’s wife.
I was wondering how long it would take for someone to get my lame joke!
Yes. Women are natures socialists.
