Women's Right to Vote, the Beginning of the End for America?
Chico Enterprise Record ^ | 3/29/09 | OneVike

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.

My wife Mrs. OneVike, asked me when she read this,

"Why do you insist on messing with the hornet nets?".

I looked at her and said with a smile,

Because it's fun.

Well anyway, this should be fun.

The only vote women should have is whether to cook beef or chicken for dinner.

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.

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.

Yeah, it hurt. But in a span of very few years, we also got the direct election of Senators, another amendment to allow a federal income tax, and the creation of the Federal Reserve.

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.

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.

Mrs. OneVike agrees with me. While she is as conservative as I am, she would willingly give up her right to vote if we rescinded the 19th amendment. She knows that it would be good for the country in the long run.

Alas, as I said it would be easier to hold back the rising waters of the Red River then to rescind the 19th amendment.

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.

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.

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.

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.
