I have a hard time understanding the minds of some people, but most especially dumb ones (one of my friends told me, "The smart understand the stupid a lot more than the stupid understand the smart"). When it comes to government, they seem to think it has its own money to dole out. Or else "the rich" have trillions and trillions and trillions of dollars and all we have to do is take it from them and spread it around equally. Then things will be better, lots better.
My experience has been a lot of women are natural socialists/fascists and don't know it. When you tell them that's what they are, they don't believe it. For one thing they don't exactly know what a socialist or fascist is.
Of all the women I've met I've never seen one who truly understood economics or political science. I've met a lot who think they do, but don't. I know there are some who understand both, but they are the proverbial needle in a haystack.
Women in the past were not allowed to vote. This wasn't an oversight. I'm sure smarter guys in the past looked at what women were saying and basically said, "Holy shit! They're don't know what they're talking about!"
St. Paul went so far as to write women should not speak in public - and I've seen their embarrassing ranting and raving - and he forbid them from teaching (and I've seen what they've done to education, too).
In fact, smarter women in the past didn't want women to have the vote. They essentially said, "We've got the best job of all - we're responsible for making sure the next generation grows up to be the best they can possibly be."
For that matter, smart women don't much like other women (hell, most women hate each other) and prefer to associate with men. And most women prefer a male boss. I've seen way too many screw-up women in management. And, of course, they don't know it.
But you don't really have many women wanting to devote their lives to the next generation. It's easy to tell when this is happening: people aren't reproducing and their numbers are falling. (And why do so many of "women's issues" revolve around a) abortion b) abortion c) abortion and d) birth control?)
And for some strange reason I don't quite understand, where men go, women follow like dogs. They also seem to think men have it better than men, and if they tag along their lives will improve. I can only say I believe it is based on envy.
Of course, that tagging along doesn't mean following men into being taxi drivers or carpenters, both of which I was. It also doesn't mean following men into cigar stores, which I have seen them do, then cough and stagger out.
It does mean following men into indoor air-conditioned jobs. Yet even that is not quite right, because it doesn't apply to all women. Some end up working 12-hour overnight shifts instead of staying home with the kids. Or either they become poverty-stricken, working poorly-paid jobs at fast-food places or nursing homes. Then they have to get welfare to make ends meet - which productive workers have to involuntarily support them.
Ultimately women have cut their own throats. And wealthier women (which they became because of men) throw poorer women under the bus. And men, dumbasses that many are, have let women do these things to themselves.
A lot of women want all the advantages of being a man and a woman but don't want the responsibilities of either. The first time I told that to a women she just glared at me and didn't say a word. The man with us just looked thoughtful and said, "You know, you're right."
What would happen if women were not allowed to vote? For one thing, I doubt we'd ever have a Democratic president ever again, or many women politicians. Think the monster know as Nancy Pelosi. And if any are allowed to vote, it should only be married ones.
In fact, I cannot see a downside to women having the vote taken from them. I do see a lot of upsides, though.
