    Your belief is women are incapable of examining their finances and comparing cause and effect to a candidates position?

    Your belief is women are incapable of comparing their values to a candidates social platform?

    Your belief is women cannot study world politics and decide what foreign policy actions support America's best interest?

    Have you ever met a real live women?

    Hows the view from your high horse?

    Forcing the uneducated to vote does not help anyone. Can you force people to educate themselves then vote? Still you have the question, should you?

    There are "uneducated" voters of any ideology.

    Whatever the case, no one should be forced to vote.

    Aren't the majority of people who vote un-educated as it is? I'm willing to bet half of the votes cast are based on a person's "feelings" towards a candidate, not his actual beliefs or proposed policies. George W. Bush for example???

    That's pretty hackish and ignorant, imo.

    So the solution is to increase this number? I don't really get it. How does more people voting lead to a "healthier" democracy?

    The view from up here is quite nice and it keeps me from getting my shoes messy in the **** and puke that is the basis of American society today.

    Yes, I have met many real, live women. The answers to your first three questions are irrelevant, because even if one is to assume that a woman COULD do all of those things, by her gender she SHOULD NOT do those things. That is not a woman's place. Never has been and never will be.
