    when you cannot stay on subject, and have to divert to libertarianism, tea party, this tells me you are frustrated and desperate to post something and make yourself feel better.

    The Power of the 19th Amendment, Then and Now

    The Power of the 19th Amendment, Then and Now*|*Jason Ritchie

    Today is Women's Equality Day, which marks the 94th anniversary of the 19th Amendment that guaranteed women the right to vote. It was the culmination of a long struggle by generations of women who fought for equal access to the promise of the American Dream. The right to vote, they believed, was the main hurdle in the way of equality. Once political equality was achieved, social and economic equality would soon follow. Despite the myriad of successes women have achieved since then, true equality remains a distant dream.

    http://www.history.com/this-day-in-h...ndment-adopted
    The 19th Amendment, guaranteeing women the right to vote,
    is formally adopted into the U.S. Constitution by proclamation of Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby. The amendment was the culmination of more than 70 years of struggle by woman suffragists. Its two sections read simply: “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex” and “Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.”

    On the contrary - I am having a good old time exposing your nonsense.

    You are just embarrassed you got caught in your own trap.

    It is beyond funny how you pretend you can try to exchange barbs and quips with me like you did moments ago only to get skewered by me trying your own post right back at you like the laughter comments climaxing in 982 where you step right into it. Then all the sudden its this phony 'but... but ... but ... you're not staying on topic... and that's not playing fair' whining and crying and sobbing.

    Its beyond hilarious.

    this isn't rocket science.
    The hypothetical in the OP only states that the people of Texas by referendum might vote to secede in some distant make believe future. It said just like in Scotland. Well Texas is not just like Scotland by any stretch of imagination. The dynamics of UK politics is a lot different than US politics.

    Last year the most predominate secessionist ran for the Governors office. He couldnt make it past the Republican primaries. He got only 1.4% (19,022) of the vote. Good ole Larry SECEDE Kilgore is a radical and the poster boy for the Texas secession movement.

    That is great that you personally are not a warmonger. But you can only speak for yourself. The actual Texans obsessed with secession are a bit more committed than you are.

    yes it is for you, that you would have to bring the tea party and libertarianism into this thread which has nothing to do with those two things, but instead made you feel better about yourself.

    you seem to do these things from time to time.....jump into different areas which are not being discussed, but i have become accustomed to it but it still makes me laugh when i see it.
