I understood that, hence my menstruation comments.No folks, I don't actually support revoking women's right to vote. It's a nice theory to toy with, and the data on voting trends of married-vs-single women are true, but it's just not going to happen.
And the reason for the passage of that amendment, and subsequent ones, was that the fundamental right to vote was being infringed upon and had to be protected constitutionally from those who would construe that certain rights, retained by the people, that were not enumerated in the constitution were therefore denied or disparaged.
We already have the rich buying the time and attention of our elected representatives using "campaign contributions", often at the expense of the rest of us. What is a poor or middle class person to do to be heard?
I submit that we alre already disenfranchised to a large extent.
What happened to the battle cry of "No taxation without representation"?
Has it been replaced by "Representation based on taxation"?
Or is it the new version of the golden rule? as in, those who have the gold make the rules....That is a dangerous path.

Truth rings hollow in empty heads.
We should abolish the income tax and replace it with something else.
At worst a flat tax.
I do believe the voting age should be raised to 25 except for those in the military, or have served a minimum of three years.
Also, seventy-five years and older should have their political driving licenses revoked.
They can run for office, but not vote.
I AM DEPLORABLE.
