    Ahem.. just because a woman is single does not mean that she is depending on the government for ****.

    Where do you get these hairbrained ideas??

    So while you say "typically" to remove responsibility from yourself by painting all with the same brush - you stated above that single women should be denied voting privileges.

    Are you really that Neanderthal'ish?

    Did you look at the link I left or no.

    Did you read anything else I said other than the felon portion?

    But not all felonies should deprive people of the right to vote.

    Since women who are single or commit fiscal infidelity increase the size of government, which in turn further harms the family and the individual, such women are a source of harm and should be disempowered from creating further damage.
    LMFAO

    It would be better served to disallow anyone on public assistance. Gender is irrelevant, marital status is irrelevant. There are many 100s of thousands of single women quite able to care for ourselves, tyvm. So you can take your outdated, sexist stereotype and shove it up your ass.

    I was perfectly civil in my response to you. Is that the only thing you have to say to me or would you like to expound more upon your OUT dated ideas of a woman's "place" in society?

    Well in the general sence, since 17 and under are not allowed to vote it means that the goverment can decide the qualifications thus it becomes a privilege.

    If you feel you're capable of challenging my position on an intellectual level then please feel free to try. I claimed that women would use the government for money, not for thinking. Give it your best

    I claimed that expanding government was an established voting trend of single women, and here's a link:

    http://www.gqrr.com/index.php?ID=2282



    As Democrat policies such as Universal Health Care expand government, while Republican policies such as school vouchers reduce the size of government, and that these examples represent the typical difference between the Left and the Right, this graph clearly represents my claim of single women expanding government.

    Indeed, ie, if you take from the workers and give to the bosses.

    Obviously you've never been a boss.
