    Should Women Have the Right to Vote?

    ...................

    The right to vote was the during the latest centennium established mostly all over the world.

    Some consider it however the worst failure done the latest millenium. Also these have the right to express themselves and their opinions. Or maybe not...?

    Of course it is tabu to question if that was right, I can imagine the hord of raging hysterics, suffragettes and lesbians trying to knock down the gates.

    I also count on that some will rage on my right to write and publish such ideas, but as I can see, it is safely within the rules.

    Of course we will get confirmed what we expect, but it should be interesting to see what people really means.

    Of course females are welcome to vote, on this poll!

    No, and neither should most men. I´m not a democrat.

    If they vote or not, if we are stuck with one-size-fits-all democracies, whoever we vote for (like here on the federal level), our vote has no weight at all.

    Voting has relevance only in smaller communities. I wouldn't mind to have women in on the process.

    Idiots, brainless people, uneducated people shouldn't be allowed to vote; female as well as male idiots.

    I shock people who know me with this: I believe that in an ideal situation (which is not true of the world now or of many people) married women should not vote and a man with a family should have more of a vote than singles. A woman should be able to trust her husband to vote for the good of the family (he would consult her and take her input into consideration). Unless she is acting head of family and then the woman should vote. On the other hand I don't think that all women should be barred from political/leadership rolls in the rare case she is suited to it. I don't think women should be encouraged to do so and to moan until there exactly as many , or more, women in office (or whatever other roll) as men is disgusting and unnatural.
    I second BW's opinion, but unfortunately even most educated people are too stupid to see the ultimate impact of what they vote in. Requiring land ownership might help but there are problems with that now.
    As if voting really counts any longer out of a small local area. eyes:
    Wake, Jotun, wake! Shake, Jotun, shake! Burn and blow, rain and snow! Wake, Jotun, wake!

    Yes, a family mans vote should count heavier than a singles.
    Such feels another kind of resonsibilty for the society, which I think is more trustworthy, as they have to consider the future of the coming generations to another degree than childless singles.

    But unfortunately even most educated people are too stupid to see the ultimate impact of what they vote in. Requiring land ownership might help but there are problems with that now.

    It would not help much to refuse the idiots to vote.
    Among Norwegian voters, 70% of those with academic educations votes red. The "radical" red party SV, consists mainly of academicals. The party is also considered to have the electors with the highest score on IQ tests...

    So sorry bw, I understand your outburst of rage, but this has nothing to do with IQ or education.

    Agreed.

    Plus, if men were to re-assume their traditional male roles as food hunters and gatherers, warriors, defenders of family and tribe, then, I, as a woman, would gladly give up any "political" rights and stick to the housework and the upbringing of children. You think I like working 10 to 8 and paying taxes or bugging my little head with everything that is wrong in the world?

    Yet, so far as the majority of modern, spoiled, passive, dependent, metrosexual men do nothing of that sort, and are unable to support themselves let alone support their family, or stay at their parents house until their mid-30s, then I will keep doing what I have to do to survive in this world, including my involvement in politics

    yes..

    and for the male, the head of the family part , i dont think that's the whole truth..
    a womans part in a family is really big.
    she has to cook, clean, take care of the kids etc,etc..
    i think a man will pick a woman of who he knows that she can handle it..
    and if she can handle bringing up her children and teaching them wrong from right , why shouldn't she has the right to vote for a better way for her children?

    Is your typo "head off" an insight into your views I in no way said a woman's role in the family was not big and extremely important. A mayor does not make decisions for a town without getting the opinion of it's inhabitants and if he makes decisions against what they think he will not be mayor long if they don't turn out to be very wise decisions. And a mayor is nothing without a town to be "head" of. It is a man's role to be more aware of the larger political story and judge what is better for his family (or take his wife's advice if she happens to be the one with the head for politics;-) A woman is in charge of the household and the man is in charge of it's interface with the larger world. They stand back to back united with the woman facing in and the man facing out. I'm talking ideal generalizations, not about all the ways that any situation can go wrong as those who like to reject all traditional rolls like to harp on.

    I don't think anyone with that many typo's should have the right to vote
