    Drumpf campaign apparatchiks have circulated on twitter a map of the USA, illustrating the possible outcome of the 2016 presidential election if only men voted.


    I wonder if Donaldo the Greatest would fight to repeal the 19th Amendment, in order to sandbag his presidential chances for 2020 if elected in 2016? ;)

    Not saying good or bad, but go back 180 years, what would this country look like politically and institutionally if the voters were limited to white males with property. Poll taxes in New Hampshire had to be paid in cash in order to vote and were the equivalent of several days pay.

    Interesting point.

    The social landscape would probably be very different in some ways, and similar in others. Regardless....there'll be winners and losers from such an arrangement, and usually the same kind of winners seem to float to the top regardless of whatever system is in place.

    In just a few short years we allowed women to vote , then were allowed to hold office , now run for prez , now look what we got .
    This is not meant to disrespect any women here on the forum , or women anywhere, just an observation . If you wanted a woman prez , couldn't we find a more true blooded American woman ? I'm really worried about the future of our country .

    As long as there's still free porn, I won't complain.

    Just joking, @Ganado ...
    No, I'm not.
    Yeah, lol I am. No, really. ;)

    @SB21 I am fairly certain this world and this country especially for that matter, is seriously screwed (and it wasn't women who did it) ...

    Excuse me............. we allowed black men to vote, hold office etc. and look at what we got. Do not throw this mess at women's feet. That is BS. Black men were allowed to vote prior to women and black men have a higher desertion of their children then women. Really? If you want a war of the sexes, fine. I am ready.

    What if circus carnies only voted? Someone pull up that map. The bearded woman? Liberal or conservative? These are the thoughts that keep me up at night.

    It is interesting to see how this map is used to slam Trump.....

    This map was used all over the news the last couple of days, in conjunction to a map showing what it would look like if just women voted........... of course they showed opposite results to each extreme. Men and women think differently on a lot of subjects which includes their political views and goals.

    Plus women are just crazy.... don't mess with them. [loco]

    Okay, back to my corner.... [peep]

    What if only people who didn't care about power or money or pandering to whichever demographic screamed the loudest, were allowed to run for political office? What if people were nominated to run for office based on their sincere beliefs, proven actions, and ability to tell the frikkin truth instead of how well they can read off a teleprompter, or if they look good in a skirt? Imagine what the landscape would look like then, regardless of who voted?

    Ahh, if wishes were wings frogs would not bump their asses when they hopped.

    Looking at that map I think Trump needs to reach out and grab a few women ... [peep] ...politically, that is...

    I don't give a flying eff what somebody has between their legs* - it's what's between their ears that counts.

    That liberal rag HuffPo picked up on this story and ran with it, saying that Trump supporters are actually trending the topic to repeal the 19th on Twitter. Only problem, go on Twitter and look. There aren't any Trump supporters saying that except the two that the HuffPo article found, and neither of those accounts have the posts up anymore (probably trolling). Now it's a Twitter circle jerk of progressives talking about how crazy it is that Trump supporters want to repeal the 19th and feeling superior. Beating up strawmen is a bit of a progressive hobby, ain't it?

    I'm doubtful that the 19th would be repealed, even if DT so desired it. Though it would probably help sandbag his presidency into a second term, in the event that he wins this election. Women's suffrage isn't like Prohibition was. Prohibition was demonstrably harmful to the nation, and created many more problems than it attempted to solve....women voting....well that just enables both genders the freedom to vote on who builds their nation, or screws it up, rather than just men alone. ;)

    Yeah I don't think anyone seriously thinks that repealing the 19th would ever happen, even if you could advance a convincing argument for it - and I don't think such an argument exists.

    That makes what HuffPo did even more reprehensible in my opinion. No sense of proportion or even basic fact checking, and yet their website traffic and influence on the Left is HUGE.

    Dilute the blame. Yeah, that'll work.

    it will be repealed if certain people get into power... but then again the entire Constitution will be repealed if they have their way... so?

    chelloveck Diabolus Causidicus

    Is the undiluted blame of men screwing up, any worse or any better than the shared blame of men and women screwing up, co-jointly? The alternative possibility, is to remove male suffrage, and allow women to take the undiluted blame for screwing up. Now that would be an experiment worth witnessing! :ROFLMAO:

    shoot...when you put it that way, I guess I gotta suck it up and live with Hillary as President...cuz I like women too much to go killing them all off or locking them in my basement just to get Trump elected.

    but then again...if I put some effort into it I am sure I could free up more room in my basement...

    Well the certain people who would repeal the 19th would be on the Right, as the Left needs women voting to get into office. The Left simply has no incentive to remove women from voting. If anything, as the chart shows, the Left would want to remove MEN from the voting booth, not women lol
