Blatham, Lone Voice's comments remind me of another tactic to muffle the people's voices. BBB
That tactic being, of course, asking uncomfortable questions.
C'mon, don't be afraid. We're only talking here. That's the point of a forum, isn't it?
As I only have a short amount of time each day to log in here (I'm a dirty capitalist making money on the backs of the poor), I can't address everyone
Blatham, Hannity is a idiot. Why would you bring him up?
And why stereotype? Everyone thinks they have me pegged, simply because of the questions I ask? (Dirty capitalist or not
Blatham brings up valid points of people's tribal tendencies; indeed, why wouldn't a woman involved in the suffrage movement automatically cast her first vote for another woman? (Assuming a woman might have been on the ballot). My question involves Hillary as the BEST women's candidate
Another excellent point re MLK
But what of my question that BBB is refusing to answer?
What is it about Hillary? Do Dems consider her a self-made candidate?
Feinstein and Boxer from my state are two examples of women who 'earned' their office, in my opinion. Heck, in many a Californian's opinion.
Why are so many women blindly following a candidate who is only in the position she is in because she was first lady?
That's the truth, isn't it? I would think most women would find the idea of a candidate who reached her position based on the influence of her husband appalling, to say the least.
(Yes, she is the junior senator from New York. But does anyone truly believe Hillary would have been elected as a senator first time out without being first lady? And how does a few extra years as a senator make her more experienced than Obama?)
Is she the best woman at this time? Or, is it the fact she is a woman, plain and simple, who happens to possess the same set of political beliefs that cause so many women to blindly support her?
Why are you Dems refusing to address this?
BBB, I'm not attacking you. You've made it clear that you have contemplated your support, and I don't believe you would ever blindly support anyone. Frankly, I don't think anyone who has the wherewithal to log onto AK2 to would be a knucklehead voter.
I'm speaking of the woman who, when asked why she is voting for Hillary, replies she is doing so because they think it's time a woman is in the White House. I've had conversations with them; I've seen them interviewed on TV. They often are not aware of many of the current issues, but they know they want a woman as president.
Which, as I pointed out, makes them no better than the rednecks who always vote the white guy
