Should women vote?

Emo’s?  What are emo’s?  People who run their lives strictly on emotion: emo’s!  As we have always known, women are suckers for a tear-jerking story, they are much more big-hearted and, therefore, are more likely to vote with their, dare I say, emotions!

Thanks to emotion and women: government grows out of control, according to John R. Lott, author of Freedomnomics!  And I think he is right!   Look at this:

For decades, polls have shown that women as a group vote differently than men. Without the women’s vote, Republicans would have swept every presidential race but one between 1968 and 2004.

Women were much more opposed to the 1996 federal welfare reforms, which mandated time limits for receiving welfare and imposed some work requirements on welfare recipients. Women are also more supportive of Medicare, Social Security and educational expenditures.

Hence, single women who believe they may marry in the future, as well as married women who most fear divorce, look to the government as a form of protection against this risk from a possible divorce: a more progressive tax system and other government transfers of wealth from rich to poor. The more certain a woman is that she doesn’t risk divorce, the more likely she is to oppose government transfers.

Even after accounting for a range of other factors — such as industrialization, urbanization, education and income — the impact of granting of women’s suffrage on per capita state government expenditures and revenue was startling. Per capita state government spending after accounting for inflation had been flat or falling during the 10 years before women began voting. But state governments started expanding the first year after women voted and continued growing until within 11 years real per capita spending had more than doubled. The increase in government spending and revenue started immediately after women started voting.

Either we get these single women married, change our voting laws or it is over for America and you can say hello to an Obama Presidency and Socialism.  And “Sex and the City” will be the #1 movie this weekend-holy crap!!
