2014 & 2016: Understanding the Voting Power of Women
Well it’s final. After 50 years, $20 trillion of tax payers’ money, and the billions that have been spent by non-profit organization across the country that can’t be tracked, poverty has only declined by a small percentage.
How can $20 trillion+ be spend by Americans to reduce poverty and very little be accomplished?
Women only have to look at the dysfunctional political leadership for the last 50 years to understand why trillions have not impacted poverty. The entire process has taken the middle-class to a new low and created a lower-middle class that can’t be escaped.
What is the relationship among poverty, middle-class women / lower-middle class women, and elections results?
It’s a relationship that has and will continue to determine the outcome political elections. The relationship between those terms give politicians the ability to use mass media to create communications that result in emotional decisions from ads based on social issues that don’t deal with reality or facts and that avoid dealing with the issues that threaten the nation’s ability to stabilize. I could write for hours about how the men leading this nation created laws, policies, and regulations that developed this relationship, purposely, accidently or maybe by just through stupidity?
For example, one of the “hottest” races in the county is already using emotions but NOT reality to attract women’s votes. Sen. Mark Udall (CO) of Colorado, who is focused on women, is promoting himself as a fighter for affordable child care, equal pay, and abortion rights. He recently Tweeted: “Empowering women = key to our nation’s success.” What is he talking about?
Sen. Kay Hagan (NC) has a commercial stating not raising the minimum wage as “an insult to women.” Sen. Hagen must have forgot that women earning minimum wage don’t need it raised. It’s NOT the “root cause” of women earning low wages nor will it ever create a wage balance in the nation.
As a result of the inability of women (from both political parties) to actively get involved for generations with national, state, and local political elections, we now have the following:
- A K-12 education that has failed our young Americans.
- A higher educational system that has become the “failure factories.”
- Millions of American on food stamps
- More long-term dependent women thanks to the 1996 Welfare Reform.
- A lack of focus on national security issues.
American politicians feed off of women’s emotional votes. Politicians obsession with being “career politicians,” making money, and creating their own fame from the system are unethical and destroying the foundation of the nation.
It’s time to help out the men from the Republican machine: We need to educate again and again through mass media that American women need to start making intelligent, not emotional choices. Let’s start with National Security:
American Women’s Choice
No One Came To Help Americans; James Lankford: Benghazi
Our Children’s Security: Blueprint for Western Energy Prosperity
Women and children have always been the focus of “emotional” ads:
1976 Carter VS. Ford
1984 Reagan VS. Mondale
“Believe it or not, I believe that most of the people in Washington, D.C. who work for the government are good people. Unfortunately, I believe that most of the good people have very little power, which is monopolized in the hands of a few bad apples. That is just how the system has evolved, and it needs to change.” Jeffrey B. English, M.D.
