Ladies, What Do You Want?

On November 4th, we vote. 

As women of the United States of America, we are lucky we tell ourselves.

According to the map included in an article by Caitlin Dewey for the Washington Post, 7 Ridiculous Restrictions,  it's better in Norway, Sweden and Finland.

Among places in the world where women can't vote, the Vatican.  What's up Francis?  Pope Francis, that is.   Way past time to change that.



Frankly, I'm tired of being patient.  I'm tired of conceding to the fact that at least we don't have it as bad as women in Yemen.  I'm tired of conceding to less than equal pay, people pokin' their nose into what I can and can't select when it comes to healthcare.  A friend once said, that they felt a certain candidate, had a better fiscal plan than the other.  Since along with that great fiscal plan,  other plans this candidate had, would end up excluding women from that great fiscal plan, I saw no reason to vote for him.

Fact is I will not vote for anyone that doesn't take into account the welfare of 50.8% of the US population, and doesn't put to forefront all the issues, that I care about. 

So, that's what goes into my choices, and who I decide to vote for.

How do you decide?

Above all, please vote.   It does matter.
