Quotes for Women, By Women - Get Out and Vote!!

"We've got a generation now who were born with semi-equality. They don't know how it was before, so they think, this isn't too bad. We're working. We have our attaché cases and our three-piece suits. I get very disgusted with the younger generation of women. We had a torch to pass, and they are just sitting there. They don't realize it can be taken away. Things are going to have to get worse before they join in fighting the battle."  ~Erma Bombeck, Author (1927-1996)

"The young women of today, free to study, to speak, to write, to choose their occupation, should remember that every inch of this freedom was bought for them at a great price. It is for them to show their gratitude by helping onward the reforms of their own times, by spreading the light of freedom and of truth still wider. The debt that each generation owes to the past it must pay to the future."
~Abigail Scott Duniway (1834-1915) Suffrage organizer in the Pacific Northwest

"The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any."
~ Alice Walker

Dating Advice 101

August 26, 1920

Women have had the right to vote in the
United States of America for only 92 years!

"On Election Day in 1920, millions of American women exercised their right to vote for the first time. It took activists and reformers nearly 100 years to win that right, and the campaign was not easy: Disagreements over strategy threatened to cripple the movement more than once. But on August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was finally ratified, enfranchising all American women and declaring for the first time that they, like men, deserve all the rights and responsibilities of citizenship."

Exercise your right to vote!

Democrat or Republican? Not me!

This was written in 2002. Sounds like it was written yesterday. Voting Republican or Democrat is NOT going to change ANYTHING!  

We need a big change in this country. Stop voting for the lesser of two evils. Neither party is for "the people"...they are only in it for their own political career and to pay back favors for them getting there!   Instead, do a "write-in" and vote for them.  Even though they will probably not win, high numbers of write-ins will get the message out there that this country is tired of the "status-quo".  Neither parties are what they used to be.  Campaigns are all about mud-slinging lies and falsehoods, nothing else.  Both parties claim they will bring jobs back, cut taxes, etc.  Yeah, right.  Like they have a say so in any of that.  It's scary to see people idolizing these candidates, as if they're going to save them personally.  Get a clue.  They do NOT care about you, unless you're one of the 1 percent and are contributing to their campaign funds.  Stop following blindly and start voting for someone that WILL make a difference.
