Women and Government
“We’ve got bridges and roads in need of repair and thousands of people in need of work. Why aren’t we rebuilding America?” asks Warren, a professor at Harvard Law School who served in the Obama administration. “Our competitors are putting people to work, building a future. China invests 9% of its GDP in infrastructure. America? We’re at just 2.4%. We can do better.”
This is Massachusetts’ Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren’s ridiculous idea for putting workers back to work in bankrupt America. Take a look at one of her meet and greets starting at about 50 seconds into this video: Nobody got rich on their own. If her words sounded familiar it’s because Obama plagiarized them: You didn’t build that. It smacks of class envy. The bottom line is she thinks government has to be in the mix, and government must get some of the credit. Government helps. Government cares. So, do it like China, she says. Well…
Vast new cities of apartments and shops are being built across China at a rate of ten a year, but they remain almost completely uninhabited ghost towns. It’s all part of the government’s efforts to keep the economy booming, and there are many people who would love to move in, but it’s simply too expensive for most.

Ms. Warren’s vision of American workers is the elimination of the middle class leaving a Marxist two-class proletariat and bourgeoisie, with her being in the bourgeoisie of course. This is the end toward which Ms. Warren and her Democratic ilk excitedly move. Vox Day once suggested that many women are fascists at heart while claiming that women’s suffrage leads to loss of individual freedom. I’ve wrestled with this, while at the same time wondering if it were true why would it be so. One predominate and obvious fact comes to mind, women are women and not men. Egalitarianism is rampant, and runs roughshod over this simple but inescapable fact. Women don’t think or act as men do, nor should they. This difference used to be the origin of that which, as the phrase goes, makes the world go round, at least until the LGBT crowd leveraged egalitarianism for themselves, but I digress. On balance, women’s political views are different than men because women view the role of government differently. Some women view “Mother Government” as provider, security and a remedy for perceived inequities and unfairness. Government’s only legitimate role is to secure the God given rights of the people.
My views on women in politics have changed. Women’s suffrage, in its current form, is a mistake in the democratic republic form of government such as ours. I’m suspect of women government office holders, particularly at the higher levels of government and most particularly in judicial roles. I’ve become very skeptical of how women judge law. Perhaps at some point I will elaborate as to the reasons, but suffice to say that I base my reasoning on empirical evidence. Of course, these are the sort of observations which wouldn’t “fly”, as it were, on Facebook or Twitter because of the typical readership on those forums. It is my opinion that much of the current trend toward leftist legislation on a national level is due in large part to the sentiments of women in positions of influence.
