Women in Politics

Okay, So I am on a role about Women today, but I guess you can say I feel vulnerable today like my rights being a Woman are being trumped my the zealots of Religion  and Men at that. I WILL NOT Bow Down. Where are our Representatives? There are few women in Congress.  In fact I believe the house is made up of 17% women and the Senate is made up of yes only 17% women where is our representation? Men don’t run this country like they should in fact several Women in both houses are being disrespected by their male peers. Many of the issues brought up by these women are really important yet the issues are thrown to the back burner and then forgot by the majority of congress as unimportant.  I mean really the country is made up of at least 55% women that  means there are more women then men in this country. I know there are a lot of women and men for that matter whom wouldn’t do well because they stick their proverbial foot in their mouth but there has to be professionals out there that can speak and be heard by more people.

I would run, but I just don’t have the means to do so and I could be the one to stick my proverbial foot in my mouth. You have to walk on egg shells when running for a political office and well my family isn’t perfect. I am not a christian, I had many boyfriends before I got married and I am sure they would tell everyone that I am a jealous, angry woman  even though they haven’t seen me for 15 years. I am an introvert I care for others feelings but at the same time don’t really care for other feelings when I feel strongly about something. I am for abortion which would kill me  in the polls, I am for women’s rights,  the right to worship anyway a person chooses as long as it is not harmful to others, I believe in taxes its what keeps our roads and infrastructure going, I believe in Welfare as long as they either  go to school, get on birth control, and try to better themselves (I was on welfare for a short time before I got a good job and went to school), I am for regulation of major economic firms that can make the economy collapse, I think the wealthy should pay higher taxes trickle down economics doesn’t work and they put us in this mess to begin with, I believe that the Judicial branch is just as important as the congress (they need balance), I believe that congress should not make more then the averaged person so no more than 40,000- 50,000 dollars a year +  they should pay a portion of their health care like everyone else no freebies(the average person doesn’t get freebies we pay for everything including welfare, social security, Medicare and their salaries and healthcare), I believe that if you fight for this country that you should be able to get the most freedoms at least while you serve ( the freedom to be free of violence from your fellow country men and women (sexual assault is pretty prevalent in the Military for both sexes but especially for women) They should be able to get free healthcare),  I do believe we need to recycle more and treat the planet better because so far we aren’t leaving  here and our children, and their children have to live with the consequences when we pass, I believe we need to produce more of our own goods instead of buying it from china and other countries, if we buy from ourselves we support our economy, I think people should have the right to buy food from any safe source be it raw milk, or an animal butchered from someone else. The list can go on and on.

I am by no means a feminist. I am married to a loving caring man and we have two beautiful children.  I still think my rights as a person and women trump any religious organisation or morals a business has as to whether or not I get the health care I deserve and pay for, I believe women deserve a vote  because we make up 55% of the populous. WE NEED TO SPEAK OUT AND VOICE OUR CONCERNS.

    I wanted to take the time to let you know how much i enjoyed your posting. To hear someone else echo what i have been saying was a good feeling. I also believe that the people in government should only get what an average america worker does. I do think that we need to open medicare to all citizens from birth and have the premiums taken out of your check and we need to make sure our educational system is fixed so we can have healthy children with an education ready to join the workforce. We can only keep trying to wake up the fox news zombies. again thank you for your posting and i am going to keep reading and hope you keep posting. I am way new at doing somethin like this and hope that my lacking writing skills will improve over time thank you and peace in your life
