Someone (a Hillary Clinton supporter) recently asked me "Would you vote for a woman?" I actually got a little offended at the question but kept my composure. I didn't ask why such a question would be asked but considering the source of the question I'm guessing the person asking it had some pre-conceived notions about me that they wanted to explore.
This person knows that I'm more conservative than liberal and I know the person asking is just the opposite. A good person but somewhat easily swayed by the liberal media. This person believes the rhetoric that conservatives are trying to keep women barefoot and pregnant, are homophobic, want to poison the air and water, and want to starve children everywhere while denying them healthcare. I don't match that view of a conservative person nor have I ever met someone that does.
So, the simple answer to the question is...Yes, I would vote for a woman and have done so on previous occasions. That's the answer I gave to my questioner. I further told this person that I don't really care if the candidate in an election is a man or a woman, I only care that I make a good choice and select the best qualified person.
In keeping with the truth of my answer and the personal philosophy behind it I now have to ask "Is there a woman in the current U.S. Presidential Campaign I would vote for?" Hold on. Let me think about that one. Ok, my answer is "No." As far as I know there is only one woman in the current U.S. Presidential Campaign and her name is Hillary Clinton. I cannot think of a reason why I'd vote for her.....unless she were running against the Devil himself....and that would really be a tough choice....they have some similar views. However, I had a dream.
