Ladies, get ready to run ... to the polls

Soon the “end-of-summer sales” will be starting. I have some advice for the women in this country. 

Buy shoes! Lots of shoes! Especially running shoes, and when the next election comes around, run, don’t walk to the polls. Become educated and informed, and take a look at all the legislation that is being passed around this country by Republican men against women’s rights.

Women have a strong influence in the voting booth, so make sure you use it and don’t sit this next election out. Otherwise, you may have a bunch of Republican males trying to make you barefoot next! 

I find it appalling the ignorance of some of the male gender out there when it comes to their knowledge of women. We need to stop ignorant men from making decisions for women. Women have fought hard for their rights in history. We still have a ways to go, but it should not be backwards. It is more important than ever to take a stand against these Neanderthal males. 

If you watch the volume of TV ads, you are constantly bombarded with male sexual stimulation ads. I believe it has infected some of these male brains. These laws are being passed wherever there is a Republican majority to do so. That tells you that their majority needs to be changed. 

It is one thing to be pro-life, but what they are doing is affecting millions of women’s health issues, by limiting their access to health care. Planned Parenthood, through its programs, limits unwanted pregnancies and abortions. It does not promote abortions. Let’s ban all the male sex drugs on the market and see how they like that! So, run, don’t walk, to the voting booth and vote these ignorant guys OUT!
