Pelosi: America Does Not Have a Woman President Because of ‘Misogyny’ and Male ‘Insecurities’

Personally I go along with the Heinlein premise in the SciFi novel Starship Troopers, that until you have honorably served a tour in the military you have not EARNED the right to either vote or serve in politics. Until you have put your arse on the line for your country you have not EARNED FULL CITIZENSHIP and have not earned the right to make decisions affecting the rest of society. That doesn't get rid of ALL of the egotistical near-do-wells but it seriously thins the herd of brainless bureaucrats and politicians. Just consider that, that basic requirement pretty much eliminates ALL of the current CONTESTANTS running for congress and the presidency. They simply would not be qualified to run.

Before you can lead and give orders, you must first learn how to follow and take orders.

There is nothing wrong with the concept of Apprenticeship, Journeyman and finally Master qualifications, so that by the time you're in a position of leadership you've actually demonstrated the necessary skills, knowledge, abilities and earned the right to exercise those abilities. Think of the brakes it would put on the elitist silver spoon instant promotion to positions of authority by wholly unqualified twerps program we're now running.

YMMV

My grandson served under the sea for several years. He is the most decent of men. I was sooo glad he got to see a lot of the world, including Israel. He is now I semester away from his engineer degree. He is wise enough to be a magnificent leader. I hope he does someday, I will probably not be alive to see it.

I'd amend that to being in a COMBAT MOS; being a typist back in D.C. while wearing the same color every day doesn't qualify anyone any better. Heck, I'd settle for having to show a draft registration card whenever someone tries to vote at any level of government (not just Federal).

I disagree. Serving in the military in any capacity is fine, as long as one wasn’t a contractor. Once you start slicing the qualifications ever-more-finely, where do you draw the line? We’re YOU ever in the military IN A COMBAT ROLE?

So according to Nancy and the DNC, the voters must vote for a woman running for office- regardless of her qualifications, likeability, background, demonstrated skills, moral positions, proposed programs and actions, leadership history, support (or lack of) of the Constitution, ….

… but only IF they are demon-crats

Hum????

So like everything else the demon-crats rave about, it comes down to not the best person for the job, but the politically correct person for the job

… forced outcomes not because of good reasons, but because of emotional tantrums

It doesn't matter to me what their skin color is or their sex. My vote is precious to me and it will not be based upon some emotionally driven demands by people that try to shame me, slander me or force me to violate my moral compass based upon some political correctness bs.

Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.” - John Quincy Adams
