So, #RepealThe19thAmendment was a thing temporarily on Twitter.
Normally, it’s not worth my effort to play around with this nonsense, but given some of the other crazy things we’ve been hearing this election cycle from the Trump camp….
No, I’m not ignoring it.
After all, Trump has already suggested that he is all for the concept of curtailing the First Amendment, through tort reform. At least that’s what one must assume, since he said that he wants to make it easier for him (he didn’t mention anyone else) to file suit against the evil journalists who *gasp* accurately report what he actually says.
So, it’s not out of the question, given his latest round of venom against women, that he honestly might be tossing the idea of repealing women’s right to vote. Yes, you do need to read the previous sentence a couple times. Let it sink in. I’ll make it easier for you.

Got that one?
Before anyone starts saying it’s ridiculous, please remember, most of the people who would say that Trump would NEVER try such a stunt are the same people who have been complaining about Obama with his phone and his pen.
Please remember that our government is perpetually on a slippery slope. Each time the people allow our leaders to get away with something, particularly the president, the next ones down the line tend to push those limits. Presidents are like toddlers – they’re constantly trying to push the people to let them get away with more, and usually they do.
Think about that, and take a look at the social media (hopefully) nonsense about removing women’s right to vote.
