Ann Coulter certainly is one of the more sour witches out there today. The left loves to hate her and with good reason.
But her point is interesting and it can be heard more often in some circles, also by other women.
Does universal suffrage work? Probably not.
It’s not just about women (although the female vote is probably not beneficial), but also the young.
The basic idea behind universal suffrage is that voting is a right. But it is not: it’s a responsibility for a fairly important societal function and it is quite obvious that not all are equally capable of voting reasonably.
At the moment in the United States 55% of the vote is female. While women receive more from the State then they pay in taxes. So men pay more than 100% of all taxation, but they are represented by only 45% of the vote. Clearly this is wrong.
To put it very bluntly: men are picking up the tab for what women were fooled into voting for. The US offically left the British Empire because of taxation without representation.
The female vote has seen the rise of the all pervading nanny State during the 20th century. Women are more collectivist and more susceptible to Government propaganda (and commercial marketing too).
Women are certainly not more ‘peaceful’ as witnessed by the rampage the US Empire has been on during the era of universal suffrage.
Occasionally we also hear about giving the vote to younger people. Here’s the agenda as described in the Protocols:
“To secure this we must have everybody vote without distinction of classes and qualifications, in order to establish an absolute majority, which cannot be got from the educated propertied classes.”
The problem with young people voting is obvious: they’re clueless. Also, they’re still very dependent society and not yet very productive.
How could the system be reformed? Perhaps it’s a good idea to have only heads of households older than 30 vote.
People living alone would be able to vote, women too. People living in families would decide among themselves who is the ‘head of the household’. This would probably normally be the man, and sometimes the woman. The head of the household would vote for the entire family, where each child is half a vote and each adult a full vote. A family of four with two children would thus have three votes, casted by the ‘head of the household’, who would vote according to his own conscience with the interests of his family in mind.
This would solve the problem of the female majority and inexperienced people voting.
