A Women’s Equality Day reminder: Conservative #WomenVote too

On this date in 1920, the 19th Amendment was ratified, giving liberal Democrat women the right to vote. One little-known fact lost over the years, though, is that conservative women also won the right to vote that same day, and despite reports to the contrary, these women still exist today — and they vote. Isn’t the assumption that the #WomenVote hashtag would be exclusively a celebration of the Democratic Party platform a denial of a woman’s right to choose?

Conservative women not only vote; they’re also experts at hijacking hashtags.

We love history. In 1872, for example, Susan B. Anthony was arrested after she “positively voted the Republican ticket — straight.”

    I vote Conservative because I think with BOTH my head and heart.

    • shimauma

      I vote conservative because I teach my daughters to vote with their brains and shoot like Annie Oakley

  • peteee363

    the only thing hotter then a conservative woman voting, is being able to vote for a conservative woman candidate!

  • trixiewoobeans

    I vote Conservative because I was fed up being used, lied to and patronized by the Democratic Party.

    I vote Conservative because I recognized the Democratic Party was killing the American family.

    • brando

      They already killed it

  • ObamaFail

    Typical liberal gutter trash. They can’t praise their policies because obviously their policies are killing this country. So they want to stoop to the pathetic accusation that Conservative don’t want women to have equal voting rights.
    Give me a break. Anyone who is dumb enough to fall for Democrat BS really needs to get psychological help.

    And let’s be honest liberals, the only rights you morons actually fight for in regards to women is unrestricted abortions. You don’t care about anything other than that. Oh, and also forcing us to fund their birth control.

    I heard the phrase, “gave women the right to vote” on the radio today in regards to the 19th Amendment and had a question come up that I’d never considered before. Is voting our “right?” If so, how does the Constitution do that? Our rights are supposed to be unalienable. But voting can and is taken away from people all the time.

    Would it not be more correct to say that the amendment allowed women to vote?

    • therealguyfaux

      All right, to be pedantic about it, the 19th Amendment basically purports to say that whatever else you might prevent a female from voting on account of (underage, non-citizen, convicted felon), you can’t prevent her from voting simply in virtue of her being a female — as many states had been doing before passage.

        I had to look up pedantic. I understand your point, but whether rights are ours merely by being alive is quite different than because a government “gives” them to us. No?

        Not trying to be argumentative, just wondering because I’ve always heard that phrase “given the right to vote” and it never occurred to me that is the same as saying the government, not our Creator, grants us rights.

        • carla5731

          You’re describing the difference between natural and legal rights. Natural rights are supposed to be basic universal ideas that apply no matter where someone lives; legal rights, on the other hand, are products of the society that creates them.

          The two are intertwined. Government is a set of rules created by humans and if there isn’t a government then you don’t need the right to vote. However, human beings naturally tend to organize themselves into formal and informal governing bodies and without recognizing voting as a legal right, other people would have too much control over how you choose to live your life, and that would infringe upon your natural rights.

            Thanks. One more question. Yes, I know I could probably look it up but answers from people make more sense to me than academic text.

            Is a legal right the same as a civil right? I first started hearing the term Civil rights in conjunction with voting for blacks. It has ballooned into an entire industry now, but was that the original intent of the term?

            Just another Liberal scam:


          • carla5731

            I’m not a lawyer but I would but I would put civil rights in the same category as legal rights. They both stem from systems that are created by groups of people to manage society and are dependent upon the existence of government to give them value.

          Voting is a legal right, not a natural right like freedom and liberty.

  • arttie

    Montana’s Jeannette Rankin 1st woman elected to Congress in 1916 and again in 1940 and has the distinction of voting against entry into WW1 and WW2. As a Republican I might add.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      If she’d have gotten her way on the first war, there probably would not have been a second.

      • arttie

        She harkens back to Washington’s admonition against foreign entanglements and had a strong pacifist philosophy.

          Of course the problem is that the Japanese had other ideas regarding our lack of involvement and decided to forcibly invite us in.

      Dont forget the 1st woman on the Supreme Court — Sandra Day O’Connor — appointed by Ronaldus Magnus, a *gasp* Republican white male….

    I vote Conservative because I’d much rather be represented by Sarah Palin than Hillary Clinton.

    • https://twitter.com/WSPISFA WSPISFA

      that needs to be tweeted and RTed repeatedly on the hashtag

  • descolada9

    Sometimes the best messages really do come in 140 characters or less.

    • https://twitter.com/WSPISFA WSPISFA

      That’s how every single bill in D.C. should be presented: if you cant make a valid case for it in 140 characters or less, the govt, er taxpayers should never fund it.

  • Maxx

    Not much out there more appealing than a good lookin’ conservative woman. Even when they are admired from a distance, a fella can place a safe bet she’s going to be equally as intelligent and independent as she is beautiful.

    You’ll get no such guarantees from her political counterparts, who continue to march for the right to kill the unborn, advocate for b/c pills to be made available for 11-year-olds without parental consent or knowledge, and demand contraception to be paid for by taxpayers, etc.

  • Mr_Wrestling_XIII

    The hottest girls are Conservatarian. They have all the best features of both!

  • CombatDiver

    Bravo Ladies, Bravo….. My wife and daughters are beautiful, intelligent, respectful and my wife votes using what is between her ears, not what is between her legs. Conservative women are the biggest and best defense against the left’s war on women.

    Keep up the good fight ladies, you are what all young women should strive to be.

  • journogal

    I vote Conservative because I don’t like to be treated like I am a victim.
    I vote Conservative because I want my girls to have the same opportunities I had growing up.
    I vote Conservative because I believe in how this country was founded: for liberty and freedom.
    I vote Conservative because I love my country and don’t want to transform it into something unrecognizable.
    I vote Conservative because I believe in taking responsibility for your actions, and realizing you are responsible for yourself. Not the government, not the taxpayers.

    Yep, we’re here and we vote, we buy, we read, we visit, we attend etc.. Amazes me sometime how progs forget that conservatives make up half the population. Then they don’t get it when their movies, books, ideas. et al aren’t successful. Duh…you can’t offend half of the folks and expect a positive outcome.

  • https://twitter.com/WSPISFA WSPISFA

    I don’t think I’ve ever been more proud to be a female than I am after reading those tweets; excellent all! Certainly a lot more likable people behind them than the perpetually whiny b*tchy entitlist leftwing hags on the other side for sure. Conservative Babes (& Dudes) rule…

  • BeeKaaay

    Reading this makes me see that American women CAN have brains :)

    Unfortunately, living in Illinois women with brains are scarcer the closer to Chicago…..its leftwingwacko central there.
