Where were women on Election Day?

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OPINION -

Dear Ed­i­tor: On Election Night, a woman — I for­get who — said on TV, “Where are the women? We could be elect­ing a woman pres­i­dent right now.”

Go­ing through my head is that old Harry Be­la­fonte tune, “That’s right, the women are smarter.”

Our gov­ern­ment has needed an en­ema for a long time. Amer­ica is ruled by money, fu­eled by greed, en­abled by cor­rup­tion, scripted by bi­ased and cheer­lead­ing me­dia, and ma­nip­u­lated by politi­cians whose pri­or­ity is per­sonal power. Their col­lec­tive dis­dain for the ma­jor­ity has been clearly shown by their shame­ful dis­re­spect for the of­fice of the pres­i­dency and the man we elected to it.

Fact is, we’ve long since ceased to be a democ­racy.

Well, it’s looks like we’re about to get that en­ema.

I’m think­ing that the ladies took care of busi­ness Tues­day. Smarter? Could be. So bend over, Amer­ica.

And try to get that tune out of your head.

Bet you can’t. Pete Levin Sauger­ties
