Thread: Anyone care to see female leaders in the States

    Question Anyone care to see female leaders in the States

    Hi,

    This is an open question about women in politics, would anyone here care much about seeing more governors? And the subject of a female head of state, and no not Mrs Clinton. But having read a few articles of course they focus mainly smaller states, with less powerful heads of state having been elected, and parliamentary democracy with female heads of government, I thought I'd post here, see what users here think.

    Anybody really care much? If some silly men can get elected, it is pretty surprising why America is behind on this.

    On the topic of the first female head of state, it is a tough question since, it all depends who could show up.

    Yeah, I have decided that if I ever run for office and win, I will have a receptionist who is not afraid to escort politicians and lobbyists out of the office. I will not be afraid to say, "Rep Pelosi, the people of the 5th district did not send me here to do anything like what you suggest. Let me show you out."

    I can tell you this: If some fat, frugal grandma ever runs for office, you need to vote for her. Frugal women get it done, on time, and in budget.

    I am tired of leaders in the United States.
    But I am more disappointed in the Followers.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    No, we should not have women in office. Take a screenshot and send it to HuffPo: Women were meddlesome enough as wives of statesmen, before being given the reins personally.

    Parliaments don't work with two parties.

    Mary Fallin is neither the best nor the worst governor Oklahoma has ever had.

    What a load of horse$#@!. Dismissing logic and reason is something only a fool would do. But you would make great cannon fodder for someone who used them.

    I didn't dismiss logic and reason, I dismissed those who claim it is the only source of wisdom.

    I give logic and reason preeminence but not monopoly.

    -Ludwig von Mises

    "Patriotism, not nationalism, should inspire the citizen. The ethnic nationalist who wants a linguistically and culturally uniform nation is akin to the racist who is intolerant toward those who look (and behave) differently. The patriot is a "diversitarian"; he is pleased, indeed proud of the variety within the borders of his country; he looks for loyalty from all citizens. And he looks up and down, not left and right."

    -Erik Maria Ritter von Kuehnelt-Leddihn

    "The monarch is a responsible person. The fact that a monarch is responsible "to God alone," rather than to an assembly or a popular majority, is rather shocking to an agnostic mind; but while God cannot be fooled, the masses can. While it is perhaps true that "one cannot fool all the people all the time," it seems one can fool millions for centuries."

    -Ibid.

    No need, the White House already has plenty of staff to do the cooking and cleaning.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    I don't know why they call them leaders. They are just folks who don't have any other abilitys, so they run for office.

    A friend of mine told me that if women led all the countries, that there would never be any wars. As support for Hillary Clinton nonetheless. After laughing at how silly that was though, I do think that it brings up an interesting train of thought.

    How do we ever end up with a Commander in Chief who doesn't want to use their power to promote war? The answer is pretty clearly not in gender (those women who rise to the top seem to love war just as much as the men), but also in the followers who vote for these people and ultimately have the power to control who rises to the top with their votes. Until people realize that a "strong leader" is not the solution, there is still a great problem. Look at all the people here (on Ron Paul Forums of all places) who supported the obvious authoritarian Trump who sold himself as a "strong leader". There may have not been any major candidates who valued liberty less on a fundamental level.
    Authoritarianism and neoconservatism cannot be made great again.
    Trump was an enemy of Ron Paul, before he was an enemy of Rand Paul, before he was an enemy of the Freedom Caucus.
    One thing that he has remained consistent in is his hate of liberty and those who promote it.

    We DO need a "Strong Leader", one who is strong enough to stand up to the MIC, Dump was not that leader as his vows to fight ISIS made quite clear.

    Ron Paul would have stood up to the MIC and did stand up to the MIC. He is strong but has no desire to "lead".

    Unfortunately the sheeple demand a "Leader", I wanted Dr. Paul but I have learned that we need a leader type personality with the principles of Dr. Ron.
