Excellent point.

All of her other points are just as stupid as the one about "widening gap
between rich and poor".  John Lott proved once and for all that it's women
voters like her who can't possibly understand the first thing about
economics who caused government spending to skyrocket from 2% to 42% of each
wage dollar in the first place.  The quickest way to fix all the ills of
society she refers to (and she's missing 95% of the most important ones) is
to repeal the 19th Amendment
