The Unforeseen Result of the General Election of 2016
Well, as a supporter of the female gender gaining more equal footing with the male gender in our modern society, obviously, the American General Election of 2016 was a great disappointment to me personally. The American people voted in larger numbers for the knuckle-crawling, masculine “tough guy” candidate, then the tough, and tenacious, female candidate.
Not only was it a disappointment, I would classify it as a shock as well. Because all the political polls were indicating that the female candidate, Hillary Clinton, would have a 95% of winning the election just ten days away from election day. But, to my, and everyone else who is in the liberal-orientated world and wanting to see the female gender win, that was not to be the case.
So, what is the bottom line result that we can take away from this general election?
“It’s the economy, stupid.” The sage advice that President Bill Clinton received from his top advisor — drives everything.
The opposition party – you know, the one’s that want the female to be subservient in their homes and be an auxiliary to the male, have sweep all three houses of the American Government — played this card to their advantage. You know they’re the party that controlled the purse string for so long and did not want to build bridges and spend the “tax payer’s money.”
The conservative establishment truly want to recreate the world of the 1960s when jobs were plentiful, the suburbs were booming, and men and women knew their place; as in men on top and women as auxiarllies and subservient to male dominance; it can only happen for a few at the top reaches of the economic ladder.
Little do they understand that more women have been graduating from colleges and universities for the past eight years. They will continue to drift into society and industries and will demand more equal rights; there is a storm approaching in gender relations and those at the top are isolated in their own grandiosity.
But of course, if 2016 General Election is a set-back for the female gender, think of it this way – it is merely a micro-second on The Big Bang Cosmic Clock and if you think of it in this manner, then the set for the advancement of the female reaching equality with the then and then taking the leadership role again, is right around the corner.
