Just found this on Facebook.
Go on, read it. You'll laugh. And maybe cry. But it's a good reminder of how things were less than 100 years ago.

Deb, Don't be too happy. Your vote only doubled or annulled mine, (even though we aren't married to one another.)

I doubled Deb's vote and I annulled Bruce's! Bwa ha ha!
The "logic" in that brochure boggles the mind! The last lines on the right-hand side are kind of hilarious. It's like "f*** it! Voting doesn't make a damn bit of difference anyway." Sadly, I know many people who concur--men and women. If that's how they feel, maybe it's better they don't vote. :-/
