The Femo: On being a female voter

Despite my political writings, I wasn’t sure how to vote in this election. Not being tied to one party or the other, I had no party identification upon which to base a voting decision. Any savvy reader can discern that I’m not a fan of Mitt Romney’s policies for women. But while his social policies are woman- and gay-friendly, President Obama’s unrestrained spending has me worried about the country’s future debt, and his bloody foreign policy is too ruthless. Which is more important: my being a taxpayer or a woman?

Why Mitt Romney’s taxes matter

It is no secret that Mitt Romney is a wealthy man. His net worth is estimated to be somewhere between $190 million and $250 million. He cofounded Bain Capital and was the “sole stockholder, chairman of the board, chief executive officer, and president” of the venture capital firm. Politicians are typically wealthier than most other Americans, but if elected, Romney would be one of the wealthiest presidents in American history. To get an idea of just how wealthy Romney is, combine the wealth of the past eight presidents, and then double that. This is the ethos Romney exudes. There is no escaping it and there is no spinning it.
