I don't think so..I try, it always fails. Ditto for turning any thread into a debate on Christianity or into any opportunity to knock it or make generalizations about it. It's gotten so tiring and it's turning people off/driving them away. I'm starting to believe that some people here are addicted to negativity and/or to beating the same dead horse for all eternity and jumping on their personal soapbox all the time regardless of how inappropriate it may be sorry, I just had to get that out..

Anyway, I found this on Google

In the United Arab Emirates, where the Parliament is officially appointed, neither men nor women have the right to vote or to stand for election. In Saudi Arabia, men took part, in 2005, in the first local elections ever held in the country. Women however were not allowed to exercise their right to vote or to stand for election on that occasion.
* Right subject to conditions or restrictions
** Restrictions or conditions lifted

1. Reference to several dates reflects the stages in the granting of rights. It is not uncommon, in countries previously under colonial rule, for women to have been granted the rights to vote and be elected by the colonial administration and to have had them confirmed at the time of accession to independence. Similarly, it is not uncommon, in countries that were formerly part of a federation and in which women were entitled to vote and be elected under the federal legislation, for women to have had these rights confirmed under the Constitution of the newly independent State.
2. In November 1955, Eritrea was part of Ethiopia. The Constitution of sovereign Eritrea adopted on 23 May 1997 stipulates that "All Eritrean citizens, of eighteen years of age or more, shall have the right to vote."

They also don't have the basic necessities of life anymore, but at least they're free. Good logic there.

BTW, my post is actually VERY relevant.

I'm always amazed when I'm reminded Switzerland didn't allow women to vote until 1971.

Even if you were right, and people no longer have basic neccesities in order to live, that in no way detracts from the fact that women now have the right to vote in Iraq.

Ok Springsteen....I'll shut up now! Sorry for derailing your thread!

Oh, you're referring to the election where people were led to believe they were voting for the Iraqi leader, but actually weren't? The one where people had no idea what they were voting for? Yes, I am familiar with that one.
