    I heard someone say 1920 was the collapse of American society due to women voters.
    He had a good argument and it wasn't because of the way women vote.

    Because politicians needed to come up with policies to get the female vote in election years they started creating policies that would attract feminine interest. Not necessarily policies good for the country.

    The Development of
    Child protection laws "As they are written"
    Child labor laws
    A Number of Criminal Laws " Assault, Ect"
    I can't remember what else but i just curious and want some others opinion
    "This is not Necessarily my view point and i can't blame just one thing on our countries social dis function"

    I would attribute our current predicament to the abandonment of principle. There is no fooling with cause and effect, only ourselves.

    The cause of the deterioration of American society was not sufferage but the love of money!

    Right time period. Wrong Amendment.

    The amendment that's caused the most problems is the 17th amendment.

    No. It didn't cause any problems. In fact, it helped things quieten down quite a bit in America.

    I know right, directly electing your public officials is plain stupid...

    I'll say that at times the institution that is the Senate and the way its structured is a problem.
