Hank Hill Election of 1816 Cameron Craig

Hank : Hello. I’m Hank Hill. I’m a new comer to this whole politics thing but hey, I figured I’d give it a shot. I represent the Federalist Party in the upcoming election of 1816. The main topic I would like to discuss is women’s participation in political parties.. The Constitution of these United States of America uses the word persons, not just male citizens (38). You know what that means? That means that any woman of the female gender should have the same rights as any man in this country. That means women should have the right to vote, run for any type of office they please, and the right to own property. That means they should be able to VOTE! Don’t you agree Boomhauer?

Boomhauer: Yeah, I agree with you Hank.

Hank: Secondly, the Democratic-Republics are only focused on a certain people. They only focus on white males and free black males, but that’s only in a few states (151).  Something else they seem to do is look at people in levels, similar to who’s higher and lower in society. White men are ranked the highest, or leveled up because women, children, blacks, and Indians were leveled down (161). It’s also unfair that women who have fought for these rights in the past did not get the respect they deserved and worked for. A few of these women would be Abigail Adams, Mary Wollstonecraft, Mercy Otis Warren, and Judith Sargent Murray (40, 59). My wife Peggy truly admires all these women, as I do as well. What do you think Boomhauer?

Boomhauer: Yeah, I agree like I said. These women are great ladies.

Hank: It also bothers me that women who can read and write cannot vote. You know what that means? It means some of the women are smarter than some of the males around here. It’s time to make a difference everyone. Vote for me, Hank Hill.
