The Nineteenth Amendment

Our principal objection to the Nineteenth Amendment is that it made voters out of millions of women who did not desire to vote, and if they had their way about it would vote to repeal it right now.  It is contrary to the belief of a major portion of the women of the South that they should have a hand in politics.  It increases the burden and expense of holding elections, and nothing is gained by it.

Sure we know these amendments [they didn't like the 18th - prohibition - either] are the law of the land and we have got to abide by them until they are repealed, but that is no reason why we have to declare that we like them when we do not.
