They also didn't want non-landowners to vote, as we see what happens when sheniqua and her 7 kids living in a tax payer funded apartment, eating tax payer funded food, and enjoying the benefits of tax payer funded healthcare is allowed to vote. Of course she is going to vote for the candidate promising more free stuff (gas money and car payments). Since she has no "skin in the game"(aka property) to lose due to the failures of elected politicians destroying the economy.

Yeah that's some pretty sexist and ignorant bullshit. Women were regarded as property and felt that they didn't have the capacity to reason. In short they were better slaves.
Regarding why they didn't want non property owners to vote it was protecting their self interests combined with the belief that they just weren't smart enough to govern themselves.
