The Grass May Not Be Greener

Listen, I get it. You hate this guy……

You have your reasons and I won’t argue with you but hear me out for a second.

Most people have no clue what they’re asking for when you say you want Trump out of office.  I mean, you’re one impeachment away from this guy below taking office.

If you have never checked out the Vice President, you really really should.  Most of my family is in Indianapolis so I’ve been hearing about the former governor of Indiana for a few years and some of it is just plain scary.  What do you mean?   I’m glad you asked…
Here are a few things you might not know.
  • He doesn’t want women to serve in the military.  He basically said they get too emotional in relationships and that in the military doesn’t work.
  • He must’ve been getting money from “Big Tobacco” because he said “smoking doesn’t kill people.
  • He thinks that money that funds HIV/AIDS research should be diverted into Conversion Therapy.  Don’t know what that is?  It’s different techniques, like shock therapy, uses to turn gay people back straight.  Yeah…..
  • He thinks same sex marriage would lead to the collapse of societies.
  • He said he’d be willing to do a government shutdown in order to defund planned parenthood.
  • He signed a bill that let businesses not provide services to gay folks because of religious freedom.
  • And this is my favorite. He said that abortions should only be done in instances of  incest and “forcible rape”.  Regular rape wouldn’t qualify.  The rape had to be “forcible” rape.
Check this out, Trump is Trump.  But this is one of those instances where “be careful what you wish for” applies.  From what I can tell, a lot of Pence’s thought process is wrapped around religion.  Now that may be great for some but it’s completely oppressive for others.  Mainly women and LGBTQ folks.  Look, the best thing about Trump is that he’s not a career politician.  He doesn’t know how to get his policies passed the first time up.   That’s why a lot of his policies are getting shut down left and right.
Think about this, Pence is a career guy.  He knows how to write the policies, the people he needs to run it by first, and the path of least resistance for passage of his bills.  The stuff he’ll introduce will get through before you’ve had time to think about it.  I’m not saying he’s good, bad, or whatever.  I’m just saying, ask yourself, if Trump gets kicked out of office……who takes over?  It may not be what you want.

  1. Wow. I knew some of those things about Pence, but hadn’t heard all of them. Thanks for info. I do think people just want him out of office so bad, they haven’t considered what would happen after that. Thanks for that perspective.

    1. Yep, you’re right. Most people like to act and then think. Switch it around and you get a different course of actions. At least, you should.

  2. I dislike all of those things. I dislike an unstable fanatic with access to nuclear weapons, more. So unless you can impeach both at once… and convince ryan to quit….

    1. I absolutely agree. I just don’t think people are looking past step 1 in the process. The guys who would take over after Trump would arguably be worse for a lot of people and a lot of reasons. There aren’t any good options out there right now unless we go wayyy down the line.
