I'm wouldn't be so sure to chaulk it up to just Mike Pence, though I expect he helped to better acquaint Trump.DBowling wrote: ↑Thu May 09, 2019 8:46 pmI think we can thank Mike Pence for many of the 'results' that you point out in your post.Kurieuo wrote: ↑Thu May 09, 2019 7:06 pmWhat does it mean to be pro-life DB?
On a scale of (lowest) 1-10 (highest) of social issues out there, how highly does this issue rank for you? For me, knowing that innocent baby lives are being massacred, it is an easy 10. More than any other issue, it defines how I vote and a great many other people.
For me, being "pro-life" (or more correctly put, against the wholesale massacre of innocent human life especially infants who have no say in their own demise), I couldn't care less about some "conviction" if such doesn't bring about positive change and results.
And I have acknowledged many times that I think choosing Mike Pence as Vice President was a great decision by Trump.
So if Mike Pence is able to get some pro-life policies instituted by the Trump administration, does that mean that we overlook Trump's dishonest, immoral, lawless, and corrupt behavior.
Do we just turn a blind eye when the President of the United States violates the laws he's sworn to uphold and then uses the power of his office to interfere with law enforcement?
Is the President of the United beyond the reach of the law?
Trump has taken some actions that I fully support... as well as some that I oppose.
But just because Trump has taken some actions that I support, that does not mean I can support a lawless corrupt President who believes that he is above the law.
If the Republicans choose Mike Pence (who is truly pro-life) as their candidate in 2020 I will vote for him without hesitation.
Here I thought being dishonest, immoral, lawless (internationally so) and more or less corrupt was like a pre-requisite for POTUS -- judging from previous presidencies. And, aren't all POTUS' to some degree above the law, congress, vetoing power, etc.
It seems you dwell only on the negatives, like you and Ed are polar extreme to Abe. I wouldn't mind hearing some more balance. Noone is entirely evil, unless they're the devil. To many Trump is the devil, but that's not right. There's good, and there's bad. Even Hillary, she ain't all bad.
Mike Pence, clearly a better man. BUT, then, I'm not sure he'd fair well in the limelight as a front man. He doesn't seem to have the right nature for a POTUS. As such, I'm not sure how effective he'd be.
