    Mike Pence: Radical Christian Extremist
    Mike Pence, Trump’s VP pick, is an anti-science, anti-women, anti-LGBT, religious extremist.
    Dangerous Religious Extremist
    Earlier today presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump named Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate. Pence is Sarah Palin without the charisma, a conservative Christian nightmare who rejects the separation of church and state, and places his Christian faith above the U.S. Constitution.
    Pence is fond of saying he is “a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican, in that order,” and has repeated the self-description often. He is a dangerous religious extremist who dreams of a Christian theocracy.
    Anti-LGBT
    Pence is a rabid homophobe who wants to deny civil civil rights for LGBT people. Last year, as Governor of Indiana, Pence signed a draconian religious freedom bill into law that actively promoted discrimination against LGBT people.
    Indeed, Time reports Pence has a long history of demeaning gays and promoting discrimination against the LGBT community. In the past, Pence has claimed that gay couples signal “societal collapse;” opposed a law that would prohibit discrimination against LGBT people in the workplace; opposed the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell; and, more recently, he rejected the Obama administration directive on transgender bathrooms.
    Yet Pence’s faith based hatred for the LGBT community is only the beginning of his deranged agenda.
    Anti-Women
    Pence is anti-women. Pence supports so-called personhood bills that would criminalize abortion nationwide. In addition, Right Wing Watch reports Pence has spearheaded congressional efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, even if it meant shutting down the government; signed anti-abortion measures into law in Indiana; and rallied opposition to President Obama’s effort to roll back prohibitions on stem-cell research.
    Anti-Science
    Pence is anti-science, and refuses to accept evolution or climate change.
    Pence is a climate science denier. Media Matters reports:
    On the February 21, 2014, edition of MSNBC’s The Daily Rundown, host Chuck Todd asked Pence if he is “convinced that climate change is man-made.” Pence responded: “I don’t know that that is a resolved issue in science today.” Moments later, Pence added: “Just a few years ago, we were talking about global warming. We haven’t seen a lot of warming lately. I remember back in the ‘70s we were talking about the coming ice age.” Pence similarly stated on the May 5, 2009, edition of MSNBC’s Hardball that “I think the science is very mixed on the subject of global warming,” as ThinkProgress noted. However, according to NASA: “Multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals show that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree: Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities.”
    Pence also refuses to accept evolution. Confronted by Hardball host Chris Matthews in 2009 on evolution, Pence obfuscated on the issue, made appeals to God, and ultimately refused to acknowledge the scientific truth of evolution:

    I'm not clear about this. I thought Kennedy (and I followed the news back then) was referring to Communism. What is the point in the context here? It was President Eisenhower from the previous Administration who warned about the military-industrial complex.

    Unlike Trump, Mike Pence thinks a lot about gay issues.
    That's NOT Good.
    He is a rabid homophobe.
    Pence can't be allowed anywhere near the presidency.

    It would appear the 1950's republican controlled government of the Eisenhower admin, which included anti gay, communist fear monger Joe McCarthy, already had spilled the beans (or lies) by the time JFK and the dems took over. After the Eisenhower exit, who warned America in his last address, I think JFK was just reiterating and expanding what Eisenhower left us with, which at the time, probably knew of the evil conspiracies going on within his own republican party. I also think, JFK was assassinated by those republicans he spoke ill of because he revealed their "mind games" that politicians play on their unsuspecting electorate, namely the voters. Conservatives saw how useful it was to use fear into changing election results, "The swinging pendulum" between the two party system.

    The way I perceive it today, the last four years, or the second Obama term, republicans and their conservative ilk have just been using the same ole tactics they did back then in order to "swing the electoral pendulum" by manipulation. Those manipulation tactics ("order out of chaos") that Eisenhower, JFK warned us about, combined with advances in technology, have created "the party of law and order" seeking its way back into power.

    When we view the pendulum and its direction(s), after the 60's-70's major social changes, along came the horrendous conservative 80's and "compromising" 90's. It would appear to me that in order to swing the electoral pendulum again today, the conservative party has had to use their same ole same ole, but this time their tactics are on steroids with help from the military industrial complex Eisenhower warned us about. Its this "secretive" manipulation tactic that I believe JFK was murdered for, he wasn't suppose to tell how it works. Few Americans picked up on JFK's warning though, part of the tactic was to keep as many people stupid, dumb down and in the dark as possible so that the manipulation could take hold when it came time to swing the pendulum again. What we have seen the last four years is the MAJOR manipulation attempt in progress, come Nov, we will see if the conservative same ole still works or if enough people have "awakened" to the game that has been played on them for the last 50+ years, "manipulation" is what Michael Jackson warned his fans about.

    Not so much the song, but pay attention to this video........

    The Republican mantra never, ever changes! That is why they, as a political party, soon will cease to exist.

    Trump's choice of Governor Mike Pence is a horrendous mistake in my opinion. This man is a rabid narrow minded bible thumping screwball who is only out to push the backward, oppressive agendas of all the flaky fundamentalists. This man has been a horrible embarrassment to Indiana due to his extreme right wing pandering. This is why I might either:
    1. Vote for the Green Party candidate
    2. Hold my nose while voting for Trump/Pence
    3. Say fuck it and stay home on Election Day

    NO! I won't be holding my nose and bending over for Pence to spend at least 4 years disrespecting me and attempting to take away my rights.

    NO! If I can't find a candidate who doesn't hate me, I don't vote. Simple as that.
    But you got it right that South Carolina is as backwards as we get in our crazy country.
