Mike Pence LIED numerous times at the VP Debate. This proves he can’t be trusted and is unfit to serve in Public Office
Pence anti-gay extremism often overlooked on national stage
Rachel Maddow shows that even though he didn’t get much scrutiny during the campaign, Vice president-elect Mike Pence is one of America’s most extreme anti-gay elected officials
In my opinion, Mike Pence Sucks for signing and condoning a law legalizing discrimination against gays / LGBT, Attacking Social Security & Medicare and other right wing policies.
To be clear, under the law Mike Pence signed, a business could refuse service to anyone who they THINK looks gay on the basis of being against the business owner’s religion.
Imagine being denied service because someone thinks you LOOK gay and legally being denied recourse against the person / business which did you wrong. That’s the type of country we will live in if Republicans get their way…. a country were discrimination is legal and no recourse against businesses and individuals who engage in discrimination.
Trump has proved he has no concerns about democracy and people being discriminated against. Otherwise, he would not have chosen a repressive idiot as his running mate.
When I look at Mike Pence I think “Horse & Buggies” because he belongs in the 1800’s. His values are regressive, oppressive and from a bygone era.
There’s NO WAY most Americans would vote for Pence who is for the TPP, against Unions, against raising the minimum wage, anti-women’s choice, cutting social security & medicare and signed a law legalizing discrimination against gays.
If Pence had run in the primary, he would have lost. In fact, he would have probably been relegated to the “kids table” debates and not been allowed on the main stage.
Trump promised he would “Hire the Best People”. He’s already proved that statement is a lie by choosing Pence as his VP and Steve Bannon from Breitbart, who is loved by the KKK & the American Nazi Party as his Chief of Staff.

FACTS ABOUT MIKE PENCE
Mike Pence is Anti-Women’s Rights / Anti-Choice
Pence has instituted some of the most restrictive reproductive rights laws in the country.
Mike Pence has a Long History Attacking Social Security & Medicare
Here’s a quote from National Committee to Preserve Social Security & Medicare, President/CEO Max Richtman, about Trump picking Pence as his VP…
“By choosing Governor Mike Pence as his running mate, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump has sent a very clear message to America’s seniors that their priorities will hold little weight in a Trump administration. During his decade-plus tenure in the U.S. Congress, Mike Pence consistently voted in favor of legislative efforts to cut benefits in Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. He has a long history of blaming earned benefit programs for America’s economic woes and supporting middle-class benefit cuts to protect tax cuts for the wealthy. Few members of Congress have an anti-seniors voting record as consistently strong as Mike Pence.
Mike Pence was one of Congress’ biggest proponents of privatization. He supports cutting Social Security benefits by raising the retirement age, reducing the COLA, means-testing and turning Medicare into “CouponCare.” As he told CNN, ‘I’m an all of the above guy. I think we need to look at everything that’s on the menu,’ and the record shows he has done just that by supporting every form of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid benefit cut proposed in the past decade.
The National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare scored Mike Pence at 0% on issues important to seniors during the 2011-2012 Congress since he voted for multiple pieces of legislation that would cut benefits and programs that protect senior’s health and financial security.”

FALSE STATEMENTS MADE BY PENCE
Here’s a list of False Statements made by Mike Pence which include the statement “Hillary Clinton took 13 hours to send help to Americans under fire during the terrorist attack in Benghazi”, which is a LIE – http://politifact.com/personalities/mike-pence/statements/byruling/false/
Trump and Republicans has made a BIG DEAL out of Benghazi in which 4 Americans died.
What Republicans and the news media fails to mention is that 60 Americans died under the watch of “Worst President Ever”, George W. Bush. There were no endless investigation by Republicans into those deaths because a Republican, (George W. Bush) was President at the time.
It is clear, the numerous Benghazi investigations by Repubs (which cost taxpayers over 4 million dollars) has been motivated by Politics, HATE for President Obama and to “Get” Hillary Clinton. The same is true about Hillary Clinton’s emails.
Trump is constantly calling Hillary Clinton “Crooked Hillary“. Trump is in no position to criticize anyone. It has been reported that Trump has screwed his own contractors out of money they were owned, lawsuits has been filed against him in connection with the now defunct Trump University and much more.
If anyone is “crooked”, it’s Donald Trump.
Republican politicians are in no position to criticize Hillary Clinton either.
As an example of how LAWLESS Republicans are, Republican Governor of Florida, Jeb Bush and his administration subverted democracy by rigging the 2000 election by illegally and wrongfully purging thousands of black voters off the voter rolls. This gave his brother, George W. Bush a winning lead of only 537 votes.
If it weren’t for Jeb Bush’s illegal voter purge, Al Gore would have decisively won Florida and the 2000 election.
No charges were ever brought against Jeb and his administration even though the Civil Rights Commission recommended that he and members of his administration be prosecuted – http://www.usccr.gov/pubs/vote2000/report/ch9.htm
That rigged election ended up costing the lives of thousands of people because of George W. Bush’s disastrous Iraq war, which wouldn’t have happened if Al Gore were President. It also caused a conservative majority in the Supreme Court due to Bush’s appointments. Full details at http://republicanssucks.org/2000-election-was-stolen/
The 2004 election was rigged by Republicans in Ohio through a combination of the Ohio Election Computers being rerouted to computers in Tennessee and the votes flipped, ballot destruction and disenfranchisement of minorities. Extensive investigations produced shocking proof yet no charges were ever brought against anyone involved. Full details at http://republicanssucks.org/2004-election-rigged/
Republicans even RIGGED their own convention in 2012 as show in this video.
This shocking video shows how the Republican establishment didn’t listen to members of their own party at the 2012 Republican Convention and didn’t allow them to vote on an important rule change. The rule change was already decided by the Republican establishment and written into a teleprompter script read by Speaker of the House, John Boehner.
These are only a few examples of how Republicans have no regard for Democracy or the will of the American people. To them, the end justifies the means as it did when they rigged the 2000 election and 2004 election for George W Bush
Republicans have shown that they condone out right lying, character assassinations, cheating, lawless, UN-American, undemocratic conduct as long as it benefits them so they stay in power.
Today’s Republicans are a DISGRACE and have defiled the GOP Party of Lincoln. Until they change, they ALL need to be voted out of office.

GOP Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, has chosen one of Congress’ most aggressive Social Security privatization supporters to serve as his Vice President.
He has quite a record.
In choosing Mike Pence as his running mate, Donald Trump has shored up the GOP’s religious base. But based on the Indiana governor’s disastrous run-in with pro-business Republicans and moderates last year over gay rights, Trump may have just lost the election. On the face of it, the Pence pick makes all the sense in the world.
