    Much like Dick Cheney acting as Dubya's de facto president because Dubya didn't have the interest, we can likewise now expect Mike Pence to lead the president on all things that matter to Pence. Like, for example,

    Mike Pence Advocates For Government Funded Conversion Therapy

    Mike Pence: Condoms Are Too Modern

    "And the truth is that Colin Powell had an opportunity here to reaffirm this president’s commitment to abstinence as the best choice for our young people, and he chose not to do that in the first instance, but — and so I think it’s very sad. The other part is that, frankly, condoms are a very, very poor protection against sexually transmitted diseases, and in that sense, Wolf, this was — the secretary of state may be inadvertently misleading millions of young people and endangering lives."

    Roe vs. Wade will be overturned if Donald Trump wins, Mike Pence says

    “I’m pro-life and I don’t apologize for it,” he said during a town hall meeting here. “We’ll see Roe vs. Wade consigned to the ash heap of history where it belongs.”

    Okay that's just the start...

    Be afraid my friends! Mike Pence is the real danger of the Trump administration. Trump is like a deer in the headlights. He never planned to win this election and now that the reality he has has set in he will do everything he can to keep an image of himself as a strong, beloved benefactor to the USA while delegating everything to the ass kissers that are swarming around him today looking for a piece of the pie.

    Pence represents the worst this country has to offer its citizens with Ryan and McConnell following right behind.

    The Republican Party as constituted represents a grave threat to this country. More importantly the almost 50% of voters that selected the Republican Party represent a hugely grave threat to this country and more importantly, the world. Look for increased military adventurism in the Middle East as trump who knows more about Isis than anyone puts troops on the ground in Syria. The antiquated system created by 18th century oligarchs who despised democracy has for the second time in my lifetime given us a president that the majority of voters did not support. It was bad enough in that it gave us George W. Bush and thereby daesh. God knows what it will bring us now.

    we have to fight them with every political weapon at our disposal. Starting with filibustering everything.

    Not to beat this horse too much, but this article in Patheos pretty well sums up Mike Pence:

    Mike Pence Promotes Christian Theocracy

    "Trump may be a buffoon, but Pence is a cold, cruel, religious extremist with dreams of a Christian theocracy. Indiana Governor and GOP vice presidential nominee Mike Pence is a conservative Christian nightmare who rejects the separation of church and state, and places his Christian faith above the U.S. Constitution."

    Pence is anti-science, anti-gay, anti-women, anti-abortion, and anti-condoms. Ironically the only person who can really stop him from implementing his religious extremist agenda is Donald Trump himself. In other words, I see Pence as being more dangerous than Trump. In that respect, Trump's daughter Ivanka may persuade Trump to not be so accommodating to Pence and other Republicans.

    We'll see how it evolves.

    Last night Trump was speaking about post Roe v Wade, states can decide and women can go to other states. Typical. Medical treatments should involve travel arrangements, and thus a woman who can't afford a child is paying for gasoline, hotel, meals, etc.. If you're in the South you may get to see several states. I personally am 10% pro abortion but without hesitation 110% pro choice. These idiots are going to ruin our country.

    But yeah, his "boss" is allowed to "grope" women all over the place. Yes this Pence guy is an total Jesus "freak" ; belongs in the "middle ages" so will burn the "witches" again; evolution is an "curse" so let's introduce "steam" trains again then we can also use the "coal" which Trump wants back. Shaking my old non-Christian Atheist head.

    Yes T.J. These idiots are already busy to ruin our country including adding unwanted/deformed children who are never "loved" then are beaten to death or need medical help forever or may enlist in the army as cannon fodder. Jesus will love that for sure.
