‼️A Sunday morning Mike Pence thread‼️
Pence's plan to outlast Trump - He was Manafort's pick
He plays the part of unctuous toady so fully that the conservative writer George Will called him "America's most repulsive public figure." But don't be fooled. The vice president is
doggedly pursuing his own ambitions on the side. The Oval Office has been his goal since high school. He has seeded the federal government with his loyalists and is building his own nationwide political organization

Read this it will answer the questions: theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
Mike Pence does not believe in evolution, or a woman's right to choose. He does not believe in science, he does not believe that the LGBTQ community has any rights at all
"Pence's theology says that God selects in advance which individuals will become believers and rewards their
faith regardless of what they do. This belief allows for all sorts of bad behavior

Pence went to college and found God
At the frat he turned in his brothers for drinking beer. At the chapel he passed judgment on his peers. his faith led him to reject some
friends and even regard his fiancée, Karen, as a sinner whom he would have to forgive in order to marry.🙄These habits of mind, later revealed in his hostility to equality for gay people and even climate science, were formed when he was barely an adult.
OK, now this is interesting, didn't know religion can be tied to a political party🙄
"evangelicalism that reserves heaven for a certain type of believer and marries theology to Republican politics.
This is his mentor: votesmart.org/public-stateme…

Pence's problem with science
"Pence made an issue of the pending agreement to settle government lawsuits against tobacco companies for lying for decades about the dangers of their addictive products. Pence didn't just oppose the deal. He insisted it was
based on a lie and the result of a pernicious government plot.
"Despite the hysteria from the political class and the media," Pence wrote in 2000, "smoking doesn't kill. In fact, 2 out of every three smokers does not die from a smoking related illness and 9 out of ten smokers do
not contract lung cancer." Why would a candidate for Congress speak so falsely and recklessly? Pence's motivation may have been connected to his family's ownership stake in a chain of convenience stores called Tobacco Road, which sold cigarettes alongside soft drinks and chips. "
🚨Pence declared "global warming is a myth" and alleged, against the evidence, that Earth "is actually cooler today than it was about 50 years ago."
😱Pence attacked the science of evolution, which, in his telling, was conjecture and thus no worthier of respect than other notions
about the origins of life. Darwin "hoped that some day it would be proven by the fossil record but did not live to see that," declared Pence, "nor have we."😱

Another example was his proposal to use federal funds to turn gay people straight.
With not a single piece of successful
legislation credited to him as author, Pence was more activist than lawmaker. "
😡I'm sorry, but we need a lawmaker in that seat, not an activist.
Pence was unremarkable as governor, save for his commitment to the causes of Christian conservatives in pushing a state law that
permitted discrimination against gay customers by businesses. Trump's lack of political experience opened the door for Pence to suggest many of his friends and allies for top federal jobs including Betsy DeVos and Sonny Perdue www1.cbn.com/beltwaybuzz/ar…
Six months into the new administration, Republicans were already talking about how Pence seemed to be running a shadow campaign to become the GOP nominee for president in the event that Trump was felled by either the Russia scandal or some other force.
highline.huffingtonpost.com/articles/en/ni…
"he would likely remake the GOP, now almost a cult devoted to Donald Trump, as a Christian right political party where people of other faiths would struggle to find a home. Instead of policy driven by personality, a Pence administration would likely pursue policy guided by a
particular reading of the Bible. And the divisions that now seem to be separating Americans would become broader, deeper, and even more difficult to bridge.
