    To to be honest there is nothing new about it. The religious right has been pulling this kind of shit for a long time. They go to church on Sunday and any other day of the week they do the exact opposite of the values they claim to believe in. I am a christian myself but yes that is insanity and why I will never vote republican.

    This is why (not practicing what they preach) I've taken up Buddhism.

    I'm not fooled by politeness. Just because Mike Pence doesn't openly insult people he disagrees with and act like a child doesn't mean he's any better than Trump.
    He would be slightly less divisive, and more anti-lgbt than Trump.

    Pence is the snake and trump is the boar. Trump is more likley to go after something head on and in that case more likly to me blocked. Pence is more likely to sneak past, more likly to put on a facade. I think that if someone tryes to block him then mutch like a snake he would slither through it. Like a decaing wall. Frankly, i would beg my parents to move out of the country if Pence became president. Impeach Pence then impeach Trump.

    Pence seems far, far worse than Trump.

    Trump is a moron. He does stupid things, but he's doing it in plain sight. He's likely to be stopped. He's likely to cause scandals (he already has, lol). His own team thinks he's a moron.

    Pence is more akin to your usual politician. He works behind the scene. You don't really what he's thinking. But, he openly expressed horrible, horrible views (his anti-LGBT stance, for example). And he's not afraid to express that. Imagine what he might be thinking that he feels is ''too risky'' to say? Like, even Trump said that Pence ''would like to hang them all'' (LGBT people). Now, you can say he was joking, but there's always some truth behind every joke. It's only a slight exaggeration.

    Anyway, hopefully, you guys in the US can get out of this without too much damage.

    Pence doesn't act like a two-year-old. I don't think we'd have another government shutdown if Pence were president. And just because Pence has been more openly homophobic than Trump doesn't make Trump any better than what he is: a racist, sexist man-baby suffering from malignant narcissism.

    But Pence will get things done, because trump acts like a two year old makes him just as incompetent. We might get worse than a government shut down with Pence. Lets just not trust our president!
