The VP Debate












    Tomorrow night will be the one and only Vice President Candidates Debate.

I've heard different people say they'll probably not watch, but to me, it's key.  Especially if you're on the fence.


      It is our one time to really focus on these two men, and considering there is a thought that if  Trump is elected, it would be Mike Pence that would be making many of the decisions, while Trump makes America great again; American voters should pay close attention.
     Many see Pence as the true conservative; as one that was brought in to appease the GOP establishment.
     For me, he holds possibly the same potential that Sarah Palin did in 2008.  Allow me an attempt to articulate.

    In 2008, Senator Barack Obama, and then Senator Hillary Clinton, engaged in a close and robust primary.  Those that voted for Senator Clinton, were passionate, and incredibly disappointed with the result of the the primary.  I know, because I was one of those who voted for her in the primary.  Although I liked Senator Obama, I thought he was inexperienced and a tad idealistic to the point of naivety.  Senator John McCain was a respected veteran, with many years of experience in politics.  Although he was a Republican, I could see the appeal.  Also, I had seen his daughter Meghan in a couple of interviews that gave me hope for the future of the Republican party.  Not that, I was not moved to vote for them, but I wasn't exactly gung ho enthused about Senator Obama, and thought that I would be fine, with come what may.
     That changed with Governor Palin being selected as McCain's running mate.  I don't know, what the impetus was for picking Palin, but for me, she scared the daylights out of me.  The notion that such an anti feminist woman could be the first female vice president, not to mention a chance that that could lead to her as the president, to put it politely, WOKE ME UP OUT OF MY DISGRUNTLED HAZE.
   
     So, how does that relate to Pence?
   
     Pay close attention tomorrow night.  For those millennials who are disappointed that Senator Sanders is not our nominee, research Governor Pence's stance on Marriage Equality, Conversion Therapy, Roe vs. Wade, and Planned Parenthood.

If that doesn't scare you, tune in tomorrow and pay close attention to these issues in the days ahead.

Because if you're anything other than Christian, Conservative, and Republican your life will change with a Vice President Pence.
