Fox Hollow, FL – Okay guys, this is my first ever article as a writer for Whiskey Tango Fett, so please take it easy on me. With all of the attention being focused on the tragic events that have transpired overseas in Germany, and rightfully so, I don’t feel like we really got enough of a breather to get to know Trump’s running mate Mike Pence. So with my first article I’m going to school you on the dude from Indiana.
Now before I get into the meat of this article, let me introduce myself. My name is Veronica James and by nature I’m a romance author, and as such I like to write about passionate topics… only this time I’m writing about my passion for America and our need to save it from the clutches of the wicked witch of Arkansas, Hillary Clinton.
Seriously if “We the People” don’t take a stand to defeat Hillary we are done, toast, and finished… Hillary will take us places that Obama has only dreamed about.
In short, if Hillary wins America ends, freedom dies, and liberty is kaput.
Now is Trump the answer? Can he save us from the mess we find ourselves in today after 16 years of socialist tyranny and inept leadership? In short, I believe that he can and I look forward to making my case over the next few months through Whiskey Tango Fett.
As with any in-depth analysis lets start with the basics, and it doesn’t get anymore basic than the guy who will be backing up Trump once he is elected. So without further ado and bloviating lets get to know Mike Pence.
Upon first glance, Gov. Mike Pence might seem to some as an uncharismatic, unsure, and as some have called him “out of sync” choice for Trump to choose as his VP. However, once you begin to look at who he is and what he stands for, your perception of him and his beliefs change in the blink of an eye. He is the one VP who is actually “In Sync” with what real Americans believe.
How does this unknown man suddenly become a media spectator’s sport? Where has he been hiding all this time? The sarcastic me wants to think that we’ve not heard of this man because his beliefs actually are exactly what us red-blooded-America-loving people want to hear. So what, exactly, does Gov. Pence believe in? Does he believe in our country, our freedom, our right to bear arms, human lives? And who is he, really? Let’s take a look at some of the most important qualities that help us to give both him and Trump our vote.
A man after my own heart, having grown up in the state he now governs, is known to have fond memories of simpler times. A time where simply playing in a creek in his hometown brought such pleasure to him as a child (NYTimes). His first run at office in the 80s meant he had to ride his bicycle over 200 miles to meet his voters. (NYTimes). Talk about commitment and dedication! And even though he lost, he did not give up. This is the foundation from which our future VP has come from.
Fast forward to 2015 where opposition to Indiana’s ‘religious freedom’ law meant he would have to work at helping those who align with his beliefs now understand that he will not waiver in their trust. The LGBT community would understandably find fault with that law, but Pence’s ideology is to dissuade the promotion of activities that encourage the spread of HIV and AIDs. Makes sense to me since homosexual males are THE number one way to contract the disease (drugabuse.com). Along with this controversial law are other items on his ‘agenda’ such as ending the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy (businessinsider).
His view on abortions? He signed a bill in 2015 opposing abortions for women who wanted them solely based upon the sex of their baby or if the baby was found to have Down Syndrome (indystar.com). Too bad that failed – women who murder babies should be sterilized. Of course, I appreciate Pence’s stance on the issue when he states that, “A society can be judged by how it deals with its most vulnerable — the aged, the infirm, the disabled and the unborn.” (NYTimes) Like I said, a man after my own heart.
Let’s talk about gun control. Is Pence in fear of the AR or is he a card carrying NRA gun lover? You think Trump would pick a wussy boy? Heck no! Pence is the real deal. He is an NRA member, has spoken repeatedly for the NRA, and has “towed the party line on gun reform measures…” (guns.com). In fact, he is more pro-guns than Ol’ Trump, who was criticized for having included that he was for an assaults weapons ban in his book published from 2000, ‘The America We Deserve” (guns.com).
Now I know I have not covered every single bill, law, or agenda he has discussed or lamented upon, but how can you argue with a guy who has NOT changed his views since he was in his youth! How many other politicians can you find with a similar background who have maintained their faith and ideology, especially in an environment that can become so politically heated and money driven. After a little bit of research (I’m sure there is more to come), I have concluded that Trump made a wise decision in picking a non-establishment VP.
Pence is a solid conservative and will be a great VP!
