I think it is the way with Presidential picks for Vice President that I have never heard of them before.  Pence is a darling of the Koch brothers so that explains why Trump picked him.  He wants some of that Koch money.  So simple.  I shudder at the way things are going but I think there is a big movement afoot to see Trump fail and then have this fellow in the head position so the Koch brothers can get the control they want of this country.

               It just might work because the whole system has been rigged to get the districts drawn in such a way that Republican areas will always vote that way.  There really is no power in one person's vote anymore.  It depends on where you live which has been carefully calculated all these years to bring us President Trump.  Now a nice convenient accident or scandal will be arranged and zip....President Pence.

               There are so many undercurrents to life and liberty.  So many threats to a good life.  I feel a moment of grey coming on.  What to tell the kids who are so optimistic about the future and havent seen the way it is manipulated for the good of the elite economy?  The Koch brothers will rule in the end.

He'd be an awful president.

Comment by Zanelle on July 15, 2016 at 10:11am

Awful....that is a strong word.  He certainly looks Presidential.  He really really really wants to be President.  He will do what they say....He and his wife both want it bad.   Just a little slip and he will be the head of the country....he was the author of that religious freedom bill in Indiana that said you could discriminate against things if they weren't to your religious liking.   sigh.  No wedding cakes for gay couples I guess.  The future looks bleak.

Trump won't win.

Comment by Zanelle on July 15, 2016 at 11:04am

Oh, dont be so sure, nc.   With the Koch brothers backing he is formidable.

Trump and $Hillary are in a virtual tie on at least a couple of different polls.  You're right Pence will bring in the Koch bros AND a ton of the fundie vote that would go to Johnson otherwise.  

On the other hand, Trump is running against another Republican...

P.S.  Cool rocks.  I dig the contrast.

Comment by Zanelle on July 15, 2016 at 12:36pm

Yeah, that is a hunk of coral against the black lava rocks.    It will be interesting to see who Hilary picks.

Z, I think the Koch bros hate Trump, have banned his use of their rich data mine and diverted their support into down-ticket races. Charles Koch described the choice between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump as voting for either “cancer or a heart attack.” (Demonstrating that, yet again, Amy has given us a bullshit meme. Or, Amy v. Time magazine, you choose who knows better.)

The question now is whether Pence is enough to bring them around.

It was interesting in amy's picture that the Koch brother supported Hillary...I hadnt heard that.

Z, that's why I say - you want to be careful of taking Amy's memes at face value.

Despite how it looks or what she might say, I don't dump on Amy just to dump on Amy. There are times when I agree with her. We even sorta kinda got along on her fair vote post.

Well, to be fair, if I am going to dump on her, I'll be real clear about it and not criticize her meme or other things she says.

This time I'm saying she tends to be so committed to her position and so strongly opposed to the other that she's not real selective about the truth. That means her readers should be.
