Impeach Donald Trump – Be careful what you wish for

Impeach Donald Trump.
Liberals smile with glee at the very mention of the I word, but liberals everywhere should be careful what they wish for. Removing Trump from the office will elevate Mike Pence to the Presidency. While you may think Trump’s administration has been nothing less than a circus, a Pence administration will be nothing, if not extremely dangerous to the progress achieved by liberals over the years. Pence will be sane and rational. He will comport himself with decency. He won’t be bogged down in one scandal after another, and with all that going for him, he will be able to methodically push his ultra conservative agenda through congress. Here’s just a sample of what President Pence would bring to the table.
As governor of Indiana, Pence signed the most abortion-restrictive regulations in the nation, banning abortion even in cases where the fetus has a “genetic abnormality” such as Down syndrome and holding doctors legally liable if they had knowingly performed such procedures.
He led the national fight to defund Planned Parenthood and forced so many of its clinics to close in Indiana that he triggered an H.I.V. epidemic in one county.
In 2015 he helped pass one of the nation’s harshest “religious freedom” laws that would have protected businesses who wanted to refuse service to LGBT people if they cited religious objections.
As a congressman, he opposed federal funding that would support treatment for people suffering from H.I.V. and AIDS unless the government simultaneously invested in programs to discourage people from engaging in same-sex relationships.
He is opposed to any restrictions on assault rifles.
He is skeptical of climate change and wrote a letter to then-President Obama threatening to disobey the new regulations on coal mandated by the Clean Power Plan.
President Pence.
Liberals, let’s be careful what we wish for.
