It is now unreasonable to think that Mike Pence could ever succeed in his goal of replacing Donald Trump. Pence’s goal has been made obvious by everything he’s done, even though it’s quite evident that his ultimate goal is to usurp the title of president. As Palmer Report has previously shown, Pence believes that he has backup from individuals who currently maintain power, while still not realizing the boot of justice is about to fall on him.
Let’s assume for a moment that this unlikely scenario actually happens. If Trump were removed from power, there would likely be immense applause and joy, as people celebrated the ouster of an individual that was despised by 99% of people in the world, and then Pence becomes the next President of the United States.
What would a Pence presidency look like? Based on we’ve observed so far, it wouldn’t be any better than Trump’s has. While Pence has gone out of his way to pretend he cares about human rights (link), he has shown his true opinion during the many times he spoke out about his belief in “conversion therapy,” part of his long and documented hatred of gay individuals (link). During his time as governor of Indiana, Pence promoted homophobia and a lack of education in schools that resulted in a massive HIV breakout in the state (link).
While we can clearly see the damage already done by Donald Trump, if Mike Pence ever took over, we can also see the atrocities that he would commit against a nation of people still hoping for progress instead. As we move from Trump, it’s necessary to remember what else could have happened. As Robert Mueller goes after the worst of the worst, let us not forget that many people involved had goals of world dominance. It’s best to remember what could have been while we work through what currently is, and go from there.
