1. because of Nuclear Weapons Issue I will say Trump

and because i don't see Trump being better on women and lgbt issues than Pence . so as horrible as Pence is there Trump still isn't better . especially since Trump has to keep the hateful base happy.

2. Pence won't blow up the world

with nuclear weapons. He might try to distance us from the Russians, too.

6. Well, that depends on whether Pence is an end-of-world Protestant.

Consider... he is an out right theocrat.

4. If scandals wreck Trump's administration to the point where many other Republicans

such as Reince, Chaffee, Ryan, are implicated and have to resign, Republicans w ill no longer have a majority in the House. Then moderates and Democrats might have a chance to negogiate with Pence about cabinet appointees,etc.

I don't think will gut the federal government the way Trump is williing to do.

7. Question abut Pence becoming President if Trump is removed.

How can Pence be considered any more legitimate than Trump if it is found that Trump was elected because of Russian help? How is Pence then legitimate? It does not matter even if he knew or not, he is where he is as much as Trump because of cheating or hacking or whatever they end up finding out.

I know how it usually works but this is different.

Just a question.

My answer to yours is I would rather have Pence as much as I hate everything he stands for simply because I do not think he ever asked anyone why using nuclear weapons would be bad. It scares me to even write that.

8. because the removal would be based on evidence Trump knowing worked with Russia

unless he is impeached for something else.

9. Thanks.

Still, the help that Trump was getting should not leave us with another person we did not elect. It may not have been his fault in any way but he would never be in that place if it wasn't for Trump. Just thinking and asking. *and drinking and asking*

10. The worst case scenario...

is 8 years of Orange Julius Caesar followed by 8 years of Pence the Pious. Ugh, I just threw up in my mouth a little...

Then again, the nuclear apocalypse and ensuing nuclear winter would probably extinguish life as we know it well before the end of Pence's second term...

11. Both are scary, but I at least can see to 2020 with Pence.

Trump is mentally deranged and a threat to our constitutional democracy as well as our world safety.

Besides the only way he becomes President Pence he'll already be seriously comprised and weakened thanks to the stink of the inevitable Trump debacle.

12. Only because I can imagine him causing the end of the world via nukes, I'd say Trump.

Pence, on the other hand, might as well cause the end of the world if installed in office since he would rubber stamp every nutty piece of legislation the GOP Congress will vomit out.

14. They are BOTH

awful in different ways.

But one can perhaps anticipate Pence's awfulness more consistently, given that he has a record - abysmal as it is - in public service. If that can be considered a virtue, Pence might be marginally better, but only by comparison to Trump.

IMHO, we are thoroughly f*cked either way.

15. Pence over Trump

Converting the country to Christianity would take time, it might be bloody, but in the end it would fail. Pushing the button takes a matter of seconds.
