"Donald Trump on decaf"

DemocratsJoin us.
Donald Trump just chose Mike Pence to be his running mate -- the most extreme vice presidential pick in a generation. Read on to learn more about Pence, and then pitch in right now to stop them:

Friend --

Here's the thing about this Republican primary that would be funny if it didn't have such serious implications: For the last year, the GOP has been acting like Donald Trump is some wild aberration and not just a bigger, louder mouthpiece for the kind of backward policies and positions they've been promoting for years.

But they're wrong, and there couldn't be a more perfect example of that than Trump's running mate, Mike Pence.

Before he served in Congress and as governor of Indiana, Mike Pence was a talk-radio host. He called himself "Rush Limbaugh on decaf."

Well, you can also think about him as "Donald Trump on decaf." With a record of anti-woman, anti-immigrant, and anti-equality policies, Mike Pence is just as extreme as Trump -- he's just been a little quieter about it.

While Donald Trump might pride himself on being an outsider, Mike Pence has D.C. experience -- experience pushing for a government shutdown over defunding Planned Parenthood. As governor, he was willing to hold up Indiana's entire state budget over Planned Parenthood as well. Not to mention he tried to pass some of the most restrictive anti-choice legislation in the country and once said he "long[ed] for the day that Roe v. Wade is sent to the ash heap of history."

Trump also must have been impressed by the fact his VP hopeful once pushed a bill to block birthright citizenship for children of undocumented immigrants and felt the American people "don't want comprehensive immigration reform."

And if you have heard of Mike Pence, it might be because he made national headlines just last year as he flip-flopped on an anti-LGBT "Religious Freedom Restoration Act," apparently not realizing that businesses had no interest in a bill that would blatantly discriminate until it threatened to cost his state up to $60 million in lost revenue.

The GOP is offering a two-for-one deal on out-of-touch ideology and inconsistent leadership. This is not the future I want to see for our country, and it's up to us to make sure it doesn't happen. Pitch in $10 or whatever you can today to make sure Democrats have what it takes to stand up to the Trump/Pence ticket in November.
