  1. Greetings Tom —

    Thanks for the background on Gov. Pence. I like what I see on paper and am glad he takes a more conservative stance on many important issues. Perhaps Gov. Pence’s presence will add the balance that some conservative voters feel is missing in Donald Trump. What I know for sure is that the Trump/Pence team are truly interested in stopping the insanity that has gripped our nation and want to “Make America Great Again!” And I LOVE that!

    1. Hi Dr Deb!

      Thank you again for visiting TheCivilVoice.Com and for your comment here regarding “Who is Mike Pence.”

      I am very comfortable with a more conservative VP pick from Donald Trump! And the fact that Governor Pence has been a successful governor for the state of Indiana is certainly a huge plus! My only concern is that some of his viewpoints might be a little strong to get some of the independent votes Trump will need to win this election.

      I hate to think that Hillary Clinton could actually win. I’m already sick from the Obama administration and the destruction of the country that has occurred on his watch. While I can’t believe people would actually vote for her at all, the polls indicate that she is still getting a ton of votes.

      It’s hard to believe. She should be in prison. Its clear that she is a criminal in more ways than one, and yet people still want to put her in office.


      While I do have some reservations about Mr. Trump, I am not willing to compromise my personal values enough to even consider Mrs. Clinton as a suitable president.

      This is going to be an interesting election season, that’s for sure!


  2. Yes i agree that this is an interesting election, infact this might be the most interesting election because Donald Trump, the stronger candidate i presume, has a very different character for a president. The way he thinks, talk, humiliates, his ego, his pride…. but I am not saying that they are all bad. Because of his ego and strong character, and the fact that he is a good negotiator, he might really be able to make America great again.

      I guess you have to have a pretty strong personality in order to put yourself in a position like running for president. I, like many people, are surprised that Mr. Trump won the republican nomination for president. Most people thought when he entered the race that he wouldn’t make it to the end. But he has. It is clear to me that the people are tired of the status quo and Mr. Trump represents an outsider in the political spectrum. Perhaps that is a good thing. It seems clear that the politicians that have been running the show haven’t really been doing a good job. I suppose we need to shake it up a bit.

      Governor Pence is a conservative politician that may be seen as a moderating force from some of Trump’s wilder moments. He will likely be accepted by conservatives that don’t think that Trump is conservative enough. Since he is an experience politician that has been a successful executive as Governor of Indiana, he also would be ready to be president in the event of mishap that would take Mr. Trump out of office.

      Thank you so much for your comment here!
      All the best to you in your endeavors.
