Mike Pence was in the right place at the right time and did the most absolute wrong thing a self-described “Christian” or even patriot could do in 2021. He didn’t stand up for the best principles of what a Christian believes. He didn’t stand for the country. He didn’t even stand. He could have defended the oppressed, the poor, and the meek who had their voices silenced and their votes nullified, and been entered into the historical annals of our country along with other mighty pillars of integrity and virtue like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln. He was put in place by God and given the opportunity to show the world how to lead a country in righteousness and truth. Instead he showed us….nothing. A spine like a bowl of spaghetti. A will that wasn’t. Emptiness and hypocrisy. An embarrassment to all who genuinely follow God’s Word.
He says he would do it again the same way, and he is implying that he wants to run for president. I hope he does. I hope he ignores the polling that shows him a very distant also-ran, because then most of the country could show him exactly what he means to us as a leader. He trod on the downtrodden, crapped on the Constitution, and dumped trash on freedom-loving individuals everywhere. In his spineless destruction of God-given values he demonstrated his disdain for every good thing that built this country.
We could call him a villain, but he’s a long ways below any self-respecting evil person. At least a useless sack of excrement like Hitler or Stalin stood for something. It was the wrong and evil something, but they could be given a little credit for having a purpose and following through. Not Mr. Pence. There was nothing momentous or earth-shattering that he had to do. There was reasonable doubt that some of the elections were filled with fraud. He simply had to send electors back to states and direct that the states straighten out their election issues. That’s it. He didn’t have to create law like a bunch of the secretaries of states did. He didn’t have to twist the Constitution all out of proportion like a Democrat. All he had to do was follow it. His responsibility was already outlined in the law of the land. He just had to uphold his oath of office and stand in the gap.
Mike Pence isn’t a villain. He isn’t a great leader, or even just a leader. There’s nothing to him. He’s a caricature of a Christian, an empty suit, a typical politician with his finger in the wind. A hollow man.
