    First let me be clear, as if most of you on here don't know this already, I respect the Will of the American voters, as I do any free democracy and they have spoken loud and clear, and they want Donald J Trump to be president. They received their wish.

    However, if Pence were president would Pence follow the same economic path Trump has taken, by renegotiating NAFTA, confronting trade abusers, remaining loyal to "America First", or would he be more of an Establish GOP?

    My argument is that he would be forced to remain loyal to Trump in regards to the America First mantra with some level of patriotic populism. Not just because it is absolutely necessary to reign in those nations who are abusing America and American workers, which is a danger for the sustainability of the U.S going forward if not addressed. Also, if he doesn't remain loyal to those voters who took a change on Trump, the Democrats turn a hard left and regain back all the states that Trump flipped from the Democrats, especially the Rust Belt states and probably regain full control of government and fairly quickly.

    Thoughts on how you all believe he would govern?

    He was establishment before, no reason to believe he'll change.

    We will find out when he's elected after Trump's two terms. All Presidents have different styles of leadership, except Obama, who had none, so yes it will be different.

    Check his record. He's sharia law all the way. Completely against the US Constitution and against personal freedom and rights.

    IOW, perfect for the rabid right.

    And make no mistake, there are plenty in the R congress who would love to see basic rights taken from Americans. Watch closely. They'll make a lot of noise about non-issues while making any end run around the big stuff.

    Just as they did with gorsuch. That's how the RWNJs have made sure that Big Money continues to control our elections. The US has seen its very last honest election and you can thank the trump voters for that. You'll have to ask them why they wanted that.

    a President Pence would make the left of center very, very unhappy.

    The other 75% would probably like him excepting the neo-cons and the white solidarity folks.

    and,,

    I agree.

    Pence would love to end the first Amendment. He has said it as often as trump has.

    Neither of them would protect the constitution.

    That's why trumpkins voted for the two of them - they believed they could get their dictator, their daddy, owner, boss, someone who would take care of them.
