Mike Pence slams status quo; reminds us what’s at stake if America doesn’t get behind Trump

Indiana Governor Mike Pence, who has helped turn his home state around, accepted the nomination for vice president at the GOP convention in Cleveland, Wednesday night. In doing so he framed the election in just the right way to help Trump defeat Hillary Clinton.

Of Trump, Pence noted, “at the very moment when America is crying out for something new and different” Donald Trump came along to upset the establishment apple cart. Touting Trump’s “no nonsense leadership,” Pence went on to say “Donald Trump gets it, he’s the genuine article. He’s a doer in a game usually reserved for talkers. And when Donald Trump does his talking he doesn’t tiptoe around the thousand new rules of political correctness.”

Pence on Wednesday insisted the 2016 election has a choice between “the outsider, my running mate, who turned a long-shot campaign into a movement” and Hillary who is, “the exact opposite of a political outsider, the exact opposite of an uncalculating truth-teller.”

“You know, the choice couldn’t be more clear,” Pence said from the stage. “Americans can elect someone who literally personifies the failed establishment in Washington D.C., or we can choose a leader who will fight every day to make America Great Again. It’s change versus status quo. And my fellow Republicans, when Donald Trump become President of the United States of America the change will be huuuuge!”

This is the exact right contrast.

Pence thoroughly slammed the status quo:

You know, for years we’ve had fundamental problems in America that get talked to death in Washington, D.C., but they never get solved, and they even get worse. We’ve seen entire stretches of our country written off by bad economic policies in ways that are deeply unfair to American workers.

Pence also sad that Trump will “never turn his back on those who serve and protect us at home and abroad.” And in a slap at the riotous, murderous Black Lives Matter movement, the Indiana gov. then said, “We will always stand for those who stand on the thin blue line of law enforcement in America.”

Pence also signed on to several policy ideas such as securing the southern borders, revitalizing America’s energy sector after it has been destroyed by Obama — especially the coal industry — and pushing education choice.

The governor also reminded the audience of an extremely important aspect of this election. A Hillary Clinton presidency would mean a thorough destruction of our courts.

As this election approaches, every American should know that while we’re filling the presidency for the next four years, this election will define the Supreme Court for the next forty. We all better think very carefully, very carefully about what this means for our Constitution and limited government. Elect Hillary Clinton and you better get used to being subject to unelected judges using unaccountable power to take unconstitutional actions.

Though let me say, for the sake of the rule of law, for the sake of the sanctity of life, for the sake of our Second Amendment, and for the sake of all our other God-given liberties we must insure that the next president appointing justices to the Supreme Court is Donald Trump.

Finally Pence summed up Donald Trump as the best man for the White House in these turbulent times.

Donald Trump came along and started saying what practically everybody was thinking anyway, that our leaders need to be stronger. Under Donald Trump, our deals will be smarter, our soldiers will have what they need, and our veterans will have what they earned. We will secure our borders, protect our nation. In all this, we will be more serious. And when we do, this nation will start winning again.
