What Trump’s Behavior Says About Pence!

 

If you haven’t seen the 2005 video that categorically reveals the underbelly of the beastly Republican nominee for President, Donald Trump, here it is….

But what does this say about the judgement of Mike Pence who’s riding on Trump’s coat tails?

How many times have we heard the Republican nominee for Vice President, Indiana Governor Mike Pence,  claim that Trump didn’t
say what we all heard him say? Do we really want a Vice President, and possibly a President, who tries to manipulate our reality?

Right in front of our eyes during the VP debate, Democratic nomineeeTim Kaine asked Pence how he could justify Trump’s ideology. Pence failed to provide a shred of defense for the positions of support he’d taken. At other times he excused Trumps’s behavior by telling us that Trump really doesn’t mean what he says. Excuse me?? Really????

Time after time, Trump has given us a clear glimpse into his mysoginist, immoral mindset. Yet Mike Pence blatantly told us to close our eyes to the obvious. He has an opportunity, today, to stand up and be a man by renouncing his running mate whose mindset shouldn’t exist in a locker room, let alone in the oval office!

Pence’s past demonstrates he can’t even support the Republican platform that Trump espouses to rally votes!

Trump’s claim that he’ll keep jobs from disappearing to Mexico are surely not backed by Pence’s track record. In his own state, he lost Carrier Corp and United Technologies Electronic Controls…. 2100 jobs. And guess where they went! You got it,,,, Mexico! The economy of Indiana was shown to be the slowest growing in the country. So much for his ability to bolster the US economy and keep jobs in our country!

Why does Trump’s campaign keep ticking like the  Energizer Bunny? 

energizer-bunnyTrump’s support base is comprised of people who are mysoginist and racist! Anyone who could possibly vote for this man after hearing how he objectifies women is grotesquely misogynist themselves. This election will show us just how much bigotry exists in this country! People who here-to-fore thought misogyny existed as a small minority of our population, and that our country is basically comprised of people who are morally intact, should heed the wake-up-call this election provides.

Regarding Pence’s level of morality…..

How does the Republican party think we can support someone who is so self-consumed with riding a grotesquely misogynist’s coattails into the Vice-Presidency, that he doesn’t have the balls (pardon me) to stand up to immorality? Even if Mike Pence withdraws his brown nosing face from Donald Trump’s hindquarters, and denounces him as the Republican candidate at this late date, it is blatantly obvious that he lacks the character and judgment we need anywhere near the White House! Any consideration the Republican party gives to replacing Donald Trump, should not consider putting Mike Pence in that role!

The Biology of Political Preference

Are #Democrats more responsive to #oxytocin?I guess I’m not the only one who suspects that Republican support for Donald Trump smacks of sociopathic alignment.  A new study with well stated replication protocols is underway to determine the impacts of oxytocin on political preferences.

The study whose caption is “Oxytocin and the Biological Basis for Interpersonal and Political Trust,” is currently being spearheaded by Citizen Science Belleville. The organization  was formed to replicate studies of experiments to improve health, relationships or the well being of future generations. They focus on studies they deem important so that there’s a more significant and broader basis from which to base conclusions. Often, initial studies take place with limited participation and are faulted for having skewed results. Citizen Science Belleville sets high standards to replicate the original trial and their findings can either lend credibility, or not, to the original findings.

So far, the study of political behavior found that intranasal administration of 40 IU of oxytocin significantly increases trust in the government for Democrats, but not for Republicans. Based on those findings, the current Presidential race seems to split down morality lines with morally intact folks, those who respond to oxytocin, identifying as Democrats, and those who do not respond to oxytocin identifying as Republicans.

The original study was conducted by Merolla, J. L., Burnett, G., Pyle, K. V., Ahmadi, S., & Zak, P. J. (2013). Here’s the link: Oxytocin and the biological basis for interpersonal and political trust. Political Behavior, 35(4), 753-776.
