    most of my life.  It's truly scary, but not at all surprising that Pence is leading the polls in Indiana.  He's woefully ignorant, extreme and consistently hypocritical...AKA, he's a republican.  when the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act he compared it to the tragedy of September 11th.  Seriously.  

    One of his most notable hypocrisies is his railing against "wasteful" government spending....but actively supporting millions in farm subsidies.  He's friendly with a family from my hometown (they host an event with him each year) and they are an extremely wealthy farming family worth millions....who still receive hundreds of thousands of dollars each year in farm subsidies. He has fought hard against ending or reforming farm subsidies...but could care less about defunding Planned Parenthood or any number of social services that amount to wasteful government spending in his jaundiced little eyes.

    It never ceases to disturb me the amount of people who vote not only against their own interests, but against simple common sense.  Those voting for Pence are low-information voters who are obsessed with the false conservatism the republicans of today spew.  I'd love for a surprise upset, but it looks like I'll soon just be feeling sorry for all my friends and family who do live back in Indiana.
