Based on his past voting record sessions is:

Anti abortion. period.
Wants extra penalties for crimes committed to unborn fetuses, while committing other crimes.
No on stem cell research.

No on any type of affirmative action involving women and minorities.

Against same sex marriage. Also against adding sexual orientation to definition of hate crimes. Gay marriage should be banned in the constitution.

He believes banning the pledge to allegiance as being unconstitutional. Flag burning should be a criminal offense.

He has a 0% rating on public health. No to any kind of Medicaid or Medicare used for prescription drugs. Yes to BigPharma pricing. No to children needing those drugs. Limit of medical lawsuits to $250,000. No Obamacare.

He is for privatizing social security.

He is anti public education. Is for school vouchers.

He did vote yes to protecting ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes ecosystems, but he is anti EPA.

He is for banning trigger lock laws on guns. Also voted no against background checks. Voted yes on loosening license & background checks at gun shows.

He is against higher taxes on the wealthy. Is for no more inheritance tax. Believes tax cuts are more important than paying off the national debt.

He is against immigration. He's pro fence. BUT...he is for allowing more foreign workers into the US for farm work.

He supports free trade.

He supports expanding the military. Voted yes on a military pay raise. Voted for going into Iraq and yes, for staying there.

He is for more renewable energy, but wants more oil drilling and no protection for wildlife. Is for drilling on public lands. Also wants no federal money used for research into renewable energy sources. Wants to bar the EPA from regulating greenhouse gases.

Believes weed is a gateway drug. He is for more and harsher penalties for drug offenses.

Believes that the Bush tax cuts helped the economy.




Explain to me just why this is a good thing?

I'll go first, Geeno. Everything in green I agree with, everything in red I disagree with, everything in purple I'm neutral/don't care/don't have enough information.

What's the matter? Breitbart hasn't published a come back for you? No memes to copy/paste?

Think for yourself. (Geeno)

You guys have too much faith in the EPA to act as a benevolent protector of the environment.

You're right we should trust local goveners instead. Im sure they wont sell out and risk our resources and environment.

Oh wait... they already do. The only reason we cant light our rivers on fire and are able to breathe semi clean air in our cities, is the little protection the epa can offer us.

The epa IS corrupt and needs a full overhaul, but dismantling it is one of the dumbest conservative ideas there is. Orders of magnitude dumber than building a giant wall out in the desert even.

When it comes to global warming I think Sessions was the one who said to let god take care of the climate. So him and Pence should do lunch and discuss reality.

Also: don't forget that the President-elect who NEVER settles court cases settled his Trump U scam for $25m. He does settle! Fraud! Sad.

Keep hoping. If you read what he said about weed you'd think he just got done watching "reefer madness".

If he didn't settle out of court, there would be grounds for impeachment right?

"An impeachable offense is whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at a given moment in history." - Gerald Ford, 1970

A president has never been impeached for crimes he was accused of committing prior to assuming office.

I have retreated into a world of pure content where German Idealism lives.

If I was wrong about anything its Kant. Kantian perspective wasnt responsible for the things I admonish. It's useful even today.
