PENCE MUST GO
Two years ago we were able to help defeat an attempt at putting a constitutional ban on gay marriage in Indiana law. The authors of the bill HJR-3 are the same authors of the new RFRA or SB101. This bill was completely vindictive on the part of the authors, supporters (religious think tanks) and Mike Pence.
We have a governor who does not know the definition of "Separation of Church and State." When a super majority inflicts potential harm on a minority, I have concern. I'm tired of the political bullies and want to send a message that this behavior is not tolerated.
Lastly, I want to make sure this message is not lost over the next 18 months. The newly organized PAC will be 100% volunteer and the generous donations will be used entirely for LGBT organizations at the end of this very long campaign.
Signs are $10.00 each

http://www.indystar.com/story/opinion/readers/2015/04/08/avoid-divisive-actions-vote/25482205/ How to avoid divisive actions: Vote Actions by the governor and legislature have given Indiana more publicity nationally than it has received in years. Unfortunately it has been almost universally negative — hurting our image, economy and credibility. In the whirling debate over Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act, Gov. Mike Pence and his fellow Republicans are right about one thing. The problem we should worry about is government overreach. It's just not the kind of overreach that they have in mind. As a veteran of the culture wars, Pence clearly likes to draw lines in the sand. It's an approach that's evident in his TV appearances, press conferences and op-eds. It's the same approach that led to government shutdowns and zealous impeachment proceedings in Washington. Today, in Indianapolis, the same approach has brought little but disruptive partisanship and serious policy missteps. Three noteworthy steps toward government overreach have been taken in recent years. First, the governor and his legislative allies have consistently worked to undermine the democratic process and the duly elected superintendent of public instruction, Glenda Ritz. Pence began his term by creating a new executive agency, the Center for Education and Career Innovation. Sounds good, but, unfortunately, the agency's most significant practical effect was to support the Republican-appointed State Board of Education in its battles with Ritz, a Democrat. Even after the agency's demise, the fact that this year's legislature did not totally strip Ritz of power was a surprise to many. Second, contrary to the wishes of those who (like former governor Mitch Daniels) urged that social issues be put on the back burner, Republicans in the legislature pushed ahead with a proposed constitutional amendment that would define marriage to be solely a union between one man and one woman. Despite the existence of a statute that expressed the same sentiment, and against the wishes of prominent economic and community leaders throughout the state, Pence and his allies would not back down. A sustained citizens' campaign against the proposed amendment ensued, and but for the votes of a few courageous legislators (who were later targeted for defeat in Republican primaries), House Joint Resolution 6 would have passed and the issue placed on the 2014 ballot. Finally, we now have RFRA. Sponsored by a number of key Republicans, including some who were elected last year in response to the defeat of HJR 6, Indiana's RFRA quietly moved through the General Assembly during this year's session. Opposition by many in Indiana had no effect on stopping the legislation. Yet, as soon as the governor signed Senate Bill 101 into law, the opposition reached a tipping point. A host of individuals, groups, businesses and newspapers both in Indiana and nationally, from all walks of life, have responded with concern and condemnation. Pence's subsequent efforts to claim that the bill was a nondiscriminatory, freedom-based piece of legislation, and to blame the media for misrepresenting the act and the state have only made the situation worse. Amending the law was positive and necessary, but the damage already done will not be so easily corrected. In promoting such divisive measures, the governor and the legislature have neglected to enact measures supported by Hoosiers of all stripes, such as raising the minimum wage or improving Indiana's abysmal environmental record. Ordinary citizens suffer the consequences. Yes, In some ways, the problem is one of government overreach. But it's not the overreach of big government liberals — certainly not here in Indiana. Instead, the problem we have is the excessive overreach of an arrogant and out-of-touch supermajority of Republican legislators backed by a radically conservative Republican governor. Our hope is that thoughtful Hoosiers will recognize these shortcomings when it comes time to vote in 2016 and bring to power those who would bring a more measured and moderate approach. It is time for Democrats and pragmatic Republicans to begin recruiting, financially supporting and promoting candidates who will do that. Such a prospect is not a fanciful wish. The reliable Howey Politics Indiana reported that the "Republican State Central Committee is in near rebellion," fearing voter backlash in the 2016 elections due to the perceived overreach. It's time to bring that backlash to political change.

Pence will be our next Vice President of this country. He has moved up while you are still playing the victim.
Actually, it would seem that you are the one who doesn't understand "separation of church and state". You, and most liberals, use it out of context to further your agenda. Disagree, to be sure, but at least be honest about it.
Our elected representatives are sworn to uphold the law equally for all citizens in their constituency. Mike Pence and the conservative Republican state legislators have failed to do so, and therefore must be denied reelection! Vote 'em out!
I made a $20 donation, but forgot to give my mailing address for the "Expel Pence" sign. It is 6264 Old Barn Ct. Indianapolis, IN 46268
Hi Kevin, Sorry about that. I put it in the info when I donated but it must have gotten lost. My address: 1106 Bellevue Ave, South Bend, IN 46615 My phone: 574-288-5951 - just in case Many thanks! We look forward to those signs in our yard. We hate him as much as you do!! pam
Kevin, We paid for 2 signs and 1 bumper sticker on Sept 3rd via Discover and have still not received them. Any info on when we might receive them? Thanks in advance for any info. We are looking forward to displaying them in our yard!
I love wearing my Pence Must Go T-shirt! I get positive comments and some dirty looks but I wear it with a lot of pride and knowledge that he, Pence, Must truly go!!!!
Nothing wrong with a person refusing service because of religious beliefs. there's plenty of other stores you can do business with. If you want to get a wedding cake for a gay wedding and one bakery said they don't do that due to religious beliefs, than go to another local bakery that does. People are to easily offended these days. We are giving back simple rights, liberties and freedoms we fought and shed blood for all because someone is offended. Grow up people.
I just tried to donate but got an error message from the gofundme people saying you (Kevin Warren) need to check your gofundme account and fix something. Please do, then I'll be back to donate to your campaign.
I just donated $50. Would you please send me 3 signs? I can't get to your home to pick them up so do you mind mailing them to me? Send me a private email and I'll send you my address if that's okay. Thanks for doing this!!!!!
