Medicare for all, Green New Deal, Reparations, Climate Change, Elimination of the Electoral College… Yes, take a gander at South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s list of 2020 policy proposals and you quickly realize he’s as radical and dangerous to the very foundation of liberty as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (albeit far more likable). 

Suggested campaign slogan for Mayor Pete: “Communism: We’ll Get ‘Er Right This Time.”

Here’s the way the disasterous list breaks down:

Health care: “Medicare for All Who Want It” as a pathway to Medicare for All

Racial equality: Create a commission to propose reparations policies for Black Americans and close the racial wealth gap

LGBTQ rights: Pass the Equality Act; reverse the ban on transgender military service; enforce the nondiscrimination provisions of the Affordable Care Act and key federal civil rights laws

Climate change: Implement a Green New Deal with all available tools including a carbon tax-and-dividend for Americans, and major direct investment to build a 100{fa7adc80df2e023940cc66418ee6bf3ea4951b478396a103014e7d5f7d7da9d3} clean energy society

Gun control: Raise the standard of gun protection and ownership to make all Americans safer

Extremism: Increase federal resources for countering domestic terrorism and white supremacist violence

Electoral college: A national popular vote to replace the Electoral College

We heard he’s for free puppies too.
