Are there any British people reading this? May I ask you how the idea of ending your own freedom of movement with the 1st of Jan 2021 makes you feel now?
But yeah he’s just a closet Republican….
What’s Pete Buttigieg like? I’m kind of ashamed to say I hadn’t heard of him until now lol. Meaning I haven’t seen any criticisms OR support, so I’m very surprised to see him win in Iowa
he’s literally just like, a progressive candidate that is also focused on career and pragmatism? people first went after him because of internalized homophobia but then that was no longer acceptable so they started calling him a republican despite the fact that he
but like. people latched on to him saying “hey like, medicare for all is going to be really messy and might not work in our current system so what i want to do is expand coverage so everyone has access to it, but we don’t have a system where there’s private doctors only for the rich” which is what happens in single-payer systems. nobody like, fucking reads so they call him a republican despite that being a really solid plan.
the other thing people latched onto is the fact he served in afghanistan because omg bootlicker!!! the military industrial complex is bad yeah but to go after everyone who served, especially someone who served as a gay man under don’t ask don’t tell for some of his time serving, is unnecessary and tone deaf.
personally, i think he’s too young to be president, but i’d be honored to vote for him. the man has a good head on his shoulders, i believe he would listen to his advisors who have the experience he lacks, and as a gay episcopalian myself, we come from a similar stock and i find him very relatable.
anyway if you want to read more here’s his politico platform profile and here is his website where you can read more about his platform in detail.
Try to imagine Dutch people being bothered if they hear people speak English with each other on the streets of Amsterdam. Just imagine that!
