Pete Beuttigieg not the answer to beating Trump

I have been well aware for awhile the the State and National Democratic party is trying to beat Republicans by going ‘Republican Light’ a strategy that has NEVER worked and NEVER will.

While it is a close draw, a majority of Americans are Center to the Left (by a just a sliver). They proved this in the last election by giving Clinton 6 million more votes than Trump. I also think that Americans are becoming more Center to Left.

Pete is NOT the guy;

Buttigieg’s work, personal and political, has consistently served the interests of Silicon Valley, the police and the military-industrial complex. If the only way to oust Donald Trump is with someone like Buttigieg, then the far right really has flipped the board, and the regulatory capture of any so-called opposition is already complete.

We need a strong moderate that leans a little left with bread and butter issues in mind like better jobs, national healthcare and better trade agreements. We also don’t need another racist.

I am willing to support my neighbor’s cat, if I think that cat has the best chance of beating Trump.

A somewhat similar piece was written about O’Rourke a few months ago, too:

This race is about ending the Theater of the Absurd, of getting this orange mess out of the West Wing, that is priority one to me. Right now, Joe is the answer, but we will have to see. I remember back in 2014/15, when I thought Hillary was the only one who could stop Jeb, too.

Enjoyed hearing ‘BaitO’ yesterday on Meet The Press provide detail to his immigration policy. We (the US government) should insert ourselves and intervene in the economies and matters of law enforcement in countries in Central America such that inhabitants are less compelled to want to emigrate from their respective countries.

What Beto is talking about is a Marshall Plan for Central America. Some have suggested the same for the Mideast too. I, myself, would like to see a Marshall Plan for the Rust Belt and especially for West Virginia.

“I, myself, would like to see a Marshall Plan for the Rust Belt and especially for West Virginia.”
With these words and as a man whose stability of genius has advanced to extreme levels, you demonstrate that you get it – the health, vigor and vitality of OUR economy is of primary interest to about half of the electorate. The other roughly half will follow the lead of those of the far-left fringe who jeered Hickenlooper at the Convention of Cali Democrats this past weekend.
I can’t wait for BaitO to bring to cafes in Iowa his ‘Marshall Plan for Central America’. (aka “how I will take your money and give it away to those more deserving in Central America.”)

ESG [fka VSG),
Are you running the South Dakota (or Iowa?) campaign of any of the Aspiring 23 (and growing)?

TGfG,

No, I am not. I appreciate the kind words. The Democratic Party needs to be a “full service” political party once again; and until it is, it will continue to beg for new constituencies to stay afloat like a capitalist looking for new markets, when all the capitalist really needs to do is offer a quality product with quality assurance, because then they will all come to your door regardless of color, sex, or creed.

Our two political parties have involved into mechanisms where one protects wealth and the wealthy, while the other works to enfranchise the disenfranchised.

Although, the latter goal is just and right, the Democratic Party’s unwillingness to truly deliver for the working class in this country over the last 40 years speaks of how the elite have through the influence of money into our politics carved out a political reality, where both political parties serve only the elites needs by offering tax cuts and cheap employment, and an enfranchisement which is mostly limited to an opportunity of low wages.
