You can find Mayor Buttigieg's campaign website here, if you want: https://peteforamerica.com/issues/


It's not so much a platform as it is a Christmas tree with a gift on it for every Democrat special interest. I'll label each present by the client group and will add some details about the policies in a later post.

“Medicare for All Who Want It” as a pathway to Medicare for All. Obamacare defenders and health care bureaucrats.


Debt-free college. College students, especially non-white ones, who would get extra money.


Major federal investment in clean water and wastewater infrastructure, transportation and mobility, rural broadband, and climate adaptation and resilience. Construction unions and global warming agitators.

Overhaul the Federal Arbitration Act that stacks the deck against consumers and workers. The American Trial Lawyers Association.

Create a commission to propose reparations policies for Black Americans and close the racial wealth gap. Blacks, especially those who get jobs on the proposed commission.

Federal support for higher teacher pay, targeted to districts where it will bring the most benefit. Teachers' unions.

Freedom means that your opportunities aren’t limited because of your gender. Feminists.

Access to comprehensive reproductive health care. Abortion-on-demand enthusiasts.

Pass a new Wagner Act to support the role of organized labor and defend the right of workers to organize. Labor union officials.

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. LBGTQRSTUVWXYZ

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% clean energy society. Warm-mongers.

Pass comprehensive immigration reform. Hispanics, especially illegal aliens.

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

Strengthen election security. Ballot fraud specialists.

Raise the minimum wage to $15 and strengthen overtime protections. Union officials and poverty pimps.

National affordable housing investment; protections for tenant rights. Poverty pimps.

Create incentives for states to reverse mass incarceration and abolish policies perpetuating racial inequality and disparities in the criminal legal system. Black criminals.

Invest in veterans health care and education. Veterans.

Increase federal resources for countering domestic terrorism and white supremacist violence. Blacks and would-be secret policemen.

Small-donor matching system for federal elections. Splinter party candidates.

Establish independent, statewide redistricting commissions. Democrats.

True political representation for the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Blacks and Puerto Ricans.

A national popular vote to replace the Electoral College. Democrats.

Depoliticize the Supreme Court. Democrats.

Expand opportunities for national service. Student debtors.

Miscellaneous platform planks not included above:

Revive the Equal Rights Amendment. Abortion not only on demand, but also free of charge. Make being homo grounds for asylum for illegal immigrants, then be amazed at how many illegal immigrants claim to be homosexual. "Decarbonize" transportation and industry. Invest in building retrofits for energy efficiency; wouldn't the owners do that anyway, if it were worth the money?

Amnesty for illegal aliens, no restrictions on anchor babies or chain immigration.

On gun control, abolish the "boyfriend loophole." I had to look that one up. This refers to a law (I don't know if it passed) which forbids people convicted of certain domestic violence crimes from owning a gun. But, that prohibition applies only to spouses or former spouses, to those cohabiting with the victim of the domestic violence, or have a child by him or her, or are the parent or guardian of the victim of the domestic violence. It does not apply to a current or former boyfriend or anybody with whom the victim of the domestic violence has or had an informal relationship.

Buttiboy would also establish a national gun registry and would "hold the gun industry accountable.' For what and how? Not specified.

Buttigieg wants employer-paid family and medical leave legally required, as well as federally paid child care and pre-school.

He wants to end homelessness for families with children and wants federal protection for tenants from unjust eviction.

On crime, he would abolish the death penalty, legalize pot, reduce the use of solitary confinement, and "ban the box." That is, make it illegal to ask a job applicant if he has a criminal record. He would "end over-reliance on parole, probation and supervised release." But, weren't those originally instituted as alternatives to incarceration, which Buttigieg says he wants to drastically reduce?

According to Butthead, "All Americans should be able to live without fear of intimidation and violence. Today, white supremacist extremism and domestic terrorist attacks are on the rise, threatening both our citizens and the very soul of the nation. " Mr. Mayor, it wasn't white supremacists who killed fifty people at that nightclub in Miami, it was Omar Mateen, who said he did it for the Islamic State. White supremacists did not kill fourteen people and wound 22 others at that Christmas party in San Bernardino. White supremacists did not blow up pressure cooker bombs at the Boston Marathon, it was a couple of Muslims. While the USA does have some white supremacists and some of them do perpetrate violence, they are NOT THE MAIN DANGER.


Hizzonor would make Election Day a national holiday. I guess the idea is to encourage voter turnout. But, Buttigieg would also expand early voting and institute voting by mail, so wouldn't making Election Day a federal holiday just be shortening the annual work schedule?

Buttigieg would abolish gerrymandering by requiring each state to be reapportioned by an "independent commission." Good luck with that. California has an "independent commission" to reapportion her Congressional districts and is as severely gerrymandered as any other state.

Buttiboy would give D.C. a voting Congressman and two Senators, all of whom would hold safe Democratic seats. He would abolish the Electoral College and replace it with a national popular vote for President.

One of his most revealing ideas is how he would pack the Supreme Court. "Ten members are confirmed in the normal political fashion, with the other five promoted from the lower courts by the unanimous agreement of the other ten." A self-packing Supreme Court! Buttigieg would also "create a bipartisan reform commission for the purpose of recommending structural improvements to protect the Supreme Court from further politicization." No fair unpacking it after President Buttigieg has packed it.

"Mr. Mayor, your city of South Bend has a violent crime rate which is 152% higher than Indiana statewide and 157% higher than the national average (Source: cityrating.com). Why have you failed to control crime in your city and what law enforcement policies would you pursue as President?"

"We need to end the racist practice of mass incarceration and end over-reliance on probation, parole and supervised release. We must hold the gun industry accountable. We must abolish capital punishment. We must prohibit employers from asking job applicants if they have a criminal record."

"How would any of that have prevented any of the 6,000 violent crimes committed in South Bend in 2016?"

"As a veteran, I find your bigotry disgusting and un-American."

Couldn't care less about Buttplug's soon to crash and burn pResidential campaign.

Would rather watch paint dry, or a car rust, or a cat washing his nether regions instead.... :eyebrows:
