Pete Buttigieg runs for president.
« on: April 15, 2019, 11:35:50 AM »
Pete Buttigieg is going to put the cat among the pigeons. Veteran of Afghanistan, Rhodes scholar, gay married man, democrat, Christian and 37 years old. Mike Pence's nightmare  ;D

I like the guy, but the field is still pretty big, there are others I also think are also good. At least at this point I can't pick which I would support.

However, I will vote for any of the 283 Democrats running for president in 2020, I just hope it's a good one.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

I have absolutely no problem with Mayor Pete's sexual orientation.  I can admire his intellectual achievements as well. I do have a problem with his ultra religious posture.  The puzzling part  is that since he has a more comprehensive education than we ordinary folks, then how can he be such an outspoken public bible thumper?  Is his candidacy just a gimmick or is he actually serious?

A bible-thumper who ignores Leviticus. What a shock. I don't care at all about his sexual orientation, btw. The field is pretty big for now. I just hope the Dems don't turn the primaries into a clown car, although seems to have worked for the Reps.
