The media has regaled us with the genius of Peter Buttigieg, whom it reminds us, is, like Bill Clinton, a Rhodes Scholar. So he must be a genius?
And then he went on FOX News and demonstrated that he’s all but illiterate.
“States don’t vote, people vote,” Buttigieg said. He added that “if we’re going to call ourselves a democracy,” the U.S. should move to a popular vote system.
We’re not a democracy. None of our documents call us a democracy. We’re a union of states. It’s right there in the name. I realize Buttigieg is a second generation immigrant and the son of a Marxist prof, but that’s no excuse for this level of ignorance.
People vote within the context of a state.
Responding to the newly passed pro-life legislation passed in Alabama, as well as similar bills making their way through other state legislatures, the 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana told Wallace that “abortion is a national right.”
That right must be set down in the same place where our status as a democracy is.
