Like I said the other day, there are no original thoughts in the Democrat party.
Nobody running for President on that side of the aisle want to be out of lockstep, so they all end up taking ideas from one another. They just repackage them in their own words, but they are all the same.
Take Buttigieg’s stance on Capitalism. He can’t call himself a Democratic Socialist, because that’s Bernie’s shtick. So he says the same thing that Bernie does about capitalism letting people down and calls himself a Democratic Capitalist, heavy on the Democratic.

How is Democratic Capitalism any different than Democratic Socialism? If you let “the people” through the power of government, tell you how you can use your money, it’s still doomed to fail the way all planned economies fail, regardless of what you call it.
The only let down of modern capitalism is that the richest generation, raised in the greatest lap of luxury ever experienced by humans ever, is so spoiled that they believe that it’s unfair that they have to get a job and work, and can’t all be millionaires in their late 20’s as part time Instagram influencers and so want the goverment to take care of them.
You’ll never hear a Democrat say that.
But I digress…
Now that Beto has proven to be little more than a lackluster angsty teenage furry, trapped in a middle age white man’s body, Pete Buttigieg has become the new media darling.
Eric Swalwell had (barely) more than a dozen people show up at one of his rallies to listen to him rant about taking Americans’ guns away.
The progression of Democrat politics could mean only one thing, Buttigieg had to steal Swalwell’s idea.
Buttigieg says "assault rifles need to be on the table" for a ban because, "We’ve already decided that this is within the Second Amendment because we’ve decided that somewhere in between a slingshot and a nuclear weapon, we can draw a line. And that’s not unconstitutional…" pic.twitter.com/EFU701pWjg

I thank Lt. Buttigieg for his service, but as a fiance intelligence officer with the Navy Reserve, his weapon of war was Quickbooks.
That the Navy made him carry a stripped M4 around base for his single seven month tour in Afghanistan is neither expertise in or justification for the banning and confiscation of assault rifles.
Let me be blunt, my AR-15’s are not on the table.
Neither are those of the 50 million other Americans who own the type of semi-auto rifle that these people would classify as an assault rifle.
Appealing to your Naval service, in which you swore to uphold and defend the Constitution, as rationality to restrict the Second Amendment is both wrong and offensive.
