Watch Out: The Very Evil Statist Buttigieg is Gaining in the Polls

Pete Buttigieg
Pete Buttigieg is surging in the Iowa polls.

He is now essentially tied for the lead with  Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, according to a recent New York Times/Siena College poll.

In certain ways, he is even worse than the central planning crackpot Warren.

He appears to want to make public "service" for the evil state some glorious passage for youth.

Dave Weigel reports:
At Buttigieg's town hall in Decorah, he's talking a lot about the national service programs he wants to launch: climate corps, community improvement corps. His dream: When people apply for jobs etc, "the first question is where did you serve and what did you learn?"
Well, yes you would want to ask that question to assess how dangerous of a problem a potential hire would likely be for the firm. That is, you would want to avoid potential hires who have seriously bought into statist thinking.

  2. To a degree, he's correct. When I'm hiring for an open position, the first things I look for in a resume are where the candidate served and what skills they bring to the role I'm hiring for. Some politician's compulsory make-work program, however, is not likely to yield results that will be useful or valuable to my company.

  3. As to service, the pernicious notion that it pertains solely to government functionaries should be confronted at every opportunity. To that end, I've begun using the vapid "thank you for your service" line with everyone who provides something useful to me: restaurant staff, cashiers, hotel clerks, flight attendants, musicians after a concert, my butcher, my tobacconist, my barber. . . . It sparked a great conversation in my barber shop last month.
