While many Democrats and members of the African-American community are condemning Pete Buttigieg for speaking at a Tea Party event during an unsuccessful run for state treasurer in Indiana in 2010, this illustrates the problem with politics nowadays. Our political system is set up for us to make political compromise to get things done, so when leaders reach out to groups with opposing views, that should be considered a good thing!! While you may not agree with the views of the Tea Party which was rising to popularity in 2010. Don’t discount Buttigieg because of speaking to those with differing views, instead the conversation should be focused on the harmful effects of socialism that he would to bring to this country if elected President!!
