    I thought I wouldn't tolerate a Democrat to spit hate/crap for one hour. This guy, andrew yang, changed my mind. He was interviewed by Foxnews 5 times and 0 times by CNN. That should tell you he's onto something. CNN is a fuxking X10 joke!

    I just donated $20 to his campaign, just to stir the shit pot of democrate primary. Would love to see him destroy Elizabeth Warren on the debate stage. All the current democratic candidates are running on the anti trump campaign. No one has a solution, all hate! Andrew Yang answered question directly. He actually unites the parties.

    Exactly. That guy is a steaming turd of policies. I made about 5 minutes of that video... No one wants to bear any reshpnonsahtrilitay for going into an unskilled career, or getting some bullshit college degree because they bought the dream:. DO WHAT YOU WANT AND THE MONEY WILL ACTUALIZE.

    That being said, when they invent robocops, IlI go collect my UBI

    If it’s got a ‘D’ it ain’t for me. It’s a pretty simple f***ing rule.

    Not only that, but now your name is forever on his commie mailing lists, which I'm sure he'll hand over to the commie party for future spamming purposes.

    So how does this work, do they just send me an extra 1k or is it deducted automatically from my taxes that are withheld? Or, more likely, will my taxes go up 2k per month then they "give back" 1k of that and act like they are so wonderful to me?

    I assume that if you pay >$1K in taxes you don't qualify.

    "Balance of Public Needs with Private Rights"

    Gotta love how all these communists that push for gun control use the same exact language pushing for mandatory vaccinations. Notice a trend?

    Likely, although then it wouldn't be very "universal".

    My greatest fear is that one of these loony candidates goes independent and wins a big state or two creating a situation where no one gets to 270 electoral votes. You do know what happens then right? The House of Representative decides who the next President will be. Does not even have to be someone who ran in the election. It's in the Constitution.

    Why beat around the bush? A platform of giving people free money is direct. People are stupid. It’s brilliant!

    I listened to him with Joe Rogan. He compared his plan to dividends that Alaskans get for oil. His plan is to do away with many welfare programs to offset the dividend. Then supposedly people will spend it on small business and whatnot. Obvious downfall is that naturally smart people will save/invest and poor people will still be poor, but have nicer tv's and sneakers and the welfare programs will never go away.

    His plan was not as hairbrained as it sounds, but it won't work because bad decision makers will always make bad decisions.

    I think they also talked about his gun control stance and he said he didn't really have any opinion yet either way.

    I dont support him, but it was an interesting podcast even though it made me pull my hair out at times

    Getting a "tie" with the way the EVs are laid out is pretty damned difficult, especially considering most of the time like less than 10 states actually decide the
    election. More than likely a looney left independent flipper would end up taking votes away from the dem candidate and destroying their chance to win.

    Yang thinks 2A people are stupid and can't read his campaign website.

    "No opinion" but he happens to have this lengthy document on his website? Yeah sure buddy.

    I pretty much agree about an independent destroying one party's chances by siphoning votes away but a "tie" in Electoral votes is never an issue. 270 is a majority. there are only 538 available. It is possible that no one out of three candidates gets 270 then it goes to the house of reps. This would only happen if the independent wins a state.

    Yes that is definately a strong opinion for someone that was essentially saying he needed to do more research on the gun subject. Must have known a lot of pro gun people listen to that podcast.

    Yang was all over northern NH today. A friend who would never vote for him, showed up and took a pic to add to her collection. (I got a text once from my wife saying she was walking our dog down Main Street, saw a news crew following Lindsey Graham, and whipped a 180 because our dog is very photogenic, and she knew I would crap if Graham petting our dog made the news.)

    I understand exactly why the OP donated: to monkey wrench the coming clown show that will be the Democrat primary.

    After reading his stands...I think OP should demand his money back. Might as well give it to Liz Warren.

    Yes. Nothing beats stirring the shitpot of current DNC. UBI is nothing worse than Bernie's policy. Yang probably doesn't have a chance, but I would like to push him to the front stage and let him give it a go. Liberal media didn't give him a chance, I wonder why.
