becoming president is more then just making generic campaign promises, we want to know we can relate and connect with him personally and that he has a stand up character and good heart

looking at his Wikipedia page looks scripted, he has no tabloid drama or rumors

he seems perfect and nobodies perfect its relatable

give us something we can relate to trump gave us 30 years of getting to know him on TV

Obama wrote several books, tv and radio interviews even Obama’s ex girlfriends wrote a book

Kamala even told fake stories about smoking weed

Biden’s messy home drama with his kids is known his family that died is known

Warren got fired for getting pregnant lied to get scholarships

Bernie the clumsy grandpa

People relate to them
So people relate to billionaires like Trump & Bloomberg? People didn't know Obama or relate to him...he was simply inspirational and a breath of fresh air.

Yang has an autistic child and he's said he only wants to be president because of the state of the country and where it's headed....everyone should be able to relate to that last part.

So i had the tv on sunday morning. Cleaning, waiting on football pre-game to start. And be got damn Michael Bloomberg ole bullsh*t campaign ad played twice......TWICE in the span of ten minutes. This jackass is trying buy his way into the presidency. We cant let this sh*t stand...i mean once he starts talking people will see through his empty "both stands gotta work together" "dont be mean to billionaires because their feelings will get hurt if raise their taxes" rhetoric. If his campaign doesn't go down in spectacle fiery fashion we will be dealing with these super rich jackasses in our politics for the next 20 years
This is why we need Andrew Yang. Read up on his policy for "Democracy Dollars"...

We need to diminish the influence that mega-wealthy individuals and companies have in our elections. While we must push for a Constitutional amendment to allow our campaign finance laws to properly limit the power that the top 1% have, we must act much faster to save our democratic processes....The easiest way to do this is to provide Americans with publicly funded vouchers they can use to donate to politicians that they support. Every American gets $100 a year to give to candidates, use it or lose it. These Democracy Dollars would, by the sheer volume of the US population, drown out the influence of mega-donors.

Imagine running for office when every American has $100 Democracy Dollars to give to their favorite candidate. Just 10,000 supporters could mean $1 million for your campaign.

he's too perfect and boring where's the controversy

does he have a mistress, ex GF, say racist things, hide his cigarette habit, pothead growing up, caught in a lie, fired from a job, laid off in 2008, or foreclosed house, basketball or football team

U know when ur threatened to get kicked out the house unless you find a job, and u find one in 3 days?

When ur put in a bad position, thatís when it forces u to elevate yourself lol

I understand what he is saying. There are a lot of consumption taxes that are in place to deter people from buying the product. Tobacco and alcohol are two of the big ones. When I first started smoking in the 90's a pack of cigarettes was around $2. Now they are around $6. In New York they go for around $11 because of the "health" taxes on them.

Here in Oregon we are one of the states with the highest alcohol taxes ($23/gallon).
So not go after products that can k*ll you just take more money out of your pocket? Even the ones who don't even partake

With that said, are you aware of how the increased tax influenced the consuming patterns of those persons under the program in comparison to individuals not within the program (ie. neighboring states)?

You canít relate to a fu*king billionaire. Stop peddling that stupid talking point to people. None of us can. The only reason you believe heís viable candidate because heís rich and probably can relate when he canít.......The same BS that got Trump elected....

So you believe being racist is characteristic that a presidential candidate should have the with people? Is that the relatable sh*t youíre talking about?

What makes you say Bloomberg is serious and Andrew Yang isn't? Bloomberg is just another billionaire that has no idea of the struggles your average American family goes through each day.

Andrew Yang has great policies. The guy just raised $750,000 in 24 hours to meet a $2M goal (over one week total). Many Libertarian & Republican voters have voiced their full support for Andrew Yang over Trump....some have gone on to say Yang is the only Democrat they would ever considering voting for over Trump in 2020. The guy is focused on the issues we need to be focused on right now.

Medicare for All
Reduce Mass Incarceration
Decriminalize Opioids (and provide treatment, not jail time)
Reducing Student Loan Burden (10x10 Student Loan Plan)
Legalize Marijuana
Paid Family Leave
Fudning HBCU's
Ranked Choice Voting
Data as a Property Right
Freedom Divident / UBI ($1,000 per moth to all citizens 18 & older)
Free Financial Counseling for All
Increased a*sistance for Single Parents
Make Election Day a Holiday

The mainstream media want you to ignore him, they literally leave him out of graphics showing poll numbers & keep him quite during the debate....you should really take your time and research him. The guy is inspiring, plain & simple. He speaks common sense and has the data to back it up.

#HumanityFirst --- Not Left, Not Right, Forward.
What's crazy is I think Yang will be President eventually. Not because of his policies , which i think are great...but his affiliation. He was recruited by the same organization when he was young that Mark Zuckerberg and others were recruited to when they were young. Hate to say it , but I feel like he is an elite plant.
