Demonizes mental health? Care to explain? Andrew Yang has a special needs son and speaks on the the issues of mental health more than any one running ---

And you want to address homes & food? Did you decide to skip over the Freedom Dividend of $1,000 a month? A benefit that would stack with housing a*sistance, Social Security Disability Insurance, Social Security retirement & VA Disablity.

Curious to hear your opinion on these policies?

his site is down for me, i should've typed "demonizes mental disorders", but on the link i posted, he wants to end veteran suicide which paints these guys as the enemy instead of the wounded, the enemy is how capitalists treat their soldiers, the onus is not on the suicidal, end VA murder would be better

for decades society has stigmatized people in pain, people can't take it anymore then society lines up and trips over each other to get in one last kick by calling them weak, selfish and cowards, no one has a solution, they just parrot along with society's largest acceptable form of bullying, meanwhile the suicide rate holds steady and rises

unless he has a cure for the effects of f*ghting capitalist wars, then he should shut his fu*kin mouth, homeless shelters are full of veterans, these people are not living great lives and most people just expect these guys to just suffer instead of offering them a way out which is pure sadism

i'm aware of all this, but i was talking about the MMA plank, it's a huge turnoff to see all the poverty around me and this guy has MMA as a passionate priority, i mean, i guess it's the exact opposite of what i'd want to see from someone that wants my vote

I see what you're trying to say. I have to say it's extreme to say that he's demonizing anyone's mental health. You can literally stop all wars today and you still have tens of thousands of military men & women who still will have to deal with the mental sides effects seeing friends die, taking the lives of others, constantly seeing destruction, regularly being put in life or death situations or dealing with difficulties of "I was supposed to be on that mission" and it would have been me. That's not demonizing them or their health. That's addressing the fact that they'll need help.

That being said, Yang does want to stop getting into foreign affairs, and instead focus our time and money at home...partly by making sure veterans have homes, not homeless shelters. He wants to provide treatment for those struggling with addiction, not toss them in jail. He wants to give every American $1,000 a month so they can eat, so they can have clean clothes on their backs. He wants to offer more to help transition from the military to the civilian world. These are his policies, not what I think.

I have 16 years in service (as a Reservist), but I'm not going to pretend I understand everything our vets are going through...but I've seen and heard a lot, and sometimes vet suicides are not even relevant to war or deployments. I'm not mad if we don't agree, but in my opinion Yang is addressing what needs to be addressed in so many different areas that badly need to be addressed.

well said, i guess it just rubbed me wrong

i think it makes more sense to say something like "let's make sure our veterans get all the help they need whenever they need it" which takes the pressure off of the veterans instead of "end veteran suicide" which makes it seem like the veterans are at fault
