Though very much a peripheral candidate, Andrew Yang has garnered a great deal of attention of late. He recently qualified for the first presidential debate and is famous for his Universal Basic Income proposal. Though his website hosts an impressive swath of policies, many simply know him as the UBI guy. His concerns about automation in the near future come really close to setting him apart from the pack. But his solution? Absolutely gutting the crypto industry, setting back what the world needs most in an increasingly global society. That’s right: he’s after your Bitcoin.
The dream of many students is to spark up in school. A recent Washington state law just turned that dream into a reality. In Washington, a student who holds a medical marijuana card can now use marijuana products on school grounds.
2020 Democratic Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang has a unique following among the right. Yang has become particularly popular among more fringe parts, such as the Alt-Right. Mother Jones contends that the reason for this is Yang’s willingness to talk about topics other candidates largely avoid. Moreover, Yang has been on several podcasts and programming popular among the right, including the Joe Rogan Experience, the Ben Shapiro Show, and Fox News. But many of his ideas contradict the very principles that these people claim to hold.
The United States Federal Government and Pentagon are still funding terrorists. The U.S. has a long history of terrorist financing, but it has gone on for so long that it has just become an accepted fact in the American unconscious.

As the 2020 presidential election approaches, there is much talk about the boisterous and ever-growing democratic field. However, the 3rd largest American political party, the Libertarian Party, also has a primary ahead of them.
In 2016, former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson was able to garner small doses of media attention. However, the 2020 libertarian candidates seem rather unknown. Information on the candidates is limited, but outlets like Chris Spangle’s “We Are Libertarians Network” have done their best through their presidential candidate and debate series hosted by Hodey Johns.
Note that this is not a conclusive list of all candidates. Rather this is a short description of the most prominent figures who have announced their campaigns.
