Andrew Yang Lost Me with His Crocodile Tears

Spencer Kellogg | @Spencer_Kellogg

Since the day Andrew Yang announced his outsider campaign for president, I have been a skeptical supporter. In a two-party landscape dominated by career politicians so hardwired that it can be difficult to know if they ever have a genuine thought of their own, Yang seemed sincere about the nature of his political process.

Yang’s radical pitch to give every American $1000 a month and the grassroots support he built online through meme culture and the spontaneous explosion of his YangGang crew signaled a humourous and organic addition that portrayed itself in stark contrast to the rest of the pale and robotic field.

Simply put, I liked Andrew Yang for the same reason I like Williamson, Gravel, Gabbard, and Trump. Each seems unabashedly honest about their positions and speak with a moral and philosophical conviction that is rare in our modern discourse.

Dylan Palmer | @dylanpalmer22

If you’re a fan of Andrew Yang, you probably weren’t a big fan of last night’s debate. Yang had very little speaking time compared to his opponents and received a direct, personal question only once.

As we gear up for the second Democratic debate, one candidate stands out from all the rest. That politician is Andrew Yang. As the establishment Democrats and Republicans go on and on about interventionism, social security, and stimulus packages, Yang is focusing on the pressing issues that afflict many Americans today. As a result, he stands in stark contrast to the cookie-cutter politicians he will share the stage with tonight.

Andrew Yang Wants to Ruin Crypto for You

Ryan Lau | @RyanLau71R

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.

Andrew Yang Shows Principle Is Only Worth $1000 a Month

Peyton Gouzien | @PGouzien

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.
