Mark Sanford, 2020 Presidential Candidate vying for the Republican Party Nomination, sat down with 71 Republic’s CEO Matthew Geiger on a campaign stop in Columbus, Ohio, to discuss a variety of economic and foreign policy issues. Sanford is the former Governor of South Carolina, as well as a former United States Representative. A transcript and audio file of the interview is available below.
The Democrats laid another egg last night. So did CNN and the New York Times. In fact, anyone who watched that charade should feel like they lost. If nothing else, that’s more than three-and-a-half hours of life you will never get back.
This was not a debate; it was milquetoast political theater. It was the exact sort of thing that placates the type of people who don’t win you Ohio, or Pennsylvania, or Michigan. A show. A play. A poorly organized rant against all the freedoms and prosperity that 300 years of internal struggle has chiseled into the sloppy frame that is America. The way the Democrats speak about the country, it’s easy to recognize just how much they loathe and detest its very existence.
Reporter Sam Stein claims on Twitter to have had a phone conversation with presidential candidate Andrew Yang’s campaign manager. Stein claims that the manager told him “Yang will be doing something no presidential candidate has ever done before in history.” Neither Stein nor the Yang campaign have given further details. The tweet has left many in awe of Yang’s plans for tomorrow’s debate. Andrew Yang will be on stage with nine other candidates also competing for the limelight.
If Andrew Yang becomes president of the United States, you’re going to have to sell your “legacy-gas” car back to the government.
Andrew Yang Will “Buyback” Your Car
Speaking at CNN’s Climate town hall on Wednesday night, Andrew Yang was blunt. The independent-minded Yang suggested the government will not only buy citizens’ cars but that they will also fund an ‘upgrade.’
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.
