    I wanna like him, he seems rational and intelligent in interviews. I wish he would drop that UBI cheese ball thing and highlight some more realistic initiatives.

    I think he’s hamstrung by running as a Democrat he’s forced to kind of tiptoe around a lot of the sacred cows the party hold so dear.

    He should switch to R

    I'll vote for him just because he's Asian and he went on both JRE and Ryan Higa's podcast.

      Ok..I don't see how that's related to my point that Republican paryh from the 19th century is no longer comparable to present day republican party..

      I don't even disagree that a lot of Latinos will vote R if it weren't for immigration. Most immigrants come from backward third world countries with much more conservative views than modern Western countries. I'm speaking as a second generation immigrant with parents who gladly took advantage of humane immigration policies yet are totally opposed to helping out refugees, women, minorities, and LGTBQ communities.

      What can you do? It's hard for people to change and there will be always be selfish people. But the nice thing about America is that children of most immigrant groups, with a few exceptions, tend to assimilate quickly.

      America’s been so generous is to the point that it’s starting to tear the country apart. you don’t like what Mexico? Bad news we’re heading in that direction

      I don't feel like I'm making this country worse. I pay my taxes, went to a good school, make well into six figures, give to charities. People like you have been complaining about immigrants for centuries. Where are all those people worried about the Catholics, Irish, Italians, Eastern European?

      No one is advocating for open borders. We can be generous and reasonable at the same time. America can easily accommodate an immigrant population of ~10%.

      Of course not, you’re on blind, you’re a tech worker, you could’ve immigrated here on your merits.

      The issue is if the majority of people arriving consume more resources than they contribute it’s a net drain.

      It isn’t complicated, it’s arithmetic.

      Can you show me solid numbers that majority of people consume more than they contribute?

      How can American even function if immigrants in general consume more than they contribute? Everyone is an immigrant or descended from one

    He might be rational but lacks leader-like traits. If he were running for a high school president, I would vote him for a lesser role, like a secretary

    I have recently explored his UBI idea in more depth and it seems like a promising solution to combat both automation and outsourcing

    He doesn’t look like a president. Not even a CEO.

  • He should be president...of the Bay Area.

    Anywhere else he wouldn’t win. 🤷‍♂️

      He’d be a shitty president but he would be 10x better versus every single politician in the bay. For such so-called smart people we’ve got some serious pathetic politicians here

    Electing Yang will increase your TC by 12k.

      Haha only if your current TC is less than 50 K.

    I like him but his UBI idea is unrealistic. It would cost 4 trillion per year, which is greater than all federal revenue and 1/5 of the gdp. It's a shame because I really like all his other policies. He even supports advanced nuclear.

    He’s a moron who will never get elected. The less anybody thinks about him the better.

    UBI does not work with the same social security net intact. It's free drug money, because medical attention is still free.

    Yet he makes jokes about Asians in the debates. Such a hypocrite.
    Also his ideas are ducking stupid, and if a foreign country wanted to plant someone to ruin our economy, this is the best way to do it.
    He should go and run his failed ventures.

  • Some of his policys are.not that realistic. UBI would burn money, and give green cards to all foreign students would certainly allow those less capable but with money gain citizenship.

    Btw he said that he don't like Trade War, wanna know how would he wreck China so CCP cannot eat the world. Also I am really wondering as a Tainwanese what is his altitude towards Taiwan policies. Shall the PLA invade his.homeland, would he allow the US military to assist Taiwan?
