Can y’all give a tl;dr re: 2020 candidates? All I know: Buttigieg&Pocahontas are turf warring over insecure overachievers, Yang thinks the US = YCombinator, Bloomberg something, Biden&Sanders are old

Lmaooo your descriptions 😂😂 aight so I’ll do Yang. So Yang’s flagship program is the freedom dividend. Essentially UBI (1k a month) that is funded through a value added tax. Think how Alaska gives residents money that they get via oil. He has the most policies out of all the candidates, and he has a very strong grasp on root issues and economics. Everything he talks about is supported by research. One of his slogans is MATH (make America think harder). So he is all about using data, which separates him from other candidates. Even his freedom dividend is supported by Greg Mankiw who literally wrote my college Econ textbook, and was economic advisor to several Republicans including GW Bush. Another thing he has is “Not right, not left, but forward” essentially trying to bridge the gap between the right and left. A look through any YouTube comment section will qualify this. Polls also have him flipping 10% of trump supporters. By the numbers he CAN beak trump. He also wants to put more of an emphasis on “human centered capitalism.” Essentially the economy valuing people rather than just gross and net output. For example, house wives contribute greatly to life as a whole but are not valued in the economy. Anyone who has taken Econ knows that GDP isn’t the best way to measure the economy. He’s pushing for a change...for me the fact that he even understands that issue is so refreshing and demonstrates his understanding of how things work. I encourage you to watch a few videos if you have the time. He’s legit and understands the problems of today. He doesn’t play into attacks or party politics. He’s someone I feel like the whole country can get behind.

You forgot one very important candidate... He’s a homunculus whose brain is set to “grievance;” is incapable of any rational thought longer than a few words strung together; defaults to criminality and lying; and has made the US a laughingstock among enemies and allies alike. Need any more hints?
