Another democrat that's promising caviar schemes on a empty check book. A postal banking system,universal healthcare, increasing public funding on 'art and local newspapers. Creating the VAT tax to make sure them evil rich people pay their fair share!

Of course he ignores the medicare capital gains surtax, the alternative minimum tax on top of their already existing tax rate, but why let a little thing like details get in the way of promising the moon.



Yang supports universal health care, the reform of the student loan industry, the implementation of a postal banking system, and free financial counseling for Americans. He wants to eliminate robo-calling and to increase public funding for the arts and local newspapers. He would like to protect children from smartphones and to pay college athletes. He argues — rightly — that the best way to ensure that wealthy people pay their fair share of taxes is to impose a VAT, something that would also help to restructure the economy so that it is not organized around endless wasteful consumption of cheap goods.


This guy is just as dangerous as Che Cortez.


Really effing Dangerous!

The Freedom Dividend!!!!

So far 208 Democrats have filed to run for president.

ATS is going to need bigger servers.

There can be only one.

I retort.

You decide.

God save the Republic if Trump loses.

Because if Demcrats win.

We're screwed, and that's a fact Jack.

I saw that story linked on Drudge last night.
He’s got a lot of ideas on his policy page. Some very questionable, some seem reachable.
When you go to all the other candidates policy pages, there is a picture of Trump with the caption “Orange man bad”

I give him credit for at least thinking out of the box. He seems fairly level headed in the interviews I've seen. He doesn't have that screechy, social justice warrior personality like some of the candidates.... like he could actually have an intelligent debate even if I disagree with some of his policy positions.

I don't know all the things he is touting. I've just seen him in interviews talking about UBI. I'd never vote for the guy as he already has come off too left for me, so don't have a lot of reason to dig into him too deep. I just said he seemed fairly level headed from my first impressions. Almost like he'd change his opinion on something if given the right data / logic vs the emotional screeching that typically comes from the left.

The only candidate on the left that I think are decent are Howard Schultz. Tulsi Gabbard seems ok. The rest of them seem like nut jobs imho.

It's funny how you guys create your own bogeymen.

You're the only person I know talking about Yang like he's a legitimate candidate.

What I think of Andrew Yang and his UBI scheme


Andrew Yang's answer to automation is the effective obliteration of governing by consent. The UBI, which is what he's after, will ensure that people remain a ward of the state for eternity. It will be done at the expense of industries that it will be designed to destroy, it will be devastatingly inflationary, and in very short order, controlled by a central global government structure.

Anyone can make free money from the government sound good. But Mr. "I do math so I'm smarter than everyone else" isn't nearly as smart as he thinks he is.


I've been speaking to this for a while now. Yang cannot defend his ideas, he couldn't even answer Joe Rogan's simple questions... Let alone MY questions. Such as, how does 1000 dollars per month doled out in ever-devaluing dollars going to help anyone at all? How are you going to continue to fund the UBI when the tax pools for your idea are going to disappear? How is your UBI going to keep up with the rate of transaction activities that will need to be sustained in an economy that CAN pay a UBI, automation or no?

The UBI people tout the scheme as a system of the future, IGNORING the fact that the UBI is an OLD idea based on the realities of the Industrial Revolution, like socialism and communism. The automated economics of the future cannot be allowed to be hamstrung by guaranteed non-participation in the economy--enabled by government decree via a payoff.

And that's all this is folks. A payoff for the left-behind plebs while the elite (like he wants to be) get to enjoy the fruits of the robot slaves.

So what is your answer for the coming automation revolution?

I agree that a UBI is less than ideal. But short of transitioning to a currency-less society I haven't really seen a better solution.

Deal with it.

It ain't going to be fixed by increasing the power of the state, creating tax upon tax ,and robbing from the rich and giving to the poor.

All so they can go out and buy more stuff.

Oy, Neoligarchy! Two questions:
how screwed would you be exactly and where is this fact you are getting at?

It's entertaining to see you twisting your pants though, gotta give you that.

The Vat increases the price of goods across the boards.

The financial transaction tax /Capital gains tax SCREWS middle class pensions,IRA's 401ks.

Then there's the 'prosperity Grants'.

There isn't enough money to pay for the snip he wants, and it has a destructive compounding effect destroy everything, and everyone.

How about a society that makes the communication of value an automated feature of an IoT economy that EVERYONE gets to be a part of? What about self-ownership laws and the technologies existing today that can make these things happen?

We don't need a UBI.

There is no dealing with it.

Currently we're told that Millennials that can't get an office job should've got a trade job. Sadly both of these will be replaced by robots in the near future.

The response to that is to learn programming and robotic maintenance. But there will only be so many of those jobs to go around.

Maybe a billion can find jobs worldwide, but what does the other six or seven billion do?

If we get to that point you better believe governments will fall and the Haves will pray for the French Revolution.
