FOX NEWS: Andrew Yang quits Democratic Party, calls it 'the right thing' to do


Former presidential candidate Andrew Yang has officially quit the Democratic Party, calling it "the right thing" to do.

Yang announced he will become an independent in a blog post published Monday on his website and described doing so as a "strangely emotional experience."

Yang recalled his campaigning as a Democrat and for President Biden, as well as the Democrat friends he made around the country and on stage as a primary opponent, noting he has been a Democrat his "entire adult life."

"And yet, I’m confident that no longer being a Democrat is the right thing," Yang wrote.

Since I had my own change of heart this year, I figured I should share this article.

Yang was very right when he says..



Simultaneously, Yang wrote that the country "is stuck in part because polarization is getting worse than ever."


There is literally no mutual ground anymore.

There should be a complete reset to at least get some level of bi-partisanship going.

I applaud the move, he won't get any more votes ever again, but I agree it is the right move. Eventually enough "moderate" ones will leave the party and all that will be left are the ones that the majority of the country consider to be so far out of touch it's not even funny.

I think it’s to late. The Democrats already got away with rigging the elections. So from here on out it’s most likely Iron fist rule. Do as we say not as we do or you will pay the price type stuff. Hell it’s already happening, which is why they don’t seem to care showing how corrupt they are.

when half of us believe:

I think it’s to late. The Democrats already got away with rigging the elections.


and the other half mock, ridicule, and belittle anyone who believes that, we won't see any middle ground. Sadly, the fix was the audits, the one's the left works overtime to discredit.

Prove the system still works, or prove the system is broken. That should be universal, unless you know it's broken and are OK with it, since it's beneficial to you. (that's how it looks from over here)

Knowing that, we aren't going anywhere.

Except for one letter, I agree with you completely. That one letter is the letter ''S''. You say''when enough moderate ones leave the party.'' To that I need to add an ''S'', making it ''when enough moderate ones leave the party's . Well actually make that dropping off a y and adding ies . Humm, not as simple as I first thought.Oh well.

Yang and I diverge on viewpoints on a few specifics of policy and such. But as a human, I have an immense respect for him. I may have been willing to vote for him if he'd have been nominated instead of Biden. Were we to have a Gabbard/Yang ticket, id likely vote for them. I think we have 2 branches of government able to protect the 2nd, so thats not even my consideration.

I want him to keep making sense to people, and if he isn't to at least continue to be a calm, polite, inquisitive face that tries to bridge this ridiculous divide our nation has.

Tulsi Gabbard and Yang would have been a good ticket, but the dems don't want anyone with the least bit of moral fiber.
Neither of them stood a chance.

You can't be intelligent and honest and also call yourself a democrat.

Maybe he's finally sick and tired of getting hen pecked by AOC 😄

I like Tulsi, it felt like the media was not too interested in her being a candidate.

Sorry, but this situation is 100% the fault of your MSM in bed with the democrats since the very second Trump came down the escalator - go back and smell the coffee, its patently evident to anyone who bothered to watch the sh!t flinging - culminating in Trump being banned from social media and Google admiting in interfering in the election to 'protect' democracy.

100% the fault of the MSM and democrats (along with FBI and CIA/NSA) and Soros.

The China virus was unleashed on the planet as a man made bioweapon because Trumpism was spreading like wild fire and the globalists couldn't have any of that, ergo, punish everyone and blame Trump and his unvaccinated supporters (another lie).

The media became uninterested in Tulsi the very moment Hillary called her a Russian asset - coincidence? I think not.

I repeat, this situation is 100% the fault of the MSM and democrats - they could not stand a nationalist being on the ticket - globalism or die.

I wish politicians would change sides the way pro wrestlers do.

Stand behind your allies while they make a speech, applauding all the way. When they finish, hit them in the back with a steel chair then rip off your shirt showing the other side's logo underneath.

BINGO! They built the infrastructure to rig elections, and when it was legally and rightfully challenged, no one could even get the evidence into the public eye.

Why would they ever let us vote them out again? Its a cabal. Once they are in, they are in.

Now they are trying to get the people they think disagree with them in the military and police to leave their positions by putting anti personal freedom mandates in place.

Big data analytics made all this possible.

He's just disatisfied with having no say in the Democratic Party, and wants to create his own party to try and draw in moderates and other Democrats who aren't hellbent on burning everything down.

Chicago style politics went National, it is my belief that Obama is pulling Biden’s strings.

Citation really needed on this one.

Andrew Yang is about the only one in that party beside Gabbard who talks to everyone like they are humans. I've seen him sit and listen to people he didn't agree with, then change his views afterwards.

He is a good one. We need more like him.

I dont agree with his living wage ideas, but youre right hes not the worst...

www.businessinsider.com...

This minor example is to say that he called Trump fat(fine by me) just shows the hypocrisy of image shaming.

He was running for office and Hamilton and Adams said alot worse.
