That explains alot about alot of what you say.
Not at all. The presidential election is a popularity contest. Nerds don't usually dominate popularity contest. It's not a put down on Yang.

Too nerdy for the population of America, is a better description. We would probably do better as a nation if our politicians were elected due to intelligence, rather than being a well spoken slick politicians.

I think the selection process could use a complete makeover. Also would not hurt to make sure the voters have half a brain.

Andrew Yang was on Bill Maher last Friday. Very smart, very successful and very good communicator. But he has never held elected office. Personally, my favorite is Governor Hickenlooper, but he doesn’t seem to be doing well so far. But truth be told, they could dig up Captain Kangaroo’s bones, slap a blue hat on him, and i would vote for him over president caddyshack.

Im rooting for hickenlooper as well. I think his folksyness would play well in places the dems need to win back. I like his business background, could lead to some clever barbs like "self made not daddy paid" or some such jazz. Seems fairly pragmatic which i really like.

Not much of a showman or public speaker though so doubtful he will make it very far. My ideal candidate would be way out there to the classic left (not so much the current liberal/left ideas) but that aint gonna happen.

Funny, but i quickly rebuffed the UBI idea as well. Then i opened my mind and listened to him, and did a fair amount of reading regarding the pros and cons, and now i support the idea. It would not be as expensive as you think, and the positive, long term economic benefit would be substantial. Think of it as a trump tariff farmer subsidy welfare payment that everybody gets.

My trouble isn't the cost, my issue is that it's a back door way to destroy social services. Why do you think Libertarians love it?

Step 1: Introduce UBI

Step 2: Eliminate all other social services

Step 3: Reduce UBI

Step 4: Eliminate UBI

Step 5: More money for the 0.1%!
