    we dont disagree, i dont like democrats either, so there is no real argument to have. i am only claiming that i find yang likable, and that i think he would be trouble in the general election.

    You might be right concerning the general election but I can’t see him getting close to the nomination as out of the D leading edge as he is. As you say he’s a different kind of donkey.

    This my first interaction with you so good to hear you are not a crazy leftist, wasnt sure my first read on you. My point is Yang may very well be a nice guy but if he is why is he in the Democratic party? This is not the democrats from the 50's and early sixties I remember they are bat shit crazy now. I think even Sigmund Freud would label them...... freaking kooky!

    because thats the only place he can get press and notoriety. there wont be a republican primary, and he doesnt have the money to be michael bloomberg or ross perot and be independent. the dems give him a stage.

    i think you will agree with me about this: the democrats pander to folks, unsophisticated folks with policies they know to be destructive, but politically popular.

    "the demagogue is a man who preaches doctrines he knows to be false, to people he knows to be idiots" - paraphrasing Mencken

    thats why i used the example of minimum wage laws. we know they are destructive. basically every useful economist knows that price controls (minimum wage is a labor price control) are always destructive. but regular joes dont understand that. they just hear "more money for poor people". so dems use the lack of sophsiticationof the normal person against him, and wont say that min wage hurts the people its is claiming to protect.

    but yang is for UBI, not min wage. i think this is him being sincere about solutions, not just being electable. i like this chinaman
