Andrew Yang was the candidate for folks who wanted off this ride.
Sensing that we are on the precipice of an awful period of American history, I was content to sit back and collect $1,000 a month, to watch the country depolarize and settle down a bit and to put aside partisan differences to tackle a major looming challenge like mass unemployment caused by the displacement of the workforce by automation. I still think it is great that he has brought the 4th Industrial Revolution to public consciousness. I assumed he would compete with Joe Biden for moderate voters.
Yang’s problem is that the rest of the Democratic field is stampeding to the Far Left. Blompf has gone from being a racist to a white supremacist. The Democrats have gone from wanting to pass the DREAM Act and comprehensive immigration reform to giving free health care to illegal aliens and decriminalizing the border. Kamala Harris and Corey Booker are supporting reparations for slavery. Elizabeth Warren has come out and accused Officer Darren Wilson of murdering Michael Brown.
The Democratic Party is racing to the fringe. Andrew Yang has decided for whatever reason to follow the party off the cliff. The danger here is that millions of Republican voters who were skeptical of Blompf in 2016 have gotten used to him and like him now. We pretty much know what to expect from a Blompf second term now. The odds that Blompf will be reelected seem to be increasing daily because for all his incompetence at governing he will likely spend the next four years just sending out increasingly senile Boomer tweets about the WITCH HUNT and PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT.
