A: It's very much not (followed by fake laugh) It's capitalism where income doesn't start at zero.

Actually, its theft, followed by massive redistribution of stolen goods.

In other words, yes, it's socialism.

Medicare and SS are socialism and redistribution too.

At least with this idea everyone is treated the same and its not just socialism for some.

This one proposes to tax corporate through a VAT and give it to everyone else, including the CEO of that corporate. So it has been said, same as Alaska does with oil money for the residence of Alaska.

I concur as a conservative, that Yang makes some interesting points about automation--but it stops there, but there is NO WAY that he should be President. He's more cerebral and logical than the Dem front runners--but I think he'd be horrible negotiating with Europe, Xi in China, The Ayatollah, the Saudis and North Korea.

If the homeless person is able to rent an apartment and it didn't cost you anything, would that not help?

That is why he will never be POTUS or any one like him ... the better they are at those two attributes the more people will try and find something wrong with that person ... oh wait.

Besides ... we really don't decide elections any way, so the point is all mute, imo.
