Making blatantly ridiculous "arguments" only makes you seem ridiculous. 0% of rational adults think that, so why parrot such a ridiculous thing. If you have a rational thought in your head, try using that as an argument instead.

Well as long as we apply similar tiers to having free speech too its all good, no?

Tier 1, you can state non-controversial opinions in public without government penalty
Tier 2, after you successfully prove you can be trusted with tier 1, you are granted rights to government approved social media platforms
Tier 3, after 2 years of good behavior at tier 2 you can now express your controversial opinions about the government as long as they are done respectfully

Yang back thorium reactors in energy policy a far more ranging look than the others ....many people have not even heard of such things...the way politics works many things are "grandfathered in"....


its amusing to look at the 2nd amendment people who would denounce a 10,000 gun personal limit as an infringement

Im just curious, in your opinion, how effective or successful would the people be, if they ever needed to remove govt from power by force? (considering all the limitations on what weapons people can legally own)

in my opinion the whole point of WACO was to show the foolishness of such an uprising..the question is how many if any American troops would follow orders and shoot the US citizenry....


now we all know a minority of a handful of corporations control mass media..what would be interesting to expose would be plans for such an event..as the government/armed forces have plans for everything however unexpected..lol


my guess is a significant number of troops would also revolt...but then problems with food distribution etc..etc..come into play...talk about fake news!! would love to see/hear the government pre=planned "news" to see how the takeover is percieved

It doesn't really matter what proposal is used, gun owners will never agree to anything that even remotely limits their ability to get a gun as soon as possible. And they won't attempt to find any type of middle ground.

AND this is where the rub is.


So many gun toting Trump Thumpers are ANTI government. Yet they still pay taxes? hmm....


You guys can shoot holes in the plan but like most plans it is subject for modification. I applaud Andrew Yang for taking the time to put it together and open up the conversation. Like most of his plans it's very well thought out.

Interesting, how do you check that ? Ah, never mind, I don't think I want to know.

Why do the anti gun crowd always go with a sexual thing ? It's really creepy.
