  1. I agree, but I would say there are some in politics who, though not disavowing it, are able to steer clear of and move people away from this type of thinking. I would say that when these growing political divides are combined with the growing strife in the lower and middle classes through automation and the opioid epidemic, you have a not-so-good looking future awaiting our very democracy. That's why despite disagreeing in many areas with the likes of Romney, Weld, and Phil Scott, I find it necessary to support their voices as a means to fight against these growing divides, to the point of me donating to Weld in the past.
  2. I agree, and I do find myself in a certain subsection of the movement(More Libertarian/Yang-esque style Progressivism). What I am mainly getting at is the lack of nuance when pursuing goals, as well as the binary thinking I've found in many circles of, "it's us versus the corporatists!", which usually only isolates you from any means of attaining your goals.
  3. We may benefit from it, yes, but we aren't asking for it. Instead we reduce ourselves to tribalism and hate. That's why I support Sanders from a distance, I've seen far too much vitriol and hate come out of some of the progressive movement.
  4. Being a New England Republican may help his case if a primary challenger arrives, being in Vermont, but there will be no mercy shown to his career by the party.
  5. Likely, and that's why I do think NYC mayor is more likely for his career. Though the senate race you described would make an interesting test of the wings of the Democratic party, with many of Yang's policies mixing into both wings of the party.
  6. I voted Yang mainly because by 2024 he will likely be much more in the limelight, either through taking a senate seat or taking the seat of mayor of New York City. I feel specifically as mayor of NYC he could trial run many of his policies, as well as solving many of the aching issues in the city. The Democratic party will also be wounded, which may allow Yang to unite parts of the moderate wing and progressive wing under his banner. AOC would be too ideologically isolated by the moderate faction and media to pull of too much, and Warren has ruined much of her support among progressives in the course of her run.
  7. I think his eagerness to drop out either shows 2 things 1. He was selfless enough to accept his campaign could not win. Or, 2. He was courted by a separate campaign for a cabinet position, in return for a UBI endorsement. If it's one, I see him looking at the senate in the future.
  8. As a long time lurker on this forum, I will say that I will be making many of my bets based off of his.
  9. Yang dropping out is by far the least pleasant thing tonight, but he did set up a future political career. Warren failing this hard is something I did not expect, but it looks like the race is turning into Pete vs Bernie, with the Klob threatening to split the moderate vote.
  10. I would support Bernie only because he is unlikely to receive the nom, but can still make progressive discontent heard. Though Yang may be ramping up for 2024 already. https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/andrew-yang-democrat-basic-income-presidential-candidate-new-hampshire-primary-2024-949667/
