Should Yang be the next president?
My goal is too prove that he is the best candidate for the job. Con's goal is to prove that there are other candidates that are better suited for the job.
- UBI - How does it impact the economy?
- How does it impact the society?
As I think it should be clear, Yang is not a politician. Biden is. With having Trump we realize after blunder after blunder that politicians like Obama are the way to go. Obama passed the ACA whereas Trump can’t even deliver on a main talking point of building the wall. Biden has been a politician since 1966 but Yang hasn’t even done anything in the political sphere. For Biden to be more effective than Yang he would’ve need only pass 1 policy since Yang has passed no policies. I’ll go out on a limb to say he has.
If we look at Iowa polls, Biden is doing better. If we look at national polls, Biden is doing better. If we look at head to head states we see Yang isn’t even worth mentioning for how little support he has.
Let's be real the only reason why Yang is even mentioned on anything is because of his UBI. Biden has a really lengthy track record and was working with Obama who was a really popular candidate.
but a great one. Many studies have confirmed this 
and a version of it even exists already in Alaska 
Yang is not a politician. Biden is. [..] Yang hasn’t even done anything in the political sphere
Trump can’t even deliver on a main talking point of building the wall
Has a higher chance of winning
[Yang relies] on one policy [..] Yang is even mentioned on anything is because of his UBI
Biden has a really lengthy track record
If we look at the most recent debate
Biden supports an improved ACA
Looking at the link they claim $1,000 allows you to live above the poverty but looking at the poverty line, that the link linked, you would need $140 more to be level with it
Looking at the link we realize everyone [receives] 1,000 per year. Meaning it is different to Yang's proposal.
Unfair to compare two different UBI's
He would be giving people who are already comfortable $12,000
I wasn't comparing them. I said that "a version of it" could be found in Alaska. That implies that the basic concept of a UBI could indeed work.
Biden hasn't done anything in the economic sphere.
He can see the real threats of the economy, and how to fix them. Politicians lack this skill however.
But we're not talking about who's gonna win.
But is that necessarily a good thing ?
It's not Yang's fault that he didn't get enough speaking time,
And that is better than Yang's plan of Medicare for All in what ways?
More evidence in needed.
A site doesn't necessarily reflect all of my exact beliefs.
I would say attacking a link from a link that I linked is a little off-track...
If he wasn't comparing them what was point? My view of this would be he brought up a point that is meaningless.
As the president of the United States you do not need to be well versed in the economy. If Joe really cared that he was bad with the economy, he can hire an economics adviser.
Given my opponent didn't deny Biden has a higher chance of winning means he doesn't disagree with Biden should be elected because he has a higher chance of winning as seen by the polls.
It is completely unfair bar to set, if what I think you are implying, that politicians need to perfect.
Why didn't he wait 4 years to gain some political presence instead decide to start his political career as a candidate for the presidency?
Obamacare has happened once so it is more likely to happen again.
No evidence that his proposal will help people
[Links are] a complete failure on your part
Remembering 2 people's names is the bare minimum [to] reach the plural that is humans
not once has [Squid] stated why it is the case
so it proves that the concept of a UBI does indeed work.
Yet you have not provided any advice to why a president should be educated in the field of economics.
Also, what stops Yang from hiring a political advisor?
not the one most likely to win.
My point is, give me 10 things Yang has done that is equally as bad or worse than Biden did.
What about this one? I linked that 15,000 character in depth report on UBI in the first round.
If I use a piece of information on a site, I will link it.
Not only two, dozens of people Yang has socialized with before. And by the way, find me an example of a politician that actually goes to small communities or individuals, and sits down and actually has a real talk with them, the way Yang does.
- Politically effective like I mentioned one more policy is more than what Yang has ever done.
- Polls are right and Biden is willing. I support democracy therefore Biden should be elected.
- UBI isn't his claim to fame nor is talking to a few dozen people, it is him being a politician since 1966.
- Links stuff without demonstrating it supports what he says
- Blames me when I actually critique a link he gives
- Character limit is too short
- Gish gallops me with a link filled with 10 points
- There is more but no space
