Why I'm Supporting Andrew Yang for President

- Andrew Yang has actual ideas and solutions. In addition, his answers to many of America's most pressing problems are based on data and research, and simply make sense. A few examples of his common sense policies that resonate with me are ranked choice voting, 18 year term limit for Supreme Court justices, extend daylight savings time all year, and democracy dollars to mitigate the influence of wealthy donors and corporations on our elections.
- Andrew Yang is a unifying force. Andrew Yang doesn't talk explicitly about unity and I've never heard him use the word, but his policies and entire being are all about unity. He doesn't pit the rich against the poor, blue states against red states, college educated against high school educated. He is about treating all Americans the same and making all our lives better.
- Andrew Yang is a decent and trustworthy person. In the short time that I've been aware of his candidacy and listened to him speak, he has already made me a better person and more empathetic towards the plight of people in this country whose jobs have been or soon will be eliminated through automation. If you look at his background, he left corporate law after only practicing for 5 months to become an entrepreneur and started Venture for America in a bid to foster entrepreneurship and bring jobs to cities that were once flourishing and are now struggling.
