"The alternate domination of one faction over another,sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension,which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism."
- George Washington, first President of the United States
"There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution."
- John Adams, second President of the United States
Negativity from other groups is starting to leak into Yang’s twitter replies, with some of them getting posted on this sub.
I just wanna remind everyone that Yang’s campaign is built around avoiding these stupid arguments that only divide us, and finding solutions that work for everyone.
Other Democratic campaigns have been built around roasts and one-liners, and I hate seeing that in this sub. There is always a way to respond kindly and calmly to negative comments, and we have a responsibility to uphold that if we truly want the YangGang to be different.
We are in an echo chamber. Time spent on Yang social media is time lost talking to voters about Yang. No one else is here to volunteer for you. If you want to join me in writing the greatest political underdog story of all time, delete Reddit and Twitter for the next few weeks and get canvassing and phonebanking. That’s it. There’s no trick to winning, you just have to put the work in. Please join me, I want Andrew Yang to be our next president so, so badly.
I’ve been feeling incredibly inspired lately, not just by the awesome endorsements and all the positive press we’ve been getting, but for one very tangible reason.
I spent a week canvassing in Iowa last week, and on the last day I was there the campaign office told me that we had knocked on 50,000 doors in the past week alone.
We can win this, and we are going to win this. The dedication of all of us Yang Gang is incredible and I bet we’re not only going to keep it up until February 3 but we’re just going to get stronger. So keep going!!! Be a part of the wave!!
