I understand why #YangGang and #Bernie supporters don't get along.

1) @AndrewYang trusts people, whereas @BernieSanders trusts institutions. This is vital. Hence the #FreedomDividend puts $$$ directly into people's hands but #FJG/$15 makes people go through institutions for $$$
2) Yang is inherently capitalist, Sanders is inherently socialist. People who support Sanders want to totally upend the system. Us #YangGang want capitalism to work for us.
3) Yang has spent his entire career in the private sector, as opposed to Bernie who only has (extensive) govt experience. So Yang looks at #FightFor15 and thinks "This can hurt small businesses" and Sanders discovers that its hard to run a business. cnbc.com/2019/07/25/for…
4) And yeah, Yang is younger and Bernie is older. I do think this matters in that younger people have different career and life expectations than previous generations: how many under 40 will work for one company for 35 years and retire from there? How many under 40 will retire?
I think the animosity between Bern and Yang supporters will continue. Bern has seen his 2016 market split among Warren (women) Tulsi (anti-war) and Yang (tech/libertarians/capitalists) and his supporters know it. They won't be happy as #YangGang keeps growing. #Yang2020
