#HologramTHREAD: Sham #DemDebate

These debates are not about informing voters. They are about creating drama for the networks. Professional chattering personalities create "stumper" moments for other chattering personalities to chatter about.

#YangGang #ISupportYang

Examples:
"Let's ask Andrew Yang two questions on foreign policy."

This is fair: He's running for President, after all, and would be Commander-in-Chief and set policy for the State Department.

"Let's ask Joe Biden about deportation under Obama."
"Let's ask Joe Biden about Iraq."
"Let's ask Sanders about Venezuela and socialism."

See the pattern, yet?

Ask yourself this: Did you learn anything about the stances of these candidates on health care, tonight? Medicare for All?

I didn't. Pretty much the same stuff we heard the last two debates, right?
Now ask yourself another question: What words were MISSING from the debate?

I'll go first.

Recession
Automation
Artificial Intelligence
Quantum Computing
Cryptocurrency
Deficit, Debt, or Budget
Rising suicides
GDP
Ranked Choice Voting
Thorium
Poverty
Data Rights
Deepfakes
Because frankly, I want to hear what people NOT named Andrew Yang (people that also want to be President) think about THOSE issues.

I don't give a rat's ass how they feel about "resiliency," but thanks for asking, @ABC. Now we know! That's a thing we know, now. Perfect. 🙄
Do I blame @ABC for this? Oddly ... no.

This is the inertia of our political system, and it is hard to steer. We passengers on this Titanic sense it heading for an iceberg, but we are frustratingly powerless to lean out enough on our own to avoid collisions.
Sadly, collisions make news. Collisions make causes, and politicians run on causes. The whole system is set up to run straight into icebergs, not avoid them.

This is why the whole establishment misunderstands @AndrewYang.

He is the only one afraid we might actually sink ...
