  • I know what you're thinking Chris how you gonna go from talking about Danny

  • Cohen to 2020 presidential candidate Andrew yang well that's just how I roll

  • what is up everybody this is Chris from the rewired soul where we talk about the

  • problem but focus on the solution and if you're new to my channel I try to pull

  • different topics going on in the social sphere to try to see what lessons we can

  • learn so the end of that kind of stuff make sure you subscribe and bring that

  • notification bell so it's currently 2019 next year we will be electing a new

  • president something that we should all care about

  • there's the presidential elections I know I have a lot of international

  • viewers as well and if you are international let me know down in the

  • comments like how much do you guys pay attention to the United States

  • presidential election I know during the last one there was a

  • lot of stuff going on I saw a lot of people talking about it on an

  • international level anyways we do need to cut all right like what is it goals

  • of my channel is to kind of just put a spotlight on different things going on

  • like in you know pop culture TV you know music movies but also like the elections

  • like we need to look at like what affects our day-to-day lives now I know

  • a lot of you you know you told me that you have political anxiety a lot of it

  • is based on like you just don't like arguing with people like so let's be

  • cool down in the comments like I just want to make this video about my initial

  • thoughts on Andrew yang so I keep seeing this dude's name pop up him as well as

  • Pete Buddha gag these dudes right and yeah

  • so part of what I try to do I try to I personally try to find candidates that

  • along with my value since that I care about the things that I think are an

  • issue that the United States is facing so I've heard a lot about Andrew yang

  • and a friend was talk to me about it today I was like okay I'll do some

  • research so the first video I watched was an interview with him on the

  • channels of route which is an African American base channel where they talk a

  • lot about issues going on in the African American community so I want to be here

  • what Andrew yang views were on the struggles of the

  • african-american community for those of you who don't know right so as I was

  • watching it my first impression on that video was he was very agreeable he's

  • like oh yeah what boy yeah you know body cams on cops yeah you know like all

  • these things that he was being asked about yeah yeah yeah right okay like

  • it's easy for a presidential candidate just to say yes about everything so

  • something that keeps popping up like YouTube's like pushing it out to me is

  • Andrew yang was just interviewed by ben shapiro

  • so ben shapiro is pretty right-leaning and he's very controversial and

  • everything I'm like okay let's see how Andrew yang handles a conversation with

  • ben shapiro and surprisingly like you can't cool the whole time but seem like

  • they agreed more than they disagreed on on various issues what is interesting to

  • me um I do want to make a video about ben shapiro on his views on universal

  • basic income that is something that andrew yang is really pushing so anyways

  • like my initial thoughts just after these first two interviews with andrew

  • yang that i've seen like what do I agree with what do I disagree with how do I

  • like it as a person from what I can see and all that so like as time goes on

  • I'll learn more about him but these are just kind of my first impression so if

  • you know more about them and you want to educate me feel free to let me know down

  • in the comments below one of the things is is like it seems it seems like it's

  • looks like emotional than other people running which is it's good and bad like

  • one thing that I do enjoy about somebody like Bernie Sanders is like you could

  • really see that passion right now Andrew yang something that I've I picked

  • up on very quickly about Andrew yang is that he talks a lot about things that

  • I'm very passionate about which are mental health as well as the addiction

  • crisis specifically opioids in the United States and as he talks about his

  • views are different social and economic issues a lot of what he says ties back

  • to mental health that's something that I look for that something that I

  • here about because just the the mental healthcare system in the United States

  • sucks but like I look for root causes and things it's something like Andrew

  • yang is really pushing universal basic income but also you know he he wants to

  • do something we're all Americans get an extra thousand dollars every single

  • month and he talks about this and why he wants that and I've done a video in the

  • past about universal basic income and a study that they did up in Canada which

  • I'm kind of surprised about like it's not being brought up something that my

  • beautiful girlfriend mentioned like maybe that you know that study was you

  • know debunk maybe or there was some flaws in it maybe that's why he's not

  • referencing it but anyways there was a study that they did up in a small town

  • in Canada maybe like 20 or 30 years ago let's check that video out on it but

  • Andrew yang also brought up that this is something that they've been doing in

  • Alaska for a long time and Alaska's very white leaning state but they've been

  • doing this but it's a little bit different I believe he said they're

  • getting $1,000 per year where Andrew yang wants to do it a thousand dollars

  • per month but how does this affect like our mental health well when you look at

  • it like and this is something that I'm just trying to teach everybody right

  • like when you look at it you know the things that are affecting us like our

  • stress our anger issues and all that a lot of it is money based right like I

  • was I was having a conversation with my girlfriend earlier about this and it's

  • like how many how many household fights do you think happen because of money

  • issues right maybe it's stress about paying the bills maybe it's a job that a

  • person doesn't like maybe it's you know whatever like something that has to do

  • with finances how many fights do you think are happening and not even to the

  • extreme of like domestic violence but just like verbal and emotional abuse

  • now how many have households with children do you think this happens in

  • right because children are being subject to this to like I would be interested to

  • hear from you guys in the comments down below in your household how often is

  • money an issue you know what I mean so if everybody is getting extra sales

  • dollars maybe you would help lessen the stress so something I've talked about a

  • million times on my channel is no money does not guarantee happiness but it does

  • decrease stress okay so what are the arguments that ben shapiro brought up is

  • you know this kind of optimist view that if everybody gets an extra thousand

  • dollars they're gonna do something good with it or they're gonna pursue a hobby

  • or a passion or you know something like that and that's not guaranteed and seem

  • like andrew yang he's very real this thing about it he knows that some people

  • will not do that like for example I'm a recovering drug addict okay I've been

  • clean for six and a half years I think about if you would have given me an

  • extra thousand dollars a month six and a half years ago like that would have gone

  • straight to drugs just like that's what I would have done but anyways the study

  • that they did up in Canada what it was is when when people were getting a

  • universal basic income in let them be a little bit more you know choosy about

  • which type of job they would get like they didn't have to get a crappy job

  • right because they had something to fall back on and what this did was it made

  • employers has better working conditions because way now I know a lot of you are

  • working at the job a job where it's like the the employer or your boss is like

  • this like you know authoritarian kind of you like run this way in this way in

  • this way right but when there's more of that kind of balance of power where you

  • don't need that job hey I can see the argument where it kind of forces

  • employers to do something like run businesses a little bit better for the

  • employees alright so something else that came up was Andrew yang supports

  • single-payer health care but he does think you know if you want private

  • insurance you can still go ahead and do that but something that I often think

  • about too is and there's a question for you when it comes back to mental health

  • how many of you are stressed out or don't get the proper health care because

  • of the way our health care system currently is you have jacked up

  • prescription drug prices really high deductibles all these different things

  • and this can add up to stress as well and something that Andrew yang talks

  • about every time I've heard this guy speak so far he mentions depression

  • anxiety and stress as well as suicide rates

  • as well as the addiction crisis in the United States so I see that as being

  • something that it seems like it's in the forefront of his mind and just as

  • somebody who tries to analyze and read people like seeing him constantly go

  • back to those things I'm like okay it seems like this dude really cares about

  • the root causes now something I hope to learn about him in

  • the future going forward is his ideas of how to make this happen right because

  • right now in the political landscape like we we haven't even gotten down to

  • like the primaries and everything like that like you just have it's very noisy

  • and you have a bunch of candidates who are just saying things to appease people

  • to pander to people and everything like that but when you get somebody like

  • Bernie Sanders he's been in this game for decades now and he has plans to put

  • things into action you know what I mean so that's that's something I'm looking

  • forward to learning about when it comes to Andrew yang and like as far as like

  • political affiliation like like for me it's just about policies I don't care

  • what party you're in what policies are you looking to put into place to make

  • life better for everybody in this country like that's pretty much all

  • people want you know what I mean so anyways Andrew Young also has a book

  • out I'm thinking about reading it not sure not sure how political it is or you

  • know whatever like politics isn't something I'm just like constantly in

  • but it's something that I try to keep an eye on because like I said at the

  • beginning of this video it's something that affects all of us so even if you

  • want to stay out of political conversations don't worry like I'm gonna

  • bring them up like leading into the 2020 election like my channel is just about

  • bringing awareness of things that may affect each and every one of us me is

  • the person making these videos and you as the viewer you know what I mean so

  • anyways like I said if you know more about Andrew yang and his ideas of

  • policies or whatever it is if you're part of the yang gang how cool is that

  • man by the way let me know down the comments below but anyways that's all I

  • got for this video if you like this video please give it a thumbs up if
