【重磅：华裔杨安泽退出民主党 计划筹建第三党】～ 魁省山寨· 蒙城老張蒙城老張-101698 10/05 276
今天，美国的民主党已不同昔日，他们正在辜负了过去老民主党人和普通选民对该党的支持，他们的施政纲领和他们的宗旨正在慢慢地变着颜色，太多政客混入其中，而且演变成狂妄自大 胡作非为 唯我独尊，没有自思自省，反而积极推行激进的社会主义理念，打着为底层民众谋福利的旗号，但却和官僚资本紧紧勾结，和官僚集团深度勾结勾兑己明目张胆破坏法治。美国的堕落他们是负有极大的责任。
看看咱们家医生对杨的批评1: 在 Georgia 州参议员选举时，Andrew Yang, 曾号招民主党选民移居该州帮助民主党候选人。曾经被Georgia 州官警告不要知法犯法，上面的图又是另一脸孔，要捍卫宾法。第一图是要move the world forward, 他的意是不是要move people to Georgia ，作弊之后，so the world can move forward? 哈哈😄
而更多华人也对杨毫不留情地给予讽刺与批评2: “此人太给华人丢脸了。 ”
蒙城老張：看看杨安泽的竞选就知道，他并不是太在意在华人社区下功夫作平衡，有可能他自认是香蕉仔，杨当然认同他的华人身份，但对华人社区，他显然是保持一定的距离，所以社会对他是否不太认同华人的身份也有不同看法。但从他以民主党候选人和以民主党的角度来讲，你可以看着他是一个彻头彻尾的一个民主党员。起码他在遵循着该党的理念。 我个人看杨安泽，倒是应该有尊重和包容。杨个人成功和奋斗不容否定，他的个人奋斗在美国这样一个大熔炉里，个人的政治观点和个人的做派，也不需要看自己本身族群的意见，因为他并不在意华人的选票，但问题在于杨的脸孔是东方人，而别人就把你混淆成东方，我们可以看到在他的初选时期，一直到后面慢慢才有不同的人士开始慢慢接纳他、认可他，他的一些思维不可否认他是一个美国人一个华裔美国人。 至于说他是不是给华人丢脸，我到不完全这么认为。
杨安泽此前接受采访时透露将成立第三政党，打破美国现有两党制度，并计划将他的新政党定名为“前进党”(Forward Party)，并在即将出版的新书“前进：美国民主未来的注解”(Forward: Notes on the Future of Our Democracy)中阐明建党理念；他表示，美国的两党制让极端政治大行其道，大多数希望走中间道路的选民利益一直被忽略，这种模式不可持续；他主张推广开放式初选和排序複选制，让极端政治回归中道。

I changed my voting registration from ‘Democrat’ to ‘Independent’ today. It was a strangely emotional experience. I registered as a Democrat back in 1995 when I was 20 years old to vote for Bill Clinton’s re-election. It was a no-brainer for me. I went to a college that was very liberal. I lived in New York City. Everyone around me was a Democrat. Bill Clinton vs. Bob Dole? Clinton was one of the youngest presidents when he was elected and seemed more in tune to me, as a 20 year old. Keep in mind that I grew up the son of immigrants and my family did not talk about politics at all growing up. I still have no idea how or even if my parents voted. I have a vague recollection of my Mom watching a debate and saying, “I don’t like him” but I can’t remember who she was referring to. She doesn’t remember either. Throughout my twenties I remained a staunch Democrat, though like many others I was drawn primarily to national races. I co-hosted a small fundraiser for John Kerry’s campaign at a bar when I was 29 – I think we raised maybe $3,000. I thrilled to Barack Obama’s victory in 2008 and, to a lesser extent, his re-election in 2012. Around this time I was invited to the White House to receive recognition by the Obama White House as both a Champion of Change and a Presidential Ambassador of Global Entrepreneurship as the founder of a non-profit, Venture for America that helped create hundreds of jobs in the Midwest and the South. Bringing Evelyn to meet the President was a lot of fun. In 2016, I donated to Bernie Sanders’ campaign – everything he said struck me as true – but then voted for Hillary Clinton against Trump. When Trump won, I was surprised and took it as a red flag and call to action. Having spent six years working in the Midwest and the South I believed I had some insight as to what had driven Trump’s victory. I spent several years making the case for what I believed was the major policy that could address it – Universal Basic Income. As you’d imagine, as a Democratic presidential candidate, I met a lot of Democrats around the country. Literally thousands. At first, many didn’t know what to make of the odd Asian candidate talking about giving everyone money. But over time I established deep relationships with some of the local leaders who have worked in party politics for years. Al Womble in Iowa, Steve Marchand in New Hampshire, Jermaine Johnson in South Carolina and others. I also became friends with some of the other candidates out in the field. Cory Booker, Michael Bennet, Pete Buttigieg and Beto O’Rourke are people I’d consider friends who are motivated by the right things. As I’ve become more of a household name, I’ve worked with many senior officials. I headlined several fundraisers for the DNC and participated in fundraising appeals. I was a surrogate for Joe for months. I spent weeks in Georgia trying to help win the seats for Jon Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock, helping raise millions to do so. I’m proud of helping to activate Asian American voters in what I believed were historic races. And running for mayor, I similarly met and became friends with activists and elected officials who are longtime public servants on the Democratic side. People like Grace Meng, Ritchie Torres, John Liu, Carlos Menchaca, Kenny Burgos, Vanessa Gibson and Dan Rosenthal are excellent. Again, I have at this point dozens of friends and confidantes who are entrenched in the Democratic Party. I’ve been a Democrat my entire adult life. And yet, I’m confident that no longer being a Democrat is the right thing. Please, keep in mind that I am NOT suggesting that you also change your voter registration to Independent, as I have done. Doing so could disenfranchise you if you live in the 83% of the country that is very blue or very red. For this reason, I considered either not making this change or not talking about it. So why do I feel in my heart that this is the right move? While it was simply a small piece of paperwork, I genuinely felt a shift in my mindset as soon as I signed it. My goal is to do as much as I can to advance our society. There are phenomenal public servants doing great work every day – but our system is stuck. It is stuck in part because polarization is getting worse than ever. Many of the people I know are doing all of the good they can – but their impact is constrained. Now that I’m not a member of one party or another, I feel like I can be even more honest about both the system and the people in it. The key reform that is necessary to help unlock our system is a combination of Open Primaries and Ranked Choice Voting, which will give voters more genuine choice and our system more dynamism. It will also prevent the spoiler effect that so many Democrats are concerned about, which is a byproduct of a two party system with a binary contest and simple plurality voting. I believe I can reach people who are outside the system more effectively. I feel more . . . independent. Also, on a personal level, I’ll admit there has always been something of an odd fit between me and the Democratic Party. I’m not very ideological. I’m practical. Making partisan arguments – particularly expressing what I often see as performative sentiment – is sometimes uncomfortable for me. I often think, “Okay, what can we actually do to solve the problem?” I’m pretty sure there are others who feel the same way I do. I’ve seen politicians publicly eviscerate each other and then act collegial or friendly backstage a few minutes later. A lot of it is theatre. I’ve also had people publicly attack me and then text or call me privately to make sure that we were still cool. It just had to be done for appearances. Perhaps it’s the nature of my upbringing, but I’m actually more comfortable trying to fix the system than being a part of it. One very senior Democrat member of Congress texted me to say, “I’m sorry to see you go. But I know you’ll do as much good as you can from the outside. And eventually, remember the outsiders become the insiders.” I’ve got to say it feels really good to be building my own team. This is where I’m most at home. Recently, in an interview I commented that I wasn’t particularly driven by a desire to hold office. I’m working for impact. Breaking up with the Democratic Party feels like the right thing to do because I believe I can have a greater impact this way. Am I right? Let’s find out. Together.
