  • so it was just announced that Andrew yang just made the third round of the

  • Democratic debates so in this video not only are we gonna be talking to how

  • Andrew yang is the only candidate who seems to care about mental health but

  • we're gonna talk about how he made at this third round of debates and the

  • other things that he stands for so make sure you stay tuned 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 take a wide range of

  • subjects and trying to see what lessons we can pull from them to improve our own

  • mental and emotional well-being and something that I'm extremely extremely

  • passionate about is mental health so if you're into that stuff makes you

  • subscribe and ring that notification bell and if you're just now meeting me I

  • do care so much about mental health that actually write some books on it I'm not

  • a licensed therapist or a psychologist I'm a certified life coach and I've been

  • clean and sober for seven years I've battled depression as well as addiction

  • and anxiety and I write books about that stuff so check out my website

  • www.weg.net works for you all right so yeah anyways let's talk about Andrew

  • yang I did a video a while back about my first impressions of Andrew yang and

  • I've been kind of following him you know on Twitter and in the media and

  • everything just to kind of get a feel for him something that I want you guys

  • to hold me accountable for I need to read this book I need to read this

  • dude's book if you've read it let me know down in the comments below how you

  • liked it and your thoughts on it and things no spoilers haha I'm just kidding

  • anyways yeah I think I'm gonna go check it out from the library and try to knock

  • it out in the next week or two and maybe do like a book review on it but I really

  • want to get to know him more so I've watched you know both rounds of debates

  • so far and yeah like the first round of debates Andrew yang was kind of screwed

  • all right like he had the least amount of talking time and then it came out

  • after that his mic was being cut out all right and it's crazy because then he

  • ended up when for that on Twitter and we're gonna be

  • talking about Andrew yang on Twitter because he's doing it like a boss but

  • anyways what I felt interesting in the second round of debates was that he

  • still was at the very bottom for the amount of talking time that he had and

  • that's really fascinating to me because he's doing so well but even though he

  • had the least amount of talking time and both debates he still just made the

  • third round of debates he has a massive amount of support you might be part of

  • that yang gang and let's talk about how Andrew yang is seemingly the only

  • candidate who cares about mental health so here's kind of my philosophy on

  • politics my views my opinions um we all care about certain things all right

  • for example if you're a business owner you probably look at candidates and see

  • what their policies are for small businesses and things like that if

  • you're a woman or you care about women's rights you're probably looking at where

  • the can this stay or state they're at with abortion laws and things like that

  • and there's a lot of issues in this country so I think for me personally

  • it's important to kind of prioritize you know your own values and then really

  • look and see what the candidates are saying and my number one thing is mental

  • health so when I listen to these candidates talk I try to hear if they're

  • talking about mental health and here's one of the main reasons why this is such

  • a concern for me going into the upcoming elections next year in 2016

  • leading up to that you have so many candidates who were talking about like

  • the opioid epidemic all right I'm a recovering opioid addict I have seven

  • years clean and sober I've worked in addiction treatment mental health care

  • and addiction health care in this country absolutely sucks

  • and you saw a lot of candidates talking about the opioid epidemic and things

  • that they were gonna do but nothing's happened like even Trump talked about it

  • but nothing has happened right and this is something that we see with

  • politicians they pander right when they go to the Northeast

  • they'll talk about the opioid epidemic because that is one of the major

  • conversations because there's so many overdose deaths up there right so

  • anyways mental health addiction and all it's something that I'm very tuned and

  • on so I listen to these candidates so even though Andrew yang has had the

  • least amount of time in both Democratic debates he has brought up mental health

  • each time all right and like I think it's important that we really watch

  • candidates and we watch other people in our life see what they stand for see

  • what topics are on their mind and Andrew yang in my opinion he's the only one

  • that I see bringing up mental health on a regular basis without being prompted

  • all right so what that tells me as a voter that that is something in the

  • forefront of his mind and that's something that I'm very passionate about

  • now don't get me wrong all right before the hate comments come in I'm not saying

  • that nobody else cares about mental health but it doesn't seem to be in the

  • forefront of their top other thoughts right like when they're prompted or ask

  • questions you know some of them say some good things and things like that

  • but my question is when they get into office what are they going to make a

  • priority and trust me this country has a million issues all right but I think

  • mental health needs to be the number one priority because it helps with you know

  • the anger problems that we have in the United States right it's so decided and

  • people are just angry people are so angry I would say the majority of people

  • in the United States I would love to do a poll on this they're either one of two

  • things angry or miserable all right and that's

  • something that we need to take an account now there are plenty of things

  • that are contributing to that like the economy and all that kind of stuff but

  • if we start at the top and teach people how to improve their mental health

  • regardless of how much money they make and things like that like this is a step

  • in the right direction because some of us we have to humble ourselves and take

  • the opportunities that are presented for us and things like that but when we get

  • entitled I think we deserve all these things right then it's affecting our

  • mental health and that's just my opinion on it so I appreciate that

  • Andrew yang talks about this quite a bit now if you're part of the yin gang or

  • you follow anything about Andrew he talks about the $1,000 a month which

  • is the freedom dividend and let me tell you this like when I see people talking

  • about how this is unpossible or anything like or for example when like Bernie

  • Sanders so I'm gonna talk about in a minute when he talks about you know free

  • college and you know Medicare for all and everything like that I need to do a

  • whole video on Medicare for all or maybe on my podcast Leila's people like we're

  • we gonna get that money we're we gonna get that money like please all right

  • like when you realize how much money we are spending on offensive Wars all right

  • when you understand what our military budget is like a fraction of that like a

  • small tiny piece like we could take funds from that and take care of so many

  • things and still have the most bad military in the world all right so like

  • don't even hit me with that math like where's the money gonna come from like

  • there is plenty of money we are just putting it in the wrong places

  • but anyways talking about Andrew Yang and the $1,000 a month and the freedom

  • dividend one of the best books on depression out there all right is from

  • an unlicensed person some of you get that joke Johann Hari okay get the book

  • lost connections he's an investigative journalist his first book chasing The

  • Scream was about the addiction epidemic around the world this next book that he

  • wrote lost connections is all about the depression problem around the world he

  • talks about anxiety as well but anyways he focuses on a ton of different studies

  • so I did a video about this a long time ago that got like absolutely no views

  • but they actually did a study in Canada where they gave people money right kind

  • of like the freedom dividend and they saw massive drops in things like

  • depression things like anxiety they also saw massive drops in health issues like

  • heart disease because people weren't as stressed out so that freedom dividend

  • when I hear Andrew yang talk about it he also mentions the mental health aspect

  • of it and you have people who opposed that and say oh no this will just make

  • people lazy or people are just gonna spin that on drugs

  • or stupid things or whatever but the studies they talk about in lost

  • connections prove otherwise all right when people feel more safe and secure

  • and comfortable they're more likely to go out there and get jobs but one of the

  • things is is that they're going to get jobs that they actually like and

  • employers have to be better too because people don't have to settle for working

  • at a crappy place like it is such an amazing study I'm gonna see if I can

  • find out an article to link down the description below like I will but don't

  • worry I got you baby oh but anyways that's why I just love

  • what Andrew Yang's doing so how he made the third round of debates here's my

  • theory on it this dude is plugged in and connected all right like I follow most

  • of the Democratic candidates on Twitter and most of them like when you look at

  • their Twitter accounts you're like okay is this really them tweeting or did they

  • tell somebody what to tweet right and with Andrew yang you can tell it's him

  • not only is it him who's tweeting out but he's also replying to tweets I just

  • saw him replied to Casey nice nod and stuff like that but he interacts and

  • gets involved with people and like that's why although he didn't get that

  • much airtime on the Democratic debates like he just made it to the third round

  • and was able to raise the funds because this dude is an entrepreneur he's a

  • businessman he understands marketing and he understands the importance of

  • connecting with your audience so regardless of what the mainstream media

  • media does like cutting out his mic or you know being against his like freedom

  • dividend and all those other things he is plugged in with people like you and

  • me all right aside from that he also just went on the

  • h3 h3 podcast which is huge I remember seeing Roberto Blake mention that on

  • Twitter like a month ago and then it happened so I'm not saying Roberto

  • helped get those wheels of motion but I would have be surprised but anyways like

  • Andrew yang getting on these kind of small

  • level podcast everything like you know Bernie Sanders was just on Joe Rogan but

  • I think it's important that Andrew yang is connecting with the other people in

  • the community and not just going after like the biggest ones for the biggest

  • exposure and all that like like this kind of micro marketing is huge and

  • that's what I think Bernie had you know in in 2016 or 2015 before he kind of got

  • screwed by the primaries but anyways my final thoughts on this for now for now I

  • will be doing updates and I do want to do more videos on politics so make sure

  • you let me know down in the comments below there's things you want me to

  • touch on but anyways in my opinion I I still like personally I think Bernie has

  • a great chance maybe Elizabeth Warren I would prefer Bernie though but in my

  • like dream team scenario it'd be Bernie Sanders for his experience right and

  • everything that he stands for boom you get Andrew yang as the vice president I

  • think those two dudes would make some amazing things happen but yeah like just

  • when it comes to Andrew yang like it's just even though he he understands all

  • this stuff and he has some great views and great ideas in my opinion who just

  • doesn't have the experience of somebody like Bernie Sanders so that's why you

  • know I would kind of put Bernie and then Andrew but let me know your thoughts

  • down in the comments below let me know who you're rooting for and if you're on

  • the other side of the aisle that's cool too like don't get me wrong like I like

  • although I lean more towards the liberal side like I am just somebody who looks

  • at policies and what aligns with my beliefs all right but let me know your

  • thoughts down in the comments below and I will be doing follow-ups so feel free

  • to follow me on Instagram and Twitter if there's any topics that you feel like I

  • should cover on here or even on my podcast just let me know because you

  • guys I'll tell you this I'll say this at the end of every video about politics

  • like you have no right to complain about a damn thing in this country unless

  • you're following the candidates and what they're about and then get your butt out

  • there and because if you don't you have absolutely

  • no right to come to complain about anything go out there vote and also be

  • educated about what these candidates actually stand for all right anyways

  • that's all I got for this video if you want some mental health books make sure

  • you check out the description and the pin comment down below

  • visit my website got them all over there all right but if you like this video
