The Impossible is Possible

The Impossible is Possible



Dr. Quintus Jett: the Impossible is Indeed Possible

I landed in New Orleans about a year after Katrina. Like many others, I had come to help. 

Pontchartrain Park is one of the first African American designed communities in New Orleans and one of 22 neighborhoods in the district of Gentilly. I had come to map the house-to-house conditions in Pontchartrain.
 

The goal was unattainable.

I had 18 days to map a decimated neighborhood in New Orleans, it seemed impossible. But to my surprise I connected with a motivated and insightful group of volunteers upon arrival.

Our collaboration resulted in the complete mapping of Pontchartrain Park in four days and four more neighborhoods within the remaining two weeks. This unexpected success motivated my return months later to continue mapping the 22 neighborhoods.
 

It wasn’t clear how we would do it. If you had told me at the start of my first trip that we would complete all 22 neighborhoods in 32 days, I would have said: “that’s impossible.”

Which brings me to the present.

I first became involved with the Yang campaign in March of 2019 and one of my first experiences was going to meet some Los Angeles Yang Gang. I was struck by their politically diverse backgrounds: a former Trump supporter, a UCLA grad student from the Midwest, a scientist organizing Yang supporters IRL (in real life) in Orange County, and many others.

The spirit I experienced in New Orleans years ago and the spirit among the Yang Gang today are incredibly similar: people who want to make a difference, people who WILL make a difference — but don’t necessarily know how. 

In New Orleans, we developed a process-driven mapping plan to provide structure for our energy and enthusiasm. What we have working for us in the Yang Gang, are the Yang Treasure Maps.

Like New Orleans, I don’t know exactly how but I know that we’re going to do it. 

I promise you that what appears impossible today, is indeed possible.

I am Yang Gang – Grace’s Story

I am Yang Gang - Grace's Story


My Name Is Grace and I AM YANG GANG

I am a 52 year old woman — mother of two adult twin boys, both of whom are neurologically atypical, unable to work and living at home.

Both my husband and I are disabled; he was blinded in an industrial accident and a car accident left me with permanent and degenerative spine damage. I have never voted, although I supported Donald Trump in 2016.

I am Yang Gang because I am EXHAUSTED. 

I am exhausted by the constant hoops I must jump through to prove that I am still permanently disabled as if the word “permanent” changes its meaning every six months. I am exhausted by the endless and dehumanizing questions about why I can’t work.

I am exhausted by the system which allowed my sons to drop off public medical benefits when they turned 18, while providing no assistance despite their neurological impairments. 

I am 52 years old and I’ve lived a hundred years of exhaustion. 

I’ve been holding my family of four together on a little more than $1000 a month in social assistance. Rent and utilities take 60% of our income. We rely on charity to fill in the holes in the pantry. 

The Freedom Dividend would quadruple our household income, from $1,000 to $4,000 per month.
 

We have no savings, that’s just a pipe dream. We have no ‘rainy day fund’ because we live underwater all the time. We are one flat tire away from being homeless. I went to Walmart to buy a can of beans and my only pair of boots gave out, this was Thanksgiving Day.

I AM YANG GANG because there are millions of families just like mine who live in exhaustion and hopelessness; stuck at the bottom with no boots, let alone bootstraps with which to pull ourselves up. 

Andrew Yang gives me hope.

Hope that I can leave behind the empty stomachs and empty gas tank. Hope that I might be able to wake up without gnawing dread about what will happen to my sons when I’m gone.

Greed Has Killed the American Dream 

I am a 59 year old, Canadian-born, independent business woman. I immigrated to the US in the early 90’s and have watched America change from a beacon of prosperity to a harsh, cruel place for a shocking majority of its citizens. 

But at the time, I didn’t notice. I just had this nagging sense of unease.
Like many of us, I was busy.

I was busy building businesses and raising a couple of kids. I was only paying peripheral attention to our political climate. I did change party affiliation on the promise of “hope” from Obama in 2008 and again Bernie in 2016. 
In 2018, I was frustrated, over it, and considering moving abroad.

That was, until February when a Trump-voting family member forwarded me Tucker Carlson’s Rise of the Robots video with Andrew Yang. 

Curious for more, I listened to Joe Rogan’s interview with Yang. When Andrew spoke about the false assumptions around “Trickle-down Economics” I had an epiphany — I finally understood the source of that nagging unease. 
 
I was hooked. I read the books, watched the videos, and listened to the interviews. Andrew Yang’s message opened my eyes and I started to understand people’s circumstances. The picture became clear.
Now, I FEEL the hope.

And I understand how to contribute. Not only do I give time and money to the campaign, I continue to dedicate my time and money to causes related to homelessness, homelessness prevention, and the eradication of poverty. 
I AM Yang Gang …and I’m neither millennial, nor male.

I am Yang Gang because Andrew Yang inspired me to be a better person and to put #HumanityFirst.

A Vote for Yang is a Vote for Freedom

Just like Yang’s, my parents retired back to Taiwan. Taiwan is a small and beautiful island nation where gentle persuasion is how we influence the world. 

An understanding of complex linguistic and cultural differences guides many Taiwanese entrepreneurs to bridge cross-cultural barriers between Chinese and American corporations. In this in-between, many Taiwanese find our strength, our power and our sense of freedom.
Freedom is the ability to be your best.

“Freedom” is the idea that founded America and the leader who understands the government’s relationship to this idea will win this election. This relational understanding — whether between cultures or ideas — is how we will heal an increasingly divided nation. 
Problem solving will unite Humanity.

Like me, Andrew Yang is a Taiwanese American. His candidacy relies on data-driven, holistic problem solving to unite Americans on the challenges of the 21st century. But it will take more than Americans.
No one nation can alone stop climate change or eliminate abject poverty. No person can alone experience true freedom without the power of economic choice. No species can be truly free without clean air and water.

Our children’s future requires our focus to solve these problems and Yang’s presidency will unify nations of the world toward the same vision.
A vote for Andrew Yang is a vote for Freedom. The right measurements and practical problem solving creates a New Way Forward to a truly abundant America where freedom allows each of us to be our best.

My name is Faye and this is my perspective. My son and I are proud to support Andrew Yang.

Fiancee Challenged Me to Join Yang Gang

I was living 300 miles from my fiancee while becoming increasingly frustrated with what I thought was my “dream job”. Needing to clear my head after work, I took my bike for a spin as motorcycling was always a natural release for me. 
It was a normal ride until until it wasn’t. A silver Chrysler sedan in the opposing lane turned in front of me and stopped.
I was frustrated, in pain, and missed my partner and best friend. So I left my job, packed up the car and found a place for both of us in Detroit where we celebrated our first Christmas in the same house.

We awoke to find my car had been stolen. The police notified us it had been totaled and towed. Maybe some people aren’t meant to have vehicles?
 
Limited mobility lead to unexpected free time which I spent catching up on podcasts — a friend recommended the Andrew Yang episode of Freakonomics Radio. I was shocked by the common-sense and impactful solutions presented and full #YangGang within the hour.
My fiancee suggested I get involved with the Yang Gang IRL instead of just online. Starting as a Yang Gang Primary Contact in Detroit, we began preparing for the July debate. I took on the additional responsibility as a Regional Organizer for Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio. Eventually creating the Yang Gang Operations Team along with Quintus Jett and Rondi Frisch.
Our team had grown close over the summer and ultimately realized we could be more effective outside campaign headquarters.

In October, we founded Abundance For America. 

Our mission is to empower Yang supporters with the strategy, materials and knowledge required to grow support for Yang’s vision. We have completed Treasure Maps for each state and are currently fundraising to distribute supplies alongside the maps.
I’m voting for Andrew Yang and I hope you will join me in empowering the Yang Gang nationwide.

A Drunk Driver Killed My Mother

“My path to supporting Andrew Yang started when my world was shattered. My mother, mentor, and guiding light was killed by an intoxicated driver.

At an age meant for self-discovery and exploration, I became aimless and drifting. I was sleep-walking through career paths and job opportunities. As a Wall St. broker, I saw a system that rewards deceit and unethical practices while benefiting few. Was this really what I wanted?

So I left, strapping on my entrepreneurial boots and forging a new path forward.

At my wedding five years later, the empty seat at the head table was a pointed reminder of what I had lost. But it wasn’t until my wife and I were joined by our first child that I truly heard my mother’s message. She believed in being the change so I began advocating for social entrepreneurship and fighting for climate protection.
 

This is when I discovered Andrew Yang.

He and I have our own storied past but we share a fruitful vision of the future. By living in-the-trenches, Andrew developed a data-driven approach for real positive change and impactful policies. At a time when others exude braggadocious divisiveness, Andrew understands that a rising American tide will lift all ships.

I am confident that with Andrew Yang at the helm, the United States of America will once again become the shining beacon that the world is proud to follow.

I’m voting for Andrew Yang, and I hope you will join me in supporting the Yang Gang.”
