MATH?
Debate
Just posting this to start a general discussion about the MATH hats..I think I more or less get the context that Yang says he’s the opposite of Donald Trump cause he’s an Asian that likes math but I also think that if the hat is going to be an antithetical answer to MAGA hats then it should be an acronym.

I’m sure I’m not the only one thinking this. If you agree that “MATH” should stand for something, please share your suggestions and let’s see if we can come up with something cool and hopefully helpful.

In another thread I had suggested: Make Americans Think Harder

I’m sure someone can come up with something better or maybe my version is better than I think. Please let me know what y’all think.

It’s important to start incrementally and build on successes while learning from mistakes....and it is important to constantly be re-evaluating policy proposals and options.  We need #MATH = Make Americans Think Harder

Andrew Yang: ‘I’m Going to Be the First President to Use PowerPoint at the State of the Union’
By Susan Jones | April 17, 2019 | 7:52 AM EDT
(CNSNews.com) - Entrepreneur Andrew Yang, one of many people running for the Democrat presidential nomination, is fond of numbers, statistics and technology.

As he spoke to a small crowd of mostly young people, Yang wore a “MATH” hat—MATH stands for “Make Americans Think Harder,” he said.
