James Felton Keith

James Felton Keith has one of the worst websites I have ever seen. Nevertheless I would vote for him if I were in his district.

James Felton Keith advocates for a Universal Basic Income based on the personal data collected about humans that runs the machinery (algorithms) that eliminates the need for a human workforce and profits the owners of those algorithms. He wants to “give the value of data back to the people”.

James Felton Keith believes housing is a human right. He has ideas of a universal rent control.

James Felton Keith would like to see life-long free college. This is the first time I’ve seen a politician include “life-long” as part of a free college proposal.

While we don’t have enough detail to know who would or would not get James Felton Keith’s version of Universal Basic Income, which he calls a “data dividend”, on the surface it seems better than Yang’s plan which does not extend to everybody. And while Bernie Sanders’ programs may minimize the urgency for a Universal Basic Income, it is still better to have someone in Congress who supports the idea than to elect a presidential candidate like Yang who makes promises that cannot be fulfilled without the cooperation of the U.S. House and Senate.
