    Most people had probably only heard of Donald Trump during the more recent Republican primaries. Many appear to have been Democrats, all 78,000 or so of them. Clinton won the popular vote, likely less well-known to voters than now President Trump.

    Now there are lots of Democratic presidential aspirants gaining name recognition. Notably, so far: Vice President Biden is not one of them(?). So all of a sudden, there is an appearance of cohesion building around actual issues. Former Rep, Senator Hillebrand, maybe summarizes the various options most concisely.

    What does Kirsten Gillibrand believe? Where the candidate stands on 11 issues

    Many might wonder if arithmetic is in play. Senators Sanders and Harris are doing old-history math. Apparently the option is to borrow from Uncle China, some more. The lesser well known are willing to opt for Single Payer Health Coverage--so equal amount arithmetic for everyone(?). Then the newer concept of "Debt-Free" college coverage is in play. Sanders and Harris tend to full-federal college funding, (of students, or of teachers): Reliant on China. Hillebrand and O'Rourke tend to low interest or zero interest tuition loans, and maybe grants. To be sensible: Those would likely have to be equal amount limits.

    Nigeria has no collateral, low-interest loans for Micro-businesses. Anyone sees what could easily drift on in.

    Fixed Percentage usury arithmetic, like in Matt 25:14-30: Is arithmetic that discriminates against those with less. Equal Amount arithmetic--Matthew 20:1-16--was available in Obama's "Make Work Pay," Refundable Income Tax Credit--regardless if the taxpayers had worked all the year or not. That could have been indexed, (helping repay China), The Republicans took that away instead. The lesser well-known Democratic candidates are steering away from the China-Reliant kinds of policies: Arithmetic.

    Accounting is apparently not to be said a Republican strong suit--with a nod from the liberal university educated.

    New faces with common agenda are now in play for 2020: Arithmetic.

    Republicans have never been good with math. In fact, that’s why they elected Trump to be president. Trump said he got $1 million from his dad when he got over 400 million. Who miscounts by 399 million?

    The majority holder of US debt is the US tax payer not China.

    Chinese premier, Xi Jinping, was not an original USA founding father, but does lead the nation with the most of the foreign-held federal debt. Most is in fact held in the USA. Bringing the levels down is a part of the arithmetic change. Changing away from recent reliance on foreign creditors would make even nationalists weep(?). "Jews, Moslems, Mexicans, Costa Ricans, El Salvadorians, The Rest of the United Nations: Will Not Replace Us!" is likely not thought a call to make them all lenders of choice.

    People understand, "Regressive Taxes," (aka Social Security), "Inflated costs," (Executive pay), "Interest Rates," (credit costs), "Recession," (no further markets--needing to be primed). That is all arithmetic, in the process of being changed, and even globally.

    The lesser-known candidates are actually more in that Vanguard, opposed to the front-runners apparently, already announced. The reliance is on even a more or less cashless, arithmetic-based. digital device economy. . . .maybe.

    Republicans will have to label Democrats, "Liberal Free Markets Friendly," instead.

    When you can morph five dancing Israelis into "thousands and thousands of people dancing on rooftops" a 399-to-one fabrication is child's play.

    Course, with Rump it's ALL child's play....

    From Gallup Poll July, 2015: "Donald Trump is the best-known Republican candidate in the last two weeks, while former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is second, according to the results of a Gallup tracking poll of Republicans and Republican-leaners out Friday."

    Mostly, the point of the OP is the newer arithmetic message for economies that may possibly be motivating the lesser known Democratic presidential aspirants.

    Sanders and Harris--like the GOP--are reliant on the expansion of the credit market--in the case of the Republicans, with virtually no expansion of the market economics that is needed to support it. Credit Expansion, for the older economics, was supposed to be public works. The New Deal CCC encouraged the enrolled to send the money home. Contrasting, Health Coverage and Teaching are limited additional support programs for the already prosperous--the educational and medical sectors. The fixed percentage raises happen, unless there is basis to limit or curtail them completely. The enrolled in either program get nothing but paid service.

    The concept of the Equal Amount Refundable Tax Credit, Indexed, offered a national COLA intended to preserve the ability to repay capital. That offers the contrast with the fixed percentage pay-raising programs.

    Hillebrand added at least community service projects--equally throughout the economy. Loans for schools mimic loans for small business--like available in Nigeria. Projects that generate capital enhancing revenue make sense. Loans that generate pricing options make sense. Funding that only pays the prosperous do not.
