Management and Market Research
Born: October 9th, 1978  (age 38)


With his experience as the managing director of a data collection center, Ed Baker understands how to conduct quality opinion research. He hopes this experience will give him additional insight into the expectations of the electorate while seeking the presidency in 2016 as an independent. A lifelong Oregon resident, Baker started working in market research call centers at the age of fifteen.

His gambling addiction early in life resulted in Baker running afoul of the law. With the help of a gambling counselor, Baker turned his life around. However, his conviction prevented many job opportunities which led to a year of homelessness. He believes his inside knowledge of the criminal justice system will be relatable to many voters with similar experiences.

On the issues, Ed Baker wants to secure the border and American jobs by deporting all illegal aliens. Those who leave voluntarily can apply for re-entry. Baker also supports capital punishment for any who enter illegally.

Dissatisfied with the official reports, Baker wants to reopen the investigation into the September 11 terrorist attacks. He supports capital punishment for anyone involved – including Americans who held or currently hold positions of power. As a proud supporter of America’s military, Baker intends to overhaul the Veterans Administration and provide more resources for veterans and their families.

Baker has called for a reduction of the federal debt by eliminating waste, fraud and abuse while streamlining programs to be more cost-effective. Foreign-aid would be reduced or eliminated to free up money to for domestic purposes.

With his “tough on crime” positions, the independent presidential candidate thinks strong punishment is key to reducing criminal activity and advocates the death penalty for murderers, sexual predators and hardcore drug traffickers. In addition, he supports building more prisons to hold dangerous felons longer. He also supports an overhaul of the CIA due to their “apparent involvement in drug trafficking.”

Ed Baker hopes his lack of political experience will be a positive as poll after poll demonstrates America’s disapproval with the direction of the country currently ran by entrenched politicians. However, a lack of resources and media attention may be too tough for his campaign to overcome.

Software Engineer
Born: February 1st, 1968  (age 49)


David Boarman was born and raised in Dallas County of Dallas, Texas, but now resides in Oceanside, California. Following high school, he enlisted for six years in the US Army. Though he spent more than half of that time stationed domestically, he was deployed for nearly three years in Berlin, Germany, where he was when news came down that the Berlin Wall was falling. Though he makes no mention of any higher education, he worked in various odd jobs and professional careers following his time in the military. When he relocated to California in 2011, it was to accept a role as a Software Engineer.

Boarman does not use the term himself, but he is what many would call a “born-again” Christian. That is to say, he was raised to believe in Christianity and he did, but he laments that he frequently did not live in accordance with his religious beliefs, until a family crisis on which he does not elaborate brought him to a spiritual awakening in 2012. Today, his Christian faith is extremely strong – in fact, he is running for President because he believes it is God's will that he do so.

Boarman is a solidly conservative presidential candidate. He is tough on immigration, supporting expedited arrest and deportation of illegal immigrants and the institution of English as the official language of the United States. He calls for removal of federal regulation from both health care and education, leaving those issues to be addressed by the states. He supports a “full reformation” of the tax code, with a federal sales tax for individuals and a flat tax rate for businesses and corporations. He is also extremely accommodating towards religion, declaring that no institution or organization may infringe on the people's religious liberties, while simultaneously, no private business should be required to provide services contrary to the spiritual beliefs of its owners.

Boarman is friendly towards the Tea Party, though he does not personally identify as a member of that group. On his official campaign website, he links to the “Tea Party Community”, a message board which he maintains and on which he is a frequent contributor.

With strong right-wing policies and at least an attraction to the Tea Party, Boarman is a solid pick for voters of a conservative political bent. His plans for deregulation and tax reform, however, are likely to make him unsuitable to anyone left of center.
