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.

Businessman


Robert Dionisio was born in Naples, Italy, but the fact that his mother was at the US Naval hospital at the time entitles him to birthright US citizenship. He was raised in various American locales, including New York City, Massachusetts, and Maryland. He began a long fascination with business management while still in elementary school, when he earned money collecting discarded recyclables and redeeming them for cash. Later, at the age of 12, he supervised a paper route. He has attended two institutions of higher education, first the University of Maryland to earn a Bachelor of Science degree, and later George Washington University to pursue further studies in business and finance. In his professional career, he has owned a large number of businesses in a wide variety of industries, including oil and transportation, and has bought and sold extensively in the real estate market.

Dionisio is running as an Independent candidate with a right-wing political platform, but he is critical of both Republican and Democratic parties – particularly of their historical Presidents. He is an opponent of the most recent Iraq war, and in fact accuses then-President George W Bush of initiating it for personal reasons, as a means of obtaining vengeance against Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein for embarrassments against both Bush and his father, who also did battle with Iraq during the 1990's. Dionisio says the invasion was a mistake, and that Hussein – whom, he makes no argument, was an evil tyrant – should have been assassinated by US special forces following his attack of Kuwait (the reason George HW Bush went to war in the Middle East). But he loses no love on Democratic Presidents either: Dionisio criticizes Bill Clinton's administration of 1993-2001, too, charging that it weakened the nation against terrorism amidst other failings.

Dionisio is an advocate of budget reform, starting with more careful management of foreign aid to other countries. He says recipients of US generosity often squander the majority of the money they receive, or else pour it into what he calls the “financial bottomless pit” of war.

Domestically, Dionisio strongly supports gun ownership rights, calling them a powerful deterrent against violence. To bolster his argument, he cites the European nation of Switzerland, with its prolifically armed citizenry and one of the world's lowest crime rates; and simultaneously, Washington DC, which despite strict gun control laws has been named the “Murder Capital” of the US. He also references statistics estimating that hundreds of thousands of American women annually are able to avoid being raped due to their possession of firearms.

With his criticisms of budget spending and strong support for gun rights, Dionisio is likely to attract conservative voters. However, his opposition to the Iraq war may displease the same audience, while appealing to political leftists.
