Declared 2016 



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.

Declared 2016 



Conservative Christian and 2012 presidential candidate
Born: April 12th, 1975  (age 41)


David Christopher Holcomb was born in Denver, Colorado and raised by his parents, Richard and Lorraine, in Nebraska. Interestingly, David has ten adopted siblings from four different countries, in addition to six more biological siblings. David has a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology and then earned his Juris Doctor in law from Creighton University. He now specializes in family law, running his own law office from his house. David is been married to his wife of two years, Victoria, and has no children.

Holcomb portrays himself as a calm and compassionate Christian; however his political and social agenda is probably one that not all Christians agree with. He says that he and “We the People” are all “Anti-Islam,” and “it is time now for immediate, full force military strikes by the international Christian Crusade on Iran’s nuclear capabilities.” He gives no reason for his hatred of Islam except for the fact that he wants to return the United States to the Judeo-Christian values it was built on.

If Holcomb is serious in his quest for the White House, he will definitely need to appear as less provocative and extreme, and more informed and presidential. His website failed to provide his beliefs and ideas on the economy, taxes, and the serious issues of our country. He also refuses to use social media of any kind, a choice which will restrict his reach to the electorate. If David Christopher Holcomb wants to win any votes in 2016, he should probably start by clarifying where he stands on the issues. He claims to also be running for the United States Senate as an independent candidate in 2014.
