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 



Water Treatment Operator (Retired)


James “Jim” Creighton Mitchell, Jr resides in Lake Villa, Illinois. He attended a number of colleges and universities, graduating from Northeastern Illinois University, Chicago with a B.A. in Business and Finance. He also pursued a degree in Chemistry with a minor in Mathematics, but this part of his education was interrupted by his military service – he served in the US Navy from 1967 to 1974, after which he was honorably discharged. He has had a long non-military professional career as well, mostly in potable water treatment, pollution processing, and other sanitation industries. He has also worked as Facilities Manager at the Saddlebrook Farms retirement community, Vice President of a manufacturers' representative business, and as a lab technician.

Mitchell is a solidly right-leaning candidate across the board. He supports gun rights, declaring that the “modern militia” (a likely reference to the 'well-regulated militia' invoked in the Second Amendment) is an American citizen licensed for concealed carry. He supports drastically cutting the national debt, as much as 8% after four years, and to that end proposes repealing the Sixteenth Amendment and overhauling the tax code. He opposes any and all abortion, and calls the relationship between husband and wife – one man and one woman – the “ultimate respected authority” within a community. As a means of reducing gang recruitment, Mitchell supports drafting all young people for mandatory military service of at least two years. On the issue of foreign policy as it relates to the contentious Middle East, he stands unequivocally with Israel in all ways, including militarily.

Mitchell believes in the importance of combating the illicit drug trade, and he has a novel idea for accomplishing this goal. He proposes having the government distribute hard narcotics (and even medicinal marijuana) for free upon request, arguing that the flood of no-cost supply into the market will break the economic backs of illegal drug peddlers. He also believes this will make it easier for addicts to seek rehabilitation by decriminalizing their dependency.

In a rare departure from his usual conservatism, Mitchell speaks critically of the “big Pharmacy cartel” and advocates for the need to rein it in. He does remark on the possibility of repealing Obamacare, but he is concerned with equitable access to healthcare for all Americans, and maintains this can be achieved by educating high school students in healthier lifestyle choices. He believes his mandatory military service program, instilling discipline and healthy living in the young, will aid in this goal.

On a vast majority of issues, Mitchell's solid conservatism makes him well-suited to his chosen Republican party, and even where he strays, his views are in no way sufficiently leftist to attract much attention from that side of the spectrum. Most of the GOP will welcome him, and his sympathetic ideas.
