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.

Middle-Class Working Person


Perry Morcom was born and raised in the state of Texas. Little information is available on his academic qualifications, employment history or current profession; he merely says that he is a “middle-class working person” who has worked hard for everything he has.

Morcom is frustrated that even when speaking with news media about his candidacy, he was confronted with concerns that his campaign is not sufficiently well funded to achieve success; he rejects the notion that a presidential bid should be entirely dependent on finances, and argues that all candidates should be treated equally regardless of how much money they have.

Addressing an issue that has been raised more than once in American history, Morcom is dissatisfied with the Electoral College system as practiced in the resolution of elections. He alludes to the fact that its specifics were flawed as originally designed by pointing out that congress passed the Twelfth Amendment in 1803 to modify it. He also echoes a concern murmured in the United States since the presidential election of 2000, when George W Bush won the White House despite receiving fewer total votes than opponent Al Gore. Accordingly, Morcom opposes the Electoral College system and believes the President should be chosen by simple popular vote. He also believes that elected representatives in the House and Senate should be strictly limited to no more than two four-year terms, as is imposed upon the President.

Morcom is sympathetic to the plight of illegal immigrants crossing into the United States. He blames their undocumented status on the government's failure to efficiently process their papers, and believes they should be helped to attain legitimate status and even citizenship. He dismisses the common argument that immigrants take jobs from existing citizens, saying that by and large, they only perform work that Americans do not wish to do. He does admit that some immigrants may be drug dealers or other criminals, however, and supports vetting applicants and their intentions carefully.

Morcom wishes to reduce government overspending by cutting the budget, followed by lowering taxes. He also supports helping the energy industry to stabilize local oil markets, as well as continuing development of renewable energy technology such as wind turbines. He criticizes the “Obamacare” reforms by stating that many people still do not have access to affordable health care, and wishes to restructure the law, in part by regulating the amounts which doctors and hospitals are permitted to charge for their services.

In his desire to curb overspending and lower taxes, Morcom shows conservative political tendencies. However, his understanding attitude toward illegal immigrants, interest in renewable energy, and price control intentions towards the healthcare industry place him solidly left of center. Though running as an Independent candidate, most of Morcom's support is likely to be found among Democrats.
