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.

Humane Party Nominee


Clifton Roberts was born on Yukota Air Force Base in Japan, and attended and graduated from the University of California at Berkeley. He believes that having experience both from abroad and within the United States provides him with a unique and cultured perspective. Professionally, he has a history of working with a variety of corporations. As he was born on a US military base, Roberts is an American citizen.

Roberts is running as the first nominee of the Humane party, a group whose primary focus is animal rights. Most of Roberts' political platform is informed by this affiliation. He supports a constitutional amendment banning the “slaughter and mutilation” of non-human animals, and granting legal personhood to all sentient beings – a category upon which he does not elaborate, but appears to extend beyond humans. A strict vegan himself, he proudly declares that his body is, and for the past 18 years has been, “free of any deceased, murdered, or tortured soul”. He also plans to pursue legislation to prohibit the use of Genetically Modified Organisms, or GMOs, and expresses environmental concern in wishing to preserve existing ecosystems – and, again, the animals that maintain them.

Beyond animal rights and environmentalism, Roberts remains a left-leaning candidate. He supports the passing of a constitutional amendment guaranteeing equality under federal, state, and territorial law for all people, explicitly regardless of sex, gender identity, or sexual orientation. He supports homosexual marriage, and is opposed to the death penalty. He favors sustainable energy, and seeks to legislate an end what he calls the “non-emergency-based use” of such energy sources as fossil fuels and nuclear fission. He does call for a balanced federal budget, but wishes to accomplish this through reductions in military spending and corporate tax reform.

Roberts is likely to be an attractive candidate to people on the left side of the political spectrum, especially those particularly concerned with animal rights. However, he will be challenged to find any right-wing support at all, and his advocacy of such policies as meat elimination and animal personhood may present problems in securing even centrist or moderate backing.
