David Boarman was born and raised in Dallas County of Dallas, Texas, but now resides in Oceanside, California. Following high school, he enlisted for six years in the US Army. Though he spent more than half of that time stationed domestically, he was deployed for nearly three years in Berlin, Germany, where he was when news came down that the Berlin Wall was falling. Though he makes no mention of any higher education, he worked in various odd jobs and professional careers following his time in the military. When he relocated to California in 2011, it was to accept a role as a Software Engineer.
Boarman does not use the term himself, but he is what many would call a “born-again” Christian. That is to say, he was raised to believe in Christianity and he did, but he laments that he frequently did not live in accordance with his religious beliefs, until a family crisis on which he does not elaborate brought him to a spiritual awakening in 2012. Today, his Christian faith is extremely strong – in fact, he is running for President because he believes it is God's will that he do so.
Boarman is a solidly conservative presidential candidate. He is tough on immigration, supporting expedited arrest and deportation of illegal immigrants and the institution of English as the official language of the United States. He calls for removal of federal regulation from both health care and education, leaving those issues to be addressed by the states. He supports a “full reformation” of the tax code, with a federal sales tax for individuals and a flat tax rate for businesses and corporations. He is also extremely accommodating towards religion, declaring that no institution or organization may infringe on the people's religious liberties, while simultaneously, no private business should be required to provide services contrary to the spiritual beliefs of its owners.
Boarman is friendly towards the Tea Party, though he does not personally identify as a member of that group. On his official campaign website, he links to the “Tea Party Community”, a message board which he maintains and on which he is a frequent contributor.
With strong right-wing policies and at least an attraction to the Tea Party, Boarman is a solid pick for voters of a conservative political bent. His plans for deregulation and tax reform, however, are likely to make him unsuitable to anyone left of center.
