Declared 2016 



Veteran and Electrical Servicing Business Owner


Arthur Drew was born in the state of Pennsylvania, in a rural farming and industrial community. After graduating from high school, he enlisted in the US Air Force, where he attended college while stationed in Washington state. He was also deployed for about a year to Vietnam. When his service was finished, he entered the private sector, initially focusing on aviation but eventually settling into the electrical servicing and manufacturing industry, in which he owned his own business.

Running as an Independent, Drew is critical of both Republican and Democratic policies, and he frequently speaks against President Obama's initiatives. He challenges the President's assertion that unemployment has dropped by nearly half since 2009, saying that their calculations flagrantly ignore those who have given up finding a job, and were made entirely for political gain. He also accuses the administration, and for that matter every administration and Congress in recent memory, of having service to corporate sector profits as their one and only goal.

Drew blames the phenomenon of outsourcing for the decline in American employment and the stagnation of domestic wages. He proposes the imposition of penalties on businesses that outsource labor overseas, with an emphasis on ensuring that these penalties cost more than a firm stands to save by shipping the jobs away. He also suggests using lower taxes, reduced interest loans, and other incentives to encourage companies to do business in the United States.

While he is sympathetic to environmental concerns and supports the Environmental Protection Agency's overall mission, Drew criticizes that agency's overly complex regulations, calling them confusing and saying they could leave private land owners unaware of whether they need to seek permits to modify their property. He calls for stronger oversight of the EPA to reduce its bureaucracy and provide clear, simple guidelines.

Drew is cautious on foreign policy, questioning American involvement in the Middle East and specifically against the terrorist group ISIS. He says that President Obama's commitment to help fight that organization will be felt well into his successor's administration, and he cautions that America's military should instead be used to secure the border at home.

Drew's strategy of using tax incentives to stimulate domestic business and industry is a conservative trait, while his support for government agencies like the EPA and his careful approach toward foreign policy are more leftist. As a result, most of his support is likely to be found among those in the center, who avoid politically veering far onto either side of the spectrum.

Declared 2016 



Conservative Christian and 2012 presidential candidate
Born: April 12th, 1975  (age 42)


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.
