Declared 2016 



Entrepreneur


Jeremiah Pent was born in Arlington, Texas, and raised in Fort Worth. After graduating from high school and marriage, he and his family moved several times around the country, and currently reside in Pennsylvania. He briefly studied at Texas Christian University, but would eventually earn his Masters Degree (in Divinity) from the Westminster Theological Seminary. Professionally, he is an entrepreneur, having founded and run several businesses in a number of industries including agriculture and toy manufacturing.

Pent speaks in broad terms of the need to address the social and economic issues facing the US. He believes the biggest problem currently plaguing the nation is its own lack of unity, and that all other challenges can more easily be overcome if the divisions between religious and ethnic groups can be ameliorated. Other than admitting that this will be a difficult (but achievable) task, however, he offers few specifics on how it might be accomplished. Economically, he favors a balanced budget, advocating the maintenance of a federal government that operates within its means just as, he says, average American families must do. He believes this goal can be reached through middle class tax cuts and a careful restructuring and streamlining of the government's operations.

Pent is particularly preoccupied with the American educational system and its importance to the nation's children, and speaks at length of ensuring that schools are staffed by competent teachers able to properly guide and instruct their students. Once again, however, he is sparse on describing any specific changes which he feels should be made to or by the schools.

An independent candidate, Pent worries over the stark dichotomy between Republicans and Democrats, and claims that these two parties collectively represent only about a third of the American population. He points out the fact that George Washington, the nation's first President, was himself an independent, and that many Presidents immediately following him also did not formally belong to any political party. Concerned about the influence wielded over politicians by wealthy donors, Pent has pledged to accept campaign contributions only from individuals, not rich supporters who act through Political Action Committees and super PACs.

Due to Pent's reluctance to discuss his specific policy ideas, it is difficult to evaluate which voting demographics would be most likely to support and oppose him.

Declared 2016 



Conservative Christian and 2012 presidential candidate
Born: April 12th, 1975  (age 41)


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.
