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.

Educator and Man Of Faith


Mark C. Pendleton has a singular focus to give the American people their government back. As an educator, husband, father and man of faith, he has lived the life that most Americans can identify with. He has enjoyed many successes but also encountered crushing failures. His is a story the average citizen can identify with and he is determined to use his time in the White House to reconnect American to the day to day activities of the government that represents them.

Pendleton was moved to take action and enter the political world after becoming increasingly frustrated with how power has been centralized in Washington. What was most frustrating to him was the fact that so many Americans seem to be ok giving distant officials so much power over their lives. He has also marveled at how these officials become increasingly distant from the people they serve, and how very few of them can actually identify with the daily struggles of ordinary Americans.

A Mark C. Pendelton Presidency would last only one term, by design, so that he can concentrate on fixing the problems Americans face and not have to spend every second distracted by thoughts of re-election. Pendleton feels that one term is enough time to get the American people re-engaged in their government and, once that happens, solutions to the many problems facing the country will appear. His administration will harken back to that of John F. Kennedy who famously proclaimed, “Ask Not What Your Country Can Do For You, Ask What You Can Do For Your Country!”

Pendelton is running on a platform of economic recovery, a balanced budget within ten years, a strong yet fair approach to illegal immigration, strong regulation of the credit markets, a flat tax policy that dismantles much of the IRS and education reform that empowers children and their parents. All of his initiatives require the active participation of the American people because he firmly believes that when patriots take action America thrives.
