Citizen, entrepreneur, advocate for equal treatment for all


Samm Tittle’s political philosophy can be summed up in one short phrase: “Equal Treatment For All, Because No One Is Above The Law.” This uniquely American notion is the common thread in all of Tittle’s policy positions. For this daughter of immigrants who grew up in a working class family in El Paso, Texas and who worked extremely hard to achieve the American Dream, making sure that everyone has a fair shot to succeed is very important.

Dividing her time between El Paso and Albuquerque, where she worked for her grandparents, brought Tittle into contact with people of many cultures, many of whom were immigrants trying to make their way in the United States and become loyal and productive American citizens. Tittle gained a great appreciation for these hard working immigrants and came to understand that most immigrants come to America not to take from it, but to give back to it.

Through hard work, Tittle became a successful entrepreneur and came to understand that if government was run like a well-oiled business the country and the economy would be in a much better place. For Tittle, jobs are the most important thing because with no job there is no freedom. When an individual has a job they are contributing members of society and many of the problems the country faces are solved.

Tittle is a strong advocate for fairness, equality, transparency and the rule of law. These are thing things she is passionate about. She is a firm believer that no one is above the law, and that we are all in the same boat. Her campaign will be centered on the promise to hold the government accountable for its actions and restore the trust between the American people and their government

Declared 2016 



Futurist, philosopher, speaker and journalist


Zoltan Istvan lives in Mill Valley, California. He attended and graduated from Columbia University, where he majored in Philosophy and Religious Studies, but he has had a diverse career as a journalist, businessman, and writer, among other professions. A man with a deep affection for science and technology and their potential for improving human life, he founded – and is running for President as the nominee of - the Transhumanist Party, whose platform endorses technological progress as its main priority, with the aim of enhancing the natural human body to undreamed of levels of performance. He is the published author of “The Transhumanist Wager”, a novel based upon his aspirations for augmenting humanity.

Istvan has been interviewed on numerous occasions about Transhumanism, including by FOX News and The Financial Times among a great many others, where he elaborates upon his and his party's leanings and intentions. He believes that by vastly increasing the resources available to research scientists, it will be possible to develop technologies capable of dramatically improving the human body. Istvan speaks of bionic eyes enabling blind people to see and mechanical limbs repairing those who have been maimed, but he goes further, suggesting that the eyes could be tuned to detect not only naturally visible light but infrared and ultraviolet radiation as well, and that the prosthetic arms and legs could be many times more powerful and dextrous than biological extremities. He is also particularly concerned with technological means of slowing, stopping, and eventually reversing the aging process, and boasts that should one trillion dollars be invested in the life-extension field, “we will conquer human mortality within ten years.”

In order to secure such substantial sums for his research goals, Istvan particularly targets defense spending for budget cuts, in order that those resources be redirected to human improvement. “Why should we have a war in Afghanistan,” he asks, “if we can have a war on cancer, or a war on heart disease?” He also calls out the Iraq War, arguing that even a fraction of the money spent on that conflict would have been enough to end death.

Beyond his Transhumanist policies, Istvan is generally left-leaning. He accepts the theory of global warming and believes that human activity is responsible for the changing climate, however he rejects any notion of slowing progress in order to address the problem. Instead, his solution is once again technology, as he calls for research into scientific methods of modifying the planet's climate to compensate for the damage humanity has caused. He also professes his personal atheism, though he is careful to point out that absence of religious faith is not a prerequisite to Transhumanist inclusion.

Especially due to his feelings toward military spending, an extremely hot-button issue among many conservatives, most of Istvan's political support is to be found left of center. Regardless, even he himself would likely agree the point is moot – he readily admits that as a third-party candidate, his chances of winning the election are virtually nonexistent, and says that he is running to increase awareness of the Transhumanist platform rather than because he hopes to attain the White House.
