 3rd Parties & Independents

Presidential Election
Pawel Kuczynski

To preserve freedom of political expression, the electorate must be both free to choose and adequately informed. There are over 300 presidential candidates registered with the FEC for the 2016 election. Most of these officially declared candidates are marginalized or completely ignored by mainstream media and lack the benefit of unlimited spending by Super PAC’s.

We don’t know if these candidates would make a better president than a career politician, just as there's no guarantee that any of the campaign promises will actually be kept.

Word of mouth and today's web of social networks empower 'We the People' to promote a candidate more effectively than any media conglomerate, and subsequently scrutinize their every detail in thousands of national online platforms.

Take a look at the candidates, visit their websites and if you find them worthy of being given a chance, share their candidacy with friends and family.

May the best person win!
