Former 2016 Independent Presidential Candidate

Strong Believer in the Middle Road

Mark Joseph Dutter
Born: unknown
Having become disenfranchised with both major political parties, Mark J Dutter believes a president is needed who is flexible enough to work with Republicans and Democrats alike while remaining free enough not to cow to either. Preferring a centrist political philosophy that avoids extremism, he sees failure in both established political platforms.

On the Democratic side, he is a staunch opponent of the Affordable Care Act, which he considers a 100% overhaul of a system in which only 15% of people needed help and has resulted in far greater problems than existed before. Why, he asks, were not simply the 15% targeted for help? He also blames the Left for holding capitalism as slave to socialism, accusing them of tolerating the former only to service and provide for the latter. They hold that the American Dream is, in fact, not among the basic rights of Americans, and that if one does manage to achieve it, they have become as villains and must be taxed into submission.

Republicans, Mr. Dutter maintains, are no better. In the aftermath of the passing of the Affordable Care Act, when they took control of the House of Representatives and had a chance to affect real, positive change, they instead voiced useless outrage by passing one-sided laws that were hopeless of clearing the Senate or reaching the President's desk. Further, billing themselves as the party of the Constitution, they flagrantly ignore judicially established constitutional rights, such as a woman's right to choose an abortion. They promote the inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, yet do not support that happiness if it comes through the love of a person of the same gender.

Mark Dutter crafts a political platform that is a blend of traditional Republican and Democrat thinking, while avoiding the extremes of each. A strong supporter of a woman's right to choose and gay rights, he also believes in strict fiscal responsibility and the right of every single person to become whomever they want to be. With strong opinions on foreign policy, he maintains that America should watch what it says but keep to its word, that it may be respected and looked up to by others. His ideal America is one that passes laws reflecting that which its people believe, is honorable and true, and compassionate enough to help others while remaining sensible enough to prioritize America first.
