Cecil Anthony Ince was born in Fort Worth, Texas and currently resides in Irving of the same state. He is the owner of Ince Films, a film production company in Irving, and accordingly, his associate's degree is in the performing arts. He is married and has one child, a son.|
Ince is a declared Libertarian candidate and self-proclaimed Jeffersonian. As such, he favors extremely limited government and the maximum possible personal liberty of the people. People's responsibility is a major concern of his, in fact, and while he dislikes both the Republican and Democrat parties, he is not bashful about blaming the people at large and their ignorance for the economic troubles of the United States. He opposes the American fiat currency, though does not specifically call for a reliance on the gold standard. In his focus on personal liberty and accountability, Ince is wary of the practice of eminent domain, tolerating the seizing of private land for public use only because it is recognized by the Constitution, while calling for the prohibition of reallocating land for use by other private parties. He believes in repealing property taxes, as well.
On the issue of foreign policy, Ince opposes the US behaving as world policemen, and blames the policy for needless expense and tarnishing of the American image abroad. He strongly believes in the United States as a sovereign, independent nation, and is concerned about trends toward world unification that he fears are taking hold at the United Nations. Ince is against the USA Patriot Act, believing that it sacrifices personal liberty in the name of security – a compromise he finds unacceptable.
Ince is far from his goals. Aiming for a total of $25,000 in contributions for his presidential campaign, at last report, he had collected only a fraction of this amount. Nevertheless, he is determined, and his candidacy is likely to find support among his Libertarian brethren.
