Former 2016 Independent Presidential Candidate

Woman of Faith

Born: unknown
Shawna Sterling lives in the state of Kentucky. Other than that fact, she offers little personal information about herself, such as her city and state of birth, employment background, or education credentials. She has an unshakeable religious faith and speaks often and at length of God and His plans and intentions for humanity. She credits God with the creation of life (and much else), and charges that the “enemy of God” wishes to destroy that life.

Sterling is a strong opponent of the use of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) in food. She blames GMOs for the childhood obesity epidemic, and in fact was greatly disturbed by a conversation she had with a young boy and girl, in which she learned that cake and ice cream were no longer being served to school children (as she home schools her own daughter, she says, she did not know this), and that they were among the foods implicated in causing obesity among kids. She accuses the Obama administration of knowing full well that GMOs are at fault for this problem, even as it works to “indoctrinate” children into blaming sweets. She has specifically promised that if elected (she uses the term “when”), she will ensure that cake and ice cream are again available in schools, and that they will be produced organically, without the use of GMOs.

Sterling is strictly pro-life on abortion, arguing that even human zygotes born on US soil are citizens of the United States and therefore cannot constitutionally be deprived of life without due process of law. She specifically objects to the use of taxpayer money to fund abortions, and promises that she will work to end this practice as President.

Economically, Sterling supports balancing the budget. She believes that this can be accomplished by defunding “nonproductive programs”, without going into detail. However, she specifically rules out the reduction of defense spending and the increase of any and all taxes in service of the goal.

Sterling is a likeable, conservative woman of faith who is likely to appeal to voters right of center. Even left-wing Americans may find some appeal in her rigid stance against GMOs, though they are not likely to approve of her views on abortion.

Note: Shawna Sterling amended her statement of candidacy with the FEC on July 14, 2015. She
was originally running as a Republican Party candidate and is now running as an independent candidate.
