2016 Libertarian Presidential Candidate

Veteran and Spiritual Visionary

Barbara Joy Waymire
Born: June 11th, 1952  (age 63)
Joy Waymire resides in California, where she graduated from high school and attended college without completing a degree. She holds a certificate as a Paralegal, however, and has served in the Army.

Waymire is a deeply spiritual person, saying that she learned her faith as a child from a friend only she could see, called Becky. Her mother dismissed this phenomenon as a typical imaginary playmate, but today, as an adult, Waymire still believes Becky was real. She also believes that God has supernaturally intervened in her life on numerous occasions, including by manifesting several graphic and painful stigmata on her head, hands, feet, and side. Having once suffered from Hepatitis C, astigmatism, diabetes, thyroid disease, and rheumatoid arthritis, among a host of other tragic conditions that had her confined to a wheelchair, she says that she has been miraculously healed of all, with doctors unable to offer any rational medical explanation.

Running as a Libertarian, however, Waymire does not support the legislation of morality. She believes in an extremely limited federal government whose purpose is solely to provide for the defense of the nation and its citizens, while adequately funding only very few agencies necessary to accomplish this task. She believes that the government currently draws sufficient revenue to complete this job, and that it is entirely feasible to run it without deficit.

In fact, Waymire opposes virtually all government action in the private sector and private life. She believes it is no place of government to involve itself in the institution of marriage, even to issue marriage licenses (though she personally states that marriage is between the Lord and “a male and female soul”). She believes government interference in health care, and even the advent of insurance companies, have caused health costs to skyrocket. She also speaks against government grants, government management of education, and drug laws. On the issue of illegal immigration, she advocates for a path to citizenship for those currently present in the US illegally while deporting those choosing not to become citizens, and an end to assumed citizenship for children born within the nation's borders. She does not support increased border patrols or the construction of border fences.

Waymire's politics are pleasing to just about any Libertarian ear, making her a good fit not only for adherents of that party but also for many fiscal and social conservatives among Republicans. However, her profoundly supernatural mindset could easily be viewed as irrational by many, raising questions about her clarity of thought and vision.
