What's America thoughts on the choice of Independent candidates running?
These are potential nominees and the one nominee, so far I like Harvey myself. But thought I show them, as no one else will show them.
He is a Non-Traditional candidate that has recently emerged from the middle class.
He brings no political bragging rights, but brings a wealth of life and experiences on main street USA. An unknown man that can, bring back the respect we loss with the world. In college he was called a non-traditional student as a term used for older students that most raising a family, are employed, and have several life stressors that younger traditional students may not have to experience.
Virginian born Stewart Alexis Alexander is the perfect model of a concerned citizen. An average American turned political activist, the cleaning company owner and “automobile sales consultant” (as his filings for California’s 2006 Lieutenant Governor elections showed), is also the Chairperson for the Socialist Party of California as well as the Executive Director of the African American Civil Liberties Union.
Alexander, who once served as a reserve in US Air Force March Joint Air Reserve Base, will be participating in his fourth top-tier election following defeats in Los Angeles Mayoral (1989), California’s Lieutenant Governorship (2006), American Vice-President (2008) and California’s gubernatorial (2010) elections. His first brush with politics was back in a very non-Orwellian 1984, when he campaigned for the Democratic presidential nominee, Reverend Jesse Jackson.
Burck’s journey to fame began in 1997 when he won a radio contest in his hometown Cincinnati, with the prize being an appearance as an extra on the hit TV show, Baywatch. Despite his high hopes, the cameo lasted for all of two seconds. It appeared that the then 27-year old dream of a career in Hollywood was heading for a quick end. However, a concatenation of events that began from a suggestion of good friend and theatre agent Sid Craig, eventually resulted in the creation of The Naked Cowboy personae – a guitar totting, cowboy boots and hat wearing busker dressed in a Star-Spangled themed briefs.
And now, 14 years on, Burck is finally ready to take the next leap in his dream of becoming, in his own words, “the wealthiest person who has ever lived”. A tall order, you might say. But then again, we are talking about a man who reportedly sends a postcard monthly to everyone he has ever met in his life.
Charlie Crist became the 44th governor of Florida in January of 2007. He quickly established the Office of Open Government by Executive Order to make the government more accessible to the people. His main focus since taking office has been addressing the state’s high property taxes and insurance costs. Crist oversaw the largest tax cut in state history and passed Cover Florida Health Care plan to give affordable insurance to thousands of uninsured.
Crist attended Wake Forest University for two years. He obtained an undergraduate degree from Florida State University and a law degree from Cumberland School of law in Alabama in 1981. Passing his bar exam after two previous attempts, Crist accepted a position as counsel to Minor League Baseball in St. Petersburg, Florida. Politics attracted him but after a failed attempt at the Senate in 1986 he joined his then brother-in-law’s private law practice. In 1988 he became an aid to Senate candidate and eventual winner Connie Mack and he himself won a Senate seat in 1992.
Becky Rusher is a non-political non-party person. She freely expresses her dislike of career politicians that have forgotten why they are where they are. They are there because they got people to believe in them.
While Becky Rusher is not known she does have strong feelings on the issues. Becky’s main thought for running for president is to get others to realize they do not have to follow along with a certain party. She believes everyone is their own person and has valid ideas and those ideas should be put out there in the world. Whether by blog, emails, or running for president of a country.

Voting independent is mostly all I do, it amazes me that people still think the regular politicians are the only ones capable of doing things in office.
Edit: Oh Pumpkin, someday you'll realize it doesn't matter, Republican crap and Democrat crap is still crap.

Independent candidates may have good ideas, but they have no chance of winning. Often times they are used to siphon votes off of one of the two party candidates. When Bush was running against Clinton, Perot was used to as an independent candidate to get Clinton elected. He knew he wouldn't win, but he hated George Bush Sr. He could say all the right things to get some independent votes and throw the election away from Bush to Clinton.

Third Party candidates have never broken the barrier of
our current Two-Party candidate procedure. A vote for
any of the Independent candidates (no matter what
their philosophy) will not even be noticed by the media.

I'm against it. A vote for a third party candidate is a vote FOR Obama. Its a wasted vote. Removing Obama is more important than being principled and voting for any third party candidate. In November 2012, I will be voting for the Republican nominee regardless of who it is.Source(s): NOBAMA 2012.
