Orlando, FL, September 03, 2016 –(PR.com)– “Rocky” Roque De La Fuente has launched a new presidential campaign. The former candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination is continuing to run for that position but, this time, as an independent with multiple parties backing him. What makes his candidacy unique is that he is not necessarily running to win but rather to expose the need for major election reform.
De La Fuente said, “I understand that the odds of me winning the presidency are remote. However, there is a crisis in our country that will continue to go unaddressed if someone doesn’t stand up and say something about it.”
He continued, “You aren’t being given a legitimate choice of candidates, and in very many ways, your vote doesn’t count. We’re at a point where we need to restore Democracy.”
De La Fuente has posted three blogs on his website that expose the challenges that confronted him in the Democratic primary: a denial of ballot access, election manipulation, and election fraud. His website also lists a variety of solutions he is proposing to rectify each of these issues.
When asked why he is running if he knows he can’t win, De La Fuente says, “It’s not about me. It’s about the American people. The parties have stripped away the power of their vote, and I’m not going to let that continue without a fight.”
In that regard, De la Fuente noted, “Senator Sanders didn’t experience the ballot access or election manipulation issues that I did, but he did experience the election fraud. I had hoped he would use his position to expose what happened, but he withdrew from cause. I can’t do that because the issue is too important.”
De La Fuente has also been gathering party nominations to expand his ballot access. The Reform Party and the new American Delta Party have already named him as their presidential candidate. He says he will continue to reach out to other parties for their support as well.
In many ways, De La Fuente is reminiscent of the Reform Party’s first candidate, Ross Perot. De La Fuente is not a career politician, but he is a very successful businessman who has created thousands of jobs across the country. He brings a pragmatic perspective with him much like Perot.
According to the Green Papers, De La Fuente has already qualified on 17 state ballots; a number that is only exceeded by the nominees of the Democratic, Republican, Libertarian, Green and Conservation Parties. He hopes that his single issue initiative will attract additional support amoung Bernie Sanders’ supporters who have been disappointed by the Senator’s lack of interest in bringing the issue of election reform to the forefront.
“Rocky” Roque De La Fuente is living proof that the American Dream can be achieved by those who are inspired to pursue it. He has an amazing record of overcoming obstacles and achieving success. From being licensed by the FAA to fly single engine planes at the age of 20 to owning 28 automobile dealerships and becoming Chairman of the National Dealers Council for the third largest automobile manufacturer in the world by the age of 28, Rocky is in a league by himself. He also created a banking network in 1982 to help address an economic crisis in Mexico and established impressive real estate holdings throughout the United States while generating thousands of new jobs along the way. Rocky holds a bachelor’s degree in Physics and Mathematics (Magna Cum Laude) and exudes a passion for his country and for those who seek the opportunity to fulfill their version of the American Dream.
