Meet presidential candidates Rocky and Castle

WEAR — Sure you have heard of Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Gary Johnson and Jill Stein but did you know there are two other candidates on the presidential ballot?

Meet Darrell Castle and his running mate Scott Bradley. They are representing the Constitution Party in the 2016 presidential election. Castle is from Memphis Tennessee, his campaign tagline is “Charting America’s Course as a Free and Independent Nation.”

His campaign focused on the following issues:

  • Adhere to the Constitution – “Adherence to the Constitution brings liberty and ignoring and denigrating it brings tyranny.”
  • Withdrawal From The United Nations – “The very existence of the U.N. is an affront to liberty and human dignity.”
  • End the Federal Reserve – “Interest rates would no longer be tampered with, as lenders and borrowers would set their own rates.”
  • Agenda 21 – “Local elected representatives are being overshadowed by the establishment of non-elected boards, councils, planning commissions and regional governments.”
  • Pro-Life Stance – “I am the only candidate of any party that is 100% pro-life or even close to it.”

Next is “Rocky” Roque De La Fuente and his running mate Michael Steinberg. They are representing the Reform Party in the race to the White House.

Rocky is from San Diego, California. He says that he has been able to live the American dream and wants to see it continue.

“I am no longer running to win the presidency; I am running to preserve our Democracy.”

As a part of the Reform Party, he wanted to see an election reform focusing on concerns about ballot access, election manipulation and election fraud.

His campaign platform is as follows

  • Foreign Policy – Using resources to focus on the welfare of the citizens of the United States and only using military capabilities only when necessary to provide for the common defense
  • Resource Policy – “We need to build a cogent strategy that ultimately replaces non-renewable energy with renewable resources.”
  • Economic Policy – “A rational, balanced approach is in order; one that will require disciplined spending and intelligent tax reform.”
  • Defense Policy – “Nothing in the Constitution gives us the responsibility or authority to serve as the ‘police force’ of the world.”
  • Education – ““We have allowed competing forces to unduly influence our education system; forces that may not fundamentally share the same mission of providing the highest quality education to our children and young adults.”
  • Operations – “Our federal government is relatively behind the curve from a technological perspective.”
  • Ministerial – “Federal legislators have raided the coffers of Social Security and squandered taxpayer contributions on unrelated programs.”
