On May 1st, 2020 I officially defected from the Republican party and discontinued my experiment into the Presidential Primary process for one of the two political parties which our mediocrity revolves upon. Despite being near the top of the FECs list of registered Republican candidates throughout 2019, I didn't draw any mainstream media recognition.
The new goal of this Presidential experiment is becoming an Independent under the banner of a new political party, the “Logic Party” which I am founding today, May 1st, 2020.
On the FEC website, filtering the registered candidates for President to viewing “Independents,” I am fourth from the top out of 225 Independent candidates.
Becoming a recognized party by the FEC is a simple formality, but each state has their own formalities which parties must jump through and maintain in order to receive recognition.
The Libertarian and Green parties are good examples of parties that have jumped through all the hoops required by states to receive ballot placement.
Yet despite having an Electoral College (EC) probability of potentially receiving enough EC votes to become President, these two parties aren't allowed on the debate stage unless they receive a least a 15% 'popularity' in five mainstream media poles.
That rule was made by the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) which is run by the Republican and Democrat parties. These two parties collude to keep out dialogue from other parties whom have an EC probability to win the election but aren't allowed to participate in the Debates because of the difficulty to breakthrough the glass-ceiling of mainstream status-quo mediocrity.
The CPD was formed in 1987 when the League of Women Voters wouldn't cave to the demands from the two-major parties that wanted to create new rules to limit which candidates were allowed to participate in the Presidential Debates.
The League withdrew their responsibility to oversee the Debates, which, unfortunately opened the door for the so-called bi-partisan CPD oligopoly to take control.
I alone will be unable to complete all the required paper-work formalities for each state to be a recognized Party or Independent, the next option is to become a write-in candidate for the Presidential election.
However, to be an eligible write-in, candidates must file some sort of paperwork with thirty-three states, while nine states don't even allow write-in candidates, and the remaining eight don't require any filings for write-in votes to be officially recognized.
The barriers to entry are grim, but David did beat Goliath.
