Citizens Party Presidential Candidate List

This was sent to me by a Facebook friend:

Below is the current complete list of possible 2012 Citizens Party Presidential Candidates. This list includes declared candidates, likely candidates (already expressed some interest in seeking our nomination), and draft candidates (unknown if they have or will have any interest in seeking our nomination) submitted by our members. Draft Campaigns require citizen sponsors to complete the same petition requirements (on behalf of their draft candidate) as declared candidates. This list will be updated as we move towards 2012. We expect this list to change often. We expect many more declared, likely and draft candidates to be added to this list in the months ahead. We also expect many names to be withdrawn from this list in the weeks and months ahead. The Citizens Party does not endorse any of the candidates/ possible candidates listed below. We simply offer this beginning list to stimulate discussion and serious thinking about the kind of candidate that you might like to see compete for the Citizens Party nomination in 2012. Please include any additional names (serious replies only) with your comments.

    Just when did the new version of the Citizen’s Party begin? I haven’t heard anything about them.

    NewFederalist, look at the Citizens Party post below. It used to be the New American Independent Party, which was a child of the Reform Party. It was the branch of the Reform Party that was uncomfortable with the social issues conservatism of the Buchananite America First Party.

    Hedges writes a lot about the “defiant act” of voting for alternative candidates. With Nader getting old, maybe Hedges should throw his hat into the ring.

    I believe JAMES Hedges HAS thrown his hat into the ring… for the nomination of the Prohibition Party.

    As founder of the Citizens Party, I can safely say that the Citizens Party is not related to the Reform Party. None of our founders were involved in the reform party and non of our current leaders were ever involved in the Reform Party.
