FoxNews.com is not exactly known for its friendliness towards third party or independent candidates. However, they published this extensive profile of several third party primary candidates who will be on the ballot in California. Amongst the candidates profiles are Green Party candidate Roseanne Barr, American Independent Party candidate Edward Noonan, and Socialist Party candidate Stewart Alexander.
There’s no such conflict for American Independent Party candidate Ed Noonan.
“Most people have just thrown up their hands in the air and say, no, we have to vote for the lesser of two evils,” Noonan declared. “If you vote for the lesser of two evils, you will still get evil.”
The computer store owner lives north of Sacramento and says today’s American Independent Party is what the Republican Party used to be and is far more conservative than when George Wallace was its standard-bearer in 1968.
“We have a strong inkling that the Constitution matters, that everything we do should apply to the Constitution,” he said.
Noonan’s campaign is threadbare and wanting for recognition. He’s only qualified for the California contest, because, he says, “you need people to get off their heinie” to collect the signatures needed to make the ballot in other states.
Nonetheless, Noonan, who has been unsuccessful in filing lawsuits questioning Obama’s birthplace, sees it as his duty to run.
“There’s not very many people in the American Independent Party that believe we have a chance,” he said. “And I’m one of the very few that’s willing to say, if not me, who?”
The profiles are fairly extensive for each candidate, with multiple quotes from each candidate explaining their positions.
