2012′s model-in-chief

Google Andre Barnett.

The presidential candidate you’ve never heard of is also the candidate of whom you have now seen the most. Nevertheless, Barnett proves that abs and brains are not exclusive qualities.

A military veteran and entrepreneur (founder of the IT company WiseDome Inc.), the 35 year-old candidate told The Daily Caller that he is the one to get the country back on track.

How?

By getting back to the nation’s founding and bringing faith back into the public sphere.

“We have to get back to our roots,” he said. “We’re falling away from [Biblical values]. And I believe that’s why we’re actually falling, not only in our national society, but in the international community as well. We’re starting to fail, and we need to get back to our roots.”

Barnett is running as an Independent because he hates the rancor of party politics. (Perry likely to jump in this summer)

“If you go hard-line Republican or hard-line Democrat, you become very partisan, and I just won’t take that,” he said. “I don’t want to be looked at as right wing or left wing.”

Barnett is socially conservative, but more liberal when it comes to economic policies. Among the issues most important to him is education, which he says has deteriorated to unacceptable levels – because public schools have eliminated God entirely from the curriculum. According to Barnnett, what really ought to be eliminated is the Department of Education.

“The Department since being brought online has worked toward implementing a curriculum cleansed of religious, patriotic, and other features of the ‘bourgeois ideology,’ as stated by the Communist Party of America,” Barnett’s website reads. “It has provided for teachings based on Marxian thought, dialectical materialism, internationalism, and the general ethics of a socialistic society.”

Indeed while Barnett wants to implement serious policy, the risque photos from his modeling career could detract from the gravity of his campaign. He is hopeful that the American people will vote for him for his policies and good works, not his looks.

“[I]t’s not about the image, the way you look,” Barnett said. “It’s about what you’re going to implement, the processes you’ll put in place, and what you have in store for the American people, what can they expect, and how trustworthy can you be, how much are they going to trust you.”

Barnett filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission nearly 60 days ago. His campaign is currently self-funded and has 12 staffers.

    Cain made his endorsement regarding Nate months ago so Cain had plenty of time to reconsider, or waffle like he does repeatedly.

    A few years ago I was a campaign manager for two Repub candidates, today however I can no longer support the GOP at all. Realizing the fact that both parties are directly controlled by the UN Council on Foreign Relations, a vote for either party (including the lessor of two evils) is a vote for the UN to remain in control of our government leaders and of both parties.

    Its time to vote AMERICAN, not UN. I’m not telling you who to vote for but why you need to exit stage right from the 2 party system and vote AMERICAN, not UN. Regardless of what platform the candidate claims to follow, the UN CFR in that party ultimately decides who will win and what their platform will eventually be after they are elected. The electoral college tally chooses the winner, not the popular vote. The popular vote is a distraction from reality, has nothing to do with reality. The UN owned CFR is the real power behind our government that makes the big decisions, then adjusts the puppet strings.

    DON’T pay any attention to what politicians say, focus on what they SIGN! That is the reason Andre is not a Democrat, reason I’m not a GOP, Grand Old Phart. We are independents, so the CFR or any party does not control or curtail our political ambitions and beliefs. Being an independent means having the freedom to express and promote your political ideology, not having to toe the party line. If you are focused on freedom, why are you in a party?

    Socially conservative and financially liberal? A dark-skinned version of Obama?

      If you have ever listened to this guy, you would see he definitely isn’t fiscally liberal. This guy is definitely a visionary and in his words “has his eye on the prize”. I had a chance to listen to him in person and ask questions. You may want to get to one of his events. It is worth it. When he starts taking contributions, I will support him support him.
