THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE LIST JUST KEEPS GROWING!
It seems that despite the fact that only a few of the Presidential candidates and political parties receive media coverage, there are people willing and persistent enough to throw their hat into the political ring and begin a campaign for the office of President of the United States of America.
As of Dec 24, 2015 there are many different political party’s listed and 1,452 registered presidential candidates registered with the Federal Election Commission (FEC), representing approximately 64 political parties.
It almost seems that running for office of the president is becoming a status symbol and many of these candidates are not serious contenders, considering the fact that the only parties who have a chance are Republican, Democratic and Independent parties. In my opinion many of these candidates just want bragging rights to say they ran for president, because It would take a proverbial miracle for any of these odd ball or off the wall parties to even have a chance, let alone have coverage of their campaign.
Again in my opinion to have this many candidates and only a select few who are held in the public view for consideration is a travesty. We should be more informed on who is running so we can make legitimate informed decisions on the most important office in America. This is an issue we should perhaps take a look at in the future instead of making a mockery of the race for the White-house.
