Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Former college football coach and 2012 presidential candidate
Declared Democratic 2016 Candidate Robby Wells
    (age 47)
The former football coach turned public servant is a moderate libertarian seeking the Democratic Party’s nomination in 2016. Wells has made it clear that he isn’t afraid to call out politicians on both sides of the aisle. He finished third for the Constitution Party’s nomination in 2012.

Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Former Governor of Maryland
Declared Democratic 2016 Candidate Martin O'Malley
    (age 52)
There’s probably only a handful of serving governors that could rival Gov. O’Malley’s success in Maryland. Aside from overseeing a 40% reduction in crime rate, his successful legislative agenda, most notably recognition for same-sex marriages, bears testament to the fact.

Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Professor of Law
Declared Democratic Presidential Candidate  Larry Lessig
    (age 54)
Other candidates spend a lot of time telling you about their policies and intentions should they win the presidency, and understandably so – but not Larry Lessig. The self-styled “referendum candidate” has only one issue: The passing of a fundamental reform bill. Once that's done, he says, he's out, and his Vice President can take over.

Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
CIA and U.S. Envoy with G4 Classification
Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate Doug Shreffler
    (age 55)
Doug Shreffler is not a career politician but a man of optimism with a goal of cross-party unification. His distinctive perspective was born from his lifelong service to our country in foreign affairs with the CIA and as a US envoy with G4 Classification.

Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Attorney, Community Leader, Advocate for the Elderly and Disabled
Declared Democratic Presidential Candidate Michael Steinberg
    (age 56)
Michael Steinberg has built a career advocating for those left behind. He has entered the race for President to bring attention to the issues that are not being addressed and to advocate for those forgotten in Washington, especially the elderly, the disabled and our Veterans.

Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
BBC's World Historic Figure for Anti-GMO Activism
Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate Andy Caffrey
    (age 58)
A strong environmentalist and advocate against genetically modified organisms, Andy Caffrey is the first Democratic candidate to run on a platform of truly green politics. He is an accomplished and passionate man with campaign experience, and has turned his focus to the White House.

Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Former U.S. Senator and Governor from Rhode Island
Declared Democratic 2016 Candidate Lincoln Chafee
    (age 62)
Lincoln Chafee has served various roles in politics as Republican, Independent, and Democrat. His policies defy strict labeling, which has made it hard for him to build a camp and may hamper his 2016 presidential campaign bid.

Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Information Manager
Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate Brad Winslow
    (age 63)
Brad Winslow believes the federal government is a business owned by the American people – a business whose managers are insufficiently accountable to their bosses. He reveals few of his policy ideas, but he's passionate about one goal: The “Public House Amendment” to the constitution.

Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate Lloyd Kelso
    (age 64)
Born to poverty, Kelso is no stranger to hard work. He believes the middle class has been disenfranchised in modern America, and feels it's important to rectify that by lowering or eliminating taxes on the less fortunate. Socially, however, he sojourns to the right on foreign policy and Second Amendment issues.

Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Chicago businessman, philanthropist and recording artist
Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate Willie Wilson
    (age 67)
Willie Wilson is a classic rags-to-riches American success story. The poor Louisiana boy who fled conditions he considered to be virtual slavery and once worked as a janitor for $2 an hour eventually came to own the stores he used to mop. Now, a self-made man, he brings a liberal voice to the presidential race.

Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Former U.S. Secretary of State, U.S. Senator and First Lady
Declared Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton
    (age 67)
Others' names have been spoken, but Hillary Rodham Clinton is still the current frontrunner for the Democratic nomination in 2016. As she takes her place in the public spotlight, it appears she's assumed the role, for her party and in history.

Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Veteran, author, former Senator from Virginia and bi-partisan lawmaker
Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate Jim Webb
    (age 69)
Jim Webb is a decorated veteran, accomplished author and former Senator who often worked across party lines. Webb worked in the administration of Republican President Ronald Reagan, and served as a Democratic Senator after defeating incumbent GOP Senator George Allen of Virginia.

Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Small-business owner, Deacon and Sunday School Superintendent
Declared Democratic 2016 Candidate Willie Carter
    (age 72)
This retired USAF member and father of nine definitely brings something different to the table. Carter is in his eighth consecutive run for the Presidency, which he entered because he was “commanded of the Lord to enter the race to become President of the United States of America”.

Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Junior U.S. Senator from Vermont and Former Mayor of Burlington, Vermont
Declared Democratic Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders
    (age 75)
Generally regarded as a Democrat, Sanders is in fact the longest-serving Independent in the history of the United States Congress. Having held office as both Vermont's at-large congressional representative and Mayor of the city of Burlington, he is currently the sitting junior Senator of Vermont.

Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Job Creator
Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate Howell Astor
    (age unknown)
If you ask Howell Astor, unemployment is the biggest problem facing America. He wants to do something about that, by putting people back to work and stopping the flow of American jobs to China. He also doesn't have many nice things to say about Hillary Clinton, and he's a Democrat today because he wanted to take her on.

Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Executive Director – Bonpasse Exoneration Services
Declared Democratic 2016 Candidate Morrison Bonpasse
    (age unknown)
A trained legal expert with deep concerns about the American prison system, Bonpasse runs a nonprofit organization that seeks to exonerate the wrongfully convicted. He's also globally-minded, putting humanity first in a way not often seen in prospective American presidents.

Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Whistle Blower
Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate Jeff Boss
    (age unknown)
Fairly mundane liberal politics with a few conservative leanings are couched in a superlatively suspicious mind in Jeff Boss. He believes that the NSA is bugging his phone and trying to poison him in an effort to cover up the truth about 9/11, but Democrats would find little extreme about most of his policy standings.

Declared 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Senior Scientist
Declared Democratic Presidential Candidate Harry Braun
    (age unknown)
Deeply concerned about environmental disaster, Harry Braun looks to the construction of arcologies for shelter from the coming chaos. He also worries about bribery and corruption in government, and seeks a Constitutional Convention to pass an amendment giving direct control to the American people.

 Potential Democratic Party Presidential Candidates 
Potential 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
U.S. Senator from Massachusetts
Potential Democratic 2016 Candidate Elizabeth Warren
    (age 66)

When conservatives speak of the beauty and dignity of Americans achieving greatness from humble beginnings, it is ironic that they are describing – among others – the life story of the very liberal Elizabeth Warren. From humble beginnings as a waitress, she has risen to become Senior Senator of Massachusetts.

Potential 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Current Vice-President of the United States
Possible 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden
    (age 72)

Prior to his election as VP, Mr. Biden was already one of the most influential men in Washington, chairing the powerful Foreign Relations and Judiciary committees for a record-breaking three terms each. The ex-Delaware Senator is also the 15th-longest serving Senator in history.

Presidential Candidates 2016
Pawel Kuczynski
To preserve freedom of political expression, the electorate must be both free to choose and adequately informed. There are over 1000 presidential candidates registered with the FEC for the 2016 election. Most of these officially declared candidates are marginalized or completely ignored by mainstream media and lack the benefit of unlimited spending by Super PAC’s.

We profile all official candidates, from all political parties, on a level platform. Some may be nutcases, but most are respectable individuals with legitimate positions on the issues. Any officially registered candidates not included may be fictitious, or have insufficient available information from which to build a profile.

We don’t know if any of these candidates would make a better president than a career politician, just as there's no guarantee that any of the 2016 campaign promises will actually be kept.

Word of mouth and today's web of social networks empower 'We the People' to promote a candidate more effectively than any media conglomerate, and subsequently scrutinize their every detail in thousands of national online platforms.

Take a look at the candidates, visit their websites and if you find them worthy of being given a chance, share their candidacy with friends and family.

May the best person win!
