Is The World Ready For Michael Oatman for President? Is Michael Oatman For President Ready For The World?
In Tucson, a “computer and internet services consultant” named Michael Oatman ran for President in 2012. You probably missed his campaign while blinking. He ran for the Green Party nomination, but didn’t get close to earning as much support as Jill Stein. Like Jill Stein, Michael Oatman is throwing his hat into the ring again for the 2016 presidential election.
“My platform is about being fiscally conservative and socially progressive,” he writes. “We desperately need massive political reform. I would spend much more on education, less on defense, more on research for developing new technologies which can bring us energy independence, and we can re-tool our manufacturing industries to that end.”
Michael Oatman wasn’t always with the Green Party. In 2008, he ran for President as a Democrat. Who knows what party Oatman will run with this time?
The Libertarian Party seems not to be beyond consideration for Mr. Oatman, who wrote in 2012 that “you are voting against your self-interests if you vote for anyone except Gary Johnson (L) or Jill Stein (G)… Vote Gary Johnson (L) in 2012! I’ll be running again in 2016!”
