Welcome to Project White House!

Project White House is a bold new experiment in Reality Journalism.

More than one dozen of the Democrats on Arizona’s Feb. 5 presidential primary ballot, as well as nine of the GOP candidates, are participating in Project White House. These courageous men and women are putting forward their vision to lead our great nation. The candidates will compete in a variety of campaign challenges, with the ultimate winner in both parties capturing the coveted Tucson Weekly endorsement.

On this blog, the candidates in Project White House will have an opportunity to post press releases, official campaign statements and platform positions, as well as links to their own Web sites.

  2. fitz2008.org is the campaign website for republican presidential candidate john michael fitzpatrick, on the arizona ballot for the republican nomination in 2008.

    mr. fitzpatrick ran for the republican nomination for united states senate in oregon in 1998 placing second in a three way race with 27 percent of the vote statewide.

    he is a 43 year old financial consultant placing emphasis in his career on access to capital for small businesses to grow and create good paying jobs.

    our successful form of economic development.

    further foreign policy directives in the fitzpatrick administration will include real democratization in the middle east through recognition of the united states errors in favoring the sunni ruling minority over the shia oppressed majority leading to the demonization of iran and push for palestinian statehood in a public relations war for the leadership of islam.

  3. Charles Skelley is running for President of the US in the Arizona Republican primary, and proposing solutions to a wide variety of problems in the US.

    He aims to reduce the cost of Healthcare in the US to 11% of GNP (from its current status at 16% of GNP).

    “Unfunded Liabilities” have been paralyzing the Federal Government in recent years. Mr. Skelley will confront this problem, whereas the other Presidential candidates are ignoring the problem. A July 24, 2007 editorial in the Washington Times pointed out the Unfunded Liabilities of the Federal Government have reached $90 Trillion when expressed in 2007 dollars, and also pointed out that $90 Trillion is more than all the assets combined in the USA.

    quote from: http://www.washingtontimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070624/EDITORIAL/106240001

    ….now is a good time to talk about the $90 trillion Social Security and Medicare elephant in the room. It is a virtual certainty that both political parties will ignore it, at least until the next president is inaugurated 19 months from now. Oh, there will be rhetorical heat during the presidential and congressional campaigns. But in terms of substantive, responsible legislation passed by Congress and signed by the president, expect nothing — zilch.
    ….To appreciate the relative size of the $90 trillion in unfunded liabilities for Social Security and Medicare, consider four facts: (1) This year’s entire U.S. economic output, measured by its gross domestic product, will be $14 trillion. (2) Today, the total U.S. public debt outstanding (i.e., the “national debt”) is $8.8 trillion, which, despite having skyrocketed by $3.1 trillion (54 percent) since Mr. Bush entered office, is still less than 10 percent of the present value of the entitlement nightmare galloping toward us. (3) The total net worth (as of March 31) of all U.S. households and nonprofit organizations, including their stockholdings, corporate and Treasury bondholdings, housing equity, SUVs and high-definition plasma TVs, is $56.2 trillion. (4) The total market capitalization (number of stock shares times the share price) of the S & P 500 (the 500 leading U.S. corporations) was $12.7 trillion as of March 31.

    The bipartisan, presidential-congressional abdication of long-term fiscal responsibility that we shall witness over the next year and a half will be nothing less than incomprehensible.

  4. My purpose for a running as the Democratic candidate for president is to enlighten the public regarding the gravity of our environmental situation. Whether I am selected as the New Times endorsed candidate or the national Democratic party candidate matters little as long as I get the message out to the public that if current resource consumption trends continue unchecked, by the year 2050 humans will be using two times more resources than the Earth is able to regenerate or process. World Wildlife Fund scientists predict that if the resource consumption current trend remains unchanged by 2050 there be a catastrophic environmental event. Since mankind has not attained that milestone before, what the catastrophic environmental event will be exactly, remains to be seen … or not, it all depends on you.

    All of the other political issues pale by comparison to an Earth that can no longer sustain a human population. Anybody with children and grandchildren should seriously consider these predictions. 2050 is not that far away.

    What do we need to do in order to adjust the current trend of resource consumption? Develop alternate fuels for vehicles (i.e., hydrogen, electric, etc.), minimize industrial globalization (produce goods closer to the markets), eliminate coal and petroleum fired power plants (build more nuclear plants) promote wind and solar power generation, eliminate old seagoing vessels and replace them with energy efficient vessels (wind powered vessels), and drastically reduce carbon emissions.

    Failure to take drastic measures quickly will have catastrophic results.
