Candidates Launch Campaigns
Keeping Track of Them

      This site was built and we were doing mailings to candidates who could not be contacted any other way when we realized this was like herding cats.  The number of candidates who register with the Federal Election Commission to run for President has steadily risen since 1992.  That is a significant election year because in 1992 a cranky bookkeeper, H. Ross Perot seemingly came out of nowhere to 38% in June.  This meant the lock the Republicans and Democrats had on the electoral system had been successfully challenged.  Read for the whole story.  
        American voters were growing increasingly dissatisfied with the candidates running for president.  In response, more people decided to run and more third parties were launched.  Think of the rise in the number of candidates and parties as indicative of what was becoming increasingly obvious to voters.  Something was rotten in DC and the smell was reaching out and offending Americans across the country.  
         At times, there were so many registering with the FEC it was hard to keep up with them, but we kept at it, issuing invitations to every one of them to debate the other candidates.  Since the MSM candidates and the MSM did not want to admit how many candidates were running all MSM candidates ignored us - or did not find out about the power of Interactive TV.  For example, John McCain did not know he could have won - if he had used our services.  See John McCain and Lamar Alexander , who did not learn about Interactive options because of Mike Murphy , a 'political consultant' who was actually working for the Bush Group.
         That is some of the back story explaining why we decided to launch Interactive TV, RAGtime TV, ourselves.  Below are the folks who decided they were going to do something about the meltdown of America THEMSELVES, the dauntless candidates.  Below are the graphs produced to show the increasing numbers of candidates, political parties, and links to the lists of candidates, as we obtained them.
