Here's the (revised) ticket - American Solidarity Party in 2016

Not happy about having "only" Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump as your presidential choices? Consider the candidates of the American Solidarity Party.

On July 9, 2016, the American Solidarity Party nominated Dr. Amir Azarvan for President of the United States and Mike Maturen for Vice-President.
Dr. Azarvan is an assistant professor of political science at Georgia Gwinnett College, where he teaches American foreign policy and American government. Born in Youngstown, OH, of Iranian parents, he is an Orthodox Christian. He is the editor of Re-Introducing Christianity: An Eastern Apology for a Western Audience. He has been married for over 12 years, and has three daughters. As a candidate, he is committed to the defense of life from conception to natural death, to an ethical economic system in which those who contribute to the wealth of their society enjoy a fairer share of it, to the traditional family, to educational reform that focuses on the cultivation of virtue, and to a just and humane foreign policy.
Mr. Maturen pursued a nearly 30-year career in sales and marketing. He is a professional speaker and the author of a weekly devotional entitled A New Dawn: Weekly Wisdom From Everyday Life. He is also a professional magician and a District Deputy for the Michigan Jurisdiction of the Knights of Columbus. Mr. Maturen describes himself as a social conservative and a fiscal moderate. Formerly a Republican, his current views have been influenced by Pope Francis, who, in his words, "pointed out the need for Christians to not just talk about the poor, but actually to do something about it."
I know for whom I'm voting.

ADDED: Alas, Azarvan had to withdraw. Maturen is now the Presidential candidate, and Juan Munoz is the Vice-Presidential candidate.

Pax et bonum

Maturen is apparently now their candidate. I noted that in a post above, but the original presidential candidate ran into a conflict with his university employer.
