By Jalene Peralta, copy editor
The biggest trend in this presidential race seems to be non politicians running for office. One of these candidates is 15 year old Iowan Brady Olsen. Formally known as Deez Nuts, he is questioning the 2 party system of the United States.
Registered as an independent Deez Nuts first surfaced at an Iowan ballot on July 26, 2015. Quickly he gained national attention with his progressive views and his use of presidential satire. It wasn’t until late August that the nation found out the true identity of Deez Nuts.
Brady decided to run for president because he was frustrated with the fact that only two parties obtain presidency. According to the New York Times, Brady is aware that can’t legally run for president but he wanted “to clear the way for a third party movement”. He is also upset with the way the government is running and believes there is too much corruption.
While campaigning Brady, under the alias Deez Nuts, stated his core beliefs and how they would change the way America is working, and gained national attention.
He strongly believes that illegal aliens should leave the country as soon as possible, with the exception of minors. He doesn’t want American resources to go to people that not legal, or pay their fair share of taxes. However, he believes that minors should stay because they have been in America for so long, this is their home.
Deez Nuts is determined to reverse the debt the United States is in. He states that the best way to make America debt free again to make sure the country doesn’t spend more than it takes in. He advises that we reduce the salary of the president, the cabinet, and members of congress to relieve this debt. Currently, the United States spends about ten million dollars a year paying members of the Executive and Legislative branches.
He is pro life and supports gay marriage because he thinks that people of have right to decide what to do with their and life and body. “ I understand that people believe Christian religions outweighs government policy. But America is no longer mainly Christian. It is Christian, Jewish, Islam, Hebrew, and many others”. He doesn’t support the idea of having the Church and State intertwined.
If elected president, Deez Nuts would make America green. He supports solar panels and hydroelectric dams. He would give money to small communities in order to build green energy sources, such as wind turbines. Nuts thinks oil companies should have incentives to be green, and proposes raising their taxes and cutting their subsidies.
Deez Nuts is tired of the United States being the world watchdog. He wants America to take care of itself before involving itself into foreign affairs. The presidential hopeful continues to use his newfound fame to promote the idea of America improving drastically.
