I ran because no one else would speak up for the rights of our posterity.
I ran because no one else would stand without exception for the equal protection of that posterity - the protection that God and our Constitution absolutely require.
I ran because no one else would defend the civil institution of marriage, the way God created and defined it, and the way it was always recognized throughout our national history.
I ran because no one else would speak out against the coup d'etat, the destructive fallacy, of judicial supremacy.
I ran because no one one else would speak out against the unconstitutional spending that is about to land our country in insolvency, and rob our children and grandchildren of their God-given right to government by consent.
I can see the finish line now, and, no matter where I place, I have no regrets about running again.
At the very least we robbed American Christians of any legitimate excuse, and represented the faith and the beliefs of the most decent principled men and women in America.
That's all got to count for something...
No matter the outcome today, we can go to our rest tonight secure in the knowledge that we, unlike our opponents, stood without wavering, without exception, for equal protection under the law for the innocents who are threatened over the next four years by the monsters who stand ready to annihilate them in the murder mills of America.
We stood without compromise for God's institution of marriage and the natural family.
We stood for the people's right to self-protect, as secured by our Second Amendment.
We stood for adherence to the Enumerated Powers of our Constitution, and for the reining in of those who would have a judicial oligarchy rule over us.
We stood in defense of the sovereignty, the security, and the borders of the United States.
My supporters have nothing of which to be ashamed.
When it is all said and done, others will not be able to say as much.
Longview (TX) News-Journal
MARSHALL — Harrison County Republican Party Chair Wes Brumit has resigned, saying he cannot support GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.
The announcement took the executive committee of the county's Republican Party by surprise.
"In our last executive meeting, (Brumit) did share with us his views that he could not support Mr. Trump," said Wendell Jones, a member of the executive committee. "We all told him at that time we felt that was inappropriate for the (party) leader in our county, and, we would hope as he studies the issues that he would come to a different conclusion and support the party ticket from the top down."
Jones said the Harrison County Republican Party does not stand with Brumit's statements regarding Trump.
"We've been here supporting and calling, asking people to support the ticket from the top down," he said.
In a statement announcing his resignation, Brumit said he no longer can be affiliated with a party that "holds Donald Trump up as an example of its values and principles.
"I would be doing a disservice to the party and my executive committee by continuing in this capacity, when I have no confidence or respect for the man at the top of the ticket," he wrote. "To be clear, I will continue to fight for conservative ideals and values, but will do so through a different venue."
Brumit, who declined to comment beyond his statement, indicated he has no plans to support Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
He said he will be supporting and voting for Tom Hoefling, an Iowa resident and nominee of America's Party.
"His values, character and principles more closely exemplify my own," Brumit wrote of Hoefling. "To borrow a phrase from President (Ronald) Reagan, 'I am not leaving the GOP, the GOP left me.' "

Majorie Blood of Toledo, Ohio:
"I am happy to be able to vote of Tom Hoefling for president, a man who loves God and stands up for life!"
Sunny Shell of Plano, Texas:
"My family voted for Tom Hoefling because our faith in Christ trumps our fear of any man or woman--and that includes Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Neither Clinton nor Trump can take away anything beyond what God Almighty allows, and neither can give us anything that God Almighty disallows. 'And the LORD said to Satan, 'Behold, all that he has is in your hand. Only against him do not stretch out your hand.' So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD.' ~Job 1:12, ESV No one can make anything great except the Great I AM. And the last time I checked, His name is NOT Donald Trump. It is YHWH."
Gerald Prichard of Meridianville, Alabama:
"An inscription on the fireplace in the White House's State Dining Room, written originally by John Adams, in part reads, 'May none but Honest and Wise Men ever rule under this Roof.' After researching Tom Hoefling's beliefs and actions, I think that he would be the kind of person in character whom John Adams had in mind. I can truthfully say that I have not encountered a political candidate previously with whom I agreed more on moral, political, and economic issues than Tom Hoefling, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to vote for a candidate with a clear conscience."
Claudia Barlow of Yucaipa, California:
"Tom is my candidate of choice, because he is not making empty promises that he can't possibly keep."
Matthew Philleo of Eau Claire, Wisconsin:
"John Adams said, 'There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.' Why should I support the lesser of two evils when there is a third candidate that most accurately represents my views? The Republican party was the new kid on the block when the Whigs and Democrats were hashing it out. They had one major platform, one decisive goal: to abolish slavery. And eventually, these unlikely candidates gained a following. And eventually they won. And slavery was indeed abolished. But that was then and this is now. The Republican party of today is nothing like it was in the 1850's. I want to vote for a candidate that will actually stand up for life and marriage, and not just give token assent to gain my vote. Tom Hoefling, from what I can see, is that man. Now God is ultimately in control, but I want to vote for the best candidate, regardless of the chances of getting elected. We have to start somewhere and let our voices be heard as Christians. We don't have to be a slave to the two-party system. We don't have to follow the herd. We can vote our consciences and let the chips fall where they may, and at the end of the day, let God's will be done!"

"Moreover you shall provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens." Exodus 18:21
In this election, I believe there is only one candidate who is truly God-fearing. One candidate, who knows America can never be great again until she honors what made America great in the first place.
One candidate alone, knows & has a firm grasp of the historical documents that are the foundation of our American republic. One candidate, who understands and believes that government's first and highest purpose is to protect our posterity.
One candidate alone, proclaims that he will close the death camps, which have stained and polluted our land.
Tom Hoefling is the only candidate who can offer us genuine hope, that can restore what the moth has nearly destroyed.
If you hold your vote as a sacred trust, want to honor God & restore equal protection under law to all human beings ~ vote for Tom Hoefling in 2016 ~ for you and your posterity!
"Well, first let me say, I hate the title 'social' issues. Social issues are who you are going to invite to your Super Bowl party--or whatever. We are talking about moral issues. The basis for our form of government and our claim to liberty is a moral basis. Without that moral basis, we have no rule of law, we have no justice. We can't have equal protection under the law. As far as the racial things, as far as I'm concerned, there is only one race, and that's the human race. And I believe in equal protection under the law for everybody, including little babies in the womb."

Tom Hoefling introduces himself and his agenda at candidate forum held on November 2, 2016.
Tom Hoefling, America's Party 2016 Nominee for POTUS, on the Liberty Line Radio Show
Interview starts at 12:00
"Human government exists to punish evil doers and to restrain evil-doers. . . . The power of the sword, the responsibility to protect human life, that's the first reason that we have human government. And sadly, in our day and in our time in the United States of America--a country that was dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal--we continue to slaughter millions and tens of millions of little babies, and strip them not only of their life, but all of their liberties and their right to equal protection under the laws."

Thank you to the citizens who have endorsed Tom Hoefling and Steve Schulin! Here are the latest. Add your own endorsement!
James Fox of Bakersfield, California:
"After reading Tom's platform I thought 'Oh My Goodness' I have finally found a candidate I can whole-heartedly support. I have been looking for some time. I simply can not and will not vote in good conscience for the 'lesser of two evils' as many Americans seem to have resigned themselves to this year. I agree totally with practically every one of his 10 points he lists. For now, I will commit to pray for his campaign -- and success -- until I can do more. America NEEDS a statesman with the values that Tom possesses if she wishes to survive as a nation much longer. We are in BIG trouble! Thanks, Tom, for running, and may God richly bless you!"
Teresa Mihaylov of Carrollton, Texas:
"A Ted Cruz supporter searching for a true conservative I can support who will count in this years presidential race. I've decided on Tom Hoefling. He fits the Biblical mandate for the kind of leader Christ followers are to choose."
Brent Wiebe of Nashville, Tennessee:
"I endorse this candidate."
Karen Dabbs of Auburn, Alabama:
"From the great state of Alabama -- I support Tom Hoefling!"
Gary Lundberg of San Antonio, Texas:
"Only Christian Conservative left in the Presidential race!"
Patti Weaver of Fulton, Missouri:
"I will NEVER endorse anyone that is not 100% Pro-life. Tom Hoefling's views are the same as mine. I also truly believe his statement, "We are not called to win, we are called to be faithful." People need to vote. Millions don't and they can make ALL the difference in this election. Please vote. Don't sit this election out."
Carla Hampton of Indianapolis, Indiana:
"I cannot conscientiously vote for the Democratic or Republican party candidates. I am a Christian, and Tom Hoefling's political stand and what his goal is for America is exactly what we need and are ideals I can get behind and stand up for!"
Cindy Shark of Mechanicville, New York:
"I will be writing in my vote for Tom Hoefling. I knew in my heart that I could not compromise the biblical principles I so strongly believe in and profess, by voting for either Clinton or Trump. They do not represent me, nor my God. I feel blessed to have found a candidate that is willing to hold to the standard God has set and to know that with him, I am not choosing between the lesser of two evils, but rather I am choosing righteousness."
William Sankey of Pomeroy, Iowa:
"I support Tom Hoefling for President."
Michael Paul of West Bend, Wisconsin:
"Today is Oct. 26, 2016, and I've been struggling with my decision on who to vote for. I was almost ready to skip voting this year because of my own principles and morals that will not allow me to support Trump or Clinton. I finally decided that I have to vote, but I will have to write in a candidate. Then I came across Tom Hoefling for president in Americas Party. I read much about him and now have no doubt that I will be casting my vote for him on the ballot. My vote will not be wasted if he loses because I am voting on my biblical principles, morals and beliefs and not in political affiliations. My integrity before God is more valuable than a compromise of voting for the lesser of 2 evils. I believe Tom Hoefling is a true Christian with strong principles and the best candidate for the office of president. It's not too late. Faith and action will get us there."
Laura Steele of San Antonio, Texas:
"You will be my vote."
(fits two per page)
Patrick Steele of San Antonio, Texas:
"I hereby endorse Tom Hoefling as the candidate who best represents my voice, my principles and my ideals, concerning these United States of America."
Carolyn Simpson of Willow Park, Texas:
"Since Ted Cruz suspended his campaign for President, I have been searching for another candidate that stands for my values as a Christian Conservative! I believe that I have found that candidate in Tom Hoefling! Thank you, Sir, for standing with 'We the People'! Vote Tom Hoefling!"
Sharon Bowser of Groton, Connecticut:
"You have my vote."
Hannah Keith of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma:
"I, Hannah Keith, wholeheartedly endorse Tom Hoefling for President 2016. May God use his bold stand to preserve and reestablish the integrity of the presidential office, the right to life, and the conservation of the Constitution."
Anthony Burns of Edmond, Oklahoma:
"As a Christian and studying minister, I say it is time for God to come back to Washington!"
Judah Marx of Dayton, Ohio:
"Tom Hoefling is an unashamed, God-fearing Christian man from what I can tell. I will have a totally clear conscience when I write him in as my vote for president on election day."
Sandy Bryan of Mount Vernon, Washington:
"Finally -- someone willing to deal with the real issues facing America! If you're a Christian you should be casting your vote for someone that doesn't make you cringe with embarrassment or shake your head in disbelief. If you're not a Christian you should be casting your vote for someone that doesn't make you fear that your constitutional rights are optional or that your government is operated by lobbyists and special interest groups. Tom Hoefling is about making our great nation strong again, by remaining true to our founding fathers, and their vision, and the documents they risked everything for to create America to be one nation under God, with liberty and justice for all. Vote for Tom Hoefling for President!"
Today we filed the last of the paperwork for the states. Thank you to everyone who has helped in the process, to get votes counted for Tom and Steve.
If the miracle occurs, and I win the election, it will be because a sufficient portion of the church finally woke up to the scam that has been run on them for a whole generation, and decided to stop compromising what they say they believe for the Republicans. And it will because God moved them to action.
It will have been without the support of any of the political, or religious, or business, or academic big "names," without money, without the corrupt so-called "major" political parties, and without coverage by the media.
It will truly be an historic victory, a heavy blow struck for the restoration of principled self-government of, by, and for the people.
And God will receive all the glory.
If I don't win? The republic's death spiral will continue, until the church finally wakes up to their civic responsibilities, or until America is finally and completely destroyed.
Dear Mr. Hoefling,
While I wholeheartedly agree with your platform, I have a few questions:
1. Do you have a plan for how you will accomplish your goals?
2. Which agencies would you hope to eliminate?
3. Can you share a plan for immigration? How do you balance compassion and law?
I would refuse to sign any bill that failed the following test:
Morality – An unjust law is no law at all.
Constitutionality – Unconstitutional laws are null and void.
Necessity – Unnecessary laws are an unjust, unfair, counter-productive burden on the people.
Generality - Laws should not benefit only one group or bring harm upon any narrowly-defined group of individuals.
Prospectivity - Laws should always apply only in the future and never to the past. This is why our Constitution bars ex post facto laws.
Publicity – All laws should be widely published and well-known to all.
Consent – Our laws must be generally acceptable to those who will have to live by them.
Due Process – Our laws must be applied equally and fairly, with the punishment for each similar crime being the same for any convicted lawbreaker.
"If I am elected President of the United States, a team will be assigned to each piece of legislation that is passed by the House of Representatives and the Senate to examine in great detail whether such prospective laws meet this simple but rigorous test. I will also have a permanent copy of these eight elements on my desk and will personally test each bill against this plumb line before I sign it."
-- Tom Hoefling
As far as borders and immigration, the Constitution guarantees to each of the states security from invasion. The Commander-in-Chief bears the primary responsibility to provide that security. That's why I have said that if elected I will sign a presidential finding to the effect that our open southern border represents a clear and present danger to the sovereignty and the security of the United States. I will then send whatever military forces are needed to the border to secure it. I will leave them there as long as I am president, or until the Congress provides the resources for the appropriate barriers, and sufficient civilian forces, to assure that few, if any, will come across without our permission.
The Constitution gives Congress sole responsibility to set our immigration and naturalization laws. As president I will strictly enforce that law.
Americans have always been compassionate to immigrants, even illegal immigrants. I've seen this with my own eyes. Our Constitution, in the Fourteenth Amendment, even guarantees the God-given rights of all foreign nationals, legal or illegal, as long as they are in any of the states of the Union.
However, compassion does not include an obligation to make house guests permanent members of your family. It doesn't include an obligation to make the burglar part of your family, with access to all of your resources, simply by virtue of his presence in your house.
If folks are here without our permission, they need to go home.
Thanks for the great questions, XXXX!
For Life, Liberty, and the Constitution,
Heidi Smith of Medford, Oregon:
"If you fear God more than you fear Hillary, vote your conscience. Vote Hoefling."
Jesse Taysom, Pocatello, Idaho:
"I believe in voting for a God-fearing man. I believe that Tom Hoefling is that sort of man, and reading about him has restored my faith in the future of America. It's good to know that there are still men who are fighting for what is most important."
Nancy Whiting of Kenai, Alaska:
"I'm voting for Tom Hoefling. I get a lot of flack from my Trump-supporting friends, but I maintain that if enough people broke with the 'vote for the lesser evil' mentality of the major parties, Tom could win! I'm voting my conscience and for someone who stands for life, and has a record and history of doing so, someone with principles in line with God's word and with our U.S. Constitution. That person is Tom Hoefling. I'm spreading the word to everyone I know as quickly as I can."
Jennifer Lankford of La Pine, Oregon:
"I don't want to see liberal America continue to take away my freedom as a Christian to openly worship Jesus and live by Biblical standards, and I want a President who fights for the right to life for every person! Voting for Tom Hoefling means I can vote without offending a holy God."
Daniel Madison of Mechanicsville, Virginia:
"I had almost given up and had decided that I would likely vote for Trump because of the absence of candidates (including Trump) that I thought fit for the office of President. Then I found out about Tom Hoefling and Steve Schulin. I am so relieved that I do not have to settle for a candidate who I am against. How blessed we are to have a God-fearing, constitution-defending candidate to stand behind! I hope many will unite on election day to put Tom Hoefling in the White House! Tom Hoefling has my full support in this election, and I hope millions more will say the same!"
Will Jowers of Wylie, Texas:
"Integrity, character and wisdom are rare. I am glad to have a candidate like Tom Hoefling running for president."
Scott Thompson of Sterling, Louisiana:
"I publicly endorse Tom Hoefling for President of the United States. His values and principles are what America needs in a leader. He stands with and for the people of America."
Matthew Davis of Maud, Texas:
"The first candidate I have ever felt I can fully support and back 100%. I have no moral gut check feeling, no spiritual hindrance about supporting this man. He fully represents what a president should be."
Elece Hollenback of Seattle, Washington:
"I believe all authority comes from God. Because Tom Hoefling seems to understand the same thing, I believe he should be our president. I believe he will take us back to our Protestant roots where our founding fathers put faith and trust in God when it came to running our nation. In the Bible, the book of Kings talks about many good and bad kings. I am ready for a good 'king' (by that I mean president, I realize this is not a monarchy) for America once again."
Sue Macior of Newport News, Virginia:
"As a Christian woman, it does my heart good to see someone running for President that brings the right stuff in what they believe and the direction they see that this country needs to go. It is great to see that you stand for Marriage as God intended and have no problem keeping God first in this country."
Maria Strickland of Bangor, Maine:
"Thank you, Tom Hoefling, for offering a credible choice for President who will stand up for values we hold dear!"
Ellen Parker of Pacific Grove, California:
"Help! I need to vote for someone whose values line up with mine. Oh, wait a second, I can vote for Tom Hoefling and know without a doubt that the values we share line up!"
Sarah Irwin of Taylors, South Carolina:
"It's a shame we do not see more of the independent candidates that are out there. I've just learned about Tom Hoefling but from what I have read so far he seems to hold God's interests and God's Word close by for his decision making. This country has left biblical principles long ago and God's wrath is evident, if we the people don't turn back to Him with our whole hearts.
A friend of mine shared this verse on Facebook: Deuteronomy 8:19-20, 'And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish. As the nations which the Lord destroyeth before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the Lord your God.'
As a nation, many believers in Christ don't take a stand for Christ. We need to go back and remember what this nation was founded on, God. It seems Tom Hoefling would bring God back into our nation and point others to know Christ as their personal savior. I have discovered that is all that matters is salvation through Christ. Everything else is just temporal. Our nation is going to see some major changes and I believe our vote counts more than it has ever done before.
I will be voting for Tom Hoefling who won't leave out God and God's principles. I just pray that in all of the states our votes would count. There has been no independent candidate that has made it to office. Wouldn't it be awesome instead of the first women president or black president it would be the first independent candidate that is elected president.
God is in control but we all must do our part to uplift the name of Christ. 1 Chronicles 29:11, 'Thine, O Lord is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all.'"
Amie Mutti of Lexington, Ohio:
"I am concerned that the election of Trump or Hillary will bring about judgement to this country. I will be praying for the safety and protection of my family and loved ones should that day come. How can I ask for God’s protection if I helped elect the very person who is ushering in the judgement? I’m voting for Tom Hoefling so I can tell my family, my children and more importantly my God, that I did my part. I stood for righteousness, even if it meant standing alone. And I will put my trust, not in the leaders of this world, but in the Creator of the universe."
Karla Dorman of Burleson, Texas:
"I love the fact that Tom Hoefling is not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and is not afraid to say His Name. We need a Godly man to run this country. We are in trouble, folks, and if we don't repent and turn back to God, we, as a Nation, are doomed. And that is why I am supporting Tom Hoefling for President. God bless you, Sir, and God bless America again!"
Sharon Rehm of Hendersonville, Tennessee:
"I will vote for Tom Hoefling and Steve Schulin. I will encourage everyone I know to vote for him. I believe he would be the most awesome president ever. I agree fully with all he stands for."
When there are no more hills that men are willing to die on, not one square inch of your nation's territory is any longer secure.
This is true in the physical sense, but it is also true in terms of your rights. If men are not willing to fight for the little babies in the womb, for equal protection under the law, your God-given rights are no longer secure either. None of them.
If men are not willing to fight for the Constitution, and for the obligations which attend the sacred oath of office to support and defend that Constitution, the Constitution may as well no longer exist. It means nothing. It's gone.
And finally, if men are not willing to fight for our children and grandchildren, they too will be erased, or, if not erased, enslaved, stripped of all of the Blessings of Liberty.
Where are the men who are willing to fight - for our country, for our Constitution, for our posterity?
Teresa Millican of Sugar Land, Texas:
"I vote for Tom Hoefling for President!!!"
RoseAnne McConnell of Tucan, Arizona:
"My husband and myself support Tom Hoefling and Steve Schulin for President and Vice President of the United States. The current Republican or Democratic Presidential candidates do NOT come close in reflecting the moral standards our country was founded ... 'One Nation under God' with life, liberty, and justice for all. My father and forefathers fought for citizens of the U.S. under our united constitution. An apology is due the families who have sacrificed sons and daughters, brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers who have given their lives to protect our freedoms. I pray we wake up and turn to God, seek His Face through His Holy Scriptures and vote for godly men who fight for righteous standards clearly given in the Bible."
Mark Robinson of Sheboygan, Wisconsin:
"Tom Hoefling articulates a Biblical stance on the issues and lays out a simple plan to reign in the over-bloated government. I feel like casting a vote for him is the best way to make my voice heard since he best represents my opinions and values."
Ann Shatto of Cincinnati, Ohio:
"I cannot vote for either the Democrat or Republican nominee - due to moral issues. I want to endorse Tom. I believe he will lead us back to our constitution."
Larry Lamb of Grandview, Texas:
"I have been speaking of the candidate who was in favor and believe in 2nd Chronicle 7: 14 as part of their platform for president. It is nice to hear a refreshing truth that can come only from God's word and one who has his face in the cross."
Douglas Christian of Gloster, Mississippi:
"I endorse Tom Hoefling for president of the United States of America. We need this kind of leadership."
Sixto Portilla of Wantagh, New York:
"The ten keys of Tom's platform are consistent with, and in the same order of importance as, my own vision for our great nation. Tom's bold proclamation of God as the central authority of American policy moving forward demonstrates a wisdom that derives from biblical through unabridged modern history."
Doug Hunt of Golden Valley, Minnesota:
"I am backing Tom because he believes what I believe, that we have to get back the Lord. If we repent and turn to Him the Lord will heal us. We all need to have the Lord Jesus change my heart before real change can happen."
Thank you to our Wisconsin supporters for getting a full slate of electors!
