If you’ve had it with the Democrats and the Republicans, if, try as you might, you find you cannot get behind Clinton, Obama, McCain, Huckabee, or any of the others, if you’re tired of third-party politics as well, if it looks to you as though, once again, none of the current candidates or parties speaks for you or shares your priorities, you’ve come to the right place.
I am running for President of the United States on the Free Soil Party Ticket. These are the issues I believe are most important:
Peace in the world and in our nation, an end to war;
An end to rape and an end to violence against women;
Justice for all people of all ages, races, ethnicities, abled and disabled, and without regard to who people love or how they look;
An end to poverty and with it, insuring that all citizens have good food, adequate shelter, clean water, decent housing, health care, education and sufficient income for all of their lives;
Building a society which is friendly and hospitable to children, animals, and the earth, where the lives of human beings and animals really matter;
Protecting and healing the earth we live in.
A government that is truly of the people and by the people and interested, first and foremost, in people.
If you share these concerns, join us! Contact friends, family members, neighbors, and ask them to help you to gather the signatures we will need in order to get Free Soil candidates on the ballot in every state. If you’re interested in discussing or fine-tuning my platform, please join us at the Cheryl Lindsey Seelhoff for President Wiki. If you would like to discuss issues of interest especially to women, join us at Women’s Space. If Free Soil Party politics appeal to you and you’d like to run for office yourself or know someone else who would, join Aletha at the Free Soil Party site and blog.

We need the support of the many citizens throughout this nation who want peace in the Middle East and at home, who want a nation that is safe for all, including women, children and animals, and who want real and true change.
In solidarity, for peace and with great hope,
Cheryl Lindsey Seelhoff (Heart)
