Withdrawn 2016 Republican Presidential Candidate


Esteban Miguel Oliverez
Born: May 5th, 1981  (age 35)
Esteban Oliverez currently resides in Austin, Texas. Little is known of his academic history, as well as about his prior employment, but he is no stranger to work. He began his first job at the age of 7, when he started working as a busboy in his parents' restaurant. He describes the business' closing three years later as the first time he was laid off – as well as the first and only time he hugged his boss in consolation. Today, he identifies as an entrepreneur.

Oliverez is running as a Republican, but he describes both major parties as each having quality ideas as well as terrible ones. He decries the political dichotomy of the United States, declaring that there are more than two ways to do things. To express his views on the issues, he has published a video on YouTube that has become well-trafficked.

Oliverez espouses the value of equality and believes that all Americans should have the same access to education, without preferential placement favoring wealthier students. He advocates for the use of technology and other means to increase the capacity of higher education institutions, enabling all qualified individuals to enroll, and at a lower cost than currently exists. He also speaks cryptically of the dangers of “dynastic wealth”, saying that fortunes inherited by the lucky do nothing to encourage competition and entrepreneurship. Every generation, he says, deserves a fresh start. However, he does not elaborate on the policy implications (if any) of this position.

Oliverez is frustrated with the American stock market, in which he complains that half of all transactions are conducted by high-frequency traders using tools to which most people will never have access. He proposes to ease such reckless speculation with the imposition of a “very small” sales tax on financial trading orders, which he argues would promote long-term investments while raising over a hundred billion dollars a year – money that could be used to repair poorly-maintained infrastructure and reduce the nation's budget deficit.

Tax reform is another of Oilverez's proposals. He laments that although the United States imposes higher corporate taxes than any European nation, the tax code is so riddled with loopholes that wealthy companies and individuals are able to pay drastically reduced rates or even nothing at all. He proposes to eliminate nearly all deductions and legal workarounds that allow this to take place, and institute a low flat rate for all taxpayers.

Oliverez is generally a left-leaning candidate, especially when compared to the Republican party with which he aligns himself. None of his policies are especially radical, however, and he may hope to find support among centrists hesitant to commit too strongly to either side of the political aisle.
