Although Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton have stolen much of the spotlight in terms of which individual will run the White House, a pool of over 600 candidates who filed their Form 2s within the Federal Election Commission have gained their own notoriety.
Included in the crowded ocean of potential leaders of the Nation were some debatable names, such as Deez Nuts (I – Iowa) and Limberbutt McCubbins (D – Kentucky), found themselves in competition for spots in the upcoming election.
Inspired by a fellow classmate at a local Louisville high school, senior Emilee McCubbins instated the name of Limberbutt on the FEC application.
Two of Limberbutt’s main political objectives included harsher penalties for undocumented workers and strides towards companies creating jobs.

As for the real headline grabber heading into conventions, Deez Nuts, an Independent out of the Hawkeye State and whom is only 15 years old, applied to make a statement and defended one of his policies of cutting subsidies to oil companies in substitution for tax incentives towards greener technology.

And when it came to a polling, residents of North Carolina surprisingly voted ‘not sure’ as opposed to ‘unfavorable’ in terms of supporting Deez Nuts.

In fact, Deez Nuts declared that if he wins the election, Limberbutt McCubbins would serve as his vice president.
Moral of the story? U.S. presidential elections continue to lose credibility and further demoralize and cement the American as a plausible laughing stock.
