Hamm For President Press Release
Are the American people ready for true "grass roots" politics, a president they can relate to and trust, a man to lead the nation who is one of them? Entrepreneur Vincent S. Hamm of Golden, Colorado feels that the American people have been asking for this type of leader for quite some time. That's why he's running for President of the United States in 1996.
Its no secret that most politicians don't fit the profile of a typical American. Hamm feels his campaign will appeal to many Americans because he is one of them. A near-native Coloradan, he was employed as a computer programmer/analyst for 15 years before starting his own computer consulting business in 1989. He is involved in his community and, as a business leader,
has been actively involved in the Denver Chamber of Commerce, Colorado Indian Chamber of Commerce, and the Governor's Small Business Council.
Hamm is running on the Democratic ticket and his campaign platform is based on the decriminalization of drugs. "The main reason why drugs are such big business is because there is a huge profit in selling them. Decriminalizing drugs would eliminate the danger, profit and intrigue in importing them to our country, thus lowering the cost of the substance. The money that now goes into the pockets of drug lords would go into the pocket of every American," Hamm stated. "There is a significant amount of money leaving the American economy each year to drugs - in some cases this amount has been nearly equal to the annual inflation rate."
Hamm's plan to decriminalize drugs includes slapping a heavy tax on these substances and putting the tax money into substance-abuse programs and towards reduction of the federal deficit.
Citizens of the United States deserve a candidate who knows and understands their cares and concerns, making it his sworn duty to address them. Vincent S.Hamm is a candidate for the people and, more importantly, of the people.
