Hello and welcome,


Like most other Americans, I am a typical individual. I wake up in the morning and get ready for the day. I get my daughter prepared for her day. I go to girl scouts with my little girl, go to the park, and work thirty (30) to sixty (60) hours a week. I am paid every two (2) weeks and struggle from paycheck to paycheck. I have to worry if I will have enough money each month. I cry when things get too hard, I laugh when something is funny, and I know how to be serious when I need to be. Like many others in this country, I am tired of the government and big business taking my money and blaming me for it.

I am Rose Kincade, an Independent candidate, and I want to be the people's President of the United States of America. I have decided to run for president of the United States of America to serve those who make the country run.

To help people better understand who I am, I have prepared and answered twenty-five (25) questions about myself below. It is my hope that these questions will help you get to know me better, not only as a candidate but as a person as well. If you would rather watch the video of me answering these very same questions, click here. I also recently took a personality test that can be read here. I have prepared copies of tax returns

     1)   Why do you want to be President?

Over the last two hundred years, there have been five major political party eras. These eras have seen different political parties come and go, like the Federalist, Democratic-Republicans, and the Whig parties, with some parties, like the Democratic and Republican parties, even changing their identity as they evolved. Since its establishment in 1828, the democratic party has gone from a contemporary group to one that claims support of social justice, social liberalism, a mixed economy, and the welfare state. The Republican party started as a social justice party that has evolved into one that lowers taxes for the rich, free-market capitalism, free enterprise, a strong national defense, gun rights, deregulation, and labor unions' restrictions. That leaves both sides fighting each other over simple issues that should not be left hanging in the air, such as immigration, gun control, youth education, and many more. But, there are other political parties with solutions on how to fix many of our nation's issues that are being blocked by both the Democrats and the Republicans.

I have spent the last few decades watching each of the presidents (Ragen, Bush Sr, Clinton, Bush Jr, Obama, and now Trump) run the country with little real regards to the eighty-two percent (82%) of people that make America run. Their primary focus has been on the middle and upper class. America is in crises, and I believe the only way to fix the issues such as immigration, gun control, and youth education, is for those directly affected to do something about it. I, a person from this lower class or predominantly low-income family, have decided the time has come to, not only take our fight to the white house but take this fight into the white house. It is a time that we the people of the working class people have a voice in what is going on in our country. I, myself, am going to fight back by running for president of the United States of America. I am Rose Kincade, a member of the Justice Party, and I want to be the people's President of the United States of America.


     2)   What do you consider to be your best find?

This one is kind of hard to answer, though I would have to say, people. People can surprise you like no other. I have watched people do horrible things for many different reasons. But I have seen many people do compassionate acts in spite of the risks to their personal safety. It is, in fact, this latter group of people I love to find walking down the road, shopping for groceries, or even driving up the street not looking for problems but coming across them by chance.


     3)   Who are those who have impressed you most with what they have accomplished?

I have several historical idols that I have drawn inspiration from in my day-to-day life. The first is Thomas Edison who said; "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." To me, this is the foundation of life. If people were to give up after not finding success on their first try, then no one would ever succeed at what they do. That brings me to my next idol, Abraham Lincoln. I heard growing up that Abraham Lincoln taught himself to read and write as a teenage boy. After striking out on his own, Lincoln then taught himself the laws of the time. Lincoln eventually became President of the United States despite never having a formal education. My next idol is Albert Einstein who lived with dyslexia as I do. Like Albert Einstein, growing up, I had to fight to learn to read and write. Einstien had become the worlds leading theoretical physicist of his time with hard work and determination. The last of my idols are my parents who taught me how to be a strong person. When I was about seven years old, my parents took us on a family vacation. While we were visiting Circus Circus in Las Vegas, my father slipped in the shower and injured his back in such a way that it almost killed him. My mother had to fight to get him the help he needed before he lost his life to his injuries. It is the combined influences of these people that I have built my life on. I have overcome so many different battles because of what I feel these people have taught me about adversity.


     4)   How do you relax after a hard day of work?

I find that watching TV is a great way to relax. I will watch; Japanese Anime like Inuyasha, Bleach, Naruto, or any of the like. With Sci-Fi educational shows, it is shows like Outrageous Acts of Science, Spaces Deepest Secrets, What on Earth, or even Unearthed. Or, I may watch a movie that I have not seen in a while. I don't read at night because it gets my mind going too much and then I can not fall asleep. Reading is morning task to get the brain going.


     5)   What is the most heartwarming thing you have ever seen?

The most heartwarming thing? I would have to say homecomings of servicemen and women. I have seen so many that many of them blur together. Some of the most vivid I can remember is where a serviceman or woman is coming home early or unexpectedly. On their return, they surprise their loved ones in different ways; one showed up at his daughter's homecoming dance. Another had come home on her sons birthday. She had jumped out of a giant present sitting in the corner surprising the young boy to the point that he was not sure how to react. I do not think anything else has ever affected me in the same way.


     6)   What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?

Everyone should do many different things at least once, but I believe everyone should do volunteer work. Now I know that volunteer work is not for everyone as a calling, but tIcan learn from volunteering and helping others. Let me explain; I volunteered at a soup kitchen for some time. While I was there, I was able to meet so many people who touched my heart with their stories. There was a woman who had lost everything she owned in a fire and was living in a hotel and going to the soup for food every night. Even though insurance was paying for her to live in the hotel, she had to pay for so much more the insurance would not cover. There was so much more I wanted to do for this woman, but making sure she had a meal was the only thing I could do at the time.

     7)   What is something that many people are obsessed with, but you just do not get your point 

Oh, another easy one for me. I honestly do not understand sports at all. Now I do not mean all sports, just the violent ones; i.e., soccer, football, basketball, etc... I do not understand the need for people to go out and beat the ever-loving snot out of others when there are far better ways to spend your time and get your exercise. As a child, my parents enrolled my sisters and me into soccer. I remember, when I played, I feared hurting others. I also feared being alone with the other children, at the time I did not know why but I did figure it out later.


     8)   What is the best thing that has happened to you?

That would have to be the day my daughter was born. I have had many wonderful things happen to me in my lifetime. But the day my little girl was born was my moment in life. I can remember the day like it was yesterday. It had snowed overnight, and the roads were slick as we drove to the hospital. The doctors wanted to induce labor for medical reasons, but after a long day of labor, at 2:01 PM Wednesday, November 26, 2006, my baby girl was born, seven pounds, seven ounces, fourteen inches long. She was the most precious thing I had ever seen in my life and to this day, I have never forsaken her. I would die for this little girl, and there is nothing in this world that I would not for her. Until she was born, I felt as though something was missing. If anything ever happened to her, I do not know what I would do.

     9)   What are some things you have had to unlearn?

Many things, to be honest. How the world works, how others love, and my perspective on reality and God. As a child, I believed that good always won out over the bad. I knew deep in my heart that America was the center of the world and the only righteous location in the world. I knew that when you fell in love with someone, that it was supposed to be forever. While there were other religions out there, I also knew that Mormonism was the only true religion that taught the truth.

I grew up in the South West in Southern California, Las Vegas, NV, and Flagstaff, AZ, knowing two parents, three grandparents, and one great-grandparent that I loved genuinely. Each of them taught me how to love others, the value of family, and the piece of working together. The Mormon church showed me the section of heart that was supposed to be God, that everything good came from this part of all humanity. As a child, my world was perfect to me, seeing how everything seemed to work around me. But, my whole world came crashing down around me as a young adult. I was at a church function playing basketball with some others my age when I accidentally cut one of them with my fingernails. When the bishop started inquiring what happened, he got it stuck in his head that I had a knife on me somewhere. When I refused to admit it he was correct; The Bishop told me that I was not allowed back to the church. After that, I started studying other religions and books. I discovered that if you were to remove the different languages used, most Bibles are the same, or instead they attempt to teach the same thing.

After learning all of this, I started reevaluating everything I thought I knew. I discovered that people from other countries disliked Americans because we are arrogant. People from places like England and Scotland feel that Americans believe we are better than other countries. I even met a few people from Turkey who were upset because Americans complained about things they would love to have. I have heard people all across the country say things like "Great America," "America is great," and "Make America Great Again." But what made America great? Was it the way Americans felt superior, or the way Americans looked down on others? Or was it how Americans "believed in God?" I honestly do not believe that America was great. America has been arrogant, egotistical, and prideful, but not great. But we can be a great country. We have to learn how to work with other countries.

    10)  What is unique about the place you grew up in?

Well, as I said before, I grew up in Southern California, Las Vegas, NV, and Flagstaff, AZ, knowing two parents, three grandparents, and one great-grandparent. In Southern California, I got to know my maternal grandparents and my maternal grandmother's mom, my mom's sisters, and many of my dads family. My favorite and safe place for me was my grandparents home. I can still remember the house in Chino, California. It sits at the end of a cul-de-sac with a main street, Walnut, right next to it. In the winter, the whole community closed its streets to cars to allow people to safely walk through and see all of the house decorated with Christmas lights. When my sisters and I had to stay with them for a while, I slept in my grandmother's office on the second floor.

As a young child, I remember a family tradition for everyone to go to my grandparents for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thinking back I often miss those days when the family was whole, I can remember so much in that house. Long before my great-grandmother and grandparents passed away often wishing things could have lasted forever. Oh, the house is still there and still looks similar, but much of it is different. There used to be a couple of big trees in the front yard as well as shrubs growing along the front of the house. They have painted the dark brown trim white, and the tan façade is more of a yellow the last time I saw it.


    11)  Who inspires you to be better?

There are far too many people to count. But, some of the most inspiring people in my life would have been my maternal grandparents. My grandfather was a strong and kind man with a solid code of conduct. He was a man that taught his children and grandchildren how to be better in life.

He always told us that if we made a mistake, no matter how bad, to own up to it and deal with it. He explained that even though there would always be consequences for our actions, coming forward about any issues would show we did not make them on purpose. Even though he is gone, I still try to follow his example and live like him.


    12)  They say that everyone has a book in them. What would your book be about?

For me, this is one of the most straightforward questions. I do not merely have a book in me. I have written a few books and working on more. The first book I tried writing was called "Dragon Knotts." But shortly before I completed it, my computer blue screened, and I lost everything, including many pictures of my daughter and family. I learned my lesson and started keeping backups on an external hard drive and online.

My most recent book, "The Dimensional Rift," was recently finished and published. I have several more I am working on and would love to see them published in the future. I love reading and writing science fiction books.


    13)  What are some of the events in your life that made you who you are?

If I were to list everything, then I would need another website to contain them. But I will list some of the biggest things in life. I have experienced what is known as prejudice from people who never took the opportunity to get to know the real me.


The first came after leaving the Mormon Church. I wandered around visiting other churches. But, none of them spoke to my soul. Not until I found Wicca and what it meant to me. For me, it was more than a religion that told people how to live. It is a belief in spirituality that accepts and guides everyone together. It became the foundation in much of how I feel about the world and the direction that America is heading.

The single most significant event is entangled with a series of smaller events. Being transsexual born into a Mormon family, I always felt oppressed by the morality of Mormonism. I believed that being trans was a mortal sin that needed extermination from this world. Suicide was even worse and therefore not an option. When I was 34 years old, I could no longer live behind a shell that kept me hidden from others. So, I decided to take action and remove the mask I had been hiding behind. I started my transition in December of 2012 with the support of those closest to me, family, friends, and community members.


However, a local Christian group started attacking me, and after threats of death, I decided to leave the area. I found myself in Bloomington, IN, where I found work with a company that reconditioned used cell phones for companies like Verison, AT&T, Sprint, and others. I tried to be stealthy, and for a while, I believed I was successful at it. But after nearly a year, I felt comfortable enough to come out to some of the friends I had made. These friends told me that they knew I was trans when I started. I was shocked to hear that until they told me the story of when I started working with them. When I started, some of the women had seen me using a restroom and had gone to management to let them know about me. The administration, whom I believed was the only one to know the truth, asked me if I felt comfortable using the women's restroom or if I wanted to use a bathroom set aside for people in my position.


I spent years waiting to feel normal, and using a bathroom other than one for all women, would have made me feel worse. The friend I was talking to informed me that he knew that I was not pretending to be a woman, as some had tried to indicate after really getting to know me.

    14)  What risks are worth taking?

Anything worth fighting for is always worth the risk. I would and have fought for love, fighting for the future, and fighting for others. These are my reasons I want to become the next President.

I have experienced what is known as prejudice from people who never took the opportunity to get to know the real me. I have experienced the hatred of others who can't love what they do not understand. I know the love of humanity and would enjoy seeing people feel the thing. I have learned how to love others, how to forgive, and to help others.


    15)  What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?

Be true to yourself and follow your heart's desires. I spent 34 years trying to be what I believed others wanted me to be like a man. I played sports and worked on cars for my dad. I went hunting, did off-road sports, and pretended to be okay around things that scared the hell out of me for a friend. But none of this was me. I am a kind, gentle person who loves to help others. I love Japanese Anime and writing stories and am utterly terrified by snakes and spiders. The only significant thing that came out of my time spent as a man is my daughter. I have learned over the years that pleasing others only leave you sad and broken. Do not live making choices to please others; live for what you need to be happy. Live in the here and now, making the most of today.


    16)  What do you like most about your family?

My family is more than a group of people who share the same blood, many of my family members share no blood with me. We are a very eclectic family. There are family members who are cops, pharmacists, military personnel, entrepreneurs, singers, those who love sports, and those who have eight children. We even have those who enjoy going to church and those who are atheists. My family respects others for who they are and will come together in times of need. My family is mine, and I will never forsake them.


    17)  What were some of the turning points in your life?

There have been several significant turning points in my life, but the most important one is also the most recent. In the summer of 2012, I experienced a nervous breakdown where I nearly allowed it to control me. However, as I started to fall completely, my daughter's face swam to the forefront and helped me fight off the overwhelming despair. That was the day that I finally admitted to myself as to who I was and made a promise to avoid lying to anyone, including myself.


    18)  What is the hardest lesson you have learned?

The absolute value of life. In 1984-85 my family lost several family and friends. I watched my parents suffer from these losses, but I did not fully understand why not until I went through the same thing.

In the Autumn and Summer of 2005, I, too, lost several people I genuinely cared for in my life. The worst one was my little sister. Growing up, she and I fought constantly. We fought so hard and for so long that we never honestly knew each other. It was only in the year before her death that we found a piece and started mending our bonds. We had plans to spend more time together going to place like the renaissance fair. But, after becoming pregnant with her third child, she chose a doctor that she thought would treat her and her baby right. The doctor and hospital he worked in claimed he was a perinatologist, but he could not pass the medical board exam.

As the pregnancy progressed, we watched as she started retaining water, her skin turned grey and blotchy, and she lost the strength to do everyday activities. About the start of the third trimester, she was hospitalized from exhaustion, and my mom went to sit with her while her husband was at work. My mom noticed some issues with my sister. She complained about things that do not happen in a healthy pregnancy, so my mom went to talk to the doctor on duty. The doctor, a partner of my sister's doctor, told my mom she was overreacting. When my mom pushed the issue, the doctor asked: "Well, is she dying?" My mom said to her that she is not a doctor and that it was a doctors responsibility to find out. The Doctor told my mom that if she did not back off, no one would be allowed in the delivery room when the time came. To be able to protect my little sister, my mom backed down and conceded.

On October 1st, 2015, my little sister gave birth to her third child. We were all proud of the tiny miracle, but just ten days later, my little sister was found dead in her bed by my mom. The obtopsy revealed that she died from complications of a high-risk pregnancy that could have been avoided with proper treatment. With this information, my family was able to take action against the and hospital for their involvement.

This loss taught me that love, life, and loss are all the same thing and tie into everything we do. Life is too short and precious to waste on fruitless events.


    19)  What do you want to be remembered for as president?

I want to be remembered for who I am as an American, as a person who cares about others. I have many ideas that I want to see implemented in this country. I have an education reform plan that, if it works, will bring America up in the international rankings. I also have an idea to help the low-income around the country. I want to remove the influence of large corporations from the political process.

However, my most progressive idea is an amendment to the constitution. It will protect all people in this country regardless of race, color, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, language, religion, political or other opinions, national or social origin, property, birth, or status. This amendment was drafted from the UN's version and can be found on my Civil Rights page.


    20)  What is the best and worst thing about getting older?

The best and worst things about getting older? Hmm. Well, I have always wanted to be a mother. As a child, I knew there were things I would never be able to do, including being able to have a child as a woman. But, as I have gotten older, there have been many advancements that look to be promising for those born unable to have a child, and those like me. Another great thing about getting older is seeing how my daughter has grown and developed as a person. I can't wait to see whom she becomes in the future.

The things I don't like about getting older are far too many to list them all, but let's make a shortlist. First is the loss of loved ones. I lost my great-grandmother in the '90s. I had been living with my grandparents and tried to help them with her needs. I have many memories of my great-grandmother that I cherish deeply, and after her death, I could never have any new ones. The same is true when I lost my grandparents, and I fear the loss of my parents. I know the time is coming closer for that terrible day, and it scares me beyond belief.


    21)  What lifestyle change have you meant to make for a while now?

Like many American's, I know there are several things that I should change. But, there are things I want to change but can't for reasons beyond my control. For example, I can buy prepared meals for about $1 each for my daughter and myself, but if I want to buy healthy food, I have to spend three times as much or more. Many families across America are forced to choose less healthy options to be able to feed their families.

I am in the process of building a new home as well as a garden where I can grow most of my own fruits and vegetables. The garden will be right out front of the front door and will be able to produce food year-round. Elizabeth, my daughter, is looking forward to being able to help grow things in our garden. Even my youngest nephew wants to be able to grow things.


    22)  How do you hope you will change as a person during your term as president?

I have learned much throughout my life so far, but I know that there is a lot I still do not know. I have never held a seat of office, and I have no idea what to expect from being president. I desire to take on this responsibility to show the people of America and the world that everyday people can take action against oppression and tyranny, even in today's world.

Please, do not get me wrong here; I am not condiluted. I do expect to grow as a person and learn much during my time as president. I am even not so diluted to believe that all of my ideas are correct, not by a long shot. Who is to say that any of my ideas will help America as a whole? But we will never know for sure until I try. Since my birth, we have had six presidents, and they have made contributions to this country. Some of these contributions have been great ideas that were received well. Some ideas were bad for the country and the world.


    23)  What is the most surprising self-realization you have had?

Discovering one's own self is always surprising. I am no different. I grew up believing I was always supposed to be a man. I was supposed to be the son my father always wanted. But, after thirty-five years, I realized that I was killing myself by not letting the real me out. I watched those around me living life and finding happiness. I watched in shame and jealousy as others lived free and happy, wondering why I could not find the same for myself.

Once I shredded my shell and started living as myself, I found that life became more natural for me to live and be happy about who I am. I was able to find peace in my life and satisfaction in my heart. I have discovered that I have a strength I did not know I had. I am a person with the power of the mind and will I never knew before. I found that the woman I am is someone who loves others, cares about what is essential, and who knows what she wants.


    24)  What are you most insecure about?

Suppose I could ever find someone to love me. Growing up, I had a dream of what my life should be. I had an idea of my perfect wedding, one held in the forest while standing over a river or on a lake. I envision white roses and pedals along the walkway and benches that look as though they are made of twigs. White candles and an arch laced with white roses over the marital altar. For the house, I envision a sizeable Victorian Home in the forest with a stream running along one side. A long winding drive with a small flower garden in the driveway center and a herb garden in the side yard. An arch bridge that goes over the stream to a tree fort for the children. But, at 40 years old, I am beginning to wonder if I will ever see any of it.

Everyone I have ever loved has been the wrong one. For example, one tried to make me chose between her and my family. A boyfriend I had could not handle that fact. I was learning how to deal with being raped when I was younger. My latest disaster was the worst I have ever been through in my life. After nearly a year and a half together, my 50-year-old boyfriend started cheating on another woman half my age, but that was not the worse part. Rather than ending things with like a normal person, he decided to steal everything he could get his hands on and sold them. Once I found out, I took it to the courts. I spent over a year waiting for a judgment. Then one finally came down; After stealing nearly $16,000 of things, the judge only ordered restitution in the amount of $1,600.

I have to wonder if there is something wrong with me or if I attract the wrong kind of people with all of this.


    25)  What are you afraid people see when they look at you?

I fear that people will only decide to see a freak of nature and humanity. Shortly after starting my transition nearly six years ago, I had people claiming to be Christians start telling me that I was a freak of nature, that I was the personification of evil. Growing up, I heard it said many times that gays and transvestites are things created by Satan. I repeatedly heard how allowing yourself to feel that you might be gay or a transvestite is nothing more than the work of the devil.

For years I suppressed the feelings I felt deep within me. I crushed my emotions simply because a guy is not supposed to show them. I spent decades living a lie in misery simply because I allowed others to tell me whom I am supposed to be instead of defining myself as a human being.

Life is too short to allow others to define who you should be. Why should people be labeled as male or female, white or black, Asian or Mexican, Christian or Atheist? We are all the same, we all bleed the same, we all breathe the same air, we all live on the same planet, so why can't we all be who we are and stop being what others believe we should be?
