General Bio: Kurt Canning was born in Jacksonville, Florida on November 15, 1965. Through his childhood he experienced such things as the Nixon scandle ,segregation policies, and immigration reform. Even as a kid in the mid 70's, it horrified him to think that he was raised in a place as segregated and hateful as Jacksonville. From there, he vowed to never hate people because of their personal differences. At age nine, he got his first in depth look at the bible. He soon realized it hated people who thought differently than god, Kurt then said that he's been an athiest ever since. He became first intrested in politics in 1980. He wasn't to fond of Jimmy Carter or Ronald Reagan which lead to his statement that, "They were both to far one way or another on seemingly every issue."

 Canning cast his first vote in 1984 for Walter Mondale. He says, "I didn't keep up with the election all that well, I was busy working. I just remember watching Mondale during his speeches, I figured he had some good ideas and enough charisma to win, turns out I had them confused." Canning then voted for Dukakis in 88', and Perot in 92/96'. In 2000 Canning thought to himself a run for president. He soon disclaimed intrest and cast his vote for Ralph Nader. During his breif inspection of a candidacy he thought the issues that bugged him were the issues that no other politician would address. 

 Then in September of 2003, he started the party of ultra-moderates; the Centrist Equality Party. However,  Canning also felt the need to target fellow athiests and he is now helping remove religion and other personal choices of that nature out of goverment and out of our budget. Canning is a fairly charasmatic and sometimes an eccentric candidate that claims he will never change his veiws..."I may not be mainstream, but if you give me a chance the mainstream will mold to fit our moderates once again." Canning's run for 2004 is looking well, as is the groundwork for 2008.
