President George Washington was a ‘no party’ independent who believed party conflicts would return our country to despotism. George Washington strongly discouraged political parties; he knew over time that parties would "subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government".
Today we are in the 21st century and Tami Stainfield has filed as a ‘no party’ candidate for the Presidency of the United States. Tami has become an independent voice that recognized our current political, judicial and corporate policies and behaviors were shifting towards oligarchy and authoritarian principles. She believes Americans can prevent this movement – by electing leaders that defend:
To provide additional insight into Tami’s personal and political views we would like to provide a short autobiography.
Tami Stainfield was born on July 20, 1962 at Elliott Community Hospital in Keene, New Hampshire. She lived in New Hampshire for her entire childhood and was educated at the following public schools: Claremont, Walpole and Fall Mountain Regional. Today, she resides in Keene, New Hampshire, a small New England city.
Her parents and grandparents never attended college; however, her uncle and younger sister had the opportunity to graduate from Case Institute of Technology and the University of Louisville, J.B. Speed School of Engineering.
Her deceased mother, Helen, is Polish American and her father, Ray, is English American. Tami has one grandfather who was born in Poland during the 19th century and all of her grandparents lived through the Great Depression, World War I and II. Her parents lived in Dorsett and Ashtabula, Ohio until the 1960s; from there they moved to New Hampshire and retired to Kentucky in 1998. In addition to her parents, Tami has two sisters, one niece and one aunt and uncle; they reside in St. Louis, Pittsburgh, and Cadiz.
Tami’s early childhood was characterized by activities centered on family, education, community, wildlife and agriculture. Walpole, New Hampshire was a rural village that was patriotic, compassionate and tolerant. Tami’s disposition and character are reflective of growing up in a small agricultural village and from living in a state where the principles of the Constitution of the United States were honored. - ‘Live Free or Die’.
Her interest in politics started in eighth grade, when she participated in the Know Your Government Tour. Additionally, she was a member of the Girl Scouts and 4-H civic organizations. Tami was recognized as an all-around student; however, she excelled in athletics. In 1979, she participated in the New England Track & Field Championship and in 1980 she was recognized as a High School All-American.
In 1980, Tami went to Indiana State University where she received an athletic scholarship for field hockey and in 1985 she was awarded a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science.
Since her graduation from college, Tami has lived and worked in nine states, with careers in banking, education, healthcare, information technology, building automation and energy conservation. She has eighteen years of enterprise selling experience, focused on analyzing and providing strategic and consultative solutions for business problems.
She worked for three Fortune 500 Companies, Johnson Controls, NCR and Sodexho, and sold to numerous multinationals. Additionally, Tami worked for several small and regional companies, including Cheshire County Savings Bank, National Education Training Group and CBT Systems (now known as Skillsoft).
Tami’s professional achievements can be attributed to her excellent analytical, communication, managerial, negotiation and technical proficiencies.
In 2003, after achieving another year of financial and business success, Tami left her comfortable corporate life to discover Africa. In 2009, she received a Masters in Development from the Political Studies Department of The University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. Her research topic was, Why did the World Health Organization (WHO) and Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) endorse male circumcision as a public health initiative for HIV prevention in sub-Saharan Africa?
Tami has traveled extensively, visiting Australia, Bali, Bahamas, Botswana, Canada, France, Ireland, Islands of Tahiti, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritius, Mexico, Namibia, Nevis, Rwanda, South Africa, Spain, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, United Kingdom, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Each unique experience gave Tami an opportunity to learn how ‘the people’ view and form opinions on culture and business; and whether those opinions were factual in nature.
Additionally, the years spent in Africa provided Tami with an opportunity to witness democracies in their infancies. She was fascinated with exploring how and if the American principles of democracy were similar or different than African democracy and policy making. Furthermore, she was able to utilize her business expertise to assess how China, India, Europe and the United States participate and influence developing countries. Tami was disappointed with the United States’ strategy, which primarily focused on humanitarian aid instead of enduring societal improvements.
It is Tami’s opinion that globalization has a powerful global consortium comprised of Academics, Governments, Media and Humanitarians. She believes their teachings, policies, and actions encourage an economic, humanitarian and political environment that creates global apartheid. Where, a small group of individuals from different countries, nationalities, religions, and races use propaganda, fear and power to segregate countries, corporations, organizations and individuals for the benefit of a few.
Uniquely, Tami wants to bring an independent solution-based approach to politics, based on acute reasoning and logic. Tami wants to remind Americans and the World that our strength was not founded in wealth, power or superiority. We had a group of men who witnessed, experienced, and lived through tyranny, the Constitutional Framers understood an enlightened democracy must ensure all individuals life, liberty and happiness, in order to avoid civil unrest – an observation that remains priceless. She will utilize the Supreme Court definition of liberty, as the cornerstone for her Presidency:
“Without doubt, it denotes not merely freedom from bodily restraint, but also the right of the individual to contract, to engage in any of the common occupations of life, to acquire useful knowledge, to marry, establish a home and bring up children, to worship God according to the dictates of his own conscience, and generally to enjoy those privileges long recognized at common law as essential to the orderly pursuit of happiness by free men.” (1923)
Our country was created by and for the people - may you support Tami in her effort to lead a political movement that prioritizes a person’s right to life, liberty, and happiness.
