Blake Ashby is the Reform Party candidate with the best chance of securing national
attention for the party and possibly even changing the outcome of this election.
The Reform Party candidate isn’t going to win this election. But we do have a
chance to do something very important for our country – force the Democratic
and Republican nominees to have a more honest debate about the state of our
economy and the direction of our country. Force the two major parties to again
have a conversation based on economic realism instead of their current cartoonish
economic theories that have only passing connection to the world in which we live.
And if we can secure sufficient attention in those states in which the Reform Party is
on the ballot, we even have a chance to once again have the Reform Party swing the
outcome of the election.
Blake Ashby is the candidate that can change the debate. Blake Ashby is the Reform
Party candidate that has the best chance of changing the outcome of this election.
A dynamic speaker with a gift for capturing the essence of a problem, Blake was
angry enough with the Bush Administration that he ran as a protest candidate in the
2004 Republican Primaries; his harsh appraisal of the dangers of the Administration’s
economic policies have unfortunately proven to be true. Twenty years ago he co-authored
a book on U.S. History and the evolution of Liberalism that anticipated the challenges
now facing our country.
A successful entrepreneur, Blake is the president and co-founder of a medical
software company that has developed a transparency and engagement platform
for group health plans that offers a free-market solution to rising healthcare costs.
Over the past twenty year he has participated in the startup and operation of several
dozen businesses as a consultant, shareholder or principal, including one of the first
DSL providers in the Midwest, what is now one of the largest Internet backbone
providers in the U.S. and a data standards development organization for the meat
and poultry industry. He has unique combination of real world understanding of
how business actually works as well as an understanding of economic theory. It is
this unique combination of experience and understanding that will gives Blake the
best chance of changing the economic debate in our country.
