Throughout the 2008 United States Presidential election campaign, Wikinews reporters have been talking to candidates of all political stripes, looking for their vision of America and campaign stories. This series continues now with Jackson Kirk Grimes of the United Fascist Union (UFU).

Mr. Grimes dictated the answers to Heather Goldsmith, his party's Propaganda Minister, who transcribed them for Wikinews.

Grimes has been the director and CEO of the UFU since 1996, and ran for the President's office in 2000 and 2004. Grimes is known internally as His Highness or His Excellency. He was a Storm Trooper for the Fascist Freedom Front, from 1967-1975. He was a Corporal for the United States Army (18th Corps of Army Engineers) from 1968-1972, certified stock broker in the 1990s, a member of the Screen Actors' Guild since 1996, and received his GED from the Ohio State Department of Education in 1991.

Note that Grimes appears not to have qualified for either ballot status or as a formally recognized write-in candidate in any state, according to Politics1.

Interview

Why should Americans vote for you, your party, and your campaign's platform?

Fascism is the one economic system that's proven to work, and work well in country after country every time any nation has been fortunate enough to have a fascist head of state. Corporate Statism is the only economic system that has actually created ECONOMIC EQUALITY in all lands it's governed from Italy under our founder, Benito Mussolini, to Iraq, where Saddam Hussein was our head of state. If the Americans know what is good for them they had better put Jackson Grimes in the White House this time, and put an end to the shell game the political pigs in power now, are running on the masses.

The election is nearing, and campaigns for all parties are reaching their final leg. What are your plans for the remaining weeks of the campaign? How will you continue to build on the awareness and momentum of your campaign?

Mr. Grimes will continue to go anywhere that they pay him to be, in America & Canada. Of course, we will continue to court the press with form letters, do interactive radio shows, create blogs, and do whatever is necessary to make sure Jackson Grimes becomes the next President of the United States of America.

If you aren't elected President in this election, can we expect to see your return to the ballot in 2012?

No.

If readers are interested in your campaign, in what ways can they get involved?
