InfoCharles Jay is a ideological libertarian -- and was an on-and-off member of the Libertarian Party since the 1980s -- but he ended his bid for the LP Vice Presidential nomination in May 2004 when he was offered the Personal Choice Party's (PCP) Presidential nomination. Boxing and gambing are Jay's big passions in his professional life, and they clearly cross over into his political views. He supports the "reform" of boxing by removing much state government involvement in oversight and opposing any proposals to federalize boxing oversight in the US. His top issue, however, is to permit legalized gambling nationwide. Jay explains: "Gambling is a libertarian pursuit, not only for the vendor, but also, and more importantly, for the consumer as well. The issue of legalized gambling serves as a 'prism' ... by which we can take a look at many other issues that are of great interest to those who prefer Personal Choice, and which should be of interest to ALL citizens." By this, he explains, a candidate (like himself) who is pro-gambling should also naturally be pro-choice, pro-free speech, pro-privacy rights, pro-privatization, pro-personal responsibility, pro-business, pro-gun rights, and against legislating morality, high taxes, and wasteful spending. The PCP already has 2004 ballot status in Utah, so it ensures the Jay-Chambers ticket will at least appear on the ballot there. Jay also plans to seek PCP ballot status in a few other states. The PCP was only launched in 2003, so Jay is their first Presidential nominee.
