The Veterans Party of America (VPA) is a US minor party with a generally conservative and pro-military platform.
Their elected representatives include Michael Hart, Mayor of Commerce, Oklahoma; Commerce is a former mining town with a population of 2,473, best known for Bonnie and Clyde's visit in 1934 when they killed a peace officer and kidnapped the police chief, to whom they gave a clean shirt.
Chris Keniston, a former US Air Force maintenance supervisor, is their candidate for the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election. He believes in the "necessity and sanctity of both religion and government", job creation, border security, increased defence spending, cyber-security, space exploration, non-interference in global affairs, bans on corporate and union election spending, and the abolition of income tax, but is unconvinced that global warming is real.
