Biography of Nicholas Ruiz from Nicholas Ruiz III, Democratic candidate for Congress

[2012 Bio] Progressives have to look forward. There is a huge independently progressive and Democratic constituency that is not being adequately represented by the Democratic Party as it stands today. Constituents on the Left are hungry for the real thing.


Real progressive politics. Real democracy. Real progress.


In 2012, I aim to offer a progressive, democratic agenda for all citizens – regardless of their party affiliation. I will offer my candidacy, on the ballot, as a Democrat.


There is a historically rich tradition and legacy in Democratic politics, if we have the courage to reclaim it.


Let’s do it. Or as someone famous once said, not so long ago:  “It’ll be – just like starting over.”


Dr. Ruiz (Ph.D in Humanities, Florida State University, 2006; MLA in Liberal Arts, University of North Carolina, 2003; BS in Molecular and Microbiology, University of Central Florida, 1996) was born in New York City in 1970 and lives in New Smyrna Beach, FL, USA.


He is the author of America in Absentia (2008), Integral Reality (with Robert Hassan, forthcoming, 2011) and The Metaphysics of Capital, (2006).  He is also the editor of Kritikos.


He is married to Danielle Ruiz, and has two sons, Nicholas and Kai.
