John McAfee plans to run for the 2016 Presidential elections under his own created “Cyber Party”. He looks pretty motivated and owns his confidence to his friends and followers. He remarks that he decided to run for the president after being encouraged by “almost everyone” he knows and had met.
McAfee will soon release his “Cyber Party” manifesto and make a point through his stringent privacy backing policies. McAfee says he has filed his Form 2 with the FEC, although FEC are yet to confirm that.
