According to Ready's campaign manager Harry Hughes, Ready filed to run as a Democrat on January 17th, 2012. He supports legalizing marijuana, considers himself a civil libertarian, and has reached out to the Occupy movement in Phoenix, earning at least acceptance by some of them. On his Facebook campaign page, Ready expresses concern for the welfare of the homeless, drug addicts, and the mentally ill. Even though Ready remains unconditionally pro-White, he's conscious of the fact that he will have to respond to all people if elected, and so he's reaching out to the Black community to better understand their concerns and brainstorm how to use their help in combating Mexican drug cartels. The latter isn't just for show, either; for over a year, there's been a long-running thread authored by him on Stormfront in which he actively promotes the idea that Blacks can be an ally in our own racial struggle. The thread has attracted mixed reaction as many racially-conscious Whites are so repulsed by Black ghetto culture that any interaction, no matter how slight, is unthinkable.

J.T. Ready's activities with the U.S. Border Guard solidify his qualifications for the job. Ready has participated in recurring patrols to interdict illegal aliens in all types of weather; you can view numerous photos of his activities HERE. When his U.S. Border Guard encounters illegals, they detain them, give them food and water if needed, and turn them over to the responsible immigration authorities. By communicating his extensive patrol knowledge to the sheriff's deputies, he will improve their own law enforcement skills, and Pinal County could soon cease to be a major smuggling corridor out of Mexico.
New Times blogger Stephen Lemons did pose some questions to Ready. When asked why he was switching from the Republican to the Democratic Party, Ready said, "It's the party of Jim Crow, Robert Byrd, and George Wallace. You gotta bring it home, know what I mean?" Lemons praises Ready as intelligent, media-savvy, and a practiced public speaker, suggesting that he's a far better communicator than Russell Pearce will ever be. But even though he's running as a Democrat, J.T. Ready will still have to gather signatures to get his name on the primary ballot, though the precise number has yet to be determined. Pinal County Elections spokeswoman Becky Canalez estimated it would be somewhere between 262 and 5,233 signatures from qualified electors. But ready is allowed to raise money; wonder if he'll take advantage of Arizona's Clean Elections law to help raise more money?
J.T. Ready is already picking up some support in the New Times, and posts a few comments of his own:

Maybe Multicam like when he came out and defended our 1st Amendment Freedoms at the Occupy Rally? And he would probably outfit the SO Deputies in it as well, that way they don't get shot and nearly murdered by drug runners in the desert anymore
