(Newser) – The Republican nomination race is already kinda like a reality show, according to some, so this should come as little surprise: Pastor Terry Jones is joining the fray. Jones, better known for his affinity for pairing Korans and matches, announced his 2012 plans yesterday, ABC Action News reports. His platform includes deporting all illegal immigrants, lowering corporate taxes, and bringing all military home until America is financially stable.

“Please financially support us as we continue our stand against radical Islam,” says a press release (Jones will need some serious cash to compete in the GOP's burgeoning ad war). Jones tells WOKV he is running because the current candidates are being dishonest, and he confirms he will run as a Republican. Interested?
