Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Rogers' campaign website lists the following policies:[4]

  • Impeach Obama
Excerpt: "President Barack H. Obama is willfully advancing the post-9/11 banker's dictatorship initiated by his predecessor, George W. Bush, Jr., and must be legally removed from office immediately, by impeachment, resignation, or Section IV of the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution."
  • Glass-Steagall
Excerpt: "Glass-Steagall makes it illegal to bailout, or bail-in, Wall Street investments with the commercial assets of depositors. Reinstating this law will reveal that upwards of 98% of the world's money is really just worthless paper, and cause it to disappear, as if waking up from a nightmare."
  • Constitutional Credit
Excerpt: "The entire, global monetary empire of Wall Street is hopelessly bankrupt and in the process of near term collapse. Immediate, emergency measures must be taken to protect the sovereign welfare of the United States citizenry, and protect the value of our currency from collapsing with Wall Street."
  • A Real Classical Education
Excerpt: "I fully support the widespread revival of a Classical, truly human culture, one which cherishes and nurtures the creative spark of reason inherent in every individual human being through tasteful art, scientific discovery, and statecraft."
  • Fusion Economy
Excerpt: "I am committed to bringing controlled thermonuclear fusion energy into use as fast as possible. Our nation needs fusion, both a source of electricity, and as a strategically crucial objective for the future progress of our nation. Such a revolutionary transformation as this could never be squeezed out of taxes. Our only recourse is to use the American Credit System to create a capital budget, outside of the year to year fiscal budget, specifically for bringing thermonuclear fusion technology online, as fast as possible."
