Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Steger's campaign website listed the following issues:[3]

  • Impeach Obama - Stop World War III: "Obama has no basis for being President of the United States. He has abused the most vulnerable of our people, ushering them to the figurative gas-chambers of either Wall St.'s looted and impoverished cities and states, or to the Wall St. controlled medical-triage system now termed Obamacare."
  • Destroy the British Empire: "The British Empire is nothing less than the ruling system of slavery and population reduction, enforced by puppet Presidents such as the Bushes, Dick Cheney, and Obama. Add to these traitors the process of perpetual war unleashed since World War I, and excepting the Presidencies of Franklin Roosevelt and John Kennedy, you have an entire century of global genocide."
  • Bankrupt Wall Street: "The international financial institutions and the ruling monarchies of Britain and Holland - the very ones who supported the Hitler dictatorship - are blackmailing our nation and the nations of Europe with either mass murder of the poor, elderly, and sick - or - a nuclear war of extinction with Russia and China."
  • End the Drought - Build NAWAPA XXI: "With a severe water crisis throughout the western states, a unified campaign has been launched by Michael Steger, candidate for Congress in San Francisco, and Kesha Rogers, candidate for the U.S. Senate in Texas, to unite the western states, and the nation, for the development of the largest water delivery program ever designed, Nuclear NAWAPA XXI. We intend to put an end to this green genocide program, and put our nation back to work."
  • Fusion Energy: "Atop Telegraph Hill, Christopher Columbus sits looking out across the Pacific to China and all of Asia. This was true centuries ago when Europeans looked across the Atlantic to a New World free of financial and political tyranny. Today, the potential for collaboration with China, Russia, South Korea, Japan, India and others, presents the greatest potential for growth and development in the United States today."
