Campaign themes


Roberts's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • The Economic Crisis
Excerpt: "Our economy has been dealt a terrible blow. Nearly 10% of Americans are out of work, and this number jumps to 17% when you factor in Americans who have been out of work so long that they have lost hope of finding a job."
  • The Constitutional Crisis
Excerpt: "I believe that the United States of America is a nation built on the rule of law and founded the social contract that is the US Constitution. The current administration believes in a living constitution and that expansion of the federal government is the cure to all society’s ills."
  • The National Sovereignty Crisis
Excerpt: "I believe that US national sovereignty is absolute and needs to be protected."
