PRESS RELEASE


Rogers Points to the Future, While Texas Democrats Crash

March 18, 2014 (EIRNS)—This release was issued today by the Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee.

At the end of an intense five-month campaign, LaRouche Democrat Kesha Rogers told participants at her victory party on election night that their activity has changed the world.

“My U.S. Senate campaign was not about an election, she said, but about a mission, of giving the United States a future. We defied the odds by getting into the runoff, and we ran a campaign in which we told the truth about the existential crises facing the nation, and the enormous potential for the future, once we defeat the Anglo-Dutch Empire and impeach its puppet, Obama. We made this the issue, and in the end, nearly 3 in 10 Democrats who voted in the runoff responded to my call for his impeachment.”

“ We proved, by running my campaign this way, that a growing minority of voters will respond to ‘big ideas.’ ”

Rogers highlighted some of the events which demonstrated that potential. She spoke of how she had been moved by meeting with veterans, whose initial skepticism about her, and politics in general, changed dramatically, into supportive emotional outbursts, as they were inspired by her appeal to their higher qualities of patriotism over parties. She recalled this same quality of response throughout the campaign, as she addressed desperate people, suffering under the worsening effects of the economic blowout of 2008, who have become demoralized about their present circumstances, and unable to even think about the future.

“What they are looking for is leadership that can create optimism about the future. What we initiated with this campaign,”

she concluded,

“did not end tonight. We have proven that the spirit of the Kennedy years can still be tapped, and that the desire for scientific and technological progress inspires real hope for a better future. I will not stop fighting for that,”

she said.
