Brett Rogers loves helping people succeed—especially helping conservative grassroots candidates succeed at winning elections.

For the past decade, the Iowa native has been applying his 35 years of enterprise data expertise and strategic marketing experience to helping conservative causes in Texas.

“I’m routinely asked for advice and help with all levels of campaigns, candidates, and organizations,” Brett said.

Brett first got involved in politics back in Iowa, when a friend asked him to help with data in a race.

“I was a fan of the pork-busters movement to end earmarking,” he said.

He also helped start the Tea Party in Iowa, a movement that fit his political philosophy.

“Everyone should be as free as possible,” he said. “The idea that government would encumber anyone from realizing their potential really irks me. No one has that right. Government should be limited, not people.”

Brett is now a veteran of more than 60 campaigns.

As a grassroots activist, he’s done everything: data, marketing, video, graphic design, website, strategy, innovative solutions, block-walking, phones, public speaking, event organization, coordinating volunteers.

“Whatever needs doing,” he says.

He also offers free candidate training in the DFW area, where he and his wife Nicole have lived for the past year.

The goal of all his activism is to shrink government.

“No one except the establishment and the ignorant think government needs growing,” he said. “The founders were exactly right: At best, government is a necessary evil, so it is best kept as small as possible.”

Brett says a grassroots activist is someone who the government has finally made really angry.

If you’re reading this, you’ve been negatively affected by some level of government. None of that will change unless you get active. We all have an oar to pull in righting the direction of this ship, so find your oar and start pulling with all your might. Reach out to me and I’ll help you. Together, we can do this—just as those patriots did almost 250 years ago.

“The founders gave us a peaceful means of revolution,” he added. “Let’s use it. Me, I refuse to quit this fight. I want to join with those who are as persistent and relentless as I am.”
