Alaskan Independence Party Platform & Planks

The platform of the AIP is, as one would expect, centered on Alaskan issues. Although widely thought to be a secessionist movement, we make great efforts to emphasize that our primary goal is merely a vote on secession, something that Alaskans were denied during the founding of the state. While a plebiscite was, in fact, held in Alaska at the state’s inception in 1958, Alaskan residents were not given the proper choice between statehood, commonwealth status, or complete separation — something which has been granted to other U.S. territories, such as Puerto Rico.

Alaska Territorial Guard

We’re petitioning to honor the Alaska Territorial Guard’s legacy and suggest solutions to strengthen defense capabilities, including funding for training and infrastructure and exploring 3D printing for firearms components with strict quality controls and safety protocols.

Sovereign Silver Fund

We advocate for converting the entire Permanent Fund into silver bullion to protect against currency devaluation. This move, distributing about 4,400 ounces per Alaskan, aims to secure fiscal independence and safeguard the state’s sovereignty from federal influences.

Judicial Integrity

Courts should act so as not to appear to condone or be associated with unlawful acts by government agents. SCO 1993 is a violation of this trust.

Who was Joe Vogler?

Joe Vogler was born on April 24, 1913, in Barnes, Kansas. One of five children raised on a Kansas farm, he learned to work hard and think for himself. In 1929, at 16 years of age, Joe Vogler attended the University of Kansas on a scholarship. He graduated in five years with a law degree and was admitted to the Kansas State Bar at the age of 21.

Vogler came to Alaska in March of 1942 and worked for the Army engineers at Ladd Air Field in Fairbanks until 1951 when he began mining on Homestake Creek. He spent fifty years “moving dirt” as a miner and real estate developer in Interior Alaska.

Bring Vogler Home!

In a 1991 interview currently housed at the Oral History Program in the Rasmuson Library at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, Vogler is recorded as saying “The fires of hell are frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American government. And I won’t be buried under their damn flag. I’ll be buried in Dawson, [Canada]. And when Alaska is an independent nation they can bring my bones home.

The formation and history of the AIP largely revolve around Joe Vogler, a plain-spoken gold miner, non-practicing attorney and charismatic icon of local politics who ran unsuccessfully for governor three times between 1974 and 1986. After getting 4,770 votes and 5% as an independent in the 1974 election — a race decided by less than 300 votes — Vogler formed Alaskans for Independence (AFI) in 1978 in order to promote the idea of an “Independent Nation of Alaska.” Vogler later formed the AIP in order to support the more political and campaign-related aspects of the Alaskan independence movement and his candidacies for governor. His success in the 1986 campaign, in which he received 10,013 votes — 5.6% of the total — retained “official party” status for the AIP in Alaska, placing it alongside the Republicans and Democrats. Vogler served as Chairman of the Party from 1986 until he was unjustly murdered in 1993.

Why Vote Alaskan Independence Party?

Ideologically, AIP is considered to be a hybrid of conservative Republicanism, populism and libertarianism. Among the issues advocated by the party: the direct popular election of the state attorney general and all judges, the right to keep and bear arms, the privatization of government services, the right to home schooling by parents, and a constitutional amendment to ban property taxes. The AIP, following Vogler’s infamous confrontations with officials from the National Park Service and the Environmental Protection Agency, remains steadfastly opposed to environmental regulations and actively promotes the private ownership and widespread development of Alaskan land. Sixty-six percent of the land in Alaska is owned by the federal government and it has fewer miles of highways than New Hampshire.
