Root: ‘Devastating Rebuke for Mainstream Media’

By Wayne Allyn Root, Former Libertarian Vice Presidential Nominee 

Newt Gingrich may have won South Carolina. But this wasn’t a Newt victory, as much as it was a devastating rebuke to the national media. 

Study the poll numbers. Yes, Romney really dropped the ball with the tax return and 15% capital gains issues, but the numbers started flipping from a Romney landslide to a Newt Gingrich landslide only after the ABC television interview with Newt’s ex-wife.… Read more ...

ROOT: Supercommittee sellout?

Timid GOP members may cave to avoid across-the-board cuts

By Wayne Allyn Root – The Washington Times

The congressional supercommittee tasked with cutting the debt is almost out of time. Good. Run out the clock. If its members do not come to an agreement, we’ll be forced to accept automatic across-the-board cuts to spending – including defense spending.… Read more ...

Wayne Root: The Perfect President: “Herman Paul”

By Wayne Allyn Root:

The mainstream media seems to love the traditional status quo robots (Bush, Clinton, Gore, Bush Jr., Obama, Romney) who got us into this economic crisis of epic proportions — while despising and disregarding non-traditional candidates such as Ron Paul and Herman Cain.

 They make sure that only a Mitt Romney or Barack Obama with a certain look (well-groomed, attractive, nice suits, good hair), certain education (always Ivy League), and certain views (support the Fed, support corporate welfare, won’t cut spending too much, won’t rock the boat) are portrayed as “popular mainstream candidates.”

 The candidates who don’t fit this traditional role are portrayed as crazy, kooky, and extreme with “no chance of winning.” 

Yet, those status quo elitists with their Ivy League degrees and orthodox views led us right into this Great Depression II.… Read more ...

Wayne Root: Washington Times OpEd — Bin Laden dead, Uncle Sam slow

Like the rest of America, I cheered at the news of the killing of Osama bin Laden. I was thrilled. It made my night. And the next day, too. One of the great vile, evil villains of modern history had been eliminated. If you weren’t celebrating, there is a chip missing from your DNA.… Read more ...

Libertarian Party: In the Middle East, it’s time to cut and run like Ronald Reagan did in 1984

Dear Friend of Liberty,

In the Middle East, it’s time to cut and run like Ronald Reagan did in 1984.

Wayne Root Editorial: “It’s Time for a REAGAN Moment: Wisconsin Teachers– “YOU’RE FIRED!””

By Wayne Allyn Root, 2008 Libertarian Vice Presidential Nominee and Best-Selling Author of “The Conscience of a Libertarian” 

Ronald Reagan stood up to the Air Traffic Controllers and in response to the threat of a strike simply fired them all. Can you imagine? Air Traffic Controllers- unique individuals with rare and valuable skills, thought irreplaceable, fired en masse.… Read more ...

David Nolan proposes resolution for LNC consideration

As reported by George Phillies in IPR comments, Libertarian Party co-founder David Nolan has proposed the following resolution to be considered at this weekend’s LNC meeting:

“WHEREAS the Libertarian Party can grow only by attracting new members and supporters, and

“WHEREAS libertarianism is a unique political philosophy, distinct from both contemporary liberalism and contemporary conservatism, and

“WHEREAS we need the support of both former liberals and former conservatives who have come to realize that libertarianism and the Libertarian Party offer a better path to achieving a just, humane and prosperous society

“The Libertarian National Committee hereby resolves that our party, its representatives and staff should always state clearly and unequivocally that we welcome individuals from across the political spectrum who now accept the libertarian principles of self-ownership and non-aggression.”

Although no particular person or incident is mentioned in the resolution, the speculation has been that it was, like the recently passed Florida LP resolution to boot Wayne Root off the LNC and LNCC, precipitated by statements Mr.… Read more ...

Ralph Nader: ‘Bush At Large’

By Ralph Nader at Nader.org:

George W. Bush is on a roll—a money roll with a $7 million advance for his book Decision Points and a rehabilitation roll to paint his war crimes as justifiable mass-slaughter and torture.

His carefully chosen interviewers—NBC’s Matt Lauer and Oprah Winfrey—agreed to a safe pre-taping to avoid demonstrations and tough questions.… Read more ...
