I don’t have youtube here, and can’t download flash to the hostel’s computer, so I haven’t actually seen it. Let me know if it works.

The Audacity of Union Worship: Obama Declares WAR on China
Obama Makes Tragic Decision to Start Trade War with China To Appease Unions.
Whatever Unions Want, Unions Get from Obama- Even if it Destroys the U.S. Economy.
Obama Thinks Lincoln Saved the Union- The Auto Union, Teachers Union, Government Employees Union.
Is This All Part of a Plan to Destroy Capitalism and Introduce Socialism?
By Wayne Allyn Root, Author
The Conscience of a Libertarian: Empowering the Citizen Revolution with God, Guns, Gambling & Tax Cuts
President Obama’s hero is Abraham Lincoln. But Obama has the central story of Lincoln’s Presidency confused- Lincoln saved “the union”- NOT the auto union, teachers union, or government employees union. President Obama’s leftist love affair with unions has now reached critical mass- I believe it now threatens our economic future. President Obama’s decision to start a full-blown trade war with China, by imposing heavy trade duties on imported Chinese tires, will start an economic war that the U.S. people cannot afford…nor hope to win. It will cost jobs; destroy businesses; hurt U.S. GDP (Gross Domestic Product); and damage the future of our children and grandchildren. But worse, it threatens to plunge the entire world into a global economic catastrophe.
This tragic decision was all based on Obama’s need to impress his union friends and contributors- even at a cost of deepening and lengthening a global depression. Obama continues to follow in the tragic footsteps of FDR, who turned a deep recession into the Great Depression with the exact same gameplan: dramatic increases in government spending; higher taxes on business and the wealthy (who create all the jobs); minimum wage hikes; and protectionism in favor of unions.
Obama’s move to slap tariffs on tires made in China comes in response to a petition from the U.S. Steelworkers Union (which represents workers at many U.S. tire factories). I’m willing to bet that nonstop union lobbying and strong-arming of Obama accompanied that petition.
Obama’s reckless decision will accelerate the deterioration of U.S./China relations- at a time where economic leadership and cooperation among the world’s two greatest economic powers is integral to avoiding a global economic meltdown. China has hinted for months now that it will push for a new world reserve currency. That means (in plain English) that China will start a slow-but-steady sell off of U.S. dollars (they own over $2 trillion of them) – thereby hastening the decline and destruction in the value of the dollar. This is all grave news for U.S. consumers. Worse, China has already reacted to the news of the tariffs by threatening to impose tariffs on the importation of U.S. goods like poultry and autos. We can’t even win wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now Obama wants to plunge us into an economic and trade war with China?
This all happened because President Obama is the most pro-union President in modern history. This is the man who blindly supports “Card Check”- extreme leftist legislation that makes it easy for unions to unionize virtually every business in America (including small businesses with as little as 5 employees).
This is the man who literally stole Chrysler from secured lenders, bankers and shareholders, and handed majority ownership to the auto unions that bankrupted it in the first place.
This is the man leading a Democratic Party that has proposed taxing the health benefits of every American employee- except union members.
This is the man who publicly attacks and humiliates CEO’s for excessive pay, appoints czars to regulate pay at private companies, yet just allowed GM to rescind pay cuts for their employees. Obama supports anything- no matter how reckless and hypocritical- that makes his union supporters and contributors happy. Unions move their strings, and the puppet President opens his mouth.
Obama hasn’t noticed that unions ruined the auto industry- by demanding wages so high they bankrupted the “Big 3” and made American autos too expensive compared to non-union competitors. He hasn’t noticed that teachers unions have damaged-beyond-repair the government-run public school system. Obama sends his two precious daughters to $40,000-per-year private schools, while he condemns poor minority kids in D.C. to failing public schools- all to show his support for the powerful teachers unions. He hasn’t noticed that state and local governments across the USA are going broke because of unfunded liabilities to government employee unions. He hasn’t noticed that unfunded liabilities for federal government union employees now total a staggering $5.3 trillion and threaten to bankrupt the federal budget. In response to all of this economic misery, Obama hires more government union employees.
Obama doesn’t notice any of this because his words don’t match his actions. He talks like an eloquent and moderate statesman. But his actions more resemble a leftist political hack. His speech on Labor Day in front of union members sounded more like Hugo Chavez or Fidel Castro. This man has never met a union he didn’t like- no matter how much destruction and havoc they cause to companies, industries or the U.S. economy.
The question is…is Obama really this ignorant or reckless? Of course not. Actually I believe that my college classmate (Columbia University, Class of ’83) is brilliant. Nothing he does is out of ignorance or naiveté. Therefore this must all be part of a well thought-out plan to destroy the U.S. economy. Why? I can only surmise that Obama’s plan from day one has been to wreck capitalism; destroy Wall Street and the banks (the very heart of capitalism); expand the size and scope of government dramatically; get the American people so fearful as to demand bigger government to “save” them and get involved in every aspect of their lives; and thereby introduce Socialism without debate. It’s one heck of a plan…and it’s playing out right now, right in front of all of our eyes.

ONLY YOU CAN CHANGE THE TWO PARTY SYSTEM: STOP THE ADDICTION!
Vote Allyn Wayne Root W.A.R.
Nice to know that Wayne has shills, too.
Hand puppetry: not just for the big two parties anymore!
Mr. Root needs to remember that union people vote!
Yes the Union people vote alright, for socialism
Yes they vote wrote;
“Yes the Union people vote alright, for socialism”
Long time ago a fellow Libertarian I knew who worked as a longshoreman on the docks and was a union member died and left the LP a sizable amonut in his will.
Maybe you need to expand your worldview a bit and not be so closed minded.
J . Napolitano endorsed Waynes book
“Wayne Allyn Root (WAR) means business. In “The Conscience of a Libertarian,” he is declaring WAR on big government, big spending, big taxes, big unions, big business, arrogant career politicians, lawyers, lobbyists, and the media elite. What a refreshing change to read the words and ideas of a small businessman, homeschool dad, son of a butcher, and citizen statesman. This book is a must read for libertarians, conservatives, disillusioned Republicans, independents, and anyone who wants to cut the size and scope of government dramatically, and return power to individuals. Instead of just criticisms, Wayne provides common-sense solutions for limited government, economic and personal freedom, and protecting our Constitution. I can feel our Founding Fathers looking down and smiling.”

Reagan and tariffs. One of Wanye’s heros as I recall.
“Cato Policy Analysis No. 32 January 12, 1984
Taking America for a Ride:
The Politics of Motorcycle Tariffs
by Daniel Klein
Daniel Klein is a graduate student in economics at New York University.
Last spring, the import duties on large motorcycles were raised drastically. By any economic criterion, the new tariff is counterproductive, and the Reagan administration was fully aware of it. The decision is thus an interesting case study in the political economy of protectionism.
Background of the Tariff
In the past three decades the motorcycle market has grown tremendously. The number of American motorcycle registrations has increased from 198,000 in 1945 to 1.4 million in 1965 and to nearly 6 million in 1981.
In the past two years, however, the American motorcycle market has severely contracted. The recession left many young people, the greatest motorcycle-buying age group, with less to spend. Employment in heavyweight-motorcycle production and related activities rose from 2,239 persons in 1977 to 3,110 in 1981, but (as a result of slackened demand) dropped to 1,974 in 1982. (Heavyweight motorcycles have engines with piston displacement of 700 cubic centimeters or more.) From 1981 to 1982, total inventories of unsold heavyweight bikes jumped from 108,000 to more than 200,000. For the first nine months of 1982, hours worked declined 20 percent and wages paid fell 12 percent from the same period in 1981.
The Harley-Davidson Motor Company, the only American company to manufacture motorcycles since 1948, has been hit especially hard. In 1980 the company had record sales of $289 million and pretax earnings of $12.3 million, but in 1982 sales slumped to just over $200 million, causing “substantial losses.” The company operated at a loss in 1981 as well.”
the US invaded Somalia , WTF!! another god damned deathtoll.
I am beginning to suspect that Root has the same ghost/joke writer that “libertarian” Glenn Beck uses as their talking points are so similar. It is especially useful when he identifies what is secretly far left for us.
This nugget was particularly entertaining for me:
“I can only surmise that Obama’s plan from day one has been to wreck capitalism; destroy Wall Street and the banks (the very heart of capitalism)”
Very Beckish indeed. A secret plot by the secret Muslim Marxist to destroy capitalism (as if capitalism exists in America). But wait, didn’t Wall Street donate more to Obama than to McCain? And didn’t Obama support massive bailouts for banks and Wall Street, especially for his pals at Goldman Sachs.
Why it seems almost as if Obama supports state capitalism (aka corporatism, aka fascism) just as much as Bush (who Root supported).
I can understand how Root is worried about our financial relationship with China. After all, who is going to lend Obama the bucks needed to stop the evil Islamofascists through the war on terror, ooops, I mean the overseas contingency plans. Mr. Root has always been quite worried about those Islamofascists – he just doesn’t talk much about it anymore since he finally figured out that it doesn’t play well with libertarians, even dumb ass libertarians that confuse libertarianism with red-state fascism.
Gadzoooks! Thank God Mr. Root has warned us about the tariff on Chinese tires that “threatens to plunge the entire world into a global economic catastrophe.”
That’s right folks, this tire thing could lead to “global economic catastrophe.”
This sounds serious.
I’m also glad Root cleared this taxation and jobs thing up, too.
Obama is using FDR’s gameplan:
“higher taxes on business and the wealthy (who create all the jobs)”
Who knew? I thought small businesses started by regular people created most of the jobs. But Root should know, after all he is both a businessman and a Republican Millionaire. Since the wealthy create ALL the jobs, maybe they should pay no taxes.
Wayne Root on “Fox & Friends” is about as meaningful and newsworthy as Newt Gingrich on Sean Hannity.
Except to LP activists who would resuscitate Benito Mussolini and run him for President if they thought he could get more media exposure.
M. Wilson @7: “Mr. Root needs to remember that union people vote!”
The LP doesn’t care about union voters unless their leadership gets as much media exposure as rightwing ideologues like Wayne Root.
Your real name isn’t Solomon Drek, is it? I’d guess that you made it up, with your last name describing the quality of your posts.
Well @ 17 some people in the LP do care about union voters. Mr Root doe not speak for everyone. He is just one person.
Yes, all union people are for socialism. Sure. Every single one of them. Marching in lockstep.
Where did we find this dumbass?
“This nugget was particularly entertaining for me:
“I can only surmise that Obama’s plan from day one has been to wreck capitalism; destroy Wall Street and the banks (the very heart of capitalism)””
LOL. Now that’s some drek!
Wayne needs to change up his wardrobe–the pinstripes and powder blue ties are getting repetitive.
When/if Newt Gingrich joins or starts an alternative party, or runs as an independent, it will be considered news here.
he does love his pinstripes , they are getting old though

But I gotta admit, his line about czars and serfs is pretty accurate.
