WAYNE ALLYN ROOT: The Right Choice for LP National Chairman
by Dr. John Hospers
In these precarious times, with the future of freedom, liberty and America herself hanging in the balance by the barest of threads held in the hands of self-serving enemies and traitors of this nation – I hear the voice of hope, and that of a patriot in the person of Wayne Allyn Root.
My steady support for Mr. Root’s political positions and ambitions are reinforced each time I hear him speak or read his commentaries, editorials and writings. Root’s words ring with truth, reflecting the values of libertarianism the political philosophy, as well as the well-defined original Libertarian Party principles, of which I am proud to say I helped craft long ago.
A small central government, states’ rights, individual freedom, national security, and especially an immediate cessation of the insane spending and bankrupting of America purposefully perpetrated by the current administration. This is what Root understands better than any other candidate seeking the LP National Chair.
A prime reason I’m confident in Root as compared to others seeking the office is because Root is a consistent, telegenic presence on the airwaves – where he clearly states principles with which I strongly agree. While others profess views in the name of libertarianism that ring of anarchy and other radical positions that would be suicidal for America at this time, Root is practical in his thinking. He’s not one of those who practice ‘ostrich’ politics by sticking his head in the ground on issues involving our national security in the face of dire threats from abroad.
Root is a communicator of the right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Root’s frequent television and talk radio appearances are always on target. His website ROOT4AMERICA.com is unrivaled by any others seeking LP Chair;he is an unwavering supporter of the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the separation of powers; that element of checks and balances being stolen more each day by the thieves and liars who now dictate to US from Capitol Hill.
I fear the LP is running out of time. The irrational want to keep the party small so they may appear to be ‘big fish’. Between now and 2012, the LP can gain power. People want smaller government and those governing they know they can trust.
This is why I urge all right-thinking LP members to join me in giving the strongest support possible to Wayne Allyn Root, a high profile, dynamic, pragmatic voice for economic and personal freedom so desperately needed by the LP and USA..
