Wayne Allyn Root Archive
Wayne Allyn Root (W.A.R.) is a former Presidential candidate, the 2008 Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee and a Tea Party favorite. He is the ultimate capitalist evangelist: a blue-collar S.O.B. (son of a butcher) turned small businessman, entrepreneur, CEO, home-schooler and citizen politician. Root is a talk-show host, bestselling author, business speaker and TV/radio commentator on business, economics, entrepreneurship and politics. He is a regular guest on Fox News, as well as on hundreds of radio shows across the United States. Root's opinions reach tens of millions of Americans as a regular columnist and commentator for many of the most popular political and business websites, including FoxNews.com. He also writes regularly for The Washington Times. He is the bestselling author of seven books.
Root serves as national spokesman for several companies, including Asset Strategies International, a global precious metals company, and Senior Economic Advisor to Wealth Masters International, a global financial services company. He is also well known in the television and media industries. Root started his career as an anchorman and host for CNBC (then known as Financial News Network). He has hosted, starred and produced many television shows. Today, he is a producer of the highest-rated television show on Travel Channel, "Ghost Adventures."
Because of his success in the diverse fields of business, media, sports, entertainment and publishing, Root was awarded his own 180-pound granite star in the Las Vegas Walk of Stars. Only 50 legends in the history of Las Vegas have received a star on Las Vegas Boulevard. Root joins Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Wayne Newton, Liberace and Dean Martin, along with other icons of business and entertainment. Root's star can be viewed in front of New York New York Resort.
A native New Yorker and graduate of prestigious Columbia University, this capitalist evangelist proudly resides in Nevada, a State with no personal or business income tax. His website is ROOTforAmerica.com. Email this author.
The man whose mediocre Presidential campaign almost sunk the entire GOP can now save it. Even better, the same Mitt Romney, now an unelected private citizen, can also save Detroit — and, by doing so, prove the conservative model for the U.S. economy works and become an American hero.
Mitt Romney was the perfect man to save America. Then Jimmy Carter’s grandson released the tape where Romney discussed “the 47 percent” of Americans who want government to give them checks and will vote for the politician who keeps the checks coming. Romney’s campaign unraveled.
“Sequestration” is just another of President Barack Obama’s scams. There is a long list of other things the American public should panic about. The economy is in free fall. Gas prices are skyrocketing. Wal-Mart calls its sales to start 2013 “a total disaster.”
There are a lot of things you can change in life, but you can’t fix stupid. Barack Obama’s speech Tuesday wasn’t a State of the Union. It was a “State of Denial.” It was denial mixed with delusion. It was a state of addiction to spending.
The rich are fleeing in droves. The Barack Obama tax-and-spend Ponzi scheme is imploding. What changed? The technology revolution has made it possible to do business from places where the taxes are lower (or nonexistent) and where the government treats people better.
For one week, let’s take a break from President Barack Obama and politics. This week is all about the most popular and celebrated event in the world: the Super Bowl. And there is a very special lesson in this year’s game for all of us to study, learn and implement in our lives.
You know that famous TV show “Are you Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” Well that show has inspired me to ask: “Is Obama smarter than a communist?” Many socialist and communist leaders seem to have learned a lesson that Obama has not.
Barack Obama’s Inauguration Day is coming up next week. Despite what the Obama-adoring, Kool-Aid drinking liberal mainstream media tell you, Obama’s inauguration is not a celebration. If the media were honest, we’d declare it a “national day of mourning.”
President Barack Obama understands that he needs “cover” to destroy America. He needs to show that rich people are on his side, that these rich guys agree with him that tax increases on the rich are “fair.” And the rich fat cats of big business will be glad to help him, as long as they share in the spoils.
Let’s look at the facts up close and personal, Jeff Foxworthy style. The comedian has proven with his humor — and without a doubt — who qualifies as a redneck. I’ve put together a list that leaves no doubt that Barack Obama is a socialist, and we are all in big trouble.
