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.

Wayne Allyn Root weighs in on Obamacare: the $17 trillion Trojan horse. It was supposed to save us. But in reality it’s been sent to destroy our economic system, capitalism, and our American way of life.
“California is a bankrupt, insolvent, dysfunctional mess, just like so many actors and actresses is Hollywood: broke with no future,” says Wayne Allyn Root in a commentary for Personal Liberty Digest™. The State’s tax rates for the rich are exorbitant, and millionaires are fleeing the State. Root suggests millionaire Kim Kardashian leave California for Nevada, since the Silver State won’t take her money.
“America’s always been a land of boom and bust. It’s just part of the natural business cycle,” says Wayne Allyn Root. “But Obama and his socialist cabal have channeled Hoover and FDR, who turned an ordinary bust into the Great Depression.” Root ponders whether Obama understands what he’s doing and asks: “Does it matter?”

Wayne Allen Root examines President Barack Obama’s 2013 budget and finds $1.5 trillion in new taxes. Root then sets out to prove that Obama is committing “tax fraud” by claiming that taxes are too low. In reality, they are too darn high. That is Obama’s agenda: to tax us until it hurts, leaving us with fewer dollars to fund conservative or capitalist causes.
President Barack Obama’s socialist lackeys lie about capital gains taxes. Last month, liberal New York Times columnist and Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman wrote that capital gains rates are just for the very rich. In fact, the low capital gains rates apply to and benefit every American. Lower capital gains rates are what allow lower-class and middle-class Americans to achieve the American dream.
Wayne Allyn Root assumes the role of President Barack Obama and presents the State of the Union address Obama would have given if he were able to tell the truth about the way things really are. Obama would have admitted that things are desperate and that he doesn’t care. The President also would have fessed up to all the things he’s doing to hurt our country.
Barack Obama was a community activist. He had never invested in, managed or started a business, much less served as CEO. He had no relevant experience to operate as CEO of the world’s greatest and largest economy. But we gave him the job anyway, and he failed. Wayne Allyn Root asks: Why are we surprised?
