“IMPORTANT NOTE FROM THE EDITOR: This website remains committed to supporting BOTH Mitt Romney as a Republican and Gary Johnson as a Libertarian for President.”



Libertarian Leader: Important thing now is make sure Obama is not elected

Wayne Allyn Root, the Libertarian Party's 2008 Vice-President candidate, Chairman of the Libertarian National Congressional Committee, and an At-Large Member of the Libertarian National Committee, said the following on a radio talk show on April 6, 2012:

“I think the important thing now is to make sure Obama is not elected. And that means in my mind, listen, I would love if a libertarian like Gary Johnson, the two term governor of New Mexico, would actually get elected president, but I think we all know that's not going to happen, so therefore it's got to be Romney.

“There's no choice. And then unfortunately, the good news is, Romney stops Obamacare I hope, and stops, you know, the incredible bankruptcy of America and the looting of taxpayers.”

Kudos for a man putting principle before politics, and country before party.

What he said was common sense, and he later came out boldly as quoted below.

“Before I introduce myself and tell you about the most important decision of my political life, let me first cut to the chase.

“If Obama is re-elected on November 6th, you haven’t seen anything yet. Because the first Obama term was just a small taste of things to come. Without ever having to answer to voters again, he will be free to be his REAL radical self. Without any need for restraint, Obama will throw caution to the wind, ignore Congress, and govern by Executive Order. He will be free to truly wreck this economy from sea to shining sea- just as Saul Alinsky, Cloward & Piven, Barack Obama Sr., Frank Marshall, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, and a host of other radical, Marxist, American-haters taught him...

“I was elected the Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee in 2008. The Bob Barr/Wayne Root Presidential ticket went on to garner the second highest vote total in Libertarian history. I was then elected Chairman of the Libertarian National Campaign Committee, and became the #1 vote-getter in the country for election to the Libertarian National Committee. Media across the country called me “Mr. Libertarian” in my 4000 media appearances since 2008.

“Today, after giving this many months of thought, I'm announcing the most important decision of my political career. I am stepping down from my roles in the Libertarian party, to endorse Mitt Romney as President of the United States...

“Why? I’m a Capitalist Evangelist. I’m proud to be a small businessman. I love starting and running businesses. The issues that are of life and death importance to this country are the economy, creating jobs, lowering spending, lowering the debt and deficit, reducing taxes, and saving capitalism. Because if the economy collapses, or your personal economy collapses, what difference does any other issue matter? We need to get our fiscal house in order first, before we can deal with all the other problems. Without an economy, without jobs, nothing else matters. That’s why electing Mitt Romney is so important.

“Under the Obama administration we have seen businessmen denigrated, demonized, punished, smothered by 60,000 new rules and regulations, threatened with massive new taxes, and attacked by the IRS. That’s why there are no jobs. That’s why, in my opinion, the economy is in freefall. That’s why America is facing economic collapse and disaster.

“This election is NOT about Libertarian versus non-Libertarian. This election is about capitalism versus big government progressivism and Big Brother socialism. Mitt Romney believes in the same things I do- keeping businesses free from government intrusion, allowing small business owners to keep more of their own money, and rewarding instead of punishing investors, innovators, and job creators. Mitt understands, as President Calvin Coolidge once said, “The business of America is business.” ...

“The sad reality is that this is our LAST STAND to save America. We will not survive four more years of Obama as CEO of this economy...

“As Clint Eastwood said, "We own this nation." It's time to take it back. Our businesses and jobs depend on it. The future of America and our children depends on it. Their quality of life is hanging in the balance. This is our last stand.

“Do I agree with Mitt and the GOP on every issue? Of course not. No one ever agrees 100% on everything. But I’m willing to put my differences aside- to set an example- in order to take back our country from the grips of socialism and the abyss of economic ruin. There is no other choice. Our back is to the wall, and Obama’s defeat is that important to the survival of our country, our economy, our freedoms, our children’s future, and ultimately, capitalism itself.

“It’s time for a coalition of Republicans, conservatives, Tea Party activists, Libertarians, Ron Paul supporters, small business owners, homeowners, investors, patriots, Christians, Jews, and Israel supporters to join together and support Mitt Romney now...

“I will do everything in my power to help elect Mitt Romney as the next President of the United States.

I believe Mitt Romney is our Reagan.

“Romney schooled Obama... The whole nation saw it... Mitt debunked the lies that the media has allowed Obama to tell...

“Mitt looked presidential and stayed focused on distinct targeted messages.

“First, that he will cut taxes without adding to the deficit, and will never raise taxes on the middle class. Ever.

“Second, that what matters above all else now is jobs...

“Third, that Obama is the one hurting seniors by cutting over $700 billion from Medicare. Mitt made it clear he will protect Medicare and change nothing for current recipients. Obama is endangering it...

“Fourth, that Obama promised to cut the debt in half, but instead doubled it. Romney called it immoral to keep spending more than we take in. Did you see the look on Obama’s face? Did you see his body language? He looked like a defeated man...

“Fifth, Romney pointed out that ObamaCare will cost $2,500 more per family annually and that it will kill jobs. ObamaCare will make it less likely that small business will hire people. On Wednesday night Romney used something that befuddles Obama: FACTS. He pointed out that the CBO predicts 20 million Americans will lose their current insurance under ObamaCare...

“Then Romney went for the kill. He pointed out that Mr. Obama wasted his first two years on ObamaCare, something the majority of Americans didn’t even want, in the middle of an economic tragedy, when jobs should have been his priority. He squandered his two years when he should have been fighting for jobs for the American people.

“But the line of the night that completely emasculated Obama was, “Yes, Mr. President your spending does show your priorities. You spent $90 billion on green energy tax breaks. That’s like 50 years of tax breaks to oil companies. You gave $90 billion to companies like Solyndra. You could have hired 2 million teachers with that money.”

“Bullseye.

“Romney looked and sounded like a president. He showcased his CEO leadership skills. Obama was depressed, befuddled, stumbling, bumbling, and fumbling throughout the night. He wasn’t presidential, even though he IS the president. He was a man out of his league.

“In the end Jim Lehrer had the best line of the night when he tried to stop Obama from going over his allotted time. He said, “Mr. President, your time is up.”

“How prophetic.”


Sen. Rand Paul

Fox News host: “Sir, why do you think Silicon Valley is mad at the president?”

Sen Rand Paul: “Well what I think is, is that... they Frankly are being very unfair to Romney... the president will back down because I think the American people aren't that gullible to think that investors are somehow the enemy, that corporations are the enemy or rich people are the enemy... It's not a me against you... It's not this politics of envy and divisiveness... I don't think jealousy and envy are a great political devise for the president...

“All of the president's attacks are based on falsehoods... the American people aren't gullible enough to buy it...

“I do want someone who's been good at managing businesses that have been in failure, and trying to turn them around.

“Right now I'd consider our government to be a failed business, and so I think Governor Romney would be precisely the person I would want to turn around a failing business like our government.

“You know, we spend a hundred billion dollars a year that we can't even account for. Our agencies are throwing good money after bad. I think someone who has been a businessman, who has turned around businesses, would be precisely the one you would want to turn around your country.”

Official endorsement:

Fox News - Jun 7, 2012

“The American Dream is that any among us could become the next Thomas Edison, the next Henry Ford, the next Ronald Reagan.

“But to lead us forward, away from this looming debt crisis, it will take someone who believes in America's greatness. Who believes in and can articulate the American Dream. Someone who has created jobs. Someone who understands and appreciates what makes America great. Someone who will lead our party and our nation forward.

“I believe that someone is our nominee, Governor Mitt Romney.”


Ron Paul

Ron Paul has not endorsed Mitt Romney, but here are a couple of statements he has made:

“Presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) said on Sunday that opponent Mitt Romney has the best “management style” out of all of his remaining Republican contest rivals...

“ “I think he certainly would have a more acceptable management style when you consider what I have seen and experienced from the other two candidates. I don’t think they qualify there.” ” — Ron Paul to CNN's host Candy Crowley

“In an exclusive interview outside a Manchester polling place, Ron Paul lashed out at fellow Republicans for making unfair and ignorant attacks on Mitt Romney’s business record.

“ “I think they’re wrong. I think they’re totally misunderstanding the way the market works,” Paul told me. “They are either just demagoguing or they don’t have the vaguest idea how the market works.” ...

“In Paul’s view, Romney is right to say that he created jobs by restructuring companies.

“ “I think they’re way overboard on saying that he wants to fire people, he doesn’t care,” Paul said. “You save companies, you save jobs when you reorganize companies that are going to go bankrupt. And they don’t understand that.” ”
