"Root takes no prisoners, leaves no doubt how the disaster came to be; Root names-names but blames both Democrat and Republican administrations for over-spending, inflating the size and reach of government and creating a welfare state that is a form of slavery even as it continues to bleed taxpayers.
Root has solutions. To me, he's the only candidate who's articulate, powerful in presentation, and RIGHT. He presents his views with vigor and clarity on every occasion. He comes across great because he speaks truth from the heart, of America, to America, for America."
— Dr. John Hospers, First Libertarian United States Presidential Candidate; Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, University of Southern California
"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."
—-Judge Andrew P. Napolitano, Fox News Channel, Senior Judicial Analyst; Host of "Brian and the Judge" on FOX News Radio and "FreedomWatch" on FOXNews.com
"Wayne Allyn Root is a dynamic Libertarian patriot and freedom-fighter. He lives and breathes freedom and free markets. If you value your liberty, read this book. The Conscience of a Libertarian explains how government is the problem—not the solution—and calls for a dramatic reduction in government intervention. Root is a Citizen Politician whose passion and message can spearhead our Citizen Revolution."
—Manny Klausner, Co-Founding Editor of Reason magazine and Cofounder of the Reason Foundation
In today's turbulent economy, more and more people are growing concerned about their financial future and looking for answers that make sense. While the government attempts to "fix" the problems created by the credit crunch and subprime crisis, the fact is that in order to improve America's economic future, government intervention must be limited.
In The Conscience of a Libertarian, Libertarian Party vice presidential nominee and frontrunner for the 2012 Presidential nomination Wayne Allyn Root presents a passionate case for the dramatic overhaul of governmental programs and policies that are essential for the continued survival of the American Dream. Focusing on the need to shrink the size of government—including the elimination of the IRS—Root proposes the dramatic reduction of government spending, lowering entitlements, reducing bureaucracy, increasing market freedom, reducing the tax burden on all Americans, and an end to the nanny state among many other ideas.
Divided into four comprehensive parts—A Revolution Is Brewing, Let's Talk Money and Politics, Solutions for the Mess We Are In, and Protecting and Preserving Our Inalienable Civil Liberties—The Conscience of a Libertarian puts our current situation in perspective and reveals what it will take to overcome the enormous obstacles we face.
Throughout these pages, Root also shares his thoughts on what he believes the government should do to improve our situation—and bring money back to the American taxpayer—including: upgrade the education system on the state level; foster investment to provide workers with more capital; lower the income tax rate to empower Americans to save the money needed to invest in stocks, real estate, and business start-ups; encourage reasonable risk and entrepreneurship; and eliminate corporate welfare.
It's time for a new revolution, a Citizen Revolution led by a Citizen Politician. Just as our Founding Fathers intended, Root's goal is to give the power back to you, the citizens and taxpayers. Focusing in part on his home state of Nevada—which represents smaller government, has among the lowest tax rates in America, and continuously promotes personal and economic freedom—Root examines what happens when his principles are applied to state government, and reveals how the American Dream can survive and thrive during this current economic crisis.
I was interested in finding out how a Christian could rationalize his acceptance of some anti-Biblical libertarian precepts. Root did a fair job of this.Published 8 months ago by Gerald Benjamin Welsh

This is a book by a Tea-Party Republican. Root can not "decide to just rewrite the ideas of the Libertarian Party". Read morePublished on September 13, 2012 by zar
