Libertarian Root Leads ‘Grass Roots’ Effort to Fire Every Incumbent Politician in U.S. Congress.
Root Vows to INCREASE Unemployment by 435- the Entire U.S. Congress!
A 21st Century ‘Shot Heard Round the World.’
Rasmussen Reports 57% of Voters Would Replace Entire U.S. Congress; 42% Say Citizens Randomly Selected from Phone Book Better Than Current U.S. Congress.
By Wayne Allyn Root, Author
The Conscience of a Libertarian: Empowering the Citizen Revolution with God, Guns, Gambling & Tax Cuts
Wayne Allyn Root defines the term “grass roots” (excuse the pun). Root is a citizen politician in the mode of the Founding Fathers. And Root believes that Founding Fathers like Washington, Jefferson, Madison and Adams would be proud of V.E.T.O. – a movement to defeat every incumbent member of the United States Congress in 2010 (and beyond).
Root is the author of a new book, “The Conscience of a Libertarian: Empowering the Citizen Revolution with God, Guns, Gambling & Tax Cuts!” But the citizen revolution that Root wants to start is a peaceful revolution. Root says, “We can create our own 21st century version of 1776- without a shot ever being fired. We can win our revolution with a vote. It's time to throw the bums out- everyone single of them. We got into this mess because we elected selfish career politicians who craved power…instead of selfless citizen legislators like the Founding Fathers. Our nation is floundering, our economy is buckling- it was ‘politics as usual’ that got us to the breaking point. The problem isn’t Republican or Democrat- it’s the career politicians of both parties that got us into this mess. We can only undo it by throwing all of them out. “This is our generation's chance to fire the shot heard round the world. To fire a shot right at the center of the D.C. culture of corruption. To say business as usual is over!”
Root wants every American voter to simply pledge to VETO (vote against) every incumbent politician in the United States of America in 2010. “I'm the only politician in America who wants to INCREASE unemployment- by at least 435 members of Congress (and a few Senators too). Can you imagine the headlines across the globe the morning after election day? ALL 435 MEMBERS OF U.S. CONGRESS HEAR: YOU'RE FIRED!”
Is this just a fantasy? Can it be done? Japan just did it. The Japanese people voted out the ruling political party after 50 consecutive years of power- a seismic shock wave to the political establishment. Here in America, polls show voters are angry and ready to do the same. Rasmussen Reports just announced the results of their latest polling about Congress. Rasmussen found that 57% of voters nationwide would vote to replace the entire U.S. Congress. But a remarkable 70% of independents would agree to throw out the entire Congress. 59% believe Congress is overpaid. 74% trust their own judgment on the healthcare issue over Congress. 75% think members of Congress are more interested in themselves and their career than in helping people. And here’s perhaps the most powerful finding of all by Rasmussen Reports: 42% of U.S. voters believe a random group of citizens chosen from the phone book would do a better job than the current Congress. The Citizen Revolution that Wayne Root wrote about in his new book has arrived.
Root says, “V.E.T.O. is the only way to send a powerful and forceful message to the D.C. political establishment that as Truman said ‘the buck stops here.’ Leaving the 'Socialist-in-Chief' Obama and his cabal of Reid, Pelosi, Dodd, and Frank in power is certainly not the answer (unless we want to trample the Constitution and destroy capitalism). But putting career Republican politicians in control of Congress is not the answer either- they’ve already proven they will abuse their power. The answer is a fresh start. We need Citizen Legislators to replace career politicians. We need people who are actually reluctant to serve. People who aren’t going to Washington D.C. to seize power, but to answer to a higher calling- to serve and save our country.
We need an army of Jimmy Stewart’s (Mr. Smith Goes to Washington). We need an army of Citizen Legislators who understand what “we the people” means. An army of Citizen Legislators who want to make their own office less powerful and hand the power back to the people- just as the Constitution intended. We can only send that powerful message by Voting Everyone of Them Out of office in 2010 (VETO).
Republican, Democrat, who cares? Send them all packing. This is the wakeup call the political establishment needs to hear. V.E.T.O. will put the fear of God…and an angry mob…into every politician in America. But the key is that we (the American voters) have to all agree to throw out everyone of them- even our own personal favorites. I know there are a few good ones in the bunch. But to send the message, we have to start by ripping up the entire U.S. Congress and starting over with a whole new class (no pun intended). The message is 'VETO 435 or bust.'
Then we'll see what the new group can do. We'll hold their feet to the fire. If they fail like the Democrats and Republicans before them, we'll throw them all out again. We’ll V.E.T.O. the U.S. Congress again in 2012.
That's only the start. While we’re at it, I suggest voting out every incumbent politician in America- at all levels. All of them should get the message: YOU'RE FIRED!” We the people are taking back control of our country.”
