Every patriotic American, and especially every legitimate journalist, has the responsibility to question the background, character, and policies of the person who is the CEO of the world’s most powerful economy…the Commander of the world’s most powerful military…and the person with his finger on the nuclear button.

Perhaps there is a connection to the media’s refusal to ask these questions of our current president and the problems we’re experiencing: an economy in decline…no jobs…our own government now violating our rights at every turn…using the IRS to intimidate and punish us…the EPA to bankrupt the energy industry…the NSA to spy on us…the Fed to bury our children in debt…and perhaps soon using drones to kill us, without a trial, or even hearing the charges.

Yet, if one American actually dares to ask questions about our President…suddenly all hell breaks loose.

I am that one courageous American. I have many questions about President Obama’s background, actions and policies. I’m willing to stand up in public and question and criticize. The result: first came vicious IRS attacks. Then after I beat them again and again, next came the national media attack.

This past week MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow tried to defame and slander me in a bizarre, rambling 15 minute diatribe. She even gave me a name, “birther.” It sounds similar to “murderer,” except it only means I dared ask questions about Obama. Funny enough none of those questions have ever involved his birth or birth certificate. Never. Not once. But hysterical defenders of Obama never let a fact get in the way of a good slander.

Rather than attacking a patriotic American, shouldn’t journalists like Rachel Maddow be asking questions of the President? Do the answers to the questions I asked scare her that much? Am I getting that close to the truth? Do I pose that much of a threat?

Saul Alinsky is one of Obama’s heroes and mentors. His book “Rules for Radicals,” is Obama’s bible, even though Alinsky’s masterpiece is dedicated to Lucifer, the Devil. Funny, I’ve never heard the media mention that little fact.

Alinsky’s philosophy is to destroy and discredit any conservative who dares to question you by demonizing him. The strategy is to call him vile names and tell lies, because the end justifies the means. Humiliate and intimidate them so badly, they will hide under the covers, never to be seen again. In this case, Maddow’s goal is not only to destroy Wayne Allyn Root, but also to warn other conservatives that if they dare question the President, they too will get the same treatment. So stop asking questions!

My personal story is the achievement of the American Dream. The son of a blue collar butcher I graduated from Columbia University (class of ’83 with my classmate Barack Obama). Through discipline, sacrifice, personal responsibility, work ethic, enthusiasm for capitalism, and a relentless attitude, I became a successful entrepreneur. This has allowed me to give more time to my passion- politics. I became the Vice Presidential nominee of the Libertarian Party, a media personality on Fox News and conservative talk radio, and now the author of the national bestseller “The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide.” I am also the home-school dad of four beautiful children, including a daughter at Harvard and Oxford.

Because of all this success and my media microphone, Obama’s defenders are getting awful worried. I’m making a difference. And I’m obviously scaring powerful people on the left. In one rambling, raving diatribe on national TV, Rachel Maddow slimed me, slandered me, and reduced me to one curse word: “birther.” Even though I’ve never been a birther. Ever. Not once have I ever questioned any aspect of Obama’s birth or birth certificate.

Alinsky would be proud. This is how you destroy your political opposition, silence dissent, and socialize America. This is how big government takes over a once proud nation of individuals.

Rachel Maddow isn’t alone. In the past few weeks, since I’ve asked critical questions and made commonsense predictions about Obama’s true agenda, Obama’s IRS scandal, and the mysterious story of Obama’s years at Columbia University, I’ve come under withering attack from across the liberal media. Jon Stewart’s “Daily Show,” Mother Jones magazine, liberal bloggers, and now Rachel Maddow and MSNBC have made attacking Wayne Allyn Root a national pastime. The attacks intensified as “The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide” rose on the bestseller list. Coincidence?

Last month, even CNN host Piers Morgan tried to discredit me and bait me into a slugfest on CNN.  At least he had the class to do it to my face. Give Piers credit. Rachel Maddow on the other hand wouldn’t take the chance to debate me face to face. Rachel, why are you so afraid of the truth?

Maddow gave me so much airtime she might as well have named me “the most evil man in the world.” I’ve been in the TV and entertainment business my whole life and know no host dedicates 15 minutes of their national TV show to one outspoken critic of the President. Not unless they are worried. Not unless he’s hit a bullseye.

Maddow’s attack on me is certainly a show of desperation. I’m obviously getting too close to the truth. In the military they say, “You know you’ve reached the target when you start getting hit by flak.”

If I’m so unimportant, why is the liberal media so intent on destroying me? If my instincts about Obama’s scandals are so wrong, why are they so intent on discrediting me? If I’m just some kook, why would Rachel Maddow even pay attention to me? Why give me so much precious time on national TV?

Unless, I’m not so unimportant. Unless, I’ve stumbled onto the storyline that could destroy the Obama Presidency. Unless, they’re afraid far too many Americans are reading about Obama’s purposeful plan to overwhelm the system and destroy capitalism in “The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide.” Unless, they are worried my story about the IRS scandal has legs. Unless, my instinct about how Obama might have committed fraud to gain entrance to Columbia University is striking chords. Unless, Obama’s defenders are sweating and panicking.

Rachel, “Methinks thou protests too much.” Remember I’m from Las Vegas and play a mean game of poker. You’ve tipped your hand. You’re playing with a pair of 2’s, you know I’ve got 3 kings, and you and your liberal friends are obviously desperate to bluff me out of the game.

News flash. You failed.

You’ll be sad to know I played to full houses, standing room only, at both FreedomFest and the GOP Women’s Gala in Las Vegas this weekend. The GOP event had to turn guests away. And your slander helped raise thousands of dollars at this weekend’s GOP Women’s Gala. By the way, the highest bid of the event was for a private dinner at the home of Wayne Allyn Root. Sorry Rachel: YOU LOSE.

I draw three conclusions:

#1) There is a God.

#2) Saul Alinsky is rolling over in his grave.

#3) Thank you Rachel from the bottom of my Republican heart. You’re the gift that keeps on giving.
