Wayne Allyn Root was the 2008 VP candidate for the Libertarian Party; I did not realize what he was doing now until I happened to see his name yesterday.  He has this website and here’s an awesome posting on the Wisconsin recall election:

Unions will lose big and GOP Governor Scott Walker will win big this Tuesday in Wisconsin. Here’s why.

Government employee unions are a real threat to national security, far worse than the unproven fraud called global warming. Government employee pensions threaten our children’s future. They will destroy the American Dream and wipe away our quality of life. America is doomed to follow Europe off the cliff, if we don’t dramatically reform public pensions…today.

I like this guy!  Is he running for something?  Root cites this letter in the Las Vegas Review-Journal from a union supporter who says that the non-union people ought to stop whining, join a union and get some loot for themselves! (I don’t cite the Review-Journal due to their appalling involvement in the Righthaven scam, read it in Root’s article.  Root’s analysis is sound:

The cold, hard truth is that America is bankrupt, broke, and insolvent. Just like Greece, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Ireland, Belgium, France…and soon add UK to the list. Europe is facing an economic Armageddon that will go down in history as “the Big One.” Why? Because they have too many government employees, let them retire too early, give them bloated pensions for more years than the employee actually worked, and of course they all get free healthcare for life. Unions killed the EU. It’s all over for them. The question is can America still be saved?

In Las Vegas as firefighters reach retirement they are making just under $200,000 per year. In Orange County, California lifeguards are making over $200,000. Bart employees in San Francisco average over $100,000. Education administrators throughout the state of California are retiring on over $200,000 per year. In NY the Port Authority cops average $100,000. Toll takers are retiring on six figure pensions. In Illinois, there are dozens of retired government employees and union bosses sucking $400,000 per year from taxpayers. In Wisconsin the bus drivers are making $100,000. It’s happening all over the country: “Government Gone Wild.”

Root is right.   Here is his conclusion:

Are you angry yet? When clowns like the Vegas teacher, who wrote that letter to the editor, start telling us that money grows on trees and pigs fly, you’d better get mad…very mad…and let them know your hard earned taxpayer dollars did not grow on trees…and that it doesn’t ever end well for pigs.

Alas, not enough people got angry enough to vote for Ron Paul.  But the liberty movement did not and will not go away.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
