Defeat Obama: Libertarian Star Wayne Allyn Root Switch to GOP
Fri, 09/07/2012 - 5:56am
Wayne Allyn Root, 2008 Libertarian Party’s Vice Presidential nominee, announced he is leaving the LP and joining the Republicans.
He wants Romney/Ryan to defeat Obama/Biden and will vote for Romney.
As a Republican he plans to help “elect good people and change the direction of this country outside of a third party.”
“I don’t deny that Romney and Ryan aren’t libertarians, but Romney is a pro-business capitalist and Obama is a Marxist-socialist. The economy has been trashed. This is about my kids’ future, it’s about my businesses,” said Root. “There is no hope for America if Obama is re-elected.”
Root has not relinquished his Libertarian ideals.
Rather, he sees that the best path to achieving any of what he wants is to elect Republicans in the vein of Rand Paul and Marco Rubio.
And the most important thing in the immediate future is to defeat Obama.
This gives me hope.
