Millionaire Republican” Author Predicted GOP Would Lose Congress a Month Ago - Now Predicts Senate is in Doubt Too

Root: It Has More to do With Hypocrisy Than Congressman Foley

Wayne Allyn Root, author of the Amazon #1 best-selling book "Millionaire Republican" predicted a month ago at that the GOP would lose control of Congress. Now he believes control of the Senate is also shifting to Democrats. But Root is the only pundit that does not blame the Foley page scandal. Root says, "That was just the straw that broke the camel's back. The Foley scandal merely showcased the hypocrisy of the GOP. The party I've identified with almost since my birth has been taken over by extremists looking to control every aspect of the lives of Americans. I predicted the GOP would lose their majority over a year ago when Tom DeLay and Bill Frist tried to turn Terri Schivao's death into a political (and government) issue.

"The GOP won control of all branches of government by being the party of limited government, smaller bureaucracy, lower spending, lower taxes, and individual freedom. Instead we have let extreme religious hypocrites turn us into the party of big government - trying to decide whether individuals have a right to die (trying to prevent Terri Schiavo's own husband from making personal decisions), live our lives free from disease (limiting funding for stem cell research), and make personal decisions in our own home (banning online gaming).

"Government and politicians are taking over our lives - from both the right and the left. Individual rights and freedoms are being trampled. Personal responsibility is now a thing of the past; politicians want the government to make all of our personal decisions. It's the "Nanny State" run amok. I believe the Foley scandal just allowed Americans to see the hypocrisy of GOP leaders, and the folly of allowing politicians or government bureaucrats to decide what is right or wrong, moral or immoral.

"While Congressman Foley's fellow GOP politicians were trying to take more of our rights and freedoms away by banning online gaming - declaring they have moral authority to decide what Americans can enjoy in the privacy of their own home, or on their own computer, with their own money - Foley was sending sexual messages to underage boys."

Author Root believes the Foley scandal merely triggered the light bulb going off for the American people. They finally asked the question: Do we want government bureaucrats and politicians deciding our fate, making our decisions, defining what is moral or not, banning our choices of entertainment, deciding what we can or cannot do on our own computers, limiting our rights and freedoms? The answer is a resounding "NO!" The result is a Republican meltdown.

Root, a lifelong Republican, believes a resounding defeat in Congress will be good for the GOP. "Perhaps we can finally take back the party from extremists and religious zealots who are chasing away moderates, independents, and mainstream common-sense American voters. I look forward to a Republican loss so we can finally clean house and return to our Libertarian Republican roots. We are the party of Ronald Reagan and Barry Goldwater - not Tom DeLay and Bill Frist."

Wayne joins me Friday morning.
