Dawn J. Bennett, host of Financial Myth Busting with Dawn J. Bennett, recently interviewed Wayne Allyn Root, a politician and author. Root is the author or The Power of Relentlessness: 7 Secrets to Achieving Mega-Success, Financial Freedom, and The Life of Your Dreams. He was also the vice presidential candidate for the Libertarian Party in 2008. Since then, he has appeared on regularly Fox News and on hundreds of national and local radio shows, and recently wrote an article titled, “It’s Trump or The End of America.” His article was the primary topic of discussion in his interview with Bennett.
In his article “It’s Trump or The End of America,” Root says when he was young he was taught by his patriotic parents that certain specific things make America great. They are: faith in God, prayer, love of country, family, and belief in American exceptionalism, capitalism, Judeo-Christian values, Constitution, limited government, personal responsibility, economic freedom, the military and police. In his conversation with Bennett, Root says all of these things are under attack.
“Name them one by one. They’re all under horrible, horrific attack the last 8 years and Hillary has said she wants to be the third term of Obama so they’ll continue to be under attack, horrific attack for the next for years and they won’t survive, I promise you,” he said. “We won’t survive. That’s why I say it’s Trump of it’s the end of America.”
This makes the stakes for the election so high. According to Root, what happened in California is what liberals are trying to accomplish in the rest of the country. California, which used to be a very conservative state, had opened its borders and was flooded with tons of illegal foreigners who believe in socialism. These foreigners came from socialist welfare states and came to California expecting the cradle to grave welfare checks and soon the entire stated was filled with foreigners who didn’t have any of those important American values, explained Root.
“So they ruined the voting patterns of California so to this day no Republican can ever again be elected on a statewide basis. Never again in the history of California, you’ll never see a Republican on the statewide basis unless they change their stripes and they say, ‘I’m a Republican,’ but they really are extremely liberal,” said Root.
He continued, “That’s what they’re trying to do to America, Dawn, and if Hillary is elected you will never again see a Republican president in our lifetime which means forever.”
Root noted that in an interview with Barack Obama, Obama was asked, ‘If you’re illegal and you vote can they come to your home and take you away and send you back to Mexico?’ Obama said, ‘No, there’s no repercussions if you’re illegal and you vote so I encourage you to go vote.’ According to Root, this is how we’ve lost our country, by allowing illegals to vote. And, no one is allowed to ask for your ID when you vote, yet you can’t get ObamaCare or welfare without a photo ID issued by the U.S. government.
“Every one of them has a photo ID and they’re demanding we don’t use it because that’s how they’re stealing elections and that’s how they’re taking the country away from us,” Root said.
Root noted that while he doesn’t support illegal immigration, he is in favor of legal immigration. Illegal immigrants break into the country illegally and then expect us to pay for it, he said.
“I support letting in all the people who want to come here who have the right pedigree, hopefully many of whom are educated, who agree the minute they get here they’ll learn English, who should never be allowed to ever again vote in anything but English, who come here with no goal of getting welfare or food stamps,” Root said.
