The Conscience of a Libertarian: Empowering the Citizen Revolution with God, Guns, Gold and Tax Cuts (0470918187) cover image
Libertarian-conservative solutions to the political, social, economic and tax issues facing the United States from a 2012 Third Party Presidential contender, as well as one of America's leading Tea Party political leaders

In today's uncertain economy, people are growing more and more concerned about their financial future, and looking for common sense, limited government solutions. In The Conscience of a Libertarian: Empowering the Citizen Revolution with God, Guns, Gold & Tax Cuts, 2008 Libertarian Party Vice Presidential nominee Wayne Allyn Root presents a passionate case for smaller government; dramatically reduced spending and taxes; States' Rights; free markets; adherence to the Constitution; an end to the Fed; a ban of bailouts, stimulus, earmarks, pork and corporate welfare; economic and personal freedom; and a return of power to the people, just as the Founding Fathers intended. The book

  • Explains why Obama's big government solutions are leading to a Great Depression II and a coming Citizen Revolution
  • Proposes a one year "Income Tax Vacation," a permanent end to capital gains taxes, and detailed spending freezes and cuts across all levels of government
  • Proposes dramatic education reform centered on school choice, home-schooling, charter schools, teacher accountability, and parental freedom
  • Proposes unique reforms in the areas of health care, energy and the public sector (government employee unions)

The Conscience of a Libertarian reveals how Americans can take back their country from big government, big unions, big corporations, corrupt politicians, bureaucrats, lawyers and lobbyists.
