2008 Libertarian Party Vice-Presidential candidate, Author of "The Conscience of a Libertarian," and prospective 2012 Libertarian Presidential candidate Wayne Allyn Root predicted a big Scott Brown victory. Root makes his living as a Sports oddsmaker in Las Vegas. He likened a Brown win to a revolutionary "shot heard round the World."
Excerpt from Root Press Release, Jan. 18:
But here’s my most important prediction of all- Obama and the Democrats are about to be swept out of office in the biggest Tea Party revolt since 1776. As a matter of fact, my gut instinct tells me Massachusetts Republican U.S. Senate candidate Scott Brown will pull one of the most shocking political upsets in history on Tuesday. Mark it down…whether Brown wins, or simply comes close…the Tea Party political revolution began in Massachusetts just like the first one in 1776.Note - Root also acknowledged and expressed his support for the efforts of LP Senate candidate Joe Kennedy.
I believe that a Scott Brown victory will be a huge victory for Tea Parties and be the ultimate “canary in the coal mine.” Brown’s victory will destroy the 60 vote margin needed to pass universal healthcare in the U.S. Senate.
