. . .Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. My U.S. senator is perhaps the worst in the history of the U.S. Senate: Harry Reid. He’s certainly the worst senator of my lifetime: the past 53 years. Amazingly, Reid isn’t just my senator, he’s my neighbor. Reid and I live only a couple of blocks apart in Henderson, Nevada, inside beautiful Anthem Country Club.
Can you imagine? We should do a reality TV show together called “The Odd Couple.” Harry Reid, the enabler for the Marxist agenda of the worst president in U.S. history, lives only a stone’s throw from “the Capitalist Evangelist” and ultimate Tea Party warrior Wayne Allyn Root. What a pair of neighbors. One in a million.
From my second story deck, I’m looking at Reid’s home. I’m just a stone’s throw away. And there are times I’ve thought of throwing that stone. Just kidding. Besides, Reid is doing a good enough job of hurting himself. A while back, he fell while jogging. Just a few weeks ago, he hurt himself lifting weights. Reid’s so feeble, in such decline, I actually feel sorry for him. I wish him a wonderful retirement. It’s clearly time for golf, grandchildren and cruises to Mexico. But one thing is for sure: Reid cannot continue as one of the leaders of the U.S. Senate and one of the most important and powerful men in the free world.
This is getting embarrassing. Poor Reid has clearly reached well beyond his “past due” date as a U.S. Senator. If he were an airline pilot, he would have been forced to retire a decade ago — long before he started falling down and hurting himself. If he were a CEO, his board of directors would have forcedly retired him years ago. If he were a typical government employee, he’d have retired to a life of leisure at age 50. That was almost three decades ago.
So why is Reid allowed to stay in his U.S. Senate seat until the day he dies? Will he be allowed to serve in the Senate while he’s pushed to his seat in a wheelchair and spoon-fed by a nurse?
At what age is enough enough? Shouldn’t a world leader be held to the same standards as a pilot? That pilot has to retire at age 65 — even if he’s in perfect mental and physical shape. Why? It’s because after age 65, people start to fail. Bad things start to happen. You can’t let a pilot decide for himself when it’s time to go. For the good of society, that decision is made for the pilot at a specific age.
We can’t have elderly pilots flying planes with 200 or 300 souls on board when they suffer a stroke, seizure or heart attack or fall down and can’t get up. So why would we want a U.S. Senator, whose actions affect our economy, jobs, taxes and healthcare, still making important decisions, long after their “past due” date?
Is Reid capable of making competent decisions at this point? We know for a fact he has suffered strokes while in office. He fell down jogging and got a nasty black eye not long ago. Then, weeks ago, Reid had a far more serious episode. The claim is he was badly hurt while exercising.
He claims to have been using a band-based weight machine when the band snapped, hitting him in the face and knocking him unconscious with severe injuries. He had broken ribs, a severe concussion and terrible eye injuries that threatened the loss of his sight. From exercise?
I’m a fitness enthusiast. I understand exercise very well. It’s been the foundation of my life for 38 years. In all those years, I’ve never heard of someone getting a black eye from jogging. In all those years, I’ve also never heard of a serious injury from using an amateurish, cheap band weight machine.
To make matters worse (and stranger) Reid’s staff further disclosed his injury occurred in the bathroom of his home. His bathroom? Do you know anyone who lifts weights in the bathroom? The story is just too strange to believe. But either way, this is clearly not a man capable of doing the most important job in our country.
Here’s a man who did great damage to our economy and country as U.S. Senate majority leader. He was the chief enabler and water-carrier for the massive expansion of government, spending, taxes, regulation and debt under President Obama.
Reid enabled Obama to depress the private sector with the most regulations in history, killing millions of jobs, suffocating the middle class, destroying the greatest healthcare system in the world, making the coal industry extinct and blocking the Keystone Pipeline (thereby dramatically raising all of our electric bills), giving amnesty to illegal aliens and allowing Obama to violate the U.S. Constitution again and again.
Reid achieved all this while purposely preventing the U.S. Senate from voting on any bill that might help the economy, or undo the damage of Obama’s socialist nanny state policies.
Reid refused to allow bills to be voted on, for fear of hurting the re-election campaigns of his fellow Democratic senators. He even presided over “the nuclear option” that he swore he’d never allow to pass — for the first time in history, allowing bills and appointments to pass the Senate with merely a simple majority.
Term limits would have forced Reid out of the Senate before any of that could have happened. What a blessing that would have been for America and the U.S. economy.
Now add in Reid’s declining health and fading ability to competently take care of himself, let alone the country, and you have a clear recipe for disaster. Reid is indeed the poster child for term limits.
From now on, I’d suggest “The Harry Reid Rule.” All politicians should be limited to two terms: one term in office, and one term in prison.
I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. See you next week. God bless America.
