Peter Schiff Announces Senate Run


#1

#2

Say what you want about his views on investing (pushing gold, etc.), but I’d vote for this guy in a heartbeat.


#3

He chooses gold because it is a sure bet.


#4

Great news. I hope he wins, he’s exactly the kind of “voice of reason” our dipshit Congress has needed for a long time.

Do you think 1 member of the senate will be enough? I mean, he can spout all the common sense he wants, but that doesn’t mean anyone will listen.

I guess it’s a start, at least.


#6

Not like much will come out of him being a senator. It’s not going to change the direction this country is moving.

True, but it does set a certain example for others out there who are like minded and so inclined. I wish him the best.


#8

If he win in CT it will show the rest of the country that people can rally behind him for REAL change this country needs.

Hopefully his example can get other like-minded people and voters to go out and make a difference in their respective states.

Rand Paul, Ron Paul’s son, is also running for U.S. senator in the state of Kentucky. I realize two still won’t have much pull, but it’s a start.


#10

I just want him to fuck up Chris Dodd.


#11

Peter Schiff on FBN. I will try and find the video on youtube to keep it permanent.

Peter Schiff is true Patriot.

I don’t know Schiff anymore than most of you do; but I will say this:

ANYTIME someone takes on an established Senator from EITHER side of the isle, they better:

  1. Be relatively “clean”.

  2. Be straight up and honest

  3. Be ready to debate and support their stands/have alternative answers (more than “let it burn/let the free-market figure it out”) AND

  4. Put some Titanium Armour around their balls.

When an established Senator is threatened, the full-force of the opposing party will be unleashed.

Again…I wish Schiff luck…and his first order of business had best be clearing out any “skeletons” he may have.

And here I thought it took the opposite of the above to be a Politician.


#15

Peter Schiff on Foreign policy.

But really that is all that needs to be done. The government has had its day with tinkering with the markets. I think we know the current state is the best they can achieve.

Time to undo the damage.
