  • Schiff for Senate...

    http://www.schiffforsenate.com/


    Friends,
    As you know, I have been seriously considering running for U.S. Senate against Chris Dodd.
    Everywhere you turn there is evidence of just how bad our economy is getting. Growing unemployment, families that are struggling to put food on the table, and retirees that are having to make the choice between doing without or joining the millions of others that are looking for a job. Unfortunately, many of our economic woes have been created by government intervention and politicians who believe themselves to be economic “experts.”
    I believe that my experience and qualifications would make me well-suited to serve Connecticut, especially during a time when Washington needs fewer career politicians and more people with real-world financial experience that can be a voice of reason and help prevent the continued intrusion of government into our lives, jobs, and pocketbooks.
    I urge you to sign up below to be the first to know about my decision, because together we can take back Washington.
    Best regards,
    Peter

    Perhaps Schiff has realized the easiest way to make the most money is to be in the upper house of your government, plus no or few taxes if one is really slick.

    Am yet to see an article, may have missed it, that compares what US politicians rip off compared to what the British MP's were so far caught ripping off. Surely Brits can't come close to comparing with American political ingenuity, that is my guess.

      Re: Schiff for Senate...

      Dear xxxxxx,

      I just wanted to let you know that I am now able to take online donations on my website www.schiffforsenate.com.

      My decision to run is largely dependent on the level of early support and contributions I receive from people like you. I have commissioned polling that shows this to be a winnable race and I am ready to make the personal and financial sacrifice to run, but now it's up to the people to show their support because no candidate can win this race alone. Over the next several weeks we will be taking contributions at my website www.schiffforsenate.com, and weighing the public support for my candidacy. If the support is there, I will answer the call. However, if the public sentiment for my run is not there, I will return the contributions.

      Free-market conservatives have an opportunity in 2010. With your help and support, I believe this will be our generation's chance to make a difference for ourselves and our children. Join me. Show your support for free market principles by making a contribution on my website www.schiffforsenate.com.

      It's time we made ourselves heard.

      Best regards,
      Peter


      In one of his recent vlogs he said he needs around $20 million to be successful! :eek:

        Friends,

        As you know, I have been seriously considering running for U.S. Senate against Chris Dodd.

        Everywhere you turn there is evidence of just how bad our economy is getting. Growing unemployment, families that are struggling to put food on the table, and retirees that are having to make the choice between doing without or joining the millions of others that are looking for a job. I know this sounds just like President Obama's pitch in 2008, but bear with me.

        Many of our economic woes have been created by government intervention and politicians who believe themselves to be economic “experts,” rather than self-promoting, ego-centric, media whores with a degree in economics such as myself.

        I believe that my experience and qualifications as a narcissistic attention seeker who is too busy sucking up to the media and making youtube videos to manage his clients' investments so they do not lose money makes me well-suited to serve Connecticut.

        This is especially true during a time when Washington needs fewer career politicians and more people with real-world experience in business. I have run a brokerage that loses my clients' money. I relentlessly exploit naive libertarians with a simplistic line of free market patter. All to make money for me, Peter Schiff. That's me. But not for anyone else.

        Yes, I have made a lot of money this way, but public office will allow me to use my personality to keep on sucking money from others but on much larger scale.

        I urge you to sign up below to be the first to know about my decision, because with your help I, Peter Schiff, can milk a political career for years to come.

        Best regards,

        Peter

          The least suitable politician is one who wants to be one.

            I'll take Schiff in the Senate over all the other clueless bozos (Ron Paul being the exception) in there. We need all the Austrian economists we can get.

              not me. austrian school economists are ideologues & dreamers. i've had enough of those. i'll vote for anyone who's run a business... made payroll... made business decisions and tough tradeoffs. like janet tavakoli. but she'd never run.

                Ok, let's get practical. Who do you think he'd be running against? Would you pick the likely run-of-the-mill same-as-all-the-other politicians or Schiff?

                        Dodd's my senator and I have voted against him the last 4 elections.

                        Dodd's not real popular around Ct these days. I would say Schiff has a good shot at getting elected.

                        Me, I would be happy just to get rid of Dodd, I do not care who wins as long as he is out.

                          no question, schiff's better than dodd.

                          so is a rat, a monkey, a turtle... or a carrot.

                            Not sure if you know this, but Euro Pacific Capital is a business. Not only that, but the piece you linked is from January 2009. If someone were to have invested with EPC, I'm fairly certain their return would be higher than anyone who invested with a run-of-the-mill investment firm.

                            Of course Schiff is a narcissist, but name a politician who isn't!

                              As everyone with over an hour browsing time on iTulip knows, government creates nothing. I don't think even the more socialist leaning folks here have tried to support that idea. It can regulate and direct but create?...sorry, not even woe.

                              Since I'm an entrepreneur, a business owner with a bottom line and a payroll to meet, I find little difference between either of them and I'd prefer the buffoonery of Dowd to the stupidity of Schiff. Schiff is apparently saying that government shouldn't intervene but any woes we've had have come mostly from a lackluster government afraid to intervene. At least Dowd is just trying to get along. That's all I expect from politicians.

                              I've said before that business people are in it for the kill. We would not take the risks we take without the need to take down our opponents. When government gets in our way we find ways around it. When they support our goals we're still looking for an angle, a way to game the playground.

                              The job of government is to set well thought out guidelines that match the will of the populace and create regulations that are well understood. They don't do that. The Schiffs of the world want to pretend that we need them to help us create business, we don't. I find Schiff worse than useless.
