Peter Schiff: How He Would Fix America

Apparently there is a movement to get doomsayer investor/libertarian Peter Schiff to run for the U.S.. Senate in Connecticut. And a website has gone up to draft him. Here is the Schiff agenda as the website outlines it:

1. Increase savings and production. People need to start saving and paying down credit card debt, and the US needs to become a net producer and manufacturer of goods once again.

2. Vote no on all bailouts. Instead, the government should begin eradicating grotesque budget deficits and national debt by reigning in profligate spending.

3. Allow the recession to run its course and rebuild quickly from a fresh start. “Let it collapse today so it can prosper tomorrow.” To use a crude analogy, wildfires are devastating in the short term, but they are extremely beneficial in the long run for the entire ecology. Currently, the trillions of dollars of new government spending is akin to pouring gasoline on the fire. It will only serve to exacerbate the problem and delay meaningful recovery.

4. Let the free market operate without inefficient, ineffective, and cumbersome government involvement. The government should enforce the integrity of free markets, not manipulate them.

5. Drastically cut federal spending. It’s time to quit over spending and over borrowing and start living within our means.

6. Cut corporate and personal income taxes to spur savings, job growth, and real industrial production.

7. Minimize corporate regulation. If you allow the free market to operate, businesses and banks which accrue massive debt will fail. More efficient and fiscally responsible banks and institutions will prevail and restore prosperity to the economy.

8. Restore the value of the US dollar. Since 2002, the US dollar has been devalued by nearly 30%. Put a stop to the Federal Reserve setting artificial interest rates and printing trillions of dollars out of thin air. Instead, get the Fed out of the markets and bring back balanced budgets, low taxes, and robust production.

He'll never get elected.

How can he run a respectful Senatorial campaign with all that common sense and factual shit he's running on?
What?, No racist Rev. behind him? No underhande campaign contributions? No Terrorist teachers to lean on for advice? No chance in Hell of getting elected.

I'd vote for him though.
Schiff for Senate.

I have to agree with a quote from former Treasury Secretary William E. Simon: "Bad politicians are sent to Washington by good people who don't vote."

i cant see how its feasible to cut consumer spending and increase production. Who the hell will buy whats being produced if the money is being saved instead of spent?


That bothers me as part of his "plan"

It is simple, even when you are trying to save, you have to buy certain items. Instead of buying those items that are imported, buy them from someone that has produced them here in our country. Result? the consumer has not spent any more money, and production has increased.
