Peter Schiff running for Senate
From Peter:

Based upon the unbelievable support that I have receieved [sic] from 10,000 supporters like you, I have decided to throw my hat into the ring to challenge Chris Dodd for the honor of representing the state of Connecticut in the United States Senate.

Peter isn’t a perfect candidate, but at least he’d fight for more sustainable fiscal and monetary policies. Chris Dodd, by the way, is co-sponsoring the extension/expansion of the disastrous housing tax credit.

Peter’s website is here.

But what is his platform? Those of us who are familiar with Peter’s TV appearances know what he stands for on economic issues, but what about the folks who haven’t seen him on TV? And what about other issues like national defense, abortion, gay rights, gun control, etc.?

Another question: Is Schiff cultivating Ron Paul and his network? Paul has a remarkably large and passionate following. They’d be natural supporters of Schiff’s likely platform and could be convinced to transplant their campaign machine to CT.

This is certainly an uphill battle, but if Schiff gets plugged in with Paul, he might have a fighting chance.


This guy's the real deal, I hope he wins.

Schiff advised Ron Paul so I assume he would/is cultivating the Campaign for Liberty.

I like Peter alot, one of the few that talks common sense.

Something tells me this site isnt going to be full of his supporters. Personally, I like him a lot, and I actually have some money invested with Euro Pacific.

Schiff is a great economist.

Obviously the jury's still out on other issues, but he's brilliant with economic policy ideas.

That and he'd be replacing Dodd. Win/Win

Is Schiff running for the GOP nomination? That makes, what, five candidates now?

If you're unfamiliar with Schiff, watch a few of the videos below and tell me this guy doesn't get it....

I've been listening for Schiff for about 3 years now and supported his exploratory committee. I am glad to see him in the race.

He would bring a voice of fiscal sanity and individual freedom to the Senate.

Schiff is great. I don't know what his views are on guns but I imagine they're positive.

He is way too focused, financially, on gold, but otherwise, why not? It's not like we have much else at the plate.

Has anyone ever considered Gartman as a candidate? I don't think he would ever want to bother but why not throw that name out there.

Well, he has suggested that people buy guns in his books and on his radio show. And he has a very pro-freedom mindset. So I would expect him to be very pro RKBA
