An Important Political Message
From Peter Schiff
As you may know, I am seriously considering seeking the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in Connecticut, and Iíve launched www.SchiffForSenate.com to help me gauge support for my candidacy.
As one of the few economists with a record of successfully forecasting the recession, I can say with certainty that unless we return to true free-market principles, our economy will not rebound. Our families will continue to suffer. Unemployment and inflation will continue to rise. Our debt and deficits will continue to grow.
It is time to change course. Unfortunately, Congress and the President are continuing down the reckless path of more spending, more government intervention and more restrictions on free enterprise and individual liberty. Socialism has never worked anywhere, and it wonít work here. Washington must have the courage to stand by our founding principles in this time of crisis. Our politicians do not understand the stakes Ė which is why I am considering a run for the U.S. Senate.
But I am a practical man. I know that the political deck is stacked against me, and that wild card candidates almost never win. But I do have an ace up my sleeve, and that is like-minded people across the country who share my ideals. If I canít translate that support into campaign cash, then I have no hope of defeating an entrenched political machine.
Polls suggest that the race is winnable and I am ready to make the personal and financial sacrifice necessary to run. But I canít win this race alone. If the support is there, I will answer the call. However, if the public sentiment for my campaign is not there, and I decide not to run, I will return the unspent contributions. The decision now rests with you. So make your voice heard by contributing and signing-up at www.SchiffForSenate.com.
Free-market conservatives have an opportunity in 2010. With your help and support, I believe this will be our generationís chance to make a difference for ourselves and our children. Join me at www.SchiffForSenate.com.
Itís time we made ourselves heard.
