A Peter Schiff Christmas

Just in case you are brimming with good tidings and bubbling over with holiday cheer, Peter Schiff is here to offer a dour double dose of reality.

Just because he was right in 2006-07 about the financial crash, and he was right in 2008 about the collapsing dollar and rising gold, it doesn't necessarily mean he will be right in 2009. Does it?

Peter, I think your analysis is clear, cogent and correct. I even sent you a contribution for your Senate campaign. I'd love to see you be a libertarian voice in the Senate much like Ron Paul is the libertarian conscience of the House...


If you want to get elected Senator from Connecticut you are going to have to come across as something other than a humorless prophet of doom. You need to find a way to temper your message with at least a hint of optimism and - dare I say it? - "Hope". As an example - Ron Paul's media friendly phrase - "Freedom is popular." Just saying...

You can't get elected if all your supporters are suicidal.

Divided and Balanced.™
Now that is fair.
