Why would anyone invest in failing companies which use unionized liberal supporting, Zero voting workforces?
You want to see who put Zero in office, look at the unions here in America
Fro, the looks of things, you did the right thing.
Ignore the trolls and press on.
Hey RB, Good job.
We don’t need cheaters. We need straight shooters who deal on the level and square their actions with their responsibilities toward their constituents.
Republican rinos and statists are no different than left wing statists.
The crusade against peter schiff is disgusting considering these are the same dolts and shills who would gladly accept a third term of george bush or accept any other massive govt rino.
Why is the left afraid of him?
Schiff is a moral leftist, he is a libertarian
pro-gay marriage, gay rights, anti-war
he is a democrats dream
“Peter Schiff admits on camera that he has ZERO money investigated in American corporations or industry.”
Excepting my own business, neither do I. I think Obama’s going to run us into the ground.
That said, the Stormfront deal is a no-starter.
I stand with Israel, and with that, I depart from Paulbots.
One thing I do know, I'm not going to get everything I want in any candidate, and if one shows up, they will be unelectable.
He don’t take Schiff from any Schifty character. LOL
The Tea Party should have no room for losertarians.
peter schiff is a RINO
he is a left wing libertarian who wants gays, prostitutes to be legal, drup legalization
he says Iraq is a quagmire, we were wrong to go into Afghanistan
he says we need to bomb Iran, though!
HE IS IDENTICAL to democrats on ALL moral issues
so, you call that Liberty??
thank God he lost, he is WORSE than any democrat.
Looks like you got him.
when I DIDNT fight back??
My mother always told me, if you can’t be moral in your work, your work is worthless.
TYou will read the full interview with the AP tomorrow
The elections enforcement commission called me back and said I was right and asked me to come down and sign the affadavit
that is why I posted both sections, look to the upper section, paragraph 14 I think, it spells it out! :)
so, I know I was right.
No illegal aliens aren’t good but I didn’t read that Peter Schiff had illegal aliens collecting signatures for him. However I don’t see any rational reason for not allowing volunteers whatever state they are from to collect signatures provided they are the signatures of CT citizens. Does CT law ban all involvement of outside organizations in electoral related efforts? I doubt it. This is just one of those stupid laws primarily designed to maintain power in the hands of the powerful. I’m not a big fan of irrational nitpicking type of laws. You have ever right to file a complaint but it is a very petty thing.
Better a Virginian than a Masshole. It is a different altitude, a big city is 60K and there ain’t to many of them. As an exiled Idahoan it is comfortable but takes getting used to.
Judging from the posts it seemed that you surrendered, more detail.
Schiff is personally pro choice, like the lady who won the GOP nomination. The difference is, I would actually believe Schiff when he says he wants to turn these matters over to the states.
That is an acceptable pro life position, coming from a libertarian. Coming from a politician who has shown no respect whatsoever for the Constitution, or federalism, its crap, however.
And, also, you are just helping the local GOP to retain control over the nomination process. They use a gazillion laws, breaks, and other obstacles to keep a tight lid on who even gets close to getting into power.
On top of that, you don’t know that he was hired by Schiff, or that he isn’t a legal resident, who perhaps moved to the state to support Schiff.
Clear, principled speakers who know their stuff like Schiff inspire people to make sacrifices.
I really don’t know why you are so excited about what you did. McMahon is polling even worse than Schiff against the Dem candidate....
Paid signature gatherers have to be local?
I got to ask Hillery, the World’s smartest woman, what the sense of such a stupid law is.
In the Dem Party’s case, why require paid signature gatherers to be local, just to collect signatures from non-residents, illegals, felons, the dead,peoples’ pet animals, and imaginary beings such as Mickey Mouse, etc?
Schiff is one of the leaders of the liberty movement, someone we badly need in office today. You can keep supporting right wing big government. Ill choose the candidate that is for liberty.
Mega dittos. I totally agree with you. I like Schiff very much and believe he would be an excellent senator because he has a great understanding of economics (Austrian). He's also very articulate and can convey complex economic issues in an easy to understand manner. Finally, he's a strong advocate of small government, individual rights, and supports adherence to the Constitution and the principals of the Founding Fathers.
I am not a resident of Connecticut, but I want Schiff to win the primary. We will need him given the economic train wreck that is upon us.
Race, C’mon. Shiff was gonna get clobbered anyway. He is certainly knowledgeable on economics - I’ve heard him speak - and could serve a useful function to pressure Linda from the right. Unfortunately, I’ll have to vote for her in the general, since I couldn’t ever vote for Dick the “War Hero” but this is just stirring up a controversy where letting nature take its course would have accomplished the same thing. Bad show, regardless of whether you’re right or wrong on the law — which is not so clear.
I read Schiff often on his economic/political articles.
He makes a whole lot of refreshing sense to me.
Me being a Conservative that is.
Doubt a Liberal would do other than detest him.
In a free society, "culture" is not a political issue. The culture just reflects the individual choices of all the people in the society. In a free society, if you don't like the culture you try to educate and convince people to share your values. You don't impose your choices with the power of government.
You can't both have a "culture" imposed by governemnt, and be a free people. Make your choice.
Morals aren’t defined by the law. Abortion is legal but is hardly moral. We have laws crafted to elevate certain races, ethnic groups, genders, and even sexual behaviors above others that fall outside the category which in a free society that is supposed to guarantee equal standing under the law clearly does not. It seems to me that the point of a law such as in the case of signature gathering for ballot inclusion is about the validity of the signatories not the signature gatherer. Most of these types of laws are designed to make it more difficult for those who aren’t members of the accepted political class to get on the ballot. They use arcane conditions to protect their power. I don’t support that nor do I support stupidity in the name of the all mighty and supreme “Law” which in this age has come to mean whatever the hell the powerful want it to.
See post # 11.
So you’re that guy with the weird Kokesh infatuation that Lisa Graas loon likes to talk about?
There are a lot of good videos on youtube about it. Mostly what I'm seeing are Paul supporters, but they are finding JOBS! Put moving to New Hampshire in the search window.
If I were younger, I'd think about it, too, but think long and hard. Most seem to be settling in the southern part. Was just telling my daughter today that I'd like to see where my ancestors came from in Coos County, also many from other parts further south like Charlestown. Problem is from what I've read and seen about the northern part is the winters are harsh, growing season is short, and it is hard to heat the homes because I think a lot use heating oil?, kerosene, wood or pellets.
My daughter wondered why some of ours went so far north. I can't answer that, had to clear the land and didn't seem to have much which is why some left for Illinois when that opened up.
Beautiful scenery there, but a lot of the houses that would be affordable even to rent look old and not not attractive old like some here, not kept up as well, probably exceptions. It would be more for young, healthy people.
Those Paul supporters have a lot of energy and youngish, don't think I'd fit in with them but not against all they stand for.
Wow. You must have needed to be placed on suicide watch on the night of May 18th.
Yet we have Ron Paul, the daddy of all the Paulbots, using government to force his perverted moral of homosexuality being equal to heterosexuality on the men and woman of the Armed Forces.
That is not standing for liberty but is forceing a perverted morality on these people. No one should be forced to have to bunk or shower with people who openly express a perversion for the same gender. Yet Paul and other so-called libertarians support using government to force this upon society.
bad show nothing!
Schiff was a bad choice from the very start!
There was ZERO about him on any issue that was conservative
he has more in common with Barney Frank than ANY moderate Republican, let alone Ronald Reagan
And sadly, up till last Feb, I was one of the Tea Party people who wanted him to win because I swallowed the koolaid about his so-called economic knowlege...until I saw the truth!
SCHIFF invests in Americas economic competitors ONLY
NOT A DIME in the USA
how is that smart??
When you invest in the firm that is the economic competitor to your own family, and your family does poorly, and their competitor does well, and you KEEP investing in your familys competitor, YOU ARE PUTTING YOUR FAMILY OUT OF WORK!
Schiff doesnt invest a SINGLE PENNY in AMERICA!!!
pro-immigration and said that there are too many jobs in the US we NEED to let in immigrants???
Peter Schiff admits on camera that he has ZERO money investigated in American corporations or industry. If Peter Schiff refuses to invest in American companies, how can Peter Schiff say he is helping Americans keep their jobs?
This is SCHIFF in his own words!
PETER SCHIFF IS ACTIVELY INVESTING IN FOREIGN COMPETITOR NATIONS THAT ARE PUTTING AMERICANS OUT OF WORK!!!
So what’s the answer? vote for another idiot like Schiff just because he is a new face??
Or do we admit we made a mistake and NOT suppported Vinny Forras like we should have??
Our inheritance from the greatest generation is dependence and lack of choice and the left has educated us that these are the choices, it is not an individual thing, anarchy is an individual thing, culture is an agreement among those that belong to a society that we agree on certain things and this is our culture. Kind of convoluted but true.
The pro-abortion issue would be of concern to me, so I took your invitation and googled it. Here is what I found, in his own words:
“I am the most states rights advocate of all the candidates (though Vinnie may be with me on these issues as well, he lacks the funds or campaign infrastructure to mount a credible race). I oppose any federal restrictions on abortion, oppose any federal funding of abortion, and believe Roe VS. Wade to have been wrongly decided and
would vote to nominate Federal Judges who want to overturn it. While I am personally opposed to partial birth abortions, this too is a states rights issue. I do not believe the Federal government has the constitutional authority to ban it, but I would like individual states
to ban it, and feel that neither the Federal Government nor federal courts have the right to interfere.”
That’s a long way from being pro-abortion. Actually what he is suggesting is a strategy that many in the pro-life circles agree with: get rid of Roe v Wade and let the states decide. AKA divide and conquer.
It would appear that you’re taking liberties with the candidate on his actual position on this issue.
As for the residency of the petition gatherers, the allegation here is petty. Election laws are often structured to trap the unwary.
I noticed that early on, but will answer about some other issues if pressed. Really, if he just sticks with the economy, that wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing. I'm not real confident anybody can fix much of anything at this point, but I'd like to see what somebody like him could do if he did nothing else. Maybe that would be a good thing although, in the Senate, he'd have to take a stand on other matters, so that could become an issue.
He didn't to seem to have much of a chance as it was but was gathering some steam and support.
Yet all laws are an expression of morality.
The problem with libertarians and left-wingers is that they fail to see that and only complain about legislating morality when they oppose something.
There is nothing special about libertarians or left-wingers when it comes to pushing their own legislated culture. They do it all of the time.
with respect to his personal feelings, he would not make it illegal, women have a right to abort, he is against 3rd trimester,
BUT FIRST TRIMESTR OR SECOND ONE ITS OKAY
Hear it in his own words
So advocating that the murder of innocent life is acceptable if his preferred process is followed is a stand for ‘liberty’???
Any enemy of Peter Schiff is an enemy of mine. Scumbag Linda must really be worried. I’m going to send him more money now-thanks!
Peter Schiff Ping!
That said, I still think Schiff is the best of the bunch considering the economic mess this country is in.
Is that so. Many of the Code Pink Paulbots seem to want to make most of America their enemy including our Armed Forces. No wonder you all want to push for fags serving openly in the military, you all hate our Republic.
Why? we all knew that the RINOS in CT were against Vinny, we knew they were against Simmons and Schiff, too
McMahon was their choice last year when Chris Healy, the CT GOP CHAIRMAN had his wife HIRED by McMahon’s campaign for about $20K a month!
Any honest look at Schiff when compared against Simmons, Simmons was a lion on defense, but he was a liberal on all social issues, he has an IDENTICAL STANCE as Schiff on ALL moral issues
MORAL issues are what defines a RINO, and every thinking American knows that
However, the libertarians were never keen on morals, anyways, so it is no doubt Schiff was their guy.
Good job keeping a RINO off the ballot.
