I mean seriously?
Ron Paul drops in one poll and now Schiff is infatuated by Herman Cain! Just listened to his show and the first 10 minutes are like listening to some alien that has taken over Schiff's body.
When you support a candidate you don't advocate another candidate or imply that your candidate is less electable than another.
Slowly, bit by bit, my love for Schiff is diminishing. I gave him $300 bucks for his campaign in Connecticut and made hundreds of calls for him. Now he's just launched his own SuperPAC and now he talking about how Herman Cain is the man!

Of interest, perhaps
Huge Peter Schiff fan here. I’m glad he’s on board with Cain.
I’m not a huge fan of his. He’s been pushing Paul for years. But if he sees the light on Cain now, more power to him.
Vote for Herman Cain!
He’s a brilliant guy. I don’t expect him to agree with me on every issue.
Who cares if he ‘pushes Paul’? He can explain Austrian economics like nobody has since Milton Friedman.
That was one angry Paulistinian.
Google this Guy. I just heard about him a month or so ago.. He predicted the economic collapse. They made fun of him. They made bets on him being wrong. There is over a million search hits on “ peter schiff was right”
This is an awesome endorsement.
Ron Paul is a kook. So I’m glad to see any and all PaulBots come to their senses and realize that Ron Paul will never be POTUS.
I’m a huge Schiff fan. Schiff is still a Ron Paul supporter. Cain is third on his pick, thats all. Nothing to get your knickers tied up in a knot
Schiff is better than Ron Paul imho. He can articulate the ideology much better than Ron Paul in a way any layman can understand
Tell that to the dude who was complaining in the article.
Cain is also my 3rd choice, but I like him alot. He’s a breath of fresh air, after watching the two blow-dried windsocks from MA and TX
Schiff is all over the board and a rude interviewer. Not my cup a tea.
Cain has one big negative strike against him and that was his response that Greenspan was his fav fed chairman
Schiff feels the need to correct and educate ppl. He couldn’t help himself, thats why I like him. He’s an activist
Well, for such a newbie, you are right at home here. Schiff is well knowned and appreciated here.
I truly laughed out loud.---Just great!
Peter Schiff Mortgage Bankers Speech Nov/13/06
Every need to listen to this speech. Notice the date. 2006!!
If it were about (insert: liberal Schiff equivalent) on Obama,
it was not Infatuation, but true love.
Okay, who's your favorite Fed. Chairman?
obviously Paul Volcker
Greenspan was Reagan’s choice AND he constantly urged Congress to reduce the deficit and reform entitlements. So it’ snot as bad as RuPaul imagines.
‘Cain has Greatness’
It is not hard to find those on daily paul or ron paul forums.
But I’d assume that Schiff’ll support Ron Paul in the end.
Did you mean to add the sarcasm tag?
Milton Friedman was a monetarist of the Chicago school.
At least he ain’t dissing 999 like a bunch of other half-wits.
You’re right, I shouldn’t have said that in that way. What I should have said is that he has the ability to break down Austrian School conomics in the same way that Friedman was able to simplify Chicago School economics.
IMHO, Schiff is the closest thing we have these days to Milton Friedman. A far cry indeed, but he’s still worth a look.
Interesting. Defection? I’ve heard this play out with other candidates as well. The Florida straw poll had many defectors, many of whom were for Perry, until they met Herman Cain.
The initial polling done after the first South Carolina televised debate on Fox had folks who were for Romney or another candidate went overwhelmingly for Herman Cain.
He’s not a flavor of the week, folks, his climb has been on a steady rise. Don’t let the media paint him as such.
Herman Cain may not have read about Warren Harding...but he at least has graaped what the RinoCracy has been desperate to paper over and ignore....that Tax and Regulatory Policy is the basis of our present economic woes.
President Warren Harding figured it out in 1920...
Congress and the Executive Branch have lots to do.
So far theyre not doin it right..
Harding cut the governments budget nearly in half between 1920 and 1922. The rest of Hardings approach was equally laissez-faire. Tax rates were slashed for all income groups. The national debt was reduced by one-third. The Federal Reserves activity, moreover, was hardly noticeable. As one economic historian puts it, Despite the severity of the contraction, the Fed did not move to use its powers to turn the money supply around and fight the contraction. 2 By the late summer of 1921, signs of recovery were already visible. The following year, unemployment was back down to 6.7 percent and was only 2.4 percent by 1923.
BTW..ole Warren ALSO fixed immigration...
President Harding signed into law the Emergency Quota Act which sought to control immigration following World War I and preserve the distinctive American culture by ensuring the majority of immigrants came from the historically compatible cultures of Northern Europe. This law aimed to bring wages of hard working Americans under control by limiting immigration to 3% of the 1910 census. It was followed on by a similar act in 1924, after Mr. Hardings death.
A Warren Harding prescription...if filled ...would ignite the afterburners on the US job machine and the economy. However DC would have to yield on a tremendous amount of power. Our job as We the People...is to persuade them of the utility ..shall we say..of doing so. In all probability the same minds that made the mess...arent capable of the solution however.
BTW any takers that Bammy couldnt even tell you that Warren Harding was one of his predecessors in office?
Even more telling about what our betters in the RinoCracy think of a Constitutional President..
IMHO...what Cain proposes...in 9-9-9 is too little....way too little in fact to get done what needs to be accomplished. But at least he has a glimmer of understanding. But he is a creature of the machine..and consequently he may understand that if he is too candid...he’ll wind up with Palinitis.
The problem with 999 is that it has a New National Sales Tax in it. Last I heard, Tea Party stood for Taxed Enough Already.
And Tea Party wants a new Federal Sales Tax on top of their State Sales Tax?
I think that Cain is at the stage right now that they’re hearing 999, and Cain’s repeating it all the time. He’s embrasing his plan, selling it, making people think that it’s wonderful, because he does have excellent salesmanship skills.
And they’ve heard it’s a “bold plan” and “fix it” and any number of extremely compelling sound bites.
People haven’t caught on that Cain is selling a NEW TAX.
Ron Paul supporters love to jump on the Fed tenure. But he wasn’t a banker, he was an economist, really, feeding back employment data and whatnot. Cain will be able to explain the difference.
But the people know what a “New Tax” is.
Read my lips no new taxes. clap clap clap.
They don’t want a new tax in 2012. Cain’s plan would likely have worked better in a year without a tea party. And there’s no doubt that there’s a lot of buzz about Cain and his 999 plan, but when everyone starts calling it Cain’s New Federal Sales Tax Plan, instead of 999, it just won’t sound as great.
think before you write
999 REPLACES the exisiting tax code
It gets rid of the income tax and thousands of pages of tax regulations.
There would be billions saved in just compliance costs (tax lawyers would become extincta)
The IRS would be GONE
And there would be no “pre-bate” as in the stupid stupid stupid “fair tax” (when you start giving out a prebate, every Democrap poitician will promise to make the handout bigger every year, and it willl be the death of the Republican party if they dont also promise to raise it)
Huge Peter Schiff fan here. Im glad hes on board with Cain.
I’ll have to remember that! Paulistinian! LOL
Good to have Schiff on board! The more the merrier!
no new taxes
