I just can't get enough of this video!!!
To further expand on my comment below, for those who run into people who actually think this would be a good idea (and yes, I know Peter Schiff doesn't actually believe this would be a good idea, anyone who has ever heard him say one sentence knows he doesn't think this is a good idea):
Could you imagine how awful our computers would be if we had a law in the 80s banning corporate profits? Imagine what that would have to Apple and Microsoft. They made huge profits by revolutionizing the computer industry, then used those profits for research and development. The technology of computers has progressed so much and much more quickly than any other invention before its time. If this were a law, we might have just gotten around to using hard disks instead of floppy disks.
How Schiff managed to resist the temptation of wake-up-slapping them in the face (not too hard, not for hurting) with a ...
"Hello ? Hello ! Hello ?! Hellooooooo ??!! What did I just ask you again ?! Huh ?!"
I mean. Really.
"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff. I care quite a bit about language.
Did you know? 1,299,830,899,481 can be factored in no more than 55,655 steps.
What right there and then? Not exactly the best zone to try that one. If they're already there believing what they're saying they're a lost cause. They're the sheep and he knows that. They will wake up when everyone else around them wakes up and then only then.
You never know though there could be out-takes.
Well, I did write :
"... managed to resist the temptation..."
I didn't write he should have surrendered to it.
yeah I noticed ;)
I wish he would have posed the exact same question at the RNC...I wouldn't be surprised one bit if he got the same response from the rank and file GOPers. Anyone who can chant USA over the earnest calls for division and other important matters and not even think about the ramifications probably would go along with any stupid question posed to them. Yeah, I think the GOPers would support a cap too if they thought that is what good little Republicans were supposed to think.
Funny, but sad. Great job Mr Schiff!
I hope he does more videos like this one.
This is what happens when America lets the government take control over the entire national education system....centralization never works.
Just imagine what our healthcare system will look like in ten years.......
Never be afraid to ask simple questions.
I don't want to be in a political organization with people like this. They are too far gone to understand liberty. I've seen this kind of ignorance firsthand. I was once handing out super brochures and asked someone if they knew about RP and he responded: "Is he performing tonight?" It is our right to abolish/change gov't when it becomes destructive. I've heard of the Free State Project. New Hampshire is too cold. We need to do something.

considering his delegates
In the MSM fasionable term, Paulbots, would you call these people "O"bots or "Demo"bots, or just "Bots"?
Like automatons... Does that work?
or autObamanations :)
Nothing is as it seems. We live in a matrix. What we should be fighting is "the system". The election is just a show to make people believe we are free. We are not free. The election is scripted and predetermined.
"you can have it just the way I found it" could become a cold reality when there are no jobs left.

Never had I seen such a maze of mental thickness and imbecility; no, not since last week’s Republican Convention.

On the same rearend. That is the Democrats and Republicans.
my professor was giving us a political placement test and one of the statements on the test was "It's a shame when a commodity as abundant as water is bottled and sold by corporations." There was nearly unanimous consensus that that was a true statement. Most in my class also strongly believed that the rich aren't taxed nearly enough.
The Democratic Party has literally been taken over by communists who are hell-bent on destroying free enterprise.
I take back the mean things I may or may not have said about Peter schiff this is some awesome trollololin. I wish this would go viral.

But we need high-quality writer/comedians like Samantha Bee:
Here is part of her Daily Show bit where she went around the RNC exposing how idiot neocons are:
What a colossally stupid idea. This will do nothing but punish young companies which provide good products. Furthermore, it will stifle these companies who are successful from generating profits which can be invested into expansion of operations. Lower competition always leads to more corruption and higher prices.
Remember the advice of Hazlitt: The good politician and economist is the one who takes into account what is seen and what is NOT seen.
Peter Schiff wasn't being serious with the idea, he was trolling the DNC, that's why it's so dang funny.
"Be a listener only, keep within yourself, and endeavor to establish with yourself the habit of silence, especially on politics." -Thomas Jefferson
Oh yeah I know that. I was just making my comment to so people will know what to say should they encounter anyone who actually thinks this is a good idea.
Trust me, I am a huge Peter Schiff fan and I am well aware he was incognito.
I laughed so hard. WOW those delegates got trolled! It's so funny it's sad. I love commentators who can get to the foundational issues that truly separate us. What is the role of government? For the DNC it seems to be redistributuion of wealth and to (try to) provide for you everything you could ever need. For Liberterians/Paul people it is that the government is to protect the rights that you inherently have. To make sure no one infringes on your rights and that is it. That is why we need a military (for defense, to keep other countries from infringing on our rights both individual and collective) and that is why we need a justice system. But that's about it.
I'm still shaking my head at these clowns and their ban profits. Nice job Peter Schiff.
May be some day you will realize that the defense and justice services can be privatized as well.
“With laws shall our land be built up, but with lawlessness laid waste.”
...the role of government is redistribution of wealth and to provide for everything you could ever need...but with caps.
