Peter Schiff Named Economic Advisor to Campaign

January 25, 2008 4:44 pm EST

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA – Newly appointed Ron Paul economic advisor, Peter Schiff, issued the following statement about Dr. Paul’s proposed comprehensive economic revitalization plan:

“We need a plan that stimulates savings and production not more of the reckless borrowing and consumption that got us into this mess in the first place. Ron Paul’s plan is the only one that amounts to a step in the right direction. If you want meaningful change - for the better that is - Ron Paul is the only candidate capable of delivering it. The others merely promise to continue the failed policies that are at the root of our current economic problems.”

Pony up some money!

I've read that Peter has 60,000 subscribers on his news letter/email list. If this is true maybe he can get them to pony up some real money, and help us out here.

60,000 x $ 100 = 6,000,000 dollars
60,000 x $1,000 = 60,000,000 dollars
60,000 x $2,300 = 138,000,000 dollars

Now thats a war chest!!


The Winds of Change!

Schiff did just that...

He sent an e-mail to his client list several weeks ago asking each of them to put up the maximum donation. He was advising them it was a good investment.


Peter Schiff is a well-know and repected man, someone who agrees
with the TRUTH that Dr. Paul speaks about and the same thing another truth teller, the Comptroller general, our chief nation's accountant
is warning us about. Yea!!!! This is a very good move!

Peter Schiff

Wow! What a huge surprise and boost! I have been watching Peter for some years on the news channels and he sure knows what the hell he is talking about! He called the housing bubble and has been telling everyone that the s**t is going to hit the fan and it has! He also suggested buying gold and silver long ago, and if you took his advice like I did then your way up in this bear market! Gold and Silver and Peter Schiff, rock on ! Go Ron Paul! Tremendous momentum boost with Peter Schiff of Euro Capital on board , WOW !

VP Material?

Sure others with disagree, but count me in.

I can't seem to get an answer

I responded to the bukojack question in the "Is Irwin Schiff related to Jacob Schiff?" thread here:

Here's a very relevant article:

Irwin Schiff's Secrets of Living an Income Tax-Free Life
1 hr 57 min 40 sec - Nov 16, 2006

Irwin Schiff has heroically released this Important Information for FREE here on Google Video.

You already have seen our hero, Irwin ... all » Schiff, on America Freedom to Fascism, and learned that he is presently a political prisoner, jailed illegally for a NON-CRIME.

This two-volume video set was digitally mastered in Hollywood. Discover exactly how "voluntary compliance" means exactly what it sounds like ie means with regard to the income tax. The Video Seminar comes with about 50 documents soon to appear on in the great giveaway area.


I'm very excited about this, Peter Schiff is exactly the right guy to step in and speak aggressively about the realities we face. McCain's an expert on the economy? Please. Now we can hear from someone who knows how it works and has been giving good, reality-based, successful advice to his clients.

Crash Proof, indeed.

Great Choice

Peter Schiff is an excellent choice. Ron Paul has really chosen wisely. He would be a great Secretary of the Treasury.

Now I know that Irwin, the

Now I know that Irwin, the tax evading marauder, is his father but, is Peter Schiff related to the notorious money changer, Jacob Schiff?

On the contrary

What do you know about Irwin Schiff? That man has risked life and limb in order to fight this ugly system of taxation that we have. He is a patriot of the first order.

Are you defending the system of taxation that we live under?

Where on earth did you get the term "marauder"? WTF?

Do you know of Irwin Schiff's arguments? Are you certain that Irwin Schiff's arguments are wrong, or have you just heard that he is serving time? Have you any idea what kind of treatment Irwin Schiff received in the courts? It is a national disgrace.

Now comes Peter, the son. He has a slightly different focus than his father, but you see the same boldness and courage. His commentary over the last couple years has been spot on and he goes right to the core monetary/financial issues.


Hey Average American,

Hey Average American,

I meant no disservice towards Irwin Schiff by using the term marauder. I was using the term in the best sense of the word. I was trying to be clever. I guess I was not. Next time I'll put more time into choosing my words in my posts because I obviously used the term incorrectly. Sorry I offended you.

I love Irwin Schiff.

I was simply trying to get an answer to a question that no one seems to know. Do you know the answer?

No worries

Hey bukojack,

Thanks for clarifying, and sorry I got all worked up. I don't have an answer to your question either!

At any rate, it looks like we are both glad to see Peter Schiff join the campaign. What an asset, and what a shot in the arm.

FWIW, I once asked Irwin about that in email

He didn't reply. Of course, he doubtless was getting far more emails than he could answer, so draw your own conclusions on the significance.

Get active NOW to put Ron in the general election.

What is begun in anger, ends in shame.

Peter Schiff is a straight

Peter Schiff is a straight shooter and a true patriot like Dr. Paul. Search for his videos on youtube. He regularly goes on Fox Business to battle the corporate cheerleaders. His style of oration is much more aggressive and succinct than Dr. Pauls, which is why I think he'd make a great VP. He has a great skepticism about him which gives him the ability to cut through government trickeration and see what the government is actually doing to give the perception of growth. I thought this interview was particularly impressive:

I can't seem to get an

I can't seem to get an answer to this one.

Maybe no one knows.

Are they related?

I just broke 100 DVDs passed out!

Just got back from canvassing finished my walking list, building up another and grabbing a bite to eat then going back out. Thought maybe some people would like to celebrate with me.

Ron Paul 4 Life!

Thank you OurPlan

You rock!
