Investment Advisor Peter Schiff Appeals to 60,000 in E-mail Blast

Peter Schiff author of Crash Proof and President of Euro Pacific Capital has sent all 60,000 subscribers a missive with praise for Ron Paul, and more importantly a call for donations.

Call to Action

Congressman Ron Paul, America’s best hope for the future.

I recently had the pleasure of personally handing the Honorable Ron Paul (the only member of Congress truly worthy of that title) a $2,300 check (the legal maximum) as my contribution toward his presidential campaign. I have never given one dime to a politician (though Congressman Paul is more of a statesman than a politician) in my life, and you know what; it felt great. It was the best $2,300 I ever spent. The purpose of this email is to urge every single one of my clients, every subscriber to my newsletter, and every one in my database, to make a similar contribution.

There are over 60,000 names in my database. If a significant percentage of us donate $2,300 to Ron Paul, he will have a decent shot at being the Republican nominee, and he is probably the only Republican candidate capable of wining the Presidency in 2008. Come election time, this country will likely be in a severe recession, and Ron Paul is the only Republican able to distance himself from President Bush, who will clearly be blamed for the mess our economy will be in.

Like me, Ron Paul was against America’s decision to invade Iraq. Unfortunately, our predictions regarding what would happen if we did have all been proven correct. However, the one good thing that could potentially come of this whole fiasco is that it may be the single biggest factor making Ron Paul so electable. If that is the price of putting the only principled man in Congress into the Oval Office then perhaps it was worth it.

Unfortunately, most of the criticism of our phony economic expansion has come from the left. The mindless cheerleading of the right will leave them devoid of any credibility on economic issues. Ron Paul is the only Republican who can say “I told you so.” If, as a result of right wing rhetoric, voters blame capitalism for our problems, this nation will take a giant turn to the left. While many on the left have criticized the economy, they have mainly done so for the wrong reasons and their “solutions” will only make the situation worse.

Fortunately we have the power to stop them and we cannot let the opportunity to do so pass us by. This is a unique moment in history, a fork in the road to serfdom. We may actually be able to prove our founding fathers wrong in their belief that democracy does not work (For those of you who do not know our nation was founded as a Republic not a Democracy. For more on the difference between the two forms of government read my new book Crash Proof. Click here to order your copy.) Perhaps with your help we can prove that the special interests of political factions can actually be overcome by an inspired electorate motivated solely by the love of freedom and a respect for the constitution.

If you are fortunate enough to be one of my clients, writing a $2,300 check should not be a problem. As I have likely made you tons of money over the years, here is an opportunity to donate some of it to a worthy cause. We have made our money by betting against the U.S and betting against the dollar. Giving $2,300 of our winnings to Ron Paul gives us the opportunity to bet ON America for a change. And it’s a bet none of us can afford to lose, and the best part about it is that if we all make this bet together we can’t lose.

My penchant for foreign investments has from time to time caused some of my critics to label me unpatriotic. While such attacks are clearly out of line, using some of our foreign profits to secure the election of Ron Paul goes a long way toward defusing such allegations.

If you are not a client and you think $2,300 is a lot of money, it’s not. In fact, if Ron Paul is not our next President, such a sum will be practically worthless by the end of the term of whoever is. So what do you have to lose? Just write the check and hope for the best.

Do not just send in $50 or $100, dig down deep and pony up. If you are married send him $4,600. Think of what is at stake. Let’s not let Ron Paul lose this election for lack of money. Think about the sacrifices others have made for this country. Think of those who have given their lives to secure the liberties we are now losing to a tyrannical Federal Government. The signers of the Declaration of Independence not only risked their sacred honor but their very lives. You have a chance to do something to reclaim the principles embedded in that document yet risk nothing but a lousy 2,300 bucks, the cost of a single plasma TV. If we all make that one small sacrifice, maybe, just maybe, those who have died defending our freedoms may finally rest in peace.

Giving money or voting for any other political candidate, Democrat or Republican, is a complete waste of time, effort and money. The only person in the race whose victory will make any difference what-so-ever is Ron Paul. Even if he does not win, just having his positions heard by a wider audience will make a bigger difference to the country than the outcome of the election itself.

Do not get me wrong; electing Ron Paul will not stop America’s day of reckoning from coming. The piper will have to be paid no matter who is in the White House. However, President Ron Paul will be extremely important if we are going to dig our way out of this giant hole. Any other declared presidential candidate will make the job far more difficult if not completely impossible.

Rebuilding a viable industrial economy will require a return to our constitutional roots of limited government, low taxes, minimal regulation, and sound money. Ron Paul is the only candidate capable of bring those reforms about. He has already proven that his principles are more important then his own reelection. He is the only man in Congress I know that power did not corrupt. In fact, with Ron Paul as President, many others in Congress might actually find the courage to vote their conscience as well.

If you do not know who Ron Paul is, visit his web site at www.RonPaul2008.com and see for yourself. He is the real deal, a true statesmen and citizen politician in the traditions envisioned by the framers of our Republic. From time to time I get emails from people suggesting that I run for President. While such suggestions are indeed flattering, I realize that they are offered purely in jest. However, for those who agree with my take on things, a vote for Ron Paul is the closet thing to a vote for me that you will ever have an opportunity to cast. He understands the real problems facing our nation and knows what must be done to enable “we the people” to solve them for ourselves.

Here is the link to make your contribution. https://www.ronpaul2008.com/donate?c=SCHIFF

If you donate by telephone or use the general donation web page, make sure to reference the project code “Schiff” when you do. That way I can better judge the effectiveness of this email.

Once you have done so forward this email to every contact in your address book. Let’s give Ron Paul the greatest political war chest in history. In modern American politics money talks. With your help, Ron Paul’s voice can be the loudest one of all.

Sincerely,

Peter Schiff
President and Chief Global Strategist

Wow

What a wonderful letter. The potential here if they accept, is over 120 million bucks.

Woohoo.

just came to me

how will the media react to this..

He just asked his clients to donate $138,000,000

OMG

wow

I cannot say anything to that. I had to break out my calc. I first glance it appears to be 138K but NO it is actually 138M!

Peter Schiff...

If people trust this guy with their personal finances, they will surely trust his judgment in a statesman who is also fiscally responsible and advocates a sound monetary system. Peter Schiff is no bullsh*t. Every single one of those 60,000 people should be RP supporters and that is huge. It is only a matter of time before we reach critical mass.

OUTSTANDING

Quite possibly the best letter of support I've read to date.

We are about to be on the ride of our lives. Do not stop now. Get out and tell more people face to face about Dr. Paul.

We own the internet! Let's get out and put up more signs and talk to new people in person.

It's our show now.

I really like Peter Schiff.

I really like Peter Schiff. He's on major news networks as a correspondant quite often, including Fox and Bloomberg. His following has money, and could quite possibly be persuaded!!!

Digging deep

I have always enjoyed and for the most part agreed with your analysis of the American economy. Presently, all the government data/figures are blatant lies trying deceive the public of just how close our financial system is to collapsing. Today the USD broke below 76.
I wrote a post not that long ago saying we can have tens of thousands of dollars illegally extorted from us during our lifetime or send as much of the $2300 we can afford to hopefully get Ron Paul elected president and free ourselves of this unconstitutional IRS.
And yes, the world is on its way to rendering the USD as being valuless, so give as much as you can as soon as you can and have your money do something that is priceless - get Ron Paul elected president.

jimt

I have delt

I have delt with Peter Schiff and he has made me some money! Peter is a first class guy .. He is just like Ron Paul. watch how all the supposide talking head investors on FOX tell him how crazy he is for his views on the ailing economy.. This Man is smart and people who are his clientel are smart.. this could help us HUGE..

Email Date?

I'm curious as to when this email actually went out.

At opensecrets.org, I looked him up and it says that he made this $2300 donation on 7/9/2007, almost 4 months ago.

In the above posted email he says, "I recently had the pleasure of personally handing the Honorable Ron Paul". Generally, people don't refer to 4 months ago as recently, so, I'm wondering if this is old news...either way, BOOYAH!!!

Dated Today

Jawdropping

....as they say on the official site.

What a terrifically bold move! I love how Dr. Paul makes us brave and brings out the hidden patriot in all of us! But we're all not hiding anymore!

THUD!!!

THUD!!!

(that was the sound of my jaw hitting the floor..)

carpe libertas

pinch me

this can't be real. or can it? dare i hope?

listen to me, i sound like Sandra frikkin Dee

god damn

I had to take take out my calculator....and if all 60,000 do what he asks...it comes to about 138,000,000.00$ WOW
I think our 5th of November inspired him

Ok lets not get ahead of ourselves

If only 6000 of the 60,000 clients donated the full amount, we have another $13.8 million right there.

But again, you're accepting on blind faith that this is a real email from Peter Schiff. Someone needs to verify it.

If verified, then forward to FOX NEWS and BLOOMBERG and CNBC immediately.

decent proof

From Wikipedia:

"Peter Schiff has heavily endorsed Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul."

You can explore this a little to see videos, radio clips, etc. that indicate the likely validity of this post.

Now I know why I love this

Now I know why I love this guy! I saw him on a business show over the weekend telling everyone how he has made his clients rich betting against the dollar and investing in foreign interests. Everone on the show dismisses him just as they dismiss Dr. Paul. He wants to invest in the US, but he is is well-aware of the problems with our economy and knows its a bad idea.

Hopefully this will lead to some great donations, and give him the ability to start investing domestically again.

This rules

Not much else to say. I hope some of them listen.

trust me the crowd that

trust me the crowd that invests with Peter Schiff are not your average Joes.. they know what s going on in this country.. it'l be good to see how the fundraising goes with this email for the next few weeks!

WOW!

Say what? for real? WOW!
