In 2006, businessman Peter Schiff warned of a coming financial crisis. Now, Peter sees the same problems repeating themselves in Washington. As Connecticut’s Senator, he will stop Washington’s spending binges that destroy jobs and lead to higher taxes. Born in New Haven, Peter lives in Fairfield County, where he raises his seven-year-old son.

This upcoming election should result in landslide crushing Liberals. I have very little problem with CLASSIC liberalism. New liberals are marxists and new conservatives are still socialists. Fuckin' discusting. Schiff is the man. Libertarianism forever. I will protect it with ever ounce of my (supposedly) rational being. :)
