Although the media seeks to a) crown Attorney General Blumenthal the winner and b) crown WWE magnate Linda McMahon the GOP nominee there is still a liberty/tea party candidate to vote for:  Peter Schiff.  Schiff will be on the ballot in the Nutmeg State.  I urge all the friends of liberty in the Connecticut area (I see you in New Haven with the Yale for Ron Paul sweat shirt – come out and help Peter win!) to support Schiff. 

Schiff on the issues is great; let’s start with Education:

We should eliminate the U.S. Department of Education and return this vital function to state and local governments where it belongs.  With local control, federal funds would be returned to states where they would be utilized far more effectively.  We need to bring competition back to higher education, allow market forces to drive cost down and quality up. As tuitions rises our children suffer, saddled with huge debits and little job prospects.   I want our kids to graduate well educated and DEBT-FREE.


We should make national defense the federal government’s top priority by ending its involvement in other areas not authorized by the Constitution. Let’s truly have a policy of national defense, not national offense.

We should end the concept of nation building and close unneeded foreign military bases that drain resources from more important uses.

Peter Schiff is also against cap and trade, Obamacare, and the appointment of Federal judges who are not solid constitutionalists.  Try this from his economic package:

The same irresponsible financial policies that got Wall Street into trouble are now repeating themselves in Washington— only this time on an even bigger scale. As early as 2004, Peter Schiff started warning about the looming financial crisis. His book, Crash Proof, published in Feb 2007, outlined how monetary and regulatory policies distorted market forces, resulting in risky mortgages that would lead to a severe financial crisis. His predictions came true in 2008!
Peter remains a strong opponent of the government’s $700 billion Wall Street bailout package. As Connecticut’s next Senator, he will keep Washington’s spending addiction in check. Peter believes that we cannot borrow and spend our way to economic prosperity. Most Connecticut families are making cutbacks during this recession, and Washington needs to match their sacrifice.

  • No More Bailouts: Peter Schiff Was a Vocal Critic of the $ 700 Billion Bailout Package (TARP) & Will Always Oppose Government Handouts
  • Impose a Hard Cap on the National Debt to Control Government Spending
  • End All Pork Barrel Spending & Congressional Earmarks
  • Oppose Obama’s “Stimulus Package” that Puts America Deeper in Debt

The Tea Party activists should find Schiff’s position on social issues to be acceptable: 

The regulation of social issues, such as abortion and marriage, fall within this category.

Personal preferences aside, U.S. Senators must not interfere with a state’s rights to self-govern.

Concerned citizens must look to their respective state legislators and state constitutions regarding their state’s authority to regulate in these areas.

Schiff also opposes the use of the Federal spending power to do powers not enumerated. 

The Connecticut GOP voters have a choice:  More of the same or a liberty candidate.  It’s a no brainer.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
