I'm writing to ask you to support Peter Schiff's senate race (he was Ron Paul's economic adviser in the 08 presidential campaign). Today he announced that he will run if he can raise enough money to win (approx $20 million). Every little bit helps, my first donation was today for $25.
Please check out his video on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlnkuskRwYI
4:48 seconds into the video he talks about his possible run.
P.S. Peter has promised to refund the money if he decides there is not enough interest and doesn't run.
P.S. I apologize for "spamming up" an anarchy = no leader = no senate blog with this post but I sincerely believe that a Peter Schiff run can enlighten the open mind and help the remnant find more people, much like the Ron Paul campaign did for me.
Below is the email that was sent to me earlier today.
A Message from Peter Schiff
I just wanted to let you know that I am now able to take online donations on my website http://schiffforsenate.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=45b009ba848bc9d8a6cd9bda5&id=e2eb643946&e=2c440ac975.
My decision to run is largely dependent on the level of early support and contributions I receive from people like you. I have commissioned polling that shows this to be a winnable race and I am ready to make the personal and financial sacrifice to run, but now it's up to the people to show their support because no candidate can win this race alone. Over the next several weeks we will be taking contributions at my website http://schiffforsenate.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=45b009ba848bc9d8a6cd9bda5&id=eb96892918&e=2c440ac975, and weighing the public support for my candidacy. If the support is there, I will answer the call. However, if the public sentiment for my run is not there, I will return the contributions.
Free-market conservatives have an opportunity in 2010. With your help and support, I believe this will be our generation's chance to make a difference for ourselves and our children. Join me. Show your support for free market principles by making a contribution on my website http://schiffforsenate.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=45b009ba848bc9d8a6cd9bda5&id=20f8d13f9a&e=2c440ac975.
It's time we made ourselves heard.
