I've followed Peter Schiff for a long time (here's why, the short version and the long). He has his own broker-dealer firm, Euro Pacific Capital. He says the government regulations are so onerous now that he could not have started this company today.
Worse, some of these regulations are preventing him from creating jobs NOW. How absurd is that? People want to do business with him, and he is not allowed to hire any more people until the arbitrary regulators say yes. How many other companies face the same problems: actual limits on hiring?
What kind of country is this? Who really owns you, your property, and your business? Apparently, government does. It's a pathetic joke when people talk about this as a free society with capitalism- that is, free markets. We've got to restore free markets and respect for natural rights. Getting a President like Ron Paul would be a big step in the right direction.
