This speech is to my ears an instant classic. Peter Schiff is not (as far as I know) a Christian, but he’s speaking the truth on the economy and the criminal actions of our government. It’s funny and pointed, with priceless reminiscences (MP3 version of the speech is here). Can anyone deny Schiff’s outrageous logic on how our government will proceed? The big ripoff is ahead– first for the Chinese and our other creditors, and then for anyone who holds dollars.
Such thievery by our government is downright embarrassing. Even though God uses even evil men in government for his purposes (Romans 13), I see more and more the truth in Murray Rothbard’s aphorism with each passing year: “The state is a band of thieves writ large.”
