I still shake my head thinking about it.
Image what Peter Schiff must think about the public rejecting him and the games that are played in the primary process. Sad fact it shakes out to winning, not doing what is right. I don't think he understood the "game" of politics. He put his ideas out there and thought that would be enough. Kind of naive in that respect if my take on it is correct. Politics today is about promising what people want to hear, not being honest. Shame on so many shallow people that drag us down to that level as a society.
