Peter Schiff speaks to mainstream DNC delegates who want to see a cap or ban on corporate profits.

Next they will then want to cap how much many a person can make....
Liberalism is worse than stage four cancer..... =.=
Paging John Galt!
“In the end. We were all Kulaks.” - Stalin’s Forced Famine
..and some still believe that four more years of The One is a recoverable situation..?
No wonder the Founders said you had to own land to vote.
The way the economy has been going the last three years they already have.
Just Illegal or immoral profits. (Like graft and behind closed door deals).
Lets make sure the Democratic side of the chamber no longer out does those on the Republicans.
They have made more percapita than the Republicans since sometime in the early 19th century.
I remember the 1950's and the Dems were making over 40% more than their counter parts in the Republican party and the Dems could not justify their income as being business related.
Monkey business Yes. Legit Business No.
Fine. Ban all profits. Then you can ban all jobs because without profits, there are NO JOBS!
let cap how much Clinton can make from his speech !!
I think it’s time to ban democRATS.
There is no place in America for these vermin any longer.
Well said! They’ve finally come out of the closet with this statement: Now they’re very openly, and very brazenly, admitting their Communist leanings.
Sooner or later they will have to be rounded up.
And no, I’m not joking.
No profits is a good strategy if you can stay in business. A whole lot less taxes
Not a shock. They discuss this pretty openly amongst themselves on their wacko websites and obscure cable channels with a couple dozen viewers.
“Capitalism is BROKEN. Time for it to be REPLACED.”
How do you ban that?
Might as well ban gravity.
Well, THAT genie is out of the bottle and won’t be going back in.
Didn't they effectively achieve that by electing obama?
Do these fools realize that no profits = no taxes?
That and "Share the Wealth" were the slogans of Upton Sinclair's 1934 run for governor of California on the Socialist ticket. The elderly will remember this. The Democrats and Republicans had to combine their efforts to defeat him.
The company never showed a profit on paper and the brothers claimed the money they took as income and paid a lower rate than what the corporate rate was at the time.
If the profits of Paramount Pictures was banned, what kind of movies would they make?
Oh? You don't mean those companies? Only ban oil companies profits, or Wall Street companies, or drug companies?
Exactly! It’s baaaaaack...
The b***ards don’t just want to take us back to the Dark Ages, they want to take us back to the stone age... which, even then, I’ll bet bartering and profit taking went on.
These b***ards simply want to exterminate the human race. That’s how much they hate themselves and everyone else.
Horrible as it sounds, that was honestly my first reaction to that video.
Looking across the DNC hall, it occurred to me that the reason they all adore government so much is that because without it, nary a one of them could pour piss out of a boot if the instructions were written on the heel.
Likewise, they detest "profits" because making a profit requires work, the production of something that someone actually wants, and a voluntary exchange of value. Those who can, do. Those who can't become Democrats.
Democrat Party = Home of the uneducated, godless, gubmint cheese eating, rat!!!! This is what government schools have given us!! God help us!!!
Indeed, Karl Marx's dream has come to pass.BTW I just paid my inflated property taxes, so I'm royally PO'd with all this at the moment.
There are days I honestly civil war is inevitable in this country. I don't believe Marxism and freedom can coexist indefinitely.
“I don’t believe Marxism and freedom can coexist indefinitely.
Put another way, eventually those who are always pulling the wagon come to resent those who are always riding in the wagon.
Redistribution, reparations, social justice—call it whatever you like but what it boils down to is you and I always pay while others always take.
This is why I can’t understand how most here are anti-abortion. Do you really want commies to breed more commies?
They only want to ban other peoples profits. The nomenclature will still live the high life.
This is exactly what the democrats are after. “Profit” is a four letter word.
Corporations (even small ones) are completely evil. We should not work for them. We should all get government jobs.
Uh, not quite.
They only mean to ban some...well, OK, most profits.
But what they mean by "banning" is simply, "if you make a "profit", it will, in it's entirety, revert to government coffers. Then they will "redistribute" it, or something like that.
If you make a "profit", you are engaging in immoral, unethical, and anti-American behavior, and laws to reign this type of behavior in is in the public good. They allow the business to continue, they simply "regulate" the excess.
There will be corollaries to this law, such as taxing anyone with "income" over, say, $250,000 at a rate of 104%, or something like that.
People like entrepreneurs/inventors will be permitted to retain a "living wage" (to be determined by the scions of Political Correctness on the Left), but anything over that reverts to the Treasury.
All overseas bank accounts, of course, will be outlawed, and once this law passes, all monies in those accounts revert to the treasury, as it will be assumed such monies placed in accounts deemed "beyond the reach of government" must, ipso facto, be the result of illegal behavior and are, thus, ill-gotten gains. These monies may, or may not, be "redistributed", depending on how our fearless leaders feel on that particular day.
There will others, rest assured, but I'm sure you get the gist of what they are saying to you.
As the horse Boxer opined in Animal Farm, "The answer, as I see it, is for me to work harder."
Remind your Democrat and otherwise Communist-thinking friends of this.
You have been warned!!!
Elections have consequences!
Take it elsewhere, pal. FR is pro-life. Don’t like it? Spin on it.
They aren’t “breeders” anyway. Just ask them.
Actual quote text?
A few years back at dinner, she went on a tangent about corporate salaries, etc. that these guys made too much money and that was so wrong and something should be done about it. Blah, blah, blah.
I finally had enough (had promised hubby many times that I would bite my tongue), but enough was enough. I asked her who would decide who made "too much money". Was she going to decide, how about me ? Heaven forbid it was the government to decide. How about if I decide that she makes too much money ? She can take a paycut.
Needless to say, she was had no response to my questions and sat there speechless. Dinner ended rather quickly after that and the next time we saw them (about a year or so ago), we had a surprisingly pleasant dinner since she chose to keep her stupid comments to herself (but still definitely a zero zombie).
Ah, good point considering one of their heroes is Margarat Sanger.
Liberals want to control EVERYTHING from how much water you flush in your toilet, to what you eat, to where you will live and how much you will make at work.
At this point,I’d rather it be sooner. Why wait until the country is so impoverished that resistance will be much harder?
