Amid the growing sings of power from big spending and big government opponents, the National Inflation Association (NIA) has been flexing its political muscle by appealing to its members to contact a national TV network to support a Tea Party candidate.
The candidate in question is Peter Schiff, who is running for the United States Senate from Connecticut. He has declared himself a Tea Party candidate—devoted to fiscal prudence, debt elimination and small government—but the NIA has criticized Fox News for "blacking out" his campaign.
"NIA believes that Peter Schiff fully understands the hyperinflationary crisis our country is approaching and how to prevent it," the organization said in a statement.
It added that "we need [him] in Washington if we want to have any hope of preventing hyperinflation and the complete destruction of the U.S. dollar."
To that end, the NIA has appealed to its members to email Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly to encourage them to invite Schiff on their shows.
In the upcoming Aug. 10 Republican primary, Schiff will run against Linda McMahon, former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment.
