    What's stupid is an idiot saying we shouldn't abolish FEMA because it would cost him his job. Your views are entirely self-serving. This is exactly why we should get rid of FEMA: so selfish assholes like you don't get people's tax money.

    If a person who lost their home used their tax money to buy silver, they would be able to build five homes. You can't trust the Government with your money, they are a monopoly and don't have your best interests at heart. They will use your money to kill innocent children and civilians in illegal wars. If you don't see Ron Paul's point of view, you really need to listen to more of his videos and then you will understand what liberty really means.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I swear to you: This conversation with Kommisar is not set up, it is 100% real. I'm not clever enough to invent this kind of stupidity

    Sorry, was that supposed to be funny? You're about as funny as your comments are logical and sensible.

    It was already mentioned before disaster relief could be handled on a state level. There's no reason for FEMA. As RP explained, the federal government should have some intervention since the river runs on state lines, but the involvement should be very limited. Your defense for FEMA basically boils down to you not wanting to lose your job. Too bad; FEMA's a crock of shit.

    You should look up "logical fallacies", because that is all you are using to make your "case". Cry some more please.

    A system of wage-labour and commodity production for sale, exchange, and profit, rather than for the immediate need of the producers. Plentiful examples of capitalism in the pre-modern era exist but, typically, capitalist exchanges were restrained by political and religious control. What has impressed students of modernity is the huge and largely unregulated dominance of capitalist enterprise across political and cultural frontiers. Capitalism ..........

    I work for the IRS, and the other day they were making GS-5 employees stop their usual jobs and opt to work for FEMA possibly relocating all the way to Mississippi to do cleanup etc (we are located in KCMO). They gave others at lower GS levels a choice. I chose not to go after hearing Ron Paul's philosophy, and I would happily lose my job with the IRS for Ron Paul.

    It was an easy reference, that's why. Besides, I don't see you refuting the origins of "corporatism".

    It's a "personal attack" to point out you admitted you don't know the difference between capitalism and corporatism? Hahaha! OK, fine, be a fucking baby.

    Your demand for an example is irrelevant as you admitted you don't know the difference. Again, quit arguing from a position of ignorance and educate yourself.

    Actually, this is not true:

    "Early concepts of corporatism have been traced back to ideas found in Fascist Italy, Nazi Germany, and Medieval Europe."

    -Wiki

    See, you're wrong here. The concept behind "corporatism" the way it is used here is that the government favors some businesses/industries over others.

    Again, you're arguing from a position of admitted ignorance. Stop wasting text space and go read a book or something.

    We need this man as our president!!! I never pray because I don't feel that I have enough respect and I would never pray to ask for something for myself. But dear GOD, right now I pray, not to ask for something for myself, but to ask for something the whole world: PLEASE let this man be the president of the United States of America.

    You're not asking for help, you're forcing everyone to help. Ron Paul has some very true points in this video. Why should I subsidize you to live on the edge of a cliff if my house is as stable as a rock?

    So you don't know the difference between corporatism and capitalism, yet you post on here with the pretense you are knowledgeable enough to form any kind of sound, sane argument? Nice one, douche.

    Yes, you've said that point already, and I've already pointed out your argument relies on fallacies. Are you unable to defend your points without using logical fallacies? It seems so. This is typical of big government advocates and liberals.

    Ron Paul's and libertarian ideas are not simply "just ideas". They are actually practical solutions. It takes a revolution of the minds to return to common sense.

    They are like Tom Woods said of the health care system "not an ideological statement but a practical one to conclude the only way to fix the system is to return to individuals, families, doctors, communities full control over decisions pertaining to their health and well being."

    You can argue whether capitalism devolves in corporatism. That's fine. But it is dishonest to say that there is no difference at all than capitalism. Corporatism has always been defined as corporate welfare, and welfare derives from the state. The very fact that the state favors some firms to others is what separates corporatism from capitalism. The moment the state interferes with or ignores private ownership, its proper assignment, and the rights associated with it, it becomes corporatism

    Capitalism does not have the force of the government to maintain it's power. It only has the market place.

    We have the highest corporate tax rate in the world. Except for the particular enterprises that are allowed all the loop holes. We pay more to the government and get nothing in return for it. That's because by the L & R tug of war and the politicians all too eager to cash in on it and create a further mess by pretending to play both sides. We have way too many people for a centralized government and socialized medicine would be the nail in the coffin for this country.

    I disagree. That is precisely the reason why FEMA camps are formed and we had tanks and men with assault rifles roaming the street. A militia should act against enemies to the constitution or those who have committed an act of war, not as a police force. When the military gets involved in policing action, that's when tyranny begins.

    If FEMA were an effective organization, it could do it without guns. Unfortunately it can't since government can't do anything without aiming a gun at people

    The reason health benefits and health care costs are so high are because of the 3rd party payer, such as employment. That and the governments regulations and control. To expect that an employer should have to pay for health insurance is not going to solve the problem. Neither is socialized medicine. It's just going to make it worse.

    Yes, and even then I wonder how efficient they are with construction and maintenance, 'cause locally it seems every time they work on a major road it takes forever, and in some cases the design is so fucking stupid it makes me scratch my head.
