    Ron Paul 2012 people!!! If you care for the Constitution, If you want to end federal income tax, if you want your rights back, if you want to send our troops home, if you want a defensive budget rather than a militaristic budget, if you want a President that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson would be proud of, if you want liberty, then it is time for Ron Paul.

    yes please do…but also realize that it would be HIGHLY advisable to vote for him in the case of a national election as well. Hes not a republican that way that you understand the term…its not about labels anymore. its about smelling and detecting bullshit. its about realizing who is lying and who is not. 99.999% of politicians lie. Paul does not. the end. you could say hes from the CLOWN party and id still vote for him over any other canidate every single time. Report this comment

    You are forgetting a critical detail of future events.The Yellowstone volcano that explodes in 2013 will have absolutely no effect on humanity as humans will have disappeared in December, 2012.Ron Paul may be elected, but it will be short lived because we all go within over a year from now. This has more to do with spirituality than politics. Remember Bob Marley’s immortal words: “Ain’t no use, nobody can stop them now… Don’t it seem like total destruction, only solution.”

    So sad. Because the future records that our National Guards were overseas in wars when the Yellowstone volcano exploded (late 2013,) this means that Ron Paul will not become President. I will still vote for him out of principal. I grieve for this Country and what corruption in our government has done to us. Our government has destroyed America. Sad only… mainly because the corruption and suppression of civil liberties will continue.

    Of course people insure their own belongings – but public land should be insured by the city itself. New Orleans can be a nice place to live (I guess..) but that city should appropriately determine their real risk rate of having to rebuild in case of disaster. If they didn’t allocate the necessary funds, the city dies and that’s that. But wait, now we bailed them out, and history tends to repeat itself. Choose an insurance company that has a history of determining real risk.

    would we appreciate your voting for Ron Paul? of course. I’d be a damn liar if i said or made you feel otherwise. However, just make sure you vote FOR YOUR OWN reasons. No one else on this planet can die for you and extend your life double fold until your 150 to 220 years old. No one else’s soul is in your body. YOU must deal with whatever consequences or rewards your choices create the results of. When it is your natural time to end, you’ll then have a ” completion” feeling :D

    it’s not about doing us a favor. It’s about waking up & realizing that Ron Paul is much more than 95% DIFFERENT from all the candidates ( more polishedticians. Huckelberry hound Mike included) throughout the past 40 or more years. It’s about that gut feeling that ” well shit i FINALLY have a totally different variable to test a TRULY UNIQUE way of leading our country that we haven’t had since usa’s beginning”. It’s like when you fall in love the first REAL time. (You just know)

    It should be the state not the feds that take care of disasters in states, but since we pay taxes, DC should release the money we send to them back to our state so we can help ourselves, we don’t need the “nanny state” in our lives, we can take care of ourselves, just let us have the funds back that you in DC give away to the dictators around the world!

    There are no guarenteed bailouts for these people. FEMA doesnt buy people new boats docks beach homes and other business items. they provided assistance to local until infrestructure is restored. There operations mostly include handing out water/supplies and helping displaced people. Based on your comment you assume there is no risk because of the fed govt, i can assure you your wrong.
    Insurance plans have to be bailed out so do combined pension funds.

  22. WE THE PEOPLE

    Key words that Ron Paul uttered sum up the argument-”Fema”,”history”.
    This agency has a history of being so incompetent and mismanaged that it could be eliminated tomorrow and probably wouldn’t be missed.
    Using the National Guard to take up any slack is a great idea.

    ncwdane has a great idea about medical staff on the military bases stateside.

    With the guaranteed bailouts for shipping, fishing, as you mention, of course they won’t take insurance because they have a guarantee. The smarter seller who has to raise prices 1% to cover the insurance costs would be able to long-live and sell more than ever when disasters hit because competitors go bankrupt, and knowing that the government will not bail them out will then make all of the other sellers cover their costs because they don’t want to go bankrupt and die.

    I also believe that when we are NOT in a major war
    that our military Bases shouls have a medical building on their perimiters
    open to the public since the Dr’s & Medics are all on staff anyways & getting paid w/ our money, so it would be good Practice for them & cut down on the nickle & dime visits to the DR’s that drive up health cost & insurance,
    they should even be able to handle broken bones & car accidents, same Injuries in Battle just have the entrance on the Public side of the building

    I love Paul but I have to wonder where the millions of people would move to be safe–there are areas prone to certain disasters like earthquakes, blizzards, hurricanes, tornadoes all over our nation nation–to ppl who live in areas that are prone to these disaster what do we do–where do we put them?

    Why would we need to abolish an organization tasks with responding to natural disasters. I understand it has problems, but those are fixable. I think thats the difference in rhetoric between liberals and conservatives, one sees government that can be improved upon and continue to grow, and one that see government as a inherently inadequate. Take that into consideration at the voting booth, not wether you want a beer with the guy or gal or not.

    The National Guard is busy getting their asses shot off in foreign countries. They are busy fighting for the bankers and the oil companies. In theory they should be here but our corrupt killing govt. needs all the help they can get fighting in wars as I said for the bankers and oil boys. Many many things are out of order and no one seems to notice.
