    No, it is only hypocritical if he voted for whatever bill or earmark that granted that to Galveston. However Ron Paul has voted “No” on each bill that is unconstitutional, and yes federal financial aid is unconstitutional. However you are welcome to show me when Ron Paul committed these hypocritical acts.

    Some of the great philosophers that have lived throughout history don’t have their ideas embraced by society until they have passed on. Ron Paul has sown some seeds that are going to grow rapidly due to the popularity he has amongst the youth of the country.

    SO smart, so ELOQUENT and strong, decisive, fair and just – oh, and so RIGHT! I can’t even tell you how mad I am that this guy wasn’t allowed to lead. WTF gives THEM the right to decide against the majority of ppl? God it’s SO obvious how right he is! No wonder he was shuffled aside – like JFK, he would have changed the world.

    Ron Paul YOU are an absolute HERO… an inspiration – you SHOULD be the model all politicians strive to emulate, sincerely. I am not even American, but I am just absolutely OUTRAGED at the blatant sabotage, the media’s participation, and the unfathomable acceptance of a president who was NOT elected fairly. I mean, I’m pretty sure elections are never really ‘fair’… but you have SUCH support, so very much that it becomes obvious that elections are all but obsolete – just a token democratic rite

    If you get elected, and don’t sell out to those offering to buy you, If you stand for the foundational individual qualities and translate them to political inspiration, If you use common sense, If you want what is good for all Americans, not just whites or blacks, not just rich or poor, If you are of good character, you are this man. Just the same, I am very glad he was never elected President. The powers that be would have killed him to stop him from causing real change.

    Ron Paul publicly stated that FEMA should go. He also voted “NAY” on several FEMA bills that would help his district after Hurricane Ike. Needless to say, the bills passed since it also included other districts.

    If Ron Paul is true to his principles (voting NAY on the FEMA bills and stating that he doesn’t need FEMA), he should have rejected the FEMA money.

    Actually Galveston has received more Federal money than most other districts. Texas has also received more Federal money than most other states.

    Ron Paul happily accepts Federal money when given to him. Yet at the same time he cries foul when Federal money is given to someone else. That is hypocritical

    When the debt is rising every day, how would that have a real benefit for the people? And if he divied that money up to every county, there would be hardly a nudge to the benefit of anyone.

    What has the greater impact in reality? And what did he do with that money that was so terrible? Taxpayer money going back to the taxpayers? You’re making him out to be two-faced without making a substantial argument.

    Exactly.

    He should put the money he received into another bill that pays down the debt.

    he has always said he will principally vote against certain things. but what is he supposed to do when he gets the aid anyway. Not spend it on the taxpayers in his district?

    Ron Paul believes that ONLY his district should receive FEMA money. All other districts can suck it…

    That is the definition of a hypocrite..

    So because Ron Paul is a libertarian, his district should suffer so that the federal government can continue to spend record amounts of money? He set an example every time he voted against a bill that expanded the government. It’s not about one person, it’s about changing the mentality of a nation that is now learning the downsides of a nanny state.

    One sentence with no way for me to access the article (i.e. web address) is not the best way to source your argument. None of your sources show Ron Paul voting for a FEMA bill. It’s not about Ron Paul winning for me, it’s about teaching others about the benefit of living within your means. No, the majority of Americans are not libertarians, although it is the fastest growing political block in recent history.

    The Galveston district, took in federal money. If Ron Paul does NOT want FEMA to help him, then he should use the money to pay down the debt.

    I still don’t understand how you could not grasp this simple logic…

    According to Ron Paul.

    1. The debt is high
    2. We should pay off the debt

    According to Ron Paul opposition
    1. The debt is high
    2. Ron Paul cares about the debt
    3. Return all Federal money from your district to pay off the debt, which would set an example for others to follow

    SImple

    So what sources should I use next time?

    Libertarian and right wing sites?

    And I gave 3 sources.
    1. Houston Chronicles
    2. Governor Malloy
    3. MotherJones

    And you claim ALL my sources came from motherjones..

    Typical deluded Ron Paul fan who believes his Ron Paul can do no evil… This is why Ron Paul can’t win. The majority of Americans can see through his lies and deception….

    Neither of those points references him voting for a FEMA bill. Like I stated before, just because you vote against the bill/act doesn’t mean you lose the right to decide how the funds are spent. Good luck with trying to prove that one of the most conservative congressmen in history is somehow the reason why the USA is digging itself into debt.

    1. After hurricane Ike devastated Paul’s district, Federal assistance money from FEMA helped rebuild the Galveston Sea Wall. Ron Paul should have returned the money but he did not…(HoustonChronicles 2013)
    2. Texas has benefited more than any other state in terms of FEMA (Connecticut Governor Malloy 2011). Ron Paul’s district

    Do you have a source for Ron Paul voting in favour of FEMA bills? Seems out of character. Are you sure he didn’t just earmark a FEMA bill that he voted against?

    Actually, Ron Paul voted against the same bills he stuffed with his own spending plans with knowing full well that the bills will pass even with his no vote.

    Furthermore, Ron Paul voted against the FEMA bills for those hurt by the hurricane, yet he voted yes for FEMA bills that helped his district after Katrina, rita, ike, etc…

    Americans need to wake up and realize there are more than 2 political parties in this country and you don’t have vote for one because the media tells you to. Get the facts and realize that we don’t need the IRS or the Fed. I “woke up” when I told my dad I was voting for Gary Johnson. He said “That’s just throwing your vote away.”. I realized at that point that of all the Americans who vote for the lesser evil will still be controlled by evil. There is only one way out and that is to wake up.
