This thread shows the limitations of human psychology; It's inability to think more than one step ahead. It's the reason the world is rife with rotting socialism. Look at the bigger picture, and you'll find that what Ron Paul wants to do is in fact, more beneficial to society than anything.

Especially health insurance. How is an 18 year old supposed to afford to go to the doctor when their chances of getting a job that provides insurance is incredibly slim?

You must hate people so much that you'd say a thing.
I said he is ignoring it. Not caring about the reality of the poor.
Go ahead and "crush me" tough guy. Take your best shot before I dispose of you and your ignorance.

I think ron paul is right if u wanna live there get insurance or move away and stop being a moron and have ur trailer home swept up by a tornado.
u already live in a trailer might as well just drive it somewhere safer
The caliber of stupidity that society portrays is just ridiculous
Especially from these 400 LBS.+ sheeple americans, theres ppl starving in africa and yet the americans are dying of obesity.... Problem, nooooo well just call it a epidemic
That's because you don't understand the position. The federal government works for Israel. The states work for the people. That is why foreign aid is dealt with more efficiently, where domestic aid takes forever (like Katrina and Joplin). If the states kept the money to bank role for these disasters, there would be little reliance on the ZOG (Zionist Occupied Government), who couldn't care less for the people from whom they take their money.

I saw and heard him on "Candy Crowlely, State of the Union" on CNN this morning.
This is *exactly* what he said. There should be no funds for states who have had a catastrophe. Even.. "They have their own National Guards".
I disagree strongly with that position. Good lord, what would have happened during Katrina if it hadn't been for federal intervention?
You guys go ahead, just don't move to California, Florida, Texas, Louisiana or anywhere else prone to disasters, and the way things have been going lately, good luck with that.edit on 3/4/2012 by BellaSabre because: (no reason given)

I have a sad feeling that you kids are going to be talking out of the other sides of your mouth when you experience a horrific disaster and the state tells you you are on your own, because they don't have any money or enough resources to take action.

Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, stood by his libertarian beliefs on Sunday, saying that victims of the violent storms and tornadoes that have battered a band of states in the South and Midwest in recent days should not be given emergency financial aid from the federal government. "There is no such thing as federal money," Paul said, on CNN’s State of the Union. "Federal money is just what they steal from the states and steal from you and me." "The people who live in tornado alley, just as I live in hurricane alley, they should have insurance," Paul said. Paul said there was a role for the National Guard to restore order and provide care and shelter in major emergencies, but that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) led to nothing but "frustration and anger.".
Wise words Ron Paul speaks. Why should we use "Federal" help when it's actually our money anyways and just another avenue our money has to travel in order to come back and help us? It's an unnecessary step including the Federal Government in something the State Government should be in full control over in the first place.
States have the SBI (State Bureau of Investigation) who does the job of the FBI on a state level, so whats wrong with State emergency management systems having the money or authority FEMA does?
The Federal Government should be a back up plan, not the first thing we run to.
