He also says that people should have insurance (frankly in our current society you should have insurance) to cover themselves if they live in disaster-prone areas. This is a bit of common sense.

I have read and read everything on RP thanks to this site.. I believed that he was the best hope for America and the free world.. However after looking at his policies and listening to his rhetoric, I have changed my mind..
Maybe it is a cultural thing??? Here in the UK we have a national health service and welfare that takes care of our citizens from the cradle to the grave.. Its not perfect and home growns and foreign take the piss out of the system.. However that is changing.. But... Even though a minority take the piss I still do not mind my taxes helping the health and wealth of my fellow citizens..
I INSIST that my taxes are used to help out in any emergency... After all... It could happen to me and mine too..
RP seems to be about the bottom line... MONEY...
If you are in any trouble then fk you!!
Health and disaster, you can count on RP's consistency to tell you to fk off no matter how poor you are..
Is that an America you want?????
I hope not!!
One without a social conscience but with a fk you attitude if you happen to be too poor to afford insurance...
That kind of smacks of elitism no??
Natural selection?? Or just perks for the rich??
Either way it stinks!!
RP is WORSE than Obama! At least the singer in chief has a social conscience hey??
Why would you put RP in the whitehouse if the government is just at a state level, each one just taking care of itself in a fractured and devolved un-USA???
Why would you need a whitehouse??
Or a president???
Thats just my take on it..

However, I have friends in Florida and California who pay absurd amounts of money for insurances that they are required to have for their mortgages alone which kind of bypasses your optional quote if you need a place to live.. In some cases they are paying the equivalent to $500 a month just for health insurance which is a mandatory requirement.. I know that is for mortgage holders, however it just serves as an example of the cost of living even for the semi successful who work hard, pay their way and wish to remain healthy in order to do so..
Devolved government is indeed a good thing... I personally wish to see that at the county level in the UK (regional assemblies) with a English parliament... However I would not begrudge my fellow British citizens help if they need it..

Typical b.s. from the Paulers, trying to justify a politico that would rather see americans suffer instead of receiving aid.
Of course you all would agree with this lunatic...until your life is turned to # by a natural disaster.
