An idiot would NOT vote for Ron Paul. All the idiots are voting for Obama, Santorum, and Romney. So your question is retarded. The smart people are voting for Ron Paul, the long, shrinking minority in America. Get a clue.

You can't vote bitch. Kentucky law doesn't allow idiots to vote. They should make it law that you idiots can't breed either. Need to eliminate your gene pool to prevent further disgrace to Kentucky.

You know that Ron Paul said he doesn't think FEMA or any government agencies should come in and help the tornado victims, because they should have had insurance. He said if you live in tornado alley you should have insurance. If he was president there would have been no help for West Liberty until the insurance companies came around, and trust me they are in no hurry when something like this happens. I just wonder how he felt when the tornadoes hit Texas so hard.

So you support FEMA? You think it's right that FEMA made all Hurricane Katrina victims pay back the money they gave them in their time of need? Ron Paul stated "FEMA is not a good friend of most people in Texas," Paul said. "All they do is come in and tell you what to do and can't do. You can't get in your houses. And they hinder the local people, and they hinder volunteers from going in." Can you cite where he the things you've stated?
We don't need FEMA they need done away with. Right after Obama signed the NDAA Bill he immediately started activating the FEMA Camps across the United States. FEMA is not your friend they are your enemy.

Ron Paul: We don't need FEMA

Posted by
CNN's Ashley Killough
(CNN)- As Hurricane Irene barrels along the U.S. East Coast, Rep. Ron Paul of Texas said the nation would be much better off without the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

"I live on the Gulf Coast. We put up with hurricanes all the time," the GOP presidential candidate told CNN after a New Hampshire campaign event Friday. "There's no magic about FEMA. More and more people are starting to recognize that."

Paul has long been a critic of the agency, which he calls a "great contributor to deficit financing."

With more than 7,600 employees, FEMA falls under the Department of Homeland Security and coordinates response efforts when disasters strike.

Citing the Galveston hurricane in 1900 that obliterated much of the Texas coast, the libertarian-leaning congressman said Americans were able to rebuild their cities and put up a seawall without the federal government's help.

"FEMA is not a good friend of most people in Texas," Paul said. "All they do is come in and tell you what to do and can't do. You can't get in your houses. And they hinder the local people, and they hinder volunteers from going in."

After Hurricane Ike demolished parts of the Texas coast in 2008, Paul voted against a bill that would funnel billions in aid to the area, which covers his congressional district.

FEMA has since pumped more than $3 billion in federal funds into the state.

The agency received wide criticism in 2005 for failing to respond in a timely, organized manner to the vast destruction wrought by Hurricane Katrina.

– CNN Political Producer Rachel Streitfeld contributed to this report.

Ron Paul has a message for victims of the tornadoes that killed dozens of people in the South and Midwest: buy insurance.
“There is no such thing as federal money,” he said Sunday 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.”
The libertarian-leaning presidential candidate went on to reiterate his opposition to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and suggest the National Guard play a key role in the aftermath of natural disasters.
“To say that any accident that happens in the country, send in FEMA, send in the money, the government has all this money—it is totally out of control and it’s not efficient,” he said.

You can support him, most of my family does, but they are not the ones seeing the help that is needed. I wonder how Ron Paul would feel if he lost everything and was living in a tent, I'm sure he would want help then. You are correct he did say that FEMA gets in the way but he also said, that is what he was told, so how many people told him that? everyone has opinions.

Truth is if you valued your home you would have your property insured just as a precaution. I agree with Ron Paul. Home insurance isn't so expensive. I have my property and contents covered. The government can't rescue you every time mother nature hits. It's sad that people don't think about what could happen and take steps to insure their future. Nothing is guaranteed in life, you may buy a house today and lightening strike it and burn it to the ground. Disasters are apart of life, no ones fault and you can't prevent them but you can help yourself by purchasing insurance to help you in case you fall in such hard times. I highly doubt that Dr Paul would ask for help from the government if he lost everything. Lmao I can't even begin to conceive of that notion. Thanks for the laugh.

Since when was insurance not expensive? Did something happen yesterday for rates to decrease? I haven't seen any decreases in mine. Obviously you've never been down on your luck. I hope you never are. But, it's the mindset like yours that thinks if you can afford it, then everybody must be able to also. Way to often it takes a tragedy to smack people like you right square in the face before you understand. Things can go wrong in the blink of an eye, and blam,, you could be out of work, have a severe health issue, or any number of life changing events. If at that point you have a choice of buying insurance,,, without a paycheck coming in, or buying food for yourself, children, family, etc. You might find yourself looking at insurance prices, and how simple and easy it is to purchase a little different. And to think it's laughable to you! That does not bode well for the image of your character! But, unfortunately you are typical! Paul has little or no empathy for his fellow man, just like his son. He has lots of bucks, so everybody must have. If only life was that simple.

to be fair, hes referring to the federal shouldn't respond, cause the state should have an emergency plan to deal with it.when federal is involved that means everyone pays for that response, but the state should use the taxes already gathered by its own people to do it. example federal taxes from some ky people shouldn't be used to aid Texas. cause Texas has its own people an should be responsible enough for its self. but if the state can't then they must apply for federal aid. but having tornado insurance is important if alot of tornadoes come by, so we don't have to keep paying for people's losses, it takes away from other aids. but i understand not wanting to wait around for your home repairs. but promoting people to be responsible an think ahead really isn't that bad. insurance should be more affordable that's the problem. people need jobs, that's what we need an affordable rates of living .

also, ron paul is trying to improve america by getting us out of world affairs. we need to focus on fixing america first. an countries that are ungrateful of our help we need to stop helping them anyways. the feds been ripping us off for years, an as for no bad comments on obama.....please give me a reason to say anything good. his health care that doesn't exist? hes failed energy company we lost a lot of money on? hes achievement of shutting down Guantanamo Bay of the things he did to get the peace prize....oh wait Guantanamo Bay is still open. the loss of millions of good paying jobs? his ideas of disarming american nukes? gun control? NDAA? NDRP? both have been revised an he added a little extra to them...his recent sending of troops yet to another country without congressional consent...

Ron Paul has a few good talking points, like dealing with the fed, fixing home before other places, but other than that, he's just like his son, out of touch with reality, and hates the poor!

My insurance prices aren't high. I have my cars and property on the same policy. Really, you think they're high? I've been down on my luck more than I care to admit and that's what taught me the lesson to look out for myself. You think you know it all but you only know bullshit. I don't need you to tell me about how things are I live in the real world.

Then maybe you should jump back on your high horse, and take a little trip back to the "real" world,, and this time pay attention! And yes, insurance premiums are thru the roof, and the rest of us know it. What, are you in the insurance business or something? Maybe you don't need me to tell you anything, but that's after the fact. You've already been told! Everybody is aware of higher premiums, lower caps, higher co-pay... That wasn't even a noble attempt to hide the truth. Surely you can do better. Do you think gasoline is getting cheaper also? DUH!
