    I sure would like to see Ron Paul go to Dallas, TX tomorrow and tell those tornado victims:

    "Don't take any federal money! Your churches and neighboring cities will help you out!"

    I bet you that'll be the first time in his political career that Paul wished for a better gun control law! :lol:

    You don't think those neighboring towns and churches are going to help out at all? You've got a really grim view of your fellow man.

    Where have you been living all your life while the rest of this country has repeatedly pulled together during times of crises from the local level to the national level, to help fellow citizens out?

    After 9/11, people pulled together and raised BILLIONS.

    Except, of course, when that fellow man happens to be a socialist politician or bureaucrat....Then they're all complete angels.

    Nice try at distortion, Paulie, but you fail miserably.

    Did I say ANYTHING to allude to my being against towns and chruches helping out?

    Nope!

    Are YOU stating that 9/11 assistance was WITHOUT federal assistance on all levels? Billions? I'd like to see that documentation.

    Sorry to burst your libertarian bubble, but given the various bad season hurricanes, tornados, droughts, floods, etc., etc.... only a delusional fool would think that there is no need for federal assistance. Like I said, go tell it to the Texans in Dallas.

    Here's what I told your buddy Paulie:

    Nope!

    Are YOU stating that 9/11 assistance was WITHOUT federal assistance on all levels? Billions? I'd like to see that documentation.

    And PLEASE get a near by adult to explain what socialism is to you, my Odd little man....because the idea of sharing community resources across city & state lines in the same country is a socialist ideal....about time you libertarian lunkheads got that.

    But do please go to Dallas, TX and try and sell them Ron Paul's idealism....I suggest you do that from a fast moving truck. :badgrin:

    Yep I think you are correct I just did some googling.

    So the government is doing it?
    Liberty bond sales were mentioned as were insurance settlements.
