This is the way that Barry can start picking up those other seven states he was talking about. Start with Haiti and move on to where? Cuba?
Dr. Paul is my hero.

I love my country
I am appalled by my government

They almost unanimously voted to "reconstruct" Haiti?

Wow, that's ambitious. They act like they have money.

The Haiti earthquake is to

The Haiti earthquake is to blame for the democrat loss in Massachusetts. The Marxist progressive liberal MSM devoted 100% of their time on fear, mayhem, destruction, and dispare and gave up their opportunity to campaign for their Marxist progressive candidate, and brainwashing the electorate into voting for their candidate.

Thank You MSM and Haiti.

Clean the House!

I Gave Money

If people feel empathy for the Hatian victims they should donate money to one of the many worthwhile charities. Politicians offer these people speaches.

Here is Dr. Paul's statement on Res 1021

http://www.house.gov/apps/list/speech/tx14_paul/Haiti.shtml

It's not what's in the title of the bill,

BILL TITLE: Expressing condolences to and solidarity with the people of Haiti in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake of January 12, 2010,

but that's just the title (who would be against that?)

It's the meat in the bill which Dr. Paul has serious reservations about, and rightly so.

Thanks for this post

The lone voice in the wilderness is, once again, correct. We (our government) have no money to reconstruct Haiti. Let the private sector do it as they are trying to do. The title of the bill is deceitful.

Why would Ron Paul vote no?

I dont see anything about money or anything else, just expressing condolences. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d111:HRes1021:/

Freedom is NOT free!

Hmmm

First we hit them with an earthquake. Then we reroute their aid planes so we can land our military. Then our military begins to occupy the country. Then we hit them with another quake. Then we decide we will rebuild their country which is now ours whether they have asked us to or not. Then we VOTE to say "I'm so sorry for all your deaths." A Government BODY maybe isn't as sincere as individual condolences. 20,000 a day die because they don't have hospitalization. Where are our hospital ships and planes? Hopefully those are there.

Well,

I may be wrong here, but I don't think this is FREE:

"...Whereas once proper surveys and assessments are conducted, the initial and crucial emergency relief response will likely move to a comprehensive mission requiring SUSTAINED ASSISTANCE from the United States and the international community for RECONSTRUCTION AND DEVELOPMENT EFFORTS..."
Of course, it could possibly mean "we" will only use "our" manpower to help rebuild, said manpower on a purely volunteer-work basis, but I don't believe that for one second...

I feel sorry for the Haitians, but let's rebuild the USA FIRST...

BAN ELECTRONIC VOTING!!

Just Checking

To confirm it was Ron Paul. But, then I realized there was no point to clicking the link. Who else would it be?

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

"How can Ron Paul be so heartless?"

I love posts like this.

Ron Paul "Sign Wave Across the USA" -- November 5th!

I wonder where are Ron's friends in Congress

he had lots of friends and he actually endorsed some of them lately!
