Solid interview. Good questions, Good answers.

Kudlow likes Ron Paul on economic, big government issues.

I agree - I thought it was great! I like it when Ron gets to

talk a lot about FEMA -

Debbie

Pat Tillman would have voted for Ron Paul

The campaign should reach out to his family that this is a once in a lifetime chance to bring change to this world and make a paradigm shift in consciousness. If Ron is not elected, we are going to be Children of Men.

At least this one

gave the "Big Government backers" something to chew on. They showed the Congressional committees Dr. Paul sits on. That'll give him some credibility with those who think government knows what it's doing. They'll think,"The Chairman of the sub-committee on Finance says FEMA's in over their heads and wasting our money?" It gave his words more weight.

I'll give as much respect to my elected officials as they give to the Constitution!

why is it you see these guys

why is it you see these guys like crudlow and the others always coming to Paul to get straightened out on these matters? why are Perry and that idiot Romney never in these types of interviews?

Imagine Cudlow Interviewing Perry ,Romney and Bachmann :

Mitt Romney : "I love America. America deserve better."

Rick Perry : "I was told that them Gardasil shots were safe."

Michele Bachmann : "Barack Obama is a one term president!!"

Sounds about right to me...Not!

Haha! Right on!!

I know Paul's positions on

I know Paul's positions on FEMA and I agree with them, BUT this explanation regarding NYC, NJ etc was not a good one. I.e that they build houses in dangerous places. Those areas are not really prone to hurricanes. Not a good example and people will call him out on that.

I know, give me thumbs down...

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Brian, this wasn't one of Dr. Paul's better days..

He was fabulous on FowNews Sunday w / Chris Wall A$$

More people would have seen the interview if it wasn't for all the news coverage on Tropical Storm Irene..

Leave it to a woman to ruin things..Just kidding ladies!

I agree, the fox news was

I agree, the fox news was much better. He seemed a bit tired today.. Cant blame him.. Even on Anderson he seemed a bit tired..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

I thought Kudlow did a good interview and Ron did fantastic!!

I think his example of people building in dangerous places was just one example. I don't think he meant it was across the boards the only problem with FEMA, but one of many - he says the whole system is not good. They are unconstitutional and generally prevent those who want to help from helping, or even from defending their own property! He gave other examples as well.

Debbie

its not just NJ or NY, its

its not just NJ or NY, its low lying areas in those places that should not be built on.

While I agree with you that his position is

correct, I also agree with you that his examples in this case were not fully up-to-date. Hurricane Katrina was a perfect example of his point. the recent hurricane and flooding does not neatly fit into federal encouragement of risk-taking he mentions. With extreme weather happening more often, he must update his examples.
Of course both his economics and point about the National Guard are right on. It is hard to make the perfect answer in short time slots, but I hope his staff is watching out for gaps that they can help him to fill in in all future interviews.
Hey, and good for you to boldly and constructively criticize where it may do some good : )

Just the opposite, Brian

This is an excellent example of the distortion created by FEMA. This is not a high risk area as much as a high cost area. This is exactly what free market, indemnified, real insurance is for, measuring risk. Without FEMA this area and many more could be covered in an insurance pool with other areas around the State and nation with similar risk. Instead it is stuck with a one size fits all federal approach.

In a private free market insurance pool the inspectors are far more qualified and motivated, as well as the management of the insurance pool. FEMA has no capital pool, just a place in line to the Feds window.

Lastly, would more damage have been prevented in say New Jersey if the Guardsmen native to the State were protecting their homes as opposed to the border between two billygoat ranches ?

I would welcome the naysayers on this one......

First, thanks for the thumbs

First, thanks for the thumbs down.

Second, I am not sure you got my point. I was referring to Paul's response that New Jersey and NY are high risk areas that FEMA provides insurance for. They are not. I just think it was a poor example. That's all.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

I think you have it confused...

...as I got it confused when I first heard him say it.

But he was referring to the National Flood Insurance Program which is a nightmare of an insurance plan. As a former Ins. Agent, I can confirm that unless you specifically have a flood policy, you are not insured against flood losses. And there is only one place to get flood insurance. Care to guess where?

?

I dont do thumbs.....can barely post without double tapping.

Exactly, Brian, this should not be covered with federal ponzi schemes, it should be covered by State run insurance.

If State A wants to use taxpayers future earnings to insure bad risk, let em. If State B wants to pool with other States, let em.

Paul does not argue against government management of emergencies. He argues against Federal dominance.

Just the opposite, Brian

Ron Paul Interview On The Kudlow Report

Michael Nystrom's picture

Thank you

for your invaluable contributions to the cause of Liberty.

He's the man.

I have NO COMPLAINTS on this interview.

Kudlow asked about FEMA because this is the "talking point" distributed to all the networks. The powers that be are attempting to do a character assasination, if Dr. Paul's popularity surges....

And, it will....

I spoke to a liberal today who said she wasn't going to vote because they are "all alike". I told her at least Ron Paul would bring our boys home. She stopped and thought about that one---and NO argument.

The HURRICANE HYPE was, imho, there to pump up FEMA. Did anyone see the office that CNBC zoomed in on behind them. There had to be at least 15 government FEMA workers there sitting behind their computers---no doubt tuning into the Weather Channel. LOL

And, by the way, LITERALLY EVERYONE on the Internet & Radio & Talk Shows are talking about this fake hurricane hype.

He Looked Good

& spoke well and concise.

But they showed him in the Capitol rotunda first, then interviewed in his office ?

lies

When will they ever stop the misrepresentation.

-quiet engineer

Amend

Amend to that ahahha

Still waiting......
