Ron Paul: You think Hurricane Irene was bad? Wait till you experience FEMA (Doug Wead)

Governor Dan Malloy of Connecticut called presidential candidate Ron Paul an idiot last Thursday. He was answering a loaded question on CNN, responding to Congressman Paul’s concern about a bankrupted FEMA. This government agency, founded in 1978, now doles out money to victims of natural disasters. Of course, Malloy is salivating over that well earned money coming his way. His insult to Congressman Paul must reflect the high anxiety involved. It must be very stressful to have this whole notion questioned, right when you’ve won the lottery.

Privately, Ron Paul staffers tell the story of a constituent who called his office asking for relief from FEMA. It seems they had draped his house with a tarp. They thought it had a leaky roof. It turned out that FEMA had made a mistake. The damaged roof belonged to a neighbor’s house. The constituent had called FEMA, asking for permission to transfer the tarp to the other home. “No way,” an official from FEMA ordered, “If you touch that tarp you will be arrested.”

Huh? Congressman Paul’s constituent was a bit perplexed. Had he lost his house? Was it now the government’s house?

A government big enough to give you everything is also large enough to take everything away.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

That surely applies here
