Just Donated

It wasn't much, but I think that's the power of liberty has always come thru because a lot of people doing a small part equals great things. Please bump, this deserves a lot of attention. I was gonna post on my Facebook but I didn't want my non liberty friends to think I'm politicizing tragedy. Thanks again for the share.

I Don't Do Facebook

Is there an alternate way to donate by credit card?

You don't need facebook

I don't do Facebook either (in fact, my browser blocks Facebook cookies). The donation page at Facebook has a link to Paypal. You don't need a Facbook account or Facebook cookies to click on the link:


Or you can try the Paypal link directly:

Folks, I hope you will donate. PLEASE READ THIS

I did a quick search for the Lorang family. They were living in a trailer park and refusing any public assistance on the principle that it is immoral. This is a family that is truly needy. This is a time for us to practice what we preach in terms of the libertarian philosphy of private charity over government subsidy.

I came across this post by Hosanna's father 9 months ago. He was writing in response to the question of whether we should accept money from the government since it was ours to begin with (original post here: http://tenthamendmentcenter.com/2011/10/13/the-enemy-of-my-e...):

I can tell u my story: after coming down with mono five years ago while delivering chips for Frito Lay, my family went on food stamps. A couple years later, my wife went back to school. Last year, I made about $5000, recieved that much in gifts from friends and family, but lived as though we made over $30,000! When I added up all the gov't assistance (including financial aid), I was horrified! We have accepted this philosophy that the state needs to pick up the slack in order to maintain a lifestyle that is disallusional.

Since then, we have cut up our food card, refused financial assistance, rejected health insurance (which is just a scam btw), and moved into a trailer park. Why? Because I have the right to live according to my means, and whatever wealth I accumulate should be my own. I say this only to point out how drastic it may be to do as you suggest (though I believe it's the only real way to stop the spending spree in it's tracks).

Farmers need to do the same thing. Subsidies are killing our industry. It's encouraging ppl not to become intuitive and inventive for new product and markets. The proplem is, they would suffer immensely. But.... that's what it would take, and we have to be willing to live far below our means in order to build our wealth with our own two hands. My take on it. ;)

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

Thanks for this context Matt; I just tried

to donate with 2 different c.c.s that I know are valid but were not accepted by PayPal. I hate the difficulty of online payments.

It's so sad. Such a young

It's so sad. Such a young girl. It breaks my heart.

Please keep us posted

I'm confident that the Paul supporters will take care of each other, but I'd love to know how the donation fund turns out. I donated. My youngest daughter is not much older than Hosanna, and I can't image what the family is going through.

"Sorry it's been a while since you have had any updates, I've been out of town. Just wanted you all to know that we are now at $12,000! We have had donations from all over the US! Please keep talking about Hosanna and her family and spreading the word! Lets see how much we can give them!"

My biggest fear as a father is to lose a child

I will help....although its never enough to ease the pain.

For Freedom!
The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.

I lost my daughter,

I lost my daughter, Antoinette.
~God can do amazing, often unexpected things. And He did it for me when I least expected it. He took my pain away. He showed me (not what I think or thought) what He was doing and why He was doing it. He showed me what her purpose was in her short life. And He assured me that she is in a place of unimaginable beauty.

Donation Link

The link to donate is at the bottom of the video on YouTube website not the Daily Paul, just in case you were looking.

I see no link as the video says.

Also, when and where did this happen?

I live in WA state and want to help, but am curious about a few more details.

Yes I did realize that after

Yes I did realize that after I was corrected by someone on YT. I read the article incorrect but the end result is the same. I apologize for the mistake and thank you for correcting me.


My thoughts and prayers go out to them.

A parent should never have to outlive their children, and children should never have to grow up with the pain of losing a sibling.

This is a tragedy indeed.
