In the wake of Hurricane Irene battering the East Coast, two senators of dramatically different ideologies, Sen. Ron Paul, a libertarian Republican from Texas, and Sen. Bernie Sanders, a far-left Socialist from Vermont, made bold statements regarding the effectiveness and existence of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
Before Irene even hit, Paul was airing his frustration with FEMA, which is a federal bureaucracy created to respond to national disasters.
Hello everyone; it's good to still be with you. I live in Southeastern PA. I would like to tell you all of my experience.

It's rumored that the status quo party people and the media aren't as worried about Hurricane Irene as they are about Hurricane Paul. The media's actually a bit relieved that they have something to take the intense heat off their backs for their blatantly inept and intentional bumbling of lack of coverage of Ron Paul's increasingly powerful storm center and expanding tropical winds.

GILFORD, N.H. -- After a lunch speech today, Ron Paul slammed the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, and said that no national response to Hurricane Irene is necessary.
When the leftist CNN itself publishes such an opinion on their front page... you know the Dr. opinions are spreading.
Yes, we should not pay for their re-building or provide them with insurance. If it is too dangerous, then they get cheaper land and pay for higher insurance... Free market solution.
Get the Fed out of selecting where people should build their houses and out of price fixing.
With all the camera crews in the east coast covering the hurricane I imagine a sign wave on the beach would get some coverage......
Today is a brilliant, still, early autum day. The calm before the storm. Best of luck to everyone.
