Last week I was hospitalized and went through hell. I haven't been around to know anything about what was going on here at the dailypaul or in the liberty movement. Anyway I have no insurance and the only way for me to pay for my medications and treatment was to apply for medicaid ... that's what the hospital told me.
I was diagnosed with a disease of unknown cause and unknown cure called IBD or Ulcerative Colitis. I'm only 21, which is depressing. I've been really shaken up as this will involve massive lifestyle changes and my standard of living.
This all got me thinking. I hold the paleoconservative/libertarian position on healthcare and still have, however, this got me thinking that no wonder the other side fights so fervently about this. There are people such as myself that simply cannot live. You are attacking their existence.
I would like hear certain such comments from my fellow DPers regarding the issue. I would love to know if I did anything so that I can stop doing whatever I did or make sure I never do it again. But the disease remains elusive. What do we do with these people?
My position has always been that socialism is evil, but if people want to voluntarily form groups, they should be allowed to pool their healthcare or savings together. The primary point being that no one is forced into a system.
I'm in a very down mood lately. You never think you can just wake up one day with something like this having been normal for your entire life before. Please tell me your thoughts.

With the dust almost settled on the 2010 midterm elections, the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum in Simi Valley, Calif., wasted no time with its announcement Thursday that it will host the first GOP primary debate in spring 2011 -- which is just a few months away -- to be moderated by NBC and Politico. From the announcement:
Former First Lady Nancy Reagan today announced plans to invite all of the leading contenders for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination to two debates at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum. The Reagan Presidential Foundation plans to play host to both the first GOP presidential debate of the 2012 election cycle in spring 2011 and a second GOP debate on the eve of the Super Tuesday primaries.
Another great video created on the bases of Ron Paul's speech:
I was in Walmart yesterday, and, as usual, I was mumbling about how we need to stock up on food, when a person actually started talking to me. It seems that a prominent eye doctor (!) in town has been running survival classes at his house for a year or more.
This woman told me that he and some friends have taught her how to can, garden, shoot, make their own bullets, and much more! AND quite a few people are involved! (I of course am going to check it out).
On top of THAT, when I called the water departent about fracking, the manager of the place told me someone had already given her a dvd called "Gasland." I told her to watch it, and got the giver's name, and turns out he has a dvd burning machine and gives out free dvd's on all sorts of stuff to lots of people! He has that, and "What in the World Are They Spraying" and a bunch of others! This is A small town of 6500 people, and I had no idea all this was going on, as I had seemed to be the only RP supporter here, in 2008.
If all this is going on here, just think how much is somewhere going on in YOUR town? Just think how much we should all find each other and get together!

Boston is on the list. I haven't flown in a couple of years, but I've got a trip planned in the spring. Eventually, we're all going to have to make a very personal choice. No hiding.
Dylan's lyrics come to mind:
Praise be to Nero’s Neptune
The Titanic sails at dawn
And everybody’s shouting
"Which Side Are You On?"
I first heard the song Desolation Row 20 years ago. Today, entirely new depths of meaning emerge from those lyrics.
Save the date, mark the calendar and spread the word.
November 24th is the day ordinary citizens stand up for their rights, stand up for liberty, and protest the federal government's desire to virtually strip us naked or submit to an "enhanced pat down" that touches people's breasts and genitals. You should never have to explain to your children, "Remember that no stranger can touch or see your private area, unless it's a government employee, then it's OK."
The goal of National Opt Out Day is to send a message to our lawmakers that we demand change. No naked body scanners, no government-approved groping. We have a right to privacy and buying a plane ticket should not mean that we're guilty until proven innocent. This day is needed because many people do not understand what they consent to when choosing to fly.

The foreclosure lawyers down in Jacksonville had warned me, but I was skeptical. They told me the state of Florida had created a special super-high-speed housing court with a specific mandate to rubber-stamp the legally dicey foreclosures by corporate mortgage pushers like Deutsche Bank and JP Morgan Chase. This "rocket docket," as it is called in town, is presided over by retired judges who seem to have no clue about the insanely complex financial instruments they are ruling on — securitized mortgages and labyrinthine derivative deals of a type that didn't even exist when most of them were active members of the bench. Their stated mission isn't to decide right and wrong, but to clear cases and blast human beings out of their homes with ultimate velocity. They certainly have no incentive to penetrate the profound criminal mysteries of the great American mortgage bubble of the 2000s, perhaps the most complex Ponzi scheme in human history — an epic mountain range of corporate fraud in which Wall Street megabanks conspired first to collect huge numbers of subprime mortgages, then to unload them on unsuspecting third parties like pensions, trade unions and insurance companies (and, ultimately, you and me, as taxpayers) in the guise of AAA-rated investments. Selling lead as gold, shit as Chanel No. 5, was the essence of the booming international fraud scheme that created most all of these now-failing home mortgages.

The world's top economies take centre stage tomorrow in South Korea when the G20 summit kicks off. A major issue due to spark debate in Seoul is a battle over currencies. President Obama is expected to face tough questions over the U.S. decision to pump 600 billion freshly-printed dollars into its economy. The move is an attempt to revive the country's finances, but will result in the devaluation of the dollar. On the impact of the Federal Reserve's decision RT talks to Stephen Lewis, who's chief economist at the broker, Monument Securities.
