The Real RP Answer to Wolf Blitzer’s “Gotcha” Question on Health Ins. in Debate

The Real Ron Paul Answer to Wolf Blitzer’s “Gotcha” Question on Health Insurance:

BLITZER: But Congressman, are you saying that society should just let him die?


PAUL: No. I practiced medicine before we had Medicaid, in the early 1960s, when I got out of medical school. I practiced at Santa Rosa Hospital in San Antonio , and the churches took care of them. We never turned anybody away from the hospitals.

Ron Paul Takes Command of Debate Crowds

Ron Paul can further set himself apart from the pack by responding to the debate crowd shout outs.

1. "Yes, let him die".
* Response: That's not what my presidency is about. If you were that 30 year old you would be able to afford your health care because it would be far less expensive and you would be far wealthier without the burden of personal income taxes. That's what the Ron Paul presidency would look like.

2. "Death penalty cheers"

Normally, a hypothetical question should not be answered, but in this case it revealed something about the questioner and sparked a controversial, but necessary answer from Rep. Ron Paul.

My very first post

Greeting my fellow Ron Paul Supporters.

After reading this forum for many years, I am very excited to finally share my thoughts and join the discussions with my brothers and sisters in liberty..

Let me start with making few important points.

1. National polls. Based on the latest national polls, RP is in third place with about 10% of the vote, behind Perry who has about 30% and Romney with about 20%. We shouldn't pay much attention to these numbers and here is why
A. Going into Iowa straw polls, RP was

Why Can't We Talk About All Our Wars?

Why can't we talk about all our wars?

"It's been 10 years since Sept. 11 and many Americans still haven't had a serious conversation about why we might have been attacked and why we're fighting a war on multiple fronts. In fact, the single line of reasoning that "the enemy hates our freedom" is still trumpeted throughout the nation."

"Ron Paul Wasn't Joking About Letting Uninsured People Die"

Here's an absurd article, pretty much insinuating that RP killed his former staffer. What say you?

Question about the Tea Party and Ron Paul

I'm sorry if I'm posting a question that has been asked already but if it has I haven't been able to find it. I'm pretty new to politics in general so I'm sorry if this question is redundant. My question is: Why doesn't the tea party support Ron Paul for the presidency in 2012? This quote comes off the official Tea Party website.

Healthy 30 year old. $65 per month, $5500 deductible, 0% Coinsurance

Just got the quote for a healthy 30 year old male from ehealthinsurance.com for an Anthem Blue Cross policy.

Remember, Wolf said the man had a good job and made a good living.

All it would cost is $64.45 per month with a $5500 deductible and 0% due after the deductible is met. So $5500 out of pocket, that is it.

So.....why should we pay for this person who decides to be COMPLETELY IRRESPONSIBLE?

CNN and the "Tea Party": What's Going on Here?

While watching the “Tea Party” sponsored debate last night, I couldn’t help noticing a few corollary aspects of the debate that were either simply paradoxical or the result of obfuscated presentation.
