I have noticed Ron Paul appearing on MSM much more than in 2008. Even Cavuto was speaking praises on air this week. This may be the “dark horse” year in America. I speak with others daily about our Liberties, Police State issues, Ron Paul, the importance of SILVER, the looting of America…and usually get positive responses. I am finding that most even know that the FED is operating illegally and unconstitutionally. Dr Paul’s views ARE mainstream America. My article last week –HR 2438-American Traveler Dignity Act of 2011 shows just how simple our laws can and should be. Scrutinizing and minimizing government is a MUST. Even then, we have years of getting a grip on our country. The dollar IS tanked. Employment IS tanked. Support your local an regional entrepreneurial businesses…NOT GLOBAL!! If you aren’t all-in for RON PAUL in 2012, you wouldn’t be reading this.
There’s no certainty, only opportunity!

(CNN) – As Hurricane Irene barrels along the U.S. East Coast, Rep. Ron Paul of Texas said the nation would be much better off without the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
“I live on the Gulf Coast. We put up with hurricanes all the time,” the GOP presidential candidate told CNN after a New Hampshire campaign event Friday. “There’s no magic about FEMA. More and more people are starting to recognize that.”
Paul has long been a critic of the agency, which he calls a “great contributor to deficit financing.”
- Dr Paul feels that the US does not need FEMA
With more than 7,600 employees, FEMA falls under the Department of Homeland Security and coordinates response efforts when disasters strike.
Citing the Galveston hurricane in 1900 that obliterated much of the Texas coast, the libertarian-leaning congressman said Americans were able to rebuild their cities and put up a seawall without the federal government’s help.
“FEMA is not a good friend of most people in Texas,” Paul said. “All they do is come in and tell you what to do and can’t do. You can’t get in your houses. And they hinder the local people, and they hinder volunteers from going in.”
After Hurricane Ike demolished parts of the Texas coast in 2008, Paul voted against a bill that would funnel billions in aid to the area, which covers his congressional district.
FEMA has since pumped more than $3 billion in federal funds into the state.
The agency received wide criticism in 2005 for failing to respond in a timely, organized manner to the vast destruction wrought by Hurricane Katrina.
