    Its funny how hard it is for something so simple to be understood by some people. Ayn Rand never said anything about being against “free” or volunteerism. Go watch her interviews on YouTube. Its pretty simple. You should do things because you WANT to for whatever reason is important to YOU. Not because you are forced or are afraid of being forced or because of guilt. If someone wants to donate their time because they believe in a cause or because they think they might to get to meet some movie actors then that is what they WANT and is the payment they are willing to accept for the work. Is it really so hard to understand?

    It seems most people see everything from “The system will stay corrupt like it is today and then we do what Ron Paul says and everyone dies, end of story.” If you take out the “The system will stay corrupt like it is today” part and envision a transition to a non-corrupt system where prices [...]

    Ron Paul was clear. We have a corrupt system that drives up prices that only the government and the rich can afford. If we get rid of this corrupt system prices will go down to where people can afford it again and those that cannot get get free care because a hospital or doctor will [...]

    Many of us Ron Paul supporters have pledged that we will vote FOR Ron Paul or AGAINST the GOP … for some that means third party … for others it means Obama because it will also cancel out a GOP vote… but voting for a GOP that rejected Ron Paul again is out of the question… we support Ron Paul in the first place because we have had enough of the corruption… ENOUGH!

  • You dont know why people support him because you are still playing the partisanship game.

    Partisans delude themselves or play stupid so they can stick to the party line all the time.

    Research? Right after Senator Obama voted FOR retroactive immunity for the communication companies that helped spy on all Americans, I am many many others found and researched Ron Paul… we found a video of him in 2003 calling out the NeoCons by name and spelling out their agenda… while the spineless Democrats and Progressives bent over and refused to fillabuster and even voted for everything the NeoCons wanted.

    I wonder if it makes the left feel good about deceiving their readers just like the RedStaters do?

    Those news letters were written after Ron Paul left Washington D.C. and went back to Texas to be a doctor. The newsletters Ron Paul was personally involved with were FINANCIAL news letters… you know because Ron Paul is all into monetary policy and national financial matters…

    And DONT tell any of your readers that years before those racist newsletters went out Ron Paul was one of the people in Congress that supported starting the MLK Jr. national holiday… and that Ron Paul has always praised MLK Jr. for his non violent civil disobedience…

    But I guess this is all that can be expect from people whos minds are corrupted by the corruption in Washington D.C. partisan politics.

    In a real free market system, competition beats the price of goods down to the lowest possible level. How’s that working on your cell phone bill?

    It has worked out great for me… $25 / month. When a competitor under cut my previous carrier I switched… and my quality went up. Boost Mobile to Cricket.

    This is what I mean by partisan hackery… in your case it is a fact not an attack.

    Everyone had health care… not every one had health insurance. Those are two different things.

    Mortality rates have declined because of advances in technology. Not because of the advent of the Insurance Industrial Complex.

    You experience is contradicted by others stories.

    So I just have to assume that both experiences existed because there is no way that everything was the same in all places at all times.

    As far as your point about the government coming up with advances… this is an area where government could and should do good for its people. Fund the basic research then turn that over to the people… of coarse we all know that it gets turned over to corporations today that then milk the people for all their worth when it was funded by the peoples taxes in the first places.

    When was the free market ever tried in the past 100 years?

    Never. Not once.

    We have had crony capitalism the entire time. After WWII it got promoted to be Industrial Complexes… first the military then spread to other industries.

    Free markets mean that companies and special interest groups do not get to go to government to ask for special privilages… and it also means that the government passes laws and enforces those laws to protect the people instead of the companies and special interests…

    Instead today we have corporations being considered the same thing as citizens… where it the free market again?

    Shame? What shame?

    And now you are saying that people must not learn humility? So it isnt just about health care?

    Christ I this is completely unreasonable.

    There is no need to lie. It is American history. It is there for any and all to see. Go ask YOUR grandparents. Go read any book that happens to talk about what a poor single woman did when she had to deliver a baby.

    Option #2 was reality up until Nixon… people actually had medical care back then .. it was not a fantasy… but partisan hacks like to say things like that so they dont have to question their team.

    The government was not YOU AND ME during the Bush years was it?

    The government has insulated itself into the elites. Anyone who wants to take their special privilage away like Progressives during the Bush years and Ron Paul people during the Bush years and today get attacked with every name in the book.

    Option #3 is of coarse the current day system which the Obama system is based on as well… profits 1st and hippocratic oath 2nd.

    There are two possible ways that have been presented to actually fix this problem in a way that follows the hippocratic oath.

    1) Universal Health Care (everyone gets care, but the centralized government gets the power to play games of corruption and use the money for war like they always do) … this system has been rejected by D.C.

    2) Moral Hazard + Compassion (Ron Pauls solution) This system gives no power to the centralized government and instead using the same system the Internet itself is based on – decentralization. People that can afford care pay for it, but they only pay the price that the people can afford (not what government and insurance companies can afford). Poor people are taken care of either by doctors/hospitals absorbing the cost themselves and also passing some of that cost onto charities…. this system also has been rejected by D.C.

    Option #1 has the negative of putting money and power into the hands of corrupted government that cannot be trusted.

    Option #2 has the negative of uncertainty because if you do not have FORCE of government behind something then you just have to trust the power of self organizing dynamics… which is what FREEDOM is based on.

    That is fine and all.. but I have been reading all over the Internet and all the videos on the left/progressive blogs have done the same thing and the comments from the left on many forums have them repeating this same lie that Ron Paul says “Let ‘em die!” …this didnt happen by accident.
