    Tragic and heart-breaking...

    http://gawker.com/5840024/ron-pauls-campaign-manager-died-of-pneumonia-penniless-and-uninsured

    A few select lines from the article:

    "Should the state pay his bills? Paul responded, "That's what freedom is all about: taking your own risks. This whole idea that you have to take care of everybody—""

    But we all know oil companies and hedge fund managers and Wall Street bankers NEED their tax cuts or they might just DIE.

    "So Blitzer pressed on, asking if he meant that "society should just let him die," which earned a chilling round of approving hoots from the crowd"

    I mean if he was SUPPOSED to have insurance, Jesus would give it to him, right?

    "When he died on June 26, 2008, two weeks after Paul withdrew his first bid for the presidency, his hospital costs amounted to $400,000. The bill was handed to Snyder's surviving mother "

    Happy Hump Day, for what it's worth...

    "Like so many in our movement, Kent sacrificed much for the cause of liberty. Kent poured every ounce of his being into our fight for freedom. He will always hold a place in my heart and in the hearts of my family." Ron Paul


    Cept they forgot to add:


    "but I'm not about to help him, tough shit, I got mine!"

    TropicalMark, you should link this topic to your topic yesterday with the vid in it.

    At the moment, this Ron Paul fellow is making my skin crawl.

    Thanks for posting this and connecting the dots, guy!

    So the hell with you I've got mine attitude of Ron Paul really shows when his former campaign manager dies at 26 of a 'preexisting condition'. Makes George Bush sound like a compassionate conservative.

    Wish all these so-called Libertarians would go get their rifle and go live in the woods. THEN I'd have respect for them 'cause they wouldn't be using any taxpayer services: air traffic controllers who help land his plane, ambulance that takes him to ER, schools for his kids, roads for his wife to drive on, books for the library, etc. Just remember, Robert Redford's character Jeremiah Johnson was only a movie. And your life expectancy? Well, let's just say when you die alone in the woods living your Libertarian life, you will be remembered for the "cause of liberty" and "fight for freedom".

    In your dreams.

    Sorry: mixed-up the day Kent Snyder died June 26, 2008 with his age. He was 49-years-old.

    A perfect example of the Repub party's health care priorities.
