American people donating billions to Haiti while millions of Americans go hungry each night??? I don't think so!

Don't send your money to Haiti!

If you want to make a difference donate money to people living in your local tent city. That's something noble to support!

i understand that ron paul likes free markets, but give me a fucking break, the last thing these poor souls need is someone to come teach em free markey philosophy.. but he is right when he says these people dont need money, because what they really need is technology and medical aid and food and other resources, they dont need opinions, or some peice of whatever with some imaginary value like money. Money doesnt solve problems, people resources and technology solve problems!

He's got some nerve… "best thing the US can do is to help introduce sound economic policies in Haiti"? The food shortage in Haiti is due to American interference, their manipulation of tariffs, constraining Haiti to produce little and depending on imported food from the US. And the US have already set up camp in Haiti after the earthquake: military camps, even stopping planes with aid from other countries from landing to let US military planes get there fast…

that is only what i can do cry a lots of tears,because i can not help the poor people

You do understand that Ron Paul is against any and all foreign embargos, right? So all that economic pressure we put on Haiti, he probably voted against it.

so it would be best if they stopped interfering, i presume he would be in favour of that.

And I pray that tinfoil hat screwballs such as you get caught by the nice men in white coats and be locked up in the happy farm. Haiti suffered a much stronger earthquake (7.5) in 1770. But let me guess…the US also has a time machine and travelled back to 1770 to cause that earthquake?

The Haiti Earthquake was not natural and we now have the the proof. Admiral Mark H. Buzby of The United State Navy is now on record saying that the earthquake weapon does exist. The last time it was used in 1979 against Yugoslavia causing a 7.2 earthquake. The United States Navy is on record admitting we have the weapon and the governement Patents to prove it. But Fox news is running reports that we don't have the weapon when we own the Patents. The American People Stand With Hugo Chavez

Man, you are so full of shit it's oozing out of your eye sockets! I googled for Admiral Mark H. Buzby, HAARP and earthquake weapon and found nothing even remotely close to a documented statement from that guy. All I found were some of your fellow conspiracy nutballs repeating the same bullshit on different youtube videos. So what is your source and where's the record of such statement other than inside your head?

I can't believe I took your whackjob comment serious enough to google it.

If you live in the US you don't get real news mate. What part is made up the fact the US owns patents on the devices that can cause natural disasters. Or what about the fact they drilled a 3,000 foot hole in Nevada to see if they can cause a earthquake that public record. Admiral Mark Buzby is real and he has no reason to lie. So go watch your Fox new take your H1n1 shots eat your GMO foods and be brain dead. I like my tin foil hat

richard1972r

Reading comprehension is not your best skill, is it? I didn't say that admiral wasn't real or that he's lying. I said I can't find ANYTHING about his statement regarding this earthquake weapon. And don't give me the bullshit of US controlling the news because I'm using the WORLD WIDE WEB. Even the US doesn't control world wide information sources. You were able to find it, did you not? So where's your source?
Devices that can cause natural disasters? Lol, I think you've played Simcity a lot.

And I hope this time you can give me a credible source for your BS. It takes more than just saying "It is so!" to make rational people believe absurd bullshit like natural disaster weapons. So until you can provide that, you go watch X-Files and keep searching UFO's.

correct, but we need not only talk about it, you need to start. Ron Paul is just talking. nothing concrete

@wnxsilence Google USSR and Eastern Europe.

Also: Communism has slaughtered more people than capitalism. It actually makes sense: in capitalism, capitalism dies for you. In Communism, you die for Communism. Fuck communism.

btw
Ron Paul got 20,000 write in votes
Now a Rasmmuseen Poll
Obama 42% Ron Paul 41% President 2012
A Republican will definitely win the next election. He has more of a chance than ever.

I agree with Mr Paul. You can't just throw money at Haiti to solve it's probelms. Sure, it makes us feel better to at least ease the suffering of a people, but what's the point if they have a high chance of facing the same kind of crisis. Capitalism and free markets is the only way to achieve peace and prosperity. This world isn't Kumbaya and people are greedy. We must channel the greed to our advantage, but also prevent the beast of greed from growing to big.

Sad part is Canadians donated million upon millions and our government said they would match but what they did not tell us is that our Government held onto are donations in a bank account and collected interest to pay there share of our interest will Haitian starved

@EvilKnarvel i definitely see your point. However, i think the problem is differentiating between the general populace and the government of America. I'm not even going to try to get into who does what and to what extent, just wish more people would look deeper than the top layer of things to see where the separations are.

Your billions in donations all went to a cackling Baron Samedi who gave it all to Maman Brigitte. Actual Haitians got zero.

Ron Paul makes so much sense, he'll never be president. Americans have no interest in reality, they want a blank slate like Obama who can mirror their fantasies & projections.

@EvilKnarvel give me a break already, even the fellow American citizens know that the govenment only does it for name and more power, the U.S only gives billions to nations so they would submit to the NWO which has already been announced by your president back in September 11,1991. Wake up buddy its about time you take that blind fold off, and actually come reality, and stop believing what the news has to say because they are all under control of the elite.

Abdul Hai

@GovernmentSham912 never going to happen, why because obviously Ron isnt going to listen to the elite. Obama is just a puppet, why do you think a black president was picked, he was probably the biggest achievment the elite have gotten to get the world to submit to the NWO all because he was BLACK (people now think he's actually doing something for the nation, when he's actually not) if the collapse of the economy isnt coming in the few years, msg me and i will jump off my house.

@sk1ller11 I love how you foreigners think you have the United States all figured out. Much of our foreign policy stems from the "Monroe Doctorine". In the early 1820's the U.S. was concerned with rumors that Spain was going to attempt to colonize South America. James Monroe, the President at the time, set forth the doctorine that dictated that the United States would regard any interference in Western hemispheric affairs as a threat to its security.This is the reason for our global involement.

@ekamau20 your right

EvilKnarvel

@ekamau20 How are we "fleecing" the people of Haiti? How could donating millions of dollars to the people of Haiti be to our advantage? What are we getting in return? You are a paranoid conspiracy theorist. Maybe the U.S. is involved in a plot to take over the world with an alien race. Keep that tinfoil helmet close.

@fallenempireoverdrve The people are what makes up America. We are a piece loving people despite what your media may say. The majority of us would give the shirt off our backs to help another in need. Every country has it's "bad apples". Our attempts to help others throughout the world are sincere. Don't be so naive as to label an entire people as "evil".

Holy Moley ! Haiti is the most hated country in the history of earth. Go back to the world based on imperialism and slavery. All the top countries did this. Along comes Haiti at the peak of colonialism and throughs a big wrench into the whole power system. As the dominos start to fall Haiti becomes the #1 target for revenges and retribution. Still going on. Yesterday on MSNBC : Cholera brought to Haiti by UN workers. ::

@EvilKnarvel Your heart is in the right place. But the facts is the USA has only had 3-5 years of peace from our start. I also love american people and the American dream . Plotting out our actions over history shows clear evil policies . Take Haiti. Embargoes, occupation coup's more embargoes. Kinda miserable when it is added up.

@ekamau20 On the other hand… Dr Paul have never supported those things.
