Ron Paul Calls FEMA Useless

Ron Paul was on Fox News Sunday this morning and backed up his claim that we should get rid of FEMA. “It’s a system of bureaucratic central economic planning, which is a fallacy that is deeply flawed. FEMA has been around since 1978. It has one of the worst reputations for a bureaucracy ever,” Paul said. “I want to transition out of this dependency on the federal government.” Mike Wallace called Paul’s views “somewhat unconventional,” and Paul considered that strange. Paul said, “yes, people are waking up and they’re saying ‘Yeah, Ron Paul’s right. Why are we fighting all these undeclared wars? Why do we have a Federal Reserve that bails out the rich and dumps on the poor? And why is it that deficits don’t really matter and politicians just stand around and talk that they’re going to nibble away at a budget deficit that is 10 years out.’ So, no, this is a very popular philosophy.”
