    To "Pagan | 12:55 p.m. " again, with blunders like that, why would you give them more power and control.

    Actually there are people and communities who do fine with limited government during a natural disaster. Just look at Bountiful and Centerville when the trees were all blown over. Few people waited for the government to take care of things, the people just went out and started to cut.

    Look at the response of Texas to Hurricaine Rita, just after Katrina. Limited government response, and we didn't have nearly the problems.

    Show us where a big government response to something outside of war, has actually worked well.

    You tell me Redshirt/1702.

    For a party that claims to want 'limited goverment'...

    they were the first ones that bailed out Wall Street...

    and the Auto Industry.

    Kinda like:

    'There are no atheist's in a foxhole.'

    There are no persons who want 'limited goverment' during a natural disaster.'

    What the government gives it can take away.

    Remind me again why we want them to have more control over our lives, and especially our healthcare?
