ABORTION! WOO-HOO!

(My favorite part of the show came later with Al Gore - "My character? What do you mean?")

I'll have to watch the whole thing. I haven't seen it.

This totally disgusted me. How callous. And this from the party that claimed Obamacare would create "Death Panels."

It's amazing how cold people can be when it's not someone they know. It's everyone for themselves and only the fittest should survive - unless it's their mother or something. ;P

As a proponent of evolutionary biology and psychology, I can rationalize the response. Deep down, that thirty-something is mate competition and so of course the unrelated stranger who has no blood tie should be left to die because the likelihood that unrelated stranger would help you in similar circumstances is very small. I can guarantee, however, that if the question had detailed a pregnant twenty-something female instead of a male thirty-something the audience would not have reacted that way. I have to applaud Ron Paul's answer, even if I don't agree with the rest of his politics. I have never met someone who chooses to be destitute.

I do not agree with Ron Paul's answer of throwing the uninsured to the Churches. The idea that Christians could take up the slack if the government completely abandoned health care is false. They are incapable of doing it financially, and many are incapable of doing it without judgment or wanting some sort of conformity in return.

I meant that he didn't give in to the audience and say 'Yeah, sure! One less idiot!'
