[permaculture] Ron Paul

My point in entering the conversation was that Ron Paul profoundly 
violates the Permaculture ethic of caring for people in his own 
district, a place more deadly to live in than Iraq, yet he understands 
that if China were doing to us what we did to Iraq, we would be fighting 
mad, too.  The easy compartmentalization of life outrages me.  Are 
Iraqis more understandable than the people of his home district?  How 
many cancer victims do we bury before we get fighting mad at polluters?  
Cancer is 95% environmentally caused and US citizens do not have the 
power to be genuinely responsible for cleaning up the environment and it 
is due to people like Ron Paul who take campaign contributions from the 
polluters who kill us.  There are 100,000 new cancer diagnoses in Texas 
each year.  Who is caring for people here?  It isn't Ron Paul. A goodly 
amount of the multitudes dying at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston 
are from Dr. Paul's district, which is nearly wall-to-wall petrochemical 
plants along the coast.  Then the prevailing coastal breeze blows the 
pollution inland, all over everyone, and they die like flies.  Dr. 
Paul's district, seen from a Permaculture design perspective, is a death 
camp.  The Nazis would be awestruck.
