Turns out that he is quite sincere about that. Kent Snyder, Paul's former campaign chairman (who was the one who coinvinced Ron Paul that he had a shot running for President) died of pneumonia, dirt broke and uninsured.
The Kansas City Star quoted his sister at the time as saying that "he was uninsured because a pre-existing condition made the premiums too expensive."
When he heard the news of Snyder's death, Ron Paul posted the following on the Campaign for Liberty website:
"Like so many in our movement, Kent sacrificed much for the cause of liberty. Kent poured every ounce of his being into our fight for freedom. He will always hold a place in my heart and in the hearts of my family."
Talk about being sacrificed for the cause of Liberty...
