Even Ron Paul's campaign manager had the liberty and freedom to die penniless and uninsured

Ron Paul really believes that the state shouldn't pay the bills of the uninsured, no matter what. When asked about uninsured young man who suddenly found himself in dire need of intensive health care during the last debate, Paul said, "That's what freedom is all about: taking your own risks."

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...
