Presidential Candidate Ron Paul Wants to cut FEMA

2012 Republican Presidential Candidate Ron Paul has stated the nation would be better off without FEMA. "There's no magic about FEMA" Paul said, "I live on the Gulf Coast and we deal with hurricanes all the time."
I am not stating my political viewpoint, but I do believe that if FEMA did not exist, there would be horrible consequences:

1. Hundreds more deaths in the last 5 years than with FEMA
2. Slower Evacuation notices
3. Slower/Little aid post-natural disaster

Not everyone lives on the Gulf Coast. Thousands of people haven't dealt with a hurricane in their life until Irene came through on the East Coast. Imagine what would have happened if FEMA wasn't around to put certain plans in action.
