1960’s Young Americans For Freedom (YAF) Comes Back From The Dead, Attempts To Discredit Ron Paul

I got up this morning to start my day at work and checked out several sites, among them Daily Paul.

There were several articles touting the fact that Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) has kicked Ron Paul off their board.

I decided to check out Young Americas for Freedom because Ron Paul’s political director, Jesse Benton said in an e-mail to POLITICO:

“I hadn’t heard of YAF doing anything in years, I thought they were defunct. Young Americans for Liberty is the group of the future,” [bold mine]


He brings up a good point – check out the info on YAF on Wikipedia. These are just parts of their founding statements from Sept. 11, 1960, its hard not to agree with all of them, but a few stand out.

THAT the forces of international Communism are, at present, the greatest single threat to these liberties;

THAT the United States should stress victory over, rather than coexistence with this menace;

THAT American foreign policy must be judged by this criterion: does it serve the just interests of the United States?

Seems a bit out dated to me. The last line can be interpreted how ever you want it to be. Ron Paul always speaks in the interest of peace and trade with other people. How is this isolationism? Do people really believe that force and occupation is the way to show people how well freedom works?

So why did Young Americans for Freedom come back from the dead? In my opinion it came back because of all the positive press Ron Paul has been getting lately, they need to fight back against the truth.

You can call people Paultards all you want, but you are missing the most important thing. The ideas are powerful and cannot be stopped. Dr. Paul even makes a point to say that himself. I don’t expect anyone that has never taken the time to read about liberty and a true free-markets to understand his message.

It’s time to open your eyes – Ron Paul believes in a strong national defense and receives a lot of support from active military. He believes that we are more likely to be friends and trade with more nations if we respect their sovereignty.

Next time you see an article about Young Americans for Freedom ask why they support people like Rumsfeld, Cheney and Bush. Known criminals that have been threatened to be arrested if they fly to their country. These are the people that Young Americans for Freedom believe in?

Young Americans for Freedom – You are old news, no logical person cares about you and your fear of communist take over from the 1960’s. Your support for illegal wars, war criminals or another war monger president to step forward is not what America wants or needs, but I know you will try. You and your neo-con buddies will do your best to push back.  But, alas, You will lose, and in many ways already have.
