Young Americans for Liberty is a student organization at UC Davis. The organization grew out of the group Students for Ron Paul, and is endorsed by Ron Paul. YAL is a non-profit, bi-partisan club for all people, but bent primarily for those of a Libertarian persuasion.
PURPOSE: To promote and defend the great American principles of individual liberty, constitutional government, sound money, free markets, and a non-interventionist foreign policy, by means of educational and political activity.
MISSION: To identify, educate, train, and mobilize youth activists committed to "winning on principle." Our collective goal is to cast the leaders of tomorrow and reclaim the policies, candidates, and direction of American government.

2009-09-27 23:44:47 Do you support same sex marriage? Legalization of marijuana? Radical revision of the Patriot Act and other forms of unconstitutional search and surveillance? The restoration of habeas corpus? Or, like so many libertarians, does your liberty extend only to the right to earn profit regardless of consequences to others? —CovertProfessor
While their specifics are not spelled out on their website, they distribute copies of the US Constitution, and their platform includes the anti-search and seizure phrase, "THAT respect for the individual's property is fundamental to a peaceful society;" and the phrase "THAT the individual owns his/her body and is therefore responsible for his/her actions;" which tends to be "we support getting rid of drug laws, but we don't want to look like looneys1". I know Ron Paul was very much against federal drug laws and the War on Drugs policies, and was pro-habeas corpus for military detainees. Of course, the local chapter may bend from the national org and their origins. —jw
- "So many" = how many? All of the libs I know are in favor of those things and not just their "right to earn profits" so where do you get the many from? I'm sure some exist, I've just never experienced that. All the people I met who you've described are Republicans. —OliviaY
- That sounds promising. I'd like to see where most of their efforts lie, however, not just what they say that they support. —CovertProfessor
2009-09-28 07:50:27 Also, is it just me, or is that eagle wearing chain mail armor? —JabberWokky
2012-05-30 23:21:37 Why hello there. —NewSOS
2012-08-28 23:19:57 Any response to the RNC disrespecting Ron Paul and his supporters tonight at the convention? I have mixed feelings about Ron Paul but I tend to vote Libertarian and think what the Republicans did to him will further alienate them from young voters. —MikeyCrews
The enemies of Freedom never sleep!
