You must watch this new video.  Its absolutely spot on.  BTW, sorry for editorial post this week.  There will be one next week on Liberty.

 

 

 At its core, stating that one has the right to life ought to, in a civilized society, be pretty easily understood.  It says, “Hey, put down that gun, you can’t kill him/her….” 

 

Some will say, “Hey, we support the right to life, it’s simply a matter of when life begins.”  Ok, show me the data that states the exact moment when life begins.  We can’t find a solid scientific answer for this.  So let’s just say, screw it, and err on the side of convenience and death….

Or, we could err on the other side.  The 2nd-3rd Century Church Father Tertullian’s says;

“For us (Christians) murder is once for all forbidden; so even the child in the womb, while yet the mother’s blood is still being drawn on to form the human being, it is not lawful to destroy. To forbid birth is only quicker murder. It makes no difference whether one take away the life once born or destroy it as it comes to birth. He is a man, who is to be a man, the fruit is always present in the seed.” (1)

Any rationale mind that does not advocate anarchy and the arbitrary destruction of human life would have to see that at the very least; one is taking a large chance in ending an innocent life by conducting an abortion…. 

What I am saying is that for the most part, the two sides of the debate are focused on two very different objectives.  The pro-life side with preserving life in accordance with our founding principles.  The pro-abortion side is focused on rights.  But whose rights?  Well, it’s obviously not the rights of the unborn.  It’s rights of the very, very, very born; people that are able to reproduce…. 

So what does this position of the pro-abortionist have in common with the defining statement of the founding of the United States? 

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”   

Well, one would have to say, not a single, solitary thing…. 

There are two groups in America today as it relates to Life, the group that believes and follows the founding principles of our country and the group that does not.  The pro-abortion group has already decided that ALL men are NOT created with the right to life.  Who gets the right to life is for the reproductive masses to decide.

founding-fathers“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them….

Pretty boring stuff, huh. Well, some of the most intelligent and courageous Americans that have ever lived didn’t think so….No, the first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence (DOI) is not the most exciting read, but it is absolutely foundational….

The principles that undergirded the founding of our country are the reason this is the country we love today…. We must know why we want to accomplish something before we can begin the hard work of accomplishing it….

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

With these words, the founders not only separated themselves from their native land, but they stated the principles on which this new country would be founded; life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness….

For all men to be created equal there must be, EGADS, a Creator! ….

So, in reading the DOI (and this is true for many other founding documents) the most core, underlying principle of the founding that has enabled this nation’s success and prosperity is simply the acknowledgement of the existence of God… To read the entire post, click on the link below.

Welcome to theyoungamerican blog.  This is our first post, and odds are, you could be the first person to read it.  Theyoungamerican is certainly a humble little blog, but with big ambitions.  If you don’t know what we are all about, please read the About section of this blog.  To summarize our purpose, theyoungamerican exists to

1.       Create a forum for likeminded youngamericans to discuss the principles and policies that will lead the country forward in a way that is consistent with our country’s founding.  (Our founding along with The Almighty’s blessing is the reason America has had the success that it has.)

2.       To nominate, vet, discuss, and eventually elect youngamericans across the country to office starting at the local level (if we don’t start locally we will never get to the national level).

3.       To establish a grassroots movement to rival that of liberal groups that wish to reshape the country and take it away from the principles and values of our founding.

In the coming weeks there will be two sections to this blog.  One will be discussion oriented and one will be focused on identifying, vetting, and discussing potential youngamerican political candidates (if you do not know what a youngamerican is, read the About section of this blog) around the country. 

 

If you are thinking, “what’s the point in nominating, vetting, etc., etc. youngamericans?  This seems like a waste of time.  We are working on some future initiative while the preverbal house is burning down.”  Well, you’re partly right.  However, we are just individuals that don’t really have a great deal of impact on a national level.  We have to trust that the collective will of the American people will react to the current administration’s overreach in taking our country down a path that is contrary to the Constitution and to what the President promised during his campaign.  We also have to trust in the Almighty’s deliverance.  This is not the first time that the nation has started to move swiftly toward the cliff, and we have always been brought back, we believe, by God’s provision.  If we are not able to trust in these two things, then we have already lost. 

 

Theyoungamerican acknowledges that the nation is in trouble, and that a radical agenda is being aggressively enacted in a duplicitous nature using the current economic conditions to ram through far reaching and potentially destructive policies.  But, we believe that The Heritage Foundation, The Cato Institute, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Hotair.com, and thousands of other blogs, talk show hosts, columnists and others (unfortunately, elected Republicans are not yet on this list) are more than adequate to counter what is being done at a national level.  Theyoungamerican exists to plan for the future, and the future of our nation lies with the individuals that comprise the nation and their potential to accomplish extraordinary things.  We also believe that the government can provide an assistance to the potential of the American people or it can be a hindrance.  Our work is to ensure that the government of tomorrow is made up of theyoungamericans of today that want to encourage and enable the American people’s potential, not demean, control, and tax it to death.

 

So concerning theyoungamericans nominating agenda, articles will be forthcoming laying out how this process will take place, but for now just consider this; no office is too small, no nomination too irrelevant, no one candidate too unknown.  Yes, we would love to have a youngamerican President, House Member, or Senator, but we will also be more than happy to see youngamericans elected to State Houses and Senates, city councils, school boards, Lt. Governor, and the list could go on and on.  Change and reform can be made at every level of government, and as we have stated before and will state again and again, we will not have relevance at a national level unless we first have relevance at a local level.

 

So start thinking about candidates that you would like to call out for upcoming elections.  We realize that elections are a ways off, but it’s never too early to start.  Perhaps you would like to call out a youngamerican that is already in office in your town or state, and give them accolades for staying strong and keeping to their principles.  That’s great too. 

 

We are also in the process of developing our first series of articles for discussion that look at how life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are the bedrock of our founding and our country’s success, and how the preservation of these foundations and the belief in them is fundamental to the future of the country.

 

This process will take time, but we must never forget that the country and its government are ours; of the people, by the people, and for the people.
