First of all, I want to thank the readers that have found theyoungamerican and keep coming back. We had our first 100 hits day this week. That’s a small start but it is encouraging. As you know, theyoungamerican posts news articles and our commentary along with the occasional op ed. But that is not why the site exists. Theyoungamerican was created to give all youngamerican’s the opportunity to get involved in actually affecting who our representatives are, not only by voting in elections and occasionally giving money to campaigns, but in playing a role in who will be in the election and to stock the lower rungs of government throughout the country with likeminded politicians.
Theyoungamerican exists to be a place where anyone can nominate a candidate that is running for any office in the land to be endorsed by theyoungamerican. To do this you simply post a comment on the “Nominate a youngamerican” page. Once this happens, we will open up a separate page for the nominee where anyone can conduct research on the nominee and post their findings (news, voting record, etc.)
After a 30 day “vetting” process, we take a vote. If theyoungamericans vote to nominate the candidate, theyoungamerican will send the candidate a letter asking for their permission to endorse them and ask them to sign a simple statement that verifies that they agree to the core values of theyoungamerican. You can see this letter by clicking here.
Once the candidate signs and returns this letter, we then set up an entire page devoted to being a organizational platform for youngamericans around the country that want to organize for and support the candidate. We can network, plan events, raise funds, share best practices, organize door to door campaigns, etc.
The goal is to see politicians from around the country get elected that support the core values of theyoungamerican, namely, a true desire to protect and govern by the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, limit the size of government, excessive taxation, protect life and the country, and allow people to pursue their own religion, happiness, and freedom. This includes the need for free markets, reducing the national debt, state’s rights, tort reform, and much more.
Join with us! Nominate a youngamerican to any office in the country. Sign up for the newsletter. Forward the site to your friends and family. Let’s create a grassroots movement like no other.
