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.

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.
