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.

I’ve sworn to myself that I won’t curse on this blog but this is really, really pushing it.  The headline says it all.  President Obama has graciously called for his secretaries to find $100 million to cut from the $3.69 trillion dollar 2010 budget.  That is 0.00271% of the total budget.  I’m sorry, but my one year old could find that much waste in the budget.  Don’t tell me, as the President’s press secretary humiliated himself trying to say, that $100 million is a lot of money.  I know that.  But $3.69 trillion is a he…ahem, a whole lot more! 

This is nothing but smoke in mirrors.  The media is dutifully running with this saying that the President is really making cuts, really working for the people.  My a…ahem, derriere.  This is smoke in mirrors, politics as usual, change (in Washington) that we are all used to.

The Heritage Foundation has an incredible visual of what this “cut” means to the total budget.  (Read “Obama’s Spending vs Obama’s Spending Cuts — in Pictures”)

The media is even saying that this is the President’s response to the tax day tea partiers.  Well, if this is all he’s got then we see just exactly how serious he really is about setting the country on the fiscal course we need to be on.

All you Obama voters who thought “we just need a change,” thanks a lot.

 

See for yourself.  David Axelrod on Face the Nation.  Basically the Obama administration’s position is that everyone who is not in line with George Soros is a fringe radical.   Love the change.

 
Every time we turn around another member of the Obama administration is insinuating that tea party protestors are fringe radicals on the verge of mounting a revolution to try to overthrow the government.  First it was Janet Napolitano’s releasing of the “Rightwing Danger” report to law enforcement around the country.  Now, they’ve struck again.  David Axelrod, senior Obama advisor stated on Face the Nation this Sunday that, “so far” these protests are just “expressions.”  (Read “Axelrod: Tea Party Anger is Misdirected”)  Obviously implying, “you just wait, those crazy Christian, conservatives are going to start throwing bombs any day now.”

Quick reminder, of nearly all (and by all I mean far more than 90%) of the terroristic and non-peaceful protests in this country since…forever, have either come from liberals (Weather Underground, etc.), non-politicals (John Hinckley Jr.), and Islamic terrorists.  So please spare me the speech about how people protesting excessive, intrusive, productivity stifling government is one step away from anarchy. 

Axelrod goes on to tell us that the tea bag anger at President Obama is misplaced.  He says Obama just gave 95% of American’s a tax cut.  This is asinine!  This is a perfect reason why the Democratic Party HAS to maintain total control over the education system.  People have to be completely stupid and uneducated to support them.  The tea parties weren’t so much about excessive taxation right now, they were about government spending and impending tax increases in the future to cover the bill.  Sorry, an extra $13 a pay period doesn’t make all of that go away.

I am beginning to realize, this is not the same country that it was a few months ago and has been all of my life.  Liberals screamed about how they couldn’t criticize Bush without being called unpatriotic, even though Bush and his administration never leveled such claims.  However, with our new President, peaceful and reasoned descent is cause for worry and to send out the minions to lie to and divide the American people. 

If this is change, keep it.  I’ll keep my freedom.
