  • Merry Christmas from YAL

    Here’s our 2012 Christmas song. The lyrics are written out below! To the tune of “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town”: You better watch out, You better not cry, Better not pout, I’m telling you why: Lib-er-ty is coming to town!   YAL’s making our plans For twenty-thirteen, Fighting for freedom like you’ve never seen …

  • A Christmas Song from YAL

    Merry Christmas from your friends at Young Americans for Liberty!  To the tune of “Let It Snow” Oh the weather outside is frightful, But in YAL’s office it’s delightful, And as the year draws to a close, Help YAL grow!  Help YAL grow! Help YAL grow!                 Yes, this year was quite successful, We hope …

  • The Gift That Keeps on Giving!

    This holiday season, I came up with a not-so-original idea to use silver as my trademark gift. Not only is it an educational tool that brings up questions about investing and the future of the dollar-based system, but it’s also worth a nice chunk of change. As we speak I’m packing for a family get …

  • The Real Cost of Christmas Cards

    Don’t get excited — I’m not talking about the monetary cost of purchasing colorful Hallmark cards for your third cousin’s spouse’s aunt, among others, that you met that one time at a family reunion. Instead, I’m talking about the cost that the government imposes on our liberty through its simultaneous support and regulation of the United …

    What may be the most festive political scandal of all time broke Tuesday when the Heritage Foundation reported that a 15 cent tax would be applied to each fresh Christmas Tree sold this holiday season. After the tax spent the day getting slammed across the internets, Obama and friends decided to delay the implementation of …

  • Merry Christmas from YAL!

    Twas the night before Christmas, and in the YAL house, Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. A semester was finished, projects complete, And Dr. Paul once again won his congressional seat.   YAL interns were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of liberty danced through their heads. With students on …

  • Last Minute Shopping Ideas for the Scroogey Statist in Your Life

    Before you set out on the last minute holiday shopping spree through the junk of the 21st century, allow Silver Underground to make some shopping suggestions that will kill two birds with one stone — you know, buying the gift and having “the talk.” If you are a liberty-minded person, we all know the goal …

  • How Christmas Is “Celebrated” In North Korea

    I know it’s a little late to discuss this article, but I think it’s a chilling reminder of how Communist, freedom hating societies tend to work. For most North Koreans, publicly celebrating Christmas (or any other religious holiday) is impossible because the government restricts all practice of religion  (even though the N. Korean Constitution declares otherwise). As …

  • Merry Christmas (2007) from Ron Paul

    Yes, this is from two years ago, but if you haven’t seen it yet (or even if you have), enjoy.

  • Paul McCartney on The Christmas of 1914

    ….when the murdering briefly stopped. Soldiers from both sides ignored the state, came together, socialized, and exchanged gifts as human beings naturally do. (Thanks to Tom Woods for the link)
