  • More ‘Gov’t Gone Wild’ Event Resources

    YAL’s National Activism Project for this month, “Government Gone Wild: Spring Break with the TSA,” is underway, and I have some additional resources for chapters that haven’t had their event yet, including:  infographics, new relevant news stories, and information with supporting evidence to help inform students about their rights and how they’re being violated — because if we …

  • Sh*t happens: The economics version

    Stand-up economist Yoram Bauman doesn’t usually swear, but it’s unavoidable in this routine (“Sh*t happens: the economics version”). Here is a taste: “Keynesian macro:  Sh*t happens because of animal spirits. … Supply side economics: Cut taxes and get more  sh*t!”  The world could use more thought provoking comedians like Bauman, Bill Hicks, and George Carlin (RIP). That’s …

  • National End Crony Capitalism Day Feb. 14th

  • Activism for Martin Luther King Jr. & Liberty (flyer included)

    Today is MLK day, a day to honor Martin Luther King Jr. and his great fight against racism, the chain of obedience, unjust wars, and unjust laws. My university (and likely yours too) has events planned in rememberance of Martin Luther King this week. I made a flyer (see below as .jpg and .pdf) to hand …

  • Congress Passes NDAA; Say Hello to Gitmo

    I might end up being indefinitely detained without charge or trial for saying this, but the US House just passed (283 to 136) the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which included provisions that allow for the indefinite detainment without charge or trial of US citizens the government says it suspects of being a part of …

  • New Quick Tips Video Series from the Leadership Institute

    The Leadership Institute, one of YAL’s closest strategic partners, has started a new series of Quick Tips videos, giving you helpful ideas to boost the campaign or cause of your choice.  This video, the 1st of 10 over the next two weeks, covers the three types of volunteers you’re likely to come across while working …

  • A Tip from Ronald Reagan for Defenders of Liberty

    Ronald Reagan may not have lived up to all of his pro-liberty rhetoric and promises, but he could teach us a lesson as candidates, activists, and defenders of liberty in general. Reagan’s lesson, taken from an article by Carla Howell, was that it is not just how you answer a question — it is which …

  • How NOT to Table

    Since its the start of the Fall semester,  y’all should be out tabling as much as possible! There is definitely an art to it — and it looks like some have got it down — but here is a funny video on how NOT to table!   And for no good reason, here are some …

  • Domestic (Government) Violence Awareness Activism

    A while back I was at Gainesville State here in Georgia helping Aaron Rainwater do outreach and recruitment. While doing Operation Politically Homeless there I noticed that his school, like mine, was also recognizing “Domestic Violence Awareness Month,” and had placed yard signs with various facts about it around campus: When I saw this sign, …

  • Woman Arrested for Orderly Exposing Corruption at City Council Meeting

    This video is a perfect example of why we need to — with the help of YAL’s Year of Youth Project — run and elect good pro-liberty constitutionalists to city councils and county commissions! (However, I do think electing state legislators that will work to pass state nullification of unconstitutional federal “laws” is just as …
