An Important Announcement…

Friends and Fellow Patriots,

Over the past two and a half years, Young Patriots for Liberty has had the honor of reaching thousands with the message of liberty.  Since its founding in August of 2016, Young Patriots for Liberty’s mission has remained the same; to educate and inspire youth with the timeless message of liberty.  What began as a small online blog quickly became a national movement.  Our audience reaches from coast to coast, our words have echoed in the halls of state capitals and county parks, and our message has resonated with thousands – young and old alike. We have loved taking part in the never-ending struggle for a more perfect Union.  That is why, it is with a full heart, that we announce Young Patriots for Liberty will be ending all operations, effective January 2019.

The message of liberty transcends the work of YPL. While the work of Young Patriots for Liberty is coming to an end, all of us remain involved in political activism as we enter the next seasons of our lives.  We remain optimistic for our Country’s future and are confident that God, as He has always done, will bless a people whose hearts are faithful to Him.

Many of you may recall articles we’ve published regarding how many of our nation’s roots came from Scotland.  Scottish pastor and patriot, Samuel Rutherford, said in the 1600’s:

“For Zion’s sake hold not your peace, neither be discouraged…Jehovah is in this burning Bush. The floods may swell and roar, but our ark shall swim above the waters; it cannot sink, because a Savior is in it.  Because our Beloved was not let in by His spouse when He stood at the door, with His wet and frozen head, therefore He will have us to seek Him awhile…But yet a little while and our Lord will come again; Scotland’s sky will clear again; her moment must go over. I dare in faith say…Christ is but seeking…a clean glistering bride out of the fire…”.  

We have challenges in our country, but we’re still extremely blessed for the liberties we’ve been given. We each have a duty to be watchmen on the walls! We must be on our knees for our country that America’s “sky will clear again” and our hearts would be wholly turned back to our Creator – the Fount of every blessing.

We would like to thank all of you for being faithful supporters of Young Patriots for Liberty.  Without you, Young Patriots for Liberty would never have been the movement it has become.  Scripture tells us to not grow weary in doing good, for in due season, we shall reap if we do not lose heart (Galatians 6:9).  As this chapter comes to an end, we urge you to find a conservative cause you believe in and get involved.  Vigilance is the price of freedom.

Nam libertas,

American Nuclear Policy, Calculated Ambiguity and Maintaining Credibility in Military Conflict

“No First Use!”: Wishful Thinking and Conceding Advantage

Should the United States pledge against initiating a nuclear first-strike in the face of prospective military conflicts with Iran and North Korea? Analysis by Ploughshares Fund estimated that there are around 14,185 nuclear weapons distributed amongst the world powers, with the United States and Russia taking the lion’s share of the distribution. 4,150 of those weapons have been operationally deployed as of 2017. In the midst of such uncertainty concerning the potential usage of these weapons in military conflicts, given the seemingly inescapable realities of the security dilemma in international politics, the United States gains nothing strategic by committing to a no-first-use (NFU) policy that publicly reveals U.S. intent in military conflict against its adversaries. In fact, making such an explicit commitment is dangerous, and could severely cripple U.S. strategic leverage should a war with Iran and North Korea ever ensue. For that matter, maintaining a calculated ambiguity approach to American nuclear policy remains the more viable option in keeping U.S. adversaries in check.

I’m Not a Progressive, Here’s Why

I’m not a progressive, and I’ve been told that I haven’t given serious consideration to progressive ideas. I have (more than most), and I’m still not persuaded.

I’ll tell you, here and now, why I don’t subscribe to the progressive agenda. What I’m not going to do is tell you rumors, myths, or tabloid-style political news. (Yes, I’ve been guilty in the past. I’m sorry, and I’ve corrected it).

When I refer to the ‘progressive agenda,’ I’m talking about the left-leaning ideas that are currently espoused by many in America and the world. These ideas include, but are not limited to: socialism, expanded government, redefinition of human ‘rights’ (including healthcare as right), intersectionality, etc. 

So, without further ado, here is why I’m not a progressive:

The Change We Need

If you asked the everyday American what was one of the most divisive aspects of society, politics would assuredly be a top 5 answer. And thanks to the badmouthing, lying, and mudslinging, politics is rightly perceived as an estranging topic. From the lowly activist to the elected official, all are calling for change. But what exactly needs to change, and how can we change it?
