Welcome to Young Patriots for Liberty!!
This is a very exciting day and one that Julia and I, as the founders of YPL, have looked forward to for quite some time!!
We believe that it’s important to remember the sacrifice others have made in securing freedom for us and that we do our duty in helping to preserve those freedoms. This is why we’ve created Young Patriots for Liberty!!
Let me tell you a little bit about who we are! Young Patriots for Liberty is a group of young people who are passionate about liberty. We believe that our liberty was not just won by our founders and all the others who have fought to preserve it, but that it is a gift from God Himself. We also believe it’s important that we all take up the torch of liberty that has been given to us and do our part in preserving this precious gift.
So, how do we do this? We talk to our legislators, encourage proper legislation, fight against unconstitutional overreach, write, and whatever else we can do to make a positive impact on our country – and we want to inspire YOU to do the same!
So, why Young Patriots for Liberty? We believe that being young doesn’t make you ineffective in the fight for liberty. In fact, we have found that young people, if they communicate well, can sometimes have an even greater impact on their legislators than older adults.
This is where you come in! We want to see young people joining us in the fight to preserve liberty and we believe that one of the best ways to engage in this fight is through personal, relational, one-on-one conversation. We’d like to invite you to join us in our mission – if you’re in Oklahoma, we would love to see you join us for hands on endeavors (which we will be posting about), and if you’re out of state, we will help you with ideas on how you can be involved in your own area while encouraging you to join our team by staying in touch online. One thing is for certain – we can’t succeed in this fight alone. We have to stand together!
We have to be well-informed about the constitution, current laws, laws that are being debated, and so on, in order to effectively fight for liberty. We’re here to help you learn the things we all need to learn about liberty and our nation through history articles, book suggestions, discussions about the constitution, coverage of current issues, and more! We want to spur you on in the campaign for liberty by relating our own experiences, and then we’d love to hear from you! We want to hear about your experiences. We’re all on the same team, so lets communicate and encourage each other!
Basically, we want to join together with other young people who aren’t afraid to work hard, who want to help fight to preserve liberty for future generations. Ronald Reagan said, “We have problems in our country, and many people are waiting for God to do something. I just wonder if maybe God isn’t waiting for us to do something. And, while no one is capable of doing everything, everyone is capable of doing something.”
Lets all pray and find the “something” we can do!
