Young Americans for Liberty – Purdue
We are the Young Americans for Liberty (YAL). As Americans we recognize the God-given natural rights of life, liberty, and property set forth by our Founding Fathers. Our country was created to protect the freedoms of the individual and to be directed by â€œwe the peopleâ€.
We recognize that freedom deserves responsibility and therefore we hold ourselves to a high moral character and conduct. Integrity emphasizes our stance towards action. Principle defines our outlook towards government. Peace and prosperity drives our ambitions towards our countrymen.
We inherit a corrupt, coercive world that has lost respect for voluntary action. Our government has failed and dragged our country into moral decay. The political class dominates the agenda with a violent, callous, controlling grip. And, for this we do not stand.
We welcome limited government conservatives, classic liberals, and libertarians who trust in the creed we set forth.
We, as Young Americans for Liberty believe:
That government is the negation of liberty;
That voluntary action is the only ethical behavior;
That respect for the individual’s property is fundamental to a peaceful society;
That violent action is only warranted in defense of one’s property, but peace is our primary law;
That the individual owns his/her body and is therefore responsible for his/her actions;
That society is a responsibility of the people, not the government.
