The Young Americans for Freedom has voted the Texas congressman off its national advisory board in the aftermath of his straw poll win at CPAC over his positions on national security issues.

"It's a sad day in American history when a one-time conservative/libertarian stalwart has fallen more out of touch with America's needs for national security then our current socialist presidential regime," said the group's national director Jordan Marks.

I have noticed from your posts, Mayabong , that you seem to be a troll.

Just politics. I think this is more of an attempt to start planting anti-RP tidbits out in the press. I really don't think it matters who wins in 2012 as the monetary system will be shot by then and the US won't be able to afford all the military around the world anyway.

Anyone who really follows politics knows that the best candidates for the US in these troubling times is Sarah Palin as pres and the winner of American Idol as VP. Makes sense to me.

Well that is a trollish thing to say.

Please show me some proof that I'm a troll.

Is my new topic about Kombucha a trollish topic?

Jeez really?

Maybe they need to call themselves Young Naive Americans for Freedom. There is nothing in the CPAC speech Ron Paul said that I thought warranted this. What Dr. Paul says moves people and the establishment has got to notice this and are very, very scared of him. There is no one more dangerous to them than a well versed intelligent person who can gather crowds. If he does in fact fun in 2012 he has my vote.

Run Ron Run

I'm betting Ron Paul's popularity has grown since he is the only politician who makes any sense and CPAC, etc. etc. all want to discredit him and cast him down because the people DO love Paul. If you look at what Trump said about Paul having zero chance, the Ron Paul supporters heckling Cheney and then being escorted - it all seems planned out. This Young American for [Slavery] crap is another slam against Paul. Next, you'll probably see a smear campaign or something.

I firmly believe the Republican party has been bought and now will toss up a worthless candidate in order for Obama to win again.

This is a very good thing, in my opinion.

The first (and last, prior to this) that I've heard of this group was when California Young Americans for Freedom chairman Ryan Sorba trolled last year's CPAC for inviting a gay conservative group to the event. I'm sure you've seen it:


I'm very happy to see that Ron Paul will no longer be associated with these people. Reading their wiki page, where they state that the greatest threat to America's freedom is communism and that it needs to be confronted, not co-existed with... they sound like a group that has very limited appeal in American politics. Sounds like a relic from the cold war era to me.

"Freedom fries"
it certainly does
braincells.

PS

Who cares ? The Young American for Liberty have spread from no chapters in 2008 to hundreds now. A grass roots organization of real freedom lovers is far better anyway. Go Young Americans for Liberty! Go Campaign for Liberty! GO RON!!!

What a surprise; the warmongering young Rethuglicans don't want an anti-war guy representing them.

What ever happened to the good 'ole days when non-interventionism was a conservative value?

This organization was started in the late 60's to be a foil to SDS. It was infiltrated by the Progressive left long ago and it's a shill organization for Progressive propaganda masquerading as a conservative group of which it is anything but.

I am not ready to call you a shill, BUT....
You bring this article, but you have no comment about it. I believe that a Mod is supposed to step in an remind you that it is only proper that YOU bring something in the form of your opinion/analysis of the article you are bringing.
What do you think of "Young Americans for Freedom"?
Do you think it is proper for them to do what they have done?
What do you think of Ron Paul and his politics?

That is a start.

Ok sorry. I was feeding my kid when I saw this article and figured it should be up here. ASAP

1. I've never heard of YAF before until today.
2. I think they can do whatever they want, and I think this move is funny.
3.. I think Ron Paul is awesome and agree with him on just about every issue.

I just figured this was a funny thread to call me a troll in, right off the bat.

I will explain my posts better from here on out. Glad the guy could get himself some stars for calling me a troll. Hard Earned. I even gave him one.

I would have to agree with many of the amusing posts left on the comment section of the OP's link.

- "So?" (rply #1) -

- "They are insignificant and have no impact on influence on anything or anyone. It is like saying Paul was kicked out of the Mickey Mouse club!" (rply #4) -

- "Who the heck is YAF? (rply #7) -

- “LOL! Do you know who these guys are? Sorba, who got up on stage at CPAC last year and 'condemned' CPAC… and was booed off stage was YAF“. (rply #9) -

- Let me get this straight; a barely known group of wannabes "nobodies", laughably kick-out thee most influential and greatest person to ever be part of their increasingly irrelevant little organization... and they publicly announce it? YAF must stand for: The Young Americans for Fools club" -


This video speaks volumes on YAF.

One can understand why the words "increasingly irrelevant" and "classless" seem to come up a lot when researching this group:

Bottom line:
Ron Paul's honorable name, being no longer linked to YAF, is great thing but destroys what little (if any) respect they had left.

Ron should send them a 'thank you'.

Young Americans for Freedom is a Republican, hawkish group, having nothing in common with Ron Paul.

The faqct that you continue to lump people like Ron Paul in with the rest of the tired old Repubs shows you have no view to the future.

The times of the stereotypical Right, they are a changin'.

Too bad that the stereotypical Left can't say the same.

Anyone on the Left that rallies behind Gore, Obama, and Hillary, while ignoring someone like Ralph Nader is a hypocrite.
Period.

You mean that it's common sense.

There are no such thing as "liberal" or "conservative" values.

I understand your rhetoric, but would like to expand on that and attempt to answer:

Religion hi-jacked the politics when Bush started a war on terror. It worked for Hitler, and apparently being a Christian implies a semblance of moral character. Islam and Christianity were put on scales of good and evil, and the moral constructs of millions become political tools in their daily affairs.

No, friend. American conservatives really are that whacked-out and out of touch with reality.

If Liberals got control of one of these sort of organizations, we'd do something fun with it. We have a sense of humor and a perverse love of satire; we'd turn it onto an african violet lady's club, or perhaps a traveling soup kitchen that serves only chili.
