Few people are more passionate about preserving individual liberty than Jeff Frazee. The founder of Young American’s for Liberty (YAL) got his start in politics as an intern, and later a campaign advisor for Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX).
“[I] saw a real big potential, and a lot of young people being interested in Congressman Paul and his ideas,” Frazee said. “My interest had always been starting an organization for liberty and getting young people involved in the political process.”
This led Frazee to form YAL, a pro-liberty group whose mission is to “identify, educate, train, and mobilize youth activists committed to ‘winning on principle’.”
YAL has quickly grown in popularity since it was founded in 2008 and currently has more than 300 chapters and more than 26,000 youth activists nationwide.
For the next election, Frazee says the state of our nation’s economy is probably the issue that young voters should be most concerned about.
“Within that [the economy] is the debt, the whole thing with social security, knowing that that’s not going to be a solvent for our generation, the sheer path that we are going on with the national debt,” Frazee said.
His advice to young people is simple: get involved!
“If you’re interested in politics and the political process, there’s a lot of incredible opportunities that haven’t been available to young people that are available now,” Frazee said. “There’s certainly a need for talented and skilled young people, and it’s just a matter of taking the initiative.”
