14 Year-old Tells Fox News: 'End the Fed' Most Important Issue

http://www.youtube.com/wa...

He's a confirmed Ron Paul supporter and YALer (thanks to ron_paul_is_awesome)

Excerpt from the Daily Caller:

Minnema, the president of his Dixon High School Young Americas for Liberty chapter, attributes his love of government and politics to his parents.
...
He became a libertarian in 7th grade, he said, while doing an assignment on the 2008 presidential campaign. “I learned about Ron Paul and started doing more research into him and his work, his beliefs in Austrian economics. That’s where it kind of took off.”

a Bump to remove a stupid Mel Gibson post

Devon Minnema for President in 2044

.
http://www.causes.com/causes/283076/about

Devon Minnema is running for president in 2044; he is currently 13 years old. Inspired by the work of Congressman Ron Paul, he has immersed himself in the study of history and political analysis. Through this study, he has found that the U.S. is the beacon of Liberty only if it strictly adheres to the Constitution. The IRS must be abolished so that Americans can enjoy their hard-earned property without the government claiming first dibs. Austrian economics and precious-metal-backed-money are the only monetary policies that will consistently work. Failing systems such as Social Security, Medicare, and Corporate Welfare must be phased out. Our foreign policy needs to be changed to affirm our sovereignty. We need to stop delegating our liberty and sovereignty to supranational organizations and we must lower our corporate tax rate to a competitive level so that companies will come back to America and create jobs. The government cannot continue to send soldiers to die in a never ending war. These are just bits and pieces of the Minnema Prosperity plan. Please request more information if you have any questions.

Platform:
1.Free Markets and Valued Money
2.Free Minds and Less Personal Regulation
3.Less Government and Bureaucracy
4.Elimination of the Current Welfare State
5.Abolition of the Federal Income Tax

Keep going kid...

I'll sure vote for you!

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Internet education. Great to see.

Bumpity bump bump.

Money Bomb this kid early

I say we money bomb him for the next 22 years.

Young Mr. Minnema Has Nailed It !

*
Very few American adults realize that the Fed and its unlawful monopoly on the "Type" of money we use is the basic problem of what is destroying our sovereignty.

The reason the founders put the "nothing but Gold/Silver" clause right into the Constitution, was to keep the "Power" of money in the hands of we the people, not a small group of bankers, who have earned the title of "Vipers"!

beesting

Got that right.....

.....More parasitic than standing armies!

This kid understands the Media

He's much better than I am, and I have a lot more experience! Notice how he didn't just blurt out "End the Fed!" - He just calmly answered questions and smiled. And waited till he was asked. Now, there are times when you want to proceed to your issue - but most of the time, it would be good to follow this young man's lead.

and I so agree, l-liberty.

That youth reminds me of me.

i especially love it when he says how his friends chickened out at the last minute when they were supposed to go with him to the rally.

ahhhh memories!

The slogan press on has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.

That link works!

Thank you.

"This video is not available".

Has this video been pulled or are youtube up to their old tricks here in Britain again?

Working fine for me...so far

I just tried the link with no problem so far, but...

Out here in the land of the "Gates"keepers, I'm sure this video is being reviewed by agencies like Planned Barrenhood, the NEA, along with various Hollywood and Sports elite, to try and figure how one young man like this could survive and thrive at 14, the gauntlet they thought was inescapable...and could there be many MORE of them?

This video is deeply disturbing to tyrants, because they know that it has the potential to fuel an even brighter torch of Liberty, with the wisdom of the past, knowledge of the present, and vision of the future that Derin so confidently spoke of.

No matter how clueless and vapid the mediaspawn tried to downplay and avoid taking him seriously on camera, the aftermath of this is could be far reaching if it goes viral.

The British media want to manage the way we see Americans.

They want to paint a negative picture of the USA.

If any American starts to make too much sense or doesn't fit neatly into a negative stereotype, they don't want us to see it.

What's radical is this:

Imagine a business executive being given charge of a $100,000,000 business. Do you really think he wouldn't have been fired, mocked and ridiculed long before he oversaw his company's value plunge to $4,000,000?!!

What's radical is keeping him in charge AND praising his every move as an expert business person!

End the Fed

Hopefully by 2012, the Federal Reserve is a main issue!!

Yeah!!

If it is, we know just the man for the job!

This gives hope. Great job

This gives hope. Great job

I was a master in the fine art of gleeking

and shooting spitballs in class when I was 14. It brings me joy to see that there are young people like this still around...there's still hope for America!

"Liberty, when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth." - George Washington

nice to meet

another member of the gleek club...LOL

If a 14 year-old kid is smart enough to end the Fed

What does that tell you about the morons in our Government? And those that voted them in?

Out of the mouths of babes.
