I don't know. If, instead of getting ready to turn 50, I were a teenager whose home equity withdrawal-enabled lifestyle was being yanked out from under me in a rude awakening to a different new world or, if I was still in or just out of college and the events of the last couple years were being discussed in ways that older generations just don't understand, the last 60 years of American life looking a lot better than the next 60, I'd pledge to do something to.
At about the 2:15 mark, one young man stands in front of the Federal Reserve building in Washington D.C. and pledges "not to let unelected bureaucrats run our economy" followed by another who pledges "to resist fiat currency". What's not to like about that?
This was spotted over at the Daily Bail and comes from the Young Americans for Liberty website in response to "the nauseating "I Pledge to be a servant to our President" video by Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher that came out around Obama's Inauguration last year."
