Description

Cliff Maloney of Young Americans for Liberty joins the show to talk about the “Defend the Guard” movement popping up in state legislatures around the country. The legislation on which the movement is based calls for an end to the calling up of states’ national guard troops to federal service without an explicit declaration by congress. These “Defend the Guard Acts” are one avenue by which Maloney’s organization hopes to reduce the scope of the federal government’s abusive overreach and help build a grassroots antiwar movement among American conservatives.

Cliff Maloney is President of Young Americans for Liberty. Before serving as President of YAL he was the National Youth Director for the Rand Paul Presidential Campaign. Follow him on Twitter @LibertyCliff.

  • I love how those that hate states rights applaud each time a state allows same-sex marriage, in a direct contradiction of the federal law which they so admire. However, I would love to hear others opinions on these topics, from minarchists to anarchists. How do you think state’s rights will continue to serve as a reinforcing issue in LGBT rights. And what happens when federal law is passed allowing universal same-sex marriage, and states still refuse to comply?
