Eric Sharp

Eric Sharp grew to adulthood in Franklin TN, during the 8 year onslaught that some have called the Presidency of King George. Every morning he gazed at the Channel 1 News screen with more and more contempt for the needless war and evisceration of the Constitution.

Upon matriculating at Middle Tennessee State University in the Fall of 2007, he briefly dabbled in the anti-war left, as Rothbard did in the 60s. It was during the Ron Paul primary campaign that Eric came to learn of the sweet fruit of Liberty. The following months were rigorous- when he wasn't in class, Eric was watching documentary after documentary and reading book after book, constantly learning. When Eric realized that the Statist society that was being constructed silently around him was a society in which he had no place, he decided to take action.

He changed his major from Studio Art to Political Science and joined Campaign for Liberty. He became an organizer for End the Fed!, a grassroots campaign of Restore the Republic to end the Federal Reserve. He organized and executed two End the Fed Rallies in Nashville before taking on additional responsibilities as the Treasurer of Young Americans for Liberty at MTSU, helping to organize and execute several movie screenings, and putting together demonstrations on campus to reclaim MTSU from Marxism.

Since the Fall of 2009, Eric has organized two more End the Fed Rallies in addition to fulfilling his YAL duties. In February of 2010 he was awarded a scholarship from the Ludwig Von Mises Institute to attend the “Birth and Death of the Fed” conference in Jekyll Island, GA. Eric attended and personally spoke with Ron Paul about the Labor Theory of Value as opposed to the Objective Theory of Value. Eric Sharp is now the President of Young Americans for Liberty at MTSU and has BIG plans for the Fall of 2010.
