Teen Homeschooler Helps Run ‘Youth For Palin’ Facebook Movement

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 14, 2011

Fifteen-year-old Madeleine McAulay is on a fast-track toward a political career.  The homeschooler is currently involved in the “Youth for Palin” movement and acts as an administrator of the group’s Facebookk page.  Kathy Blake at The Herald Weekly reports.

Local teen a political maven? You betcha

 It’s 10 a.m., and Madeleine McAulay is answering emails and returning phone calls. Later, she’ll squeeze in schoolwork from the six high school courses she’s taking online through Liberty University. It saves time, doing school at home.

But this morning, the subject is politics. Specifically, Sarah Palin’s politics and how the former Alaska governor’s platform on morality and values can be used to reach America’s youth.

Madeleine is involved in a movement called Youth for Palin, a growing collection of 15- to 21-year-olds who use Facebook to preach the conservative lifestyle Palin spoke of during her run for the vice presidency in 2008. She says it’s accumulated 161 members in a half-dozen states.

Madeleine had been up late, emailing Sen. Richard Burr and Rep. Sue Myrick, emphasizing her support and asking that they become aware of the Facebook cause, of which she is an administrator.

“I told them that I’m from their district and would love for them to be aware of our group,” she said.

Madeleine spent a week in March serving as a page in the lieutenant governor’s office, and she hopes to be a House and Senate page this summer. So much can be learned, serving hands-on.

But for all her worldly pursuits, there is this:

Madeleine is 15. She’s lives in Huntersville, in a house perched on land that’s been the family homestead for 150 years.

She’s a young girl who loves to tap dance. She baby sits. She admits to having “girlie stuff” in her bedroom. And she can’t vote in a presidential election until 2016.

So what.

“This next election, I will be old enough to intern, so I will try hard to do that,” she says. “I want to put that on my college application.”

Meanwhile, Madeleine is on fast-forward, researching, planning and using her ‘administrator’ title to post her beliefs.

Youth for Palin, Madeleine said, was started by a South Carolina man named Rollin Ross to “encourage our youth to understand the political world today.” It has spread to Iowa, New York, New Jersey and North Carolina. A contact in Iowa asked Madeleine to take on an admin role.

“I’m very proud of her,” said Madeleine’s dad, Beard McAulay., said “I’m encouraging her to explore everything that’s out there but at the same time to verify what she reads and make sure she can back up what she believes is right.”

Madeleine believes she ought to be a government attorney. She sees herself at 25 as graduating law school. “I’m a very prompt person. I like to know what I’m going to do, and when I’m going to do it, even years in advance,” she said. “This past election got me really interested. It stuns me, the way they crucified her (Palin). There was a little too much family involved in her politics.

“Even if you look back at (1984 vice presidential candidate) Geraldine Ferraro, they treated her the same way, even though she was on the other side of the political frame.”

Beard McAulay, 45, who owns ABM Data Solutions, said it was in about sixth-grade that Madeleine’s ambition grasped her. “It was like a switch that flipped. She was suddenly motivated to do well in everything she did,” he said. “Maybe being around good teachers and good siblings, but we have this thing about striving for excellence.”

Madeleine has a brother and sister in college. Her home schooling was a family decision, and they chose Liberty because of its Christian values and the program’s promptness in returning grades.

      Hi, Madeleine It is good to hear from you! We are thrilled to learn about someone your age taking such an active role in helping restore our country to its conservative values and in promoting the leader we believe will lead us in that direction. I can see that you have the drive and potential for a successful career in law and/or politics and wish you all of God’s blessings as you pursue your dreams. Keep up the good work!
