2014 Man of the Year: James Taylor

James Taylor

In an era where personal responsibility is lacking, Michigan resident James Taylor is a beam of hope for our nation’s youth.

"I didn’t force anything down anyone’s throat," he said, after throwing the biggest party Western Michigan has ever seen. "I didn’t make anyone stay here until 7 a.m. or 11 a.m. or whenever it is that everyone finally left."

"I didn’t make this kid pass out on my floor," Taylor said, pointing to a guy who was still passed out when the news trucks arrived. "People wanted to be here, that was their decision."

The unapologetic Taylor said the party was "worth it" despite six drug overdoses, and a good time was had by all. The party featured two DJs, a fire thrower, go-go dancers, and strippers.

At one point Taylor stood on his roof, cheered by 2,000 partygoers, a bigger crowd than Hillary can muster. One person drove all the way from Tampa to attend.

Taylor also gave some sound parenting advice, telling FOX 17 that parents shouldn’t have allowed their 14-year-olds to attend his rager.

"I think some parents should do some reflections on their parenting before they start getting mad at me," he said.

But most of all, the Free Beacon salutes Mr. Taylor for his unequivocal support for freedom:

"I feel like anybody that’s got a real problem with me partying out here in the middle of nowhere is a spaz."
