Help Stop the Greatest Threat to Your Freedom

President Obama, the liberals who run the U.S. Senate, the news media, and most universities know the secret to changing America forever.

That secret? Misinformation. They only have to convince enough politicians and enough voters that:

  • Obamacare will bring us health.
  • Raising taxes and spending will bring us prosperity . . . or, at least, “equality” and government dependence.
  • Intrusive government regulations will bring us safety.

You know this is nonsense—but how can you help convince others?

Who will lead the way back?

The Heritage Foundation is America’s most influential conservative “think tank,” with 270 scholars and staff based in Washington, D.C. Heritage experts passionately advance the conservative principles and ideas of America’s founding. Born in 1973 and instrumental in past conservative comebacks, including the “Reagan Revolution,” Heritage’s vision is to build an America where freedom, opportunity, prosperity, and civil society flourish.

Heritage’s staff pursues this vision by performing timely, accurate research on key policy issues. Then we effectively market these findings to Congress, the media, top level influencers, and grassroots Americans.

We counter liberal falsehood—the greatest threat to our freedom—with facts. Truth.

More than 710,000 of your fellow conservatives are Members of The Heritage Foundation! We’re turning the tide. America is waking up.
