2014 Conservative Policy Summit: An Agenda to Unite America


2014 is a crucial year for our country.  This fall the American people will go to the polls and choose between two vastly different visions for the future.  The Left offers more of the same: managed decline and the further Europeanization of our nation.  Conservatives, on the other hand, have a positive agenda that can restore economic vitality, renew the American Dream and equip individuals and communities to achieve happiness and prosperity.

Many conservative reformers are leading through action.  On February 10, Heritage Action for America will bring nine of them together at the 2014 Conservative Policy Summit.  This event is designed to highlight the bills these conservative leaders have introduced and show what a bold, forward-looking conservative reform agenda looks like.  Each discussion will include a leading Member of Congress, thought-leaders from the conservative movement, and an issue expert from The Heritage Foundation.

The day will conclude with an evening reception to meet conservative Members of Congress, Heritage policy experts, and other prominent conservative scholars as they prepare for the legislative year ahead.

The Conservative Policy Summit will clearly differentiate 

the conservative vision from the status quo.

  1. "Increasing Local Control"? Please watch how you phrase things. Cities and counties are just as power hungry as state and federal legislators. Give the control back to the citizens, thank you.

    1. That all depends upon your view of people in general.

      And how would you propose doing that, exactly?

      If you view all government as bad and desire a pure democracy, as in “The power is with the masses governed only by majority rule, ” then you would have failed to learn the lessons of the past, ancient Greeks had a pure democracy, and it became the epitome of mob rule and devolved into chaos. That road is just as doomed to complete failure to the same degree as it\’s polar opposite, socialism.

      At some point you have to stop seeing black helicopters everywhere and begin to trust in those whose own self interest resides in representing yours. That is why our form of representative republic has shown over time to be the single most stable form of government in existence.

      But please, do lay out your views in a more detailed way so that we can examine them in the light of day… I would hate to have misconstrued your point of view.
