Speaking Monday at The Heritage Foundation, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) outlined a conservative vision of a free society based on America’s first principles.

Two institutions lie at the core of American freedom, he said during his remarks in Heritage’s Lehrman Auditorium: “A free enterprise economy and voluntary civil society.” These organically-developed systems “work for everyone” by “harnessing individuals’ self interest to work for the common good.”

American freedom can bring people together, he said, while big-government policies divide people into interest groups and turn citizens into dependents.

Lee also rejected the liberal myth that conservatives simply to oppose progress. “The left has created a false narrative that liberals are for things and conservatives are against things,” he said.

The conservative movement “is about the nation we want to be,” he said. “We have to do a better job showing [the American people] our vision for America.”

How do you think we can better explain this vision of freedom to the American people?

Speakers: so disconcerting to see top of head and not the face.
Heritage needs to inform the people not listening to conservative media. Mailings reach members already informed in page upon page.
Brief Post card mailings to registered democrats and seniors (not on the net) church members etc. in simple text explaining core ideals of government.You know how to get the demographics. Periodic mailings helps.

Yes sir, a reaffirmation that the Conservative and Classically Liberal philosophies are the closest to the fixed aspects of human nature that our Founding Fathers understood to be at the root of us. These tenets do not need any white-washing or tailoring. They need to be broadcasted to everyone. We need to take back the language and beat the Statists’ at their own game. They have owned the language for the better part of 130 years. It is time we have the courage to defend what we know is true about us.
