“To understand where we’re going, we have to understand who we are as individuals and as a society,” Jim DeMint says in a new video about why The Heritage Foundation is so important.

America needs leadership from an organization devoted to America’s First Principles, DeMint says. That means “an organization that’s not afraid to proclaim that truth is truth, that conservatism is alive, and that no government should control the lives of the people it serves.”

Watch the video above and tell us in the comments why Heritage is important to you.

I appreciate and identify with Heritage and have contributed in the past, but my problem today is that none of the conservative groups I have helped to support seem to really know what to do about the present administration’s piece by piece destruction of our country, our morals, our constitution — the things we do seem to have actually no effect, and it is discouraging me from feeling that I do any good with my donations.

Dear June,

Thank you for taking the time to comment and for your support of The Heritage Foundation. Now is indeed a tough time to be a conservative, and like you said, we are witnessing the fall-out from years of destructive liberal policies. It’s tough to watch, but that is exactly why we keep fighting.

At Heritage, we go to battle day in and day out using sound policy research to counter liberal rhetoric and ultimately prove that conservative ideas are the best ideas for America. For the upcoming year, Heritage experts have developed detailed policy recommendations to solve the crises America faces. From our Saving the American Dream plan, which shows how to balance the budget within 10 years without raising taxes, to our Conservative Alternative to Obamacare, which harnesses free enterprise and empowers individuals, we are making a difference in the hearts and minds of many Americans.

At Heritage, we believe conservative ideas are on the march. In fact, just yesterday our president Jim DeMint announced that in 2013 we increased our membership to over 600,000 men and women across the country.

I hope you will continue to stand with Heritage and help to promote the conservative principles that you and I hold dear.

Thank you,
