EDITOR OF REDSTATE
Separating Men From Boys
It is my distinct pleasure to welcome Heritage Action for America as a sponsor of the Morning Briefing. As I have written repeatedly on RedState, there are five organizations in America that have my unwavering support and should have yours too. Put another way, there are many, many outstanding organizations in America that I truly respect and like. But there are only five I love like my own children. Heritage Action is on that list.1
Why do I like them? Because Republicans in Congress fear them. Look, I know a lot of Republicans get tired of me knocking Republicans, but I strongly believe if we don’t hold our own side accountable, the result will be devastation at the hands of voters.
Heritage Action for America holds Republicans accountable. When Republicans call themselves “conservative,” Heritage Action sets the bench mark on what that actually means. The result is that a lot of Republicans who call themselves “conservative” are really just pro-life statists ruining the country at only a slower clip than the Democrats. Heritage Action separates the men from the boys.
The Heritage Foundation provides the intellectual leadership for conservatives in Washington. It’s sister organization, Heritage Action for America, provides the muscle to move Washington right.
Now you may think you support Heritage Action for America because you support the Heritage Foundation. You would be wrong. They are separate entities. It’s all a muddled mess thanks to American campaign finance rules, but in a nutshell, Heritage and Heritage Action have separate membership lists. So you need go support Heritage Action in addition to the Heritage Foundation.
American Majority (and Am Action), Club for Growth, Gun Owners of America, Heritage Action for America (and Heritage), and the Senate Conservatives Fund.
