True North: The Principles of Conservatism
A guide to building an America where freedom, opportunity, prosperity, and civil society flourish
Heritage

The Heritage Foundation formulates policies that promote free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense. Heritage does not support policies that deviate from these principles, nor are our recommendations ever influenced by donations or outside political pressure.

  • The federal government exists to preserve life, liberty and property, and it is instituted to protect the rights of individuals according to natural law. Among these rights are the sanctity of life; the freedom of speech, religion, the press, and assembly; the right to bear arms; the right of individuals to be treated equally and justly under the law; and to enjoy the fruits of ones labor.
  • The federal government's powers are limited to those named in the Constitution and should be exercised solely to protect the rights of its citizens. As Thomas Jefferson said, "The government closest to the people serves the people best." Powers not delegated to the federal government, nor prohibited by the Constitution, are reserved to the states or to the people.
  • Judges should interpret and apply our laws and the Constitution based on their original meaning, not upon judges' personal and political predispositions.
  • Individuals and families—not government—make the best decisions regarding their and their children's health, education, jobs, and welfare.
  • The family is the essential foundation of civil society, and traditional marriage serves as the cornerstone of the family.
  • The federal deficit and debt must not place unreasonable financial burdens on future generations.
  • Tax policies should raise only the minimum revenue necessary to fund constitutionally appropriate functions of government.
