Thinking of converting to Conservatism this year? The Heritage Foundation has compiled a list of books to read in 2012:

You need the First Principles gift list. We have collected the top 10 books from our list:

Above all else I'm a capitalist which of itself should be apolitical

My guess is that some conservatives disown the message of the conservative think tanks because they need to believe that they are independent thinkers.

Well, I just had my first visit to heritage.org, and saw that three of those authors are among the "First Principles" experts.

If you go to http://www.heritage.org/ you can find the answers to your questions regarding where they stand on the issues. After perusing the site myself (on this and other occasions), it sure looks like they support all the conservative stances on the issues. I'm assuming you are a conservative. If you aren't, my apologies. If you are, I'm interested in what mainstream conservative ideas you don't support.

"what, other than a conservative ideology, do you allege that the Heritage Foundation is trying to "sell"?"

Just out of curiousity, what, other than a conservative ideology, do you allege that the Heritage Foundation is trying to "sell"?

Please be sure to point that out to any conservatives using it as a source to back up their arguments.

The point is it's a blog trying to sell something and has about as much credibility as anything you post.
