The ideas of the American Founding, expressed most succinctly in the opening paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence, and defended most eloquently by Abraham Lincoln, are not just nostalgic, beautiful ideas—they are powerful ideas. They drove the Revolution and the Founding in the 1700’s; what Lincoln called “a new birth of freedom” in the 1800’s; and the defeat of socialist and fascist tyrants in the 1900’s.

Today, they are as powerful as ever, because they are a true account of the best regime—that is, the way of life and governance for a free people. That is why these ideas are maligned and distorted at every opportunity by America’s foes, both internal and external. But it is also why these ideas inspire the devotion of true-hearted Americans—like you—who stand up to defend her.

Our mission at the Claremont Institute is to restore the principles of the American Founding to their rightful, preeminent authority in our national life. We wade into the battle of ideas with high spirits and good cheer, encouraged to know that we do so with your fellowship and support. We could not do our work without you.

Thank you for your support!
