CONSERVATIVE LEADERS UNITE AND SIGN ON
TO THE MOUNT VERNON STATEMENT
Historic Document Defines The Principles, Beliefs And Values Of The Conservative Movement
ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Over 80 leaders, representing tens of millions of conservative activists nationwide, today signed The Mount Vernon Statement (http://www.themountvernonstatement.com/), a declaration of leadership for a new generation of conservatives that defines the principles, values and beliefs of the conservative movement.
“With this statement, and its many signatories, a new day dawns for the conservative movement,” said Edwin Feulner, Jr., president of the Heritage Foundation, and one of the drafters of the statement. “It reasserts conservative principles, values and beliefs that are embraced by more people in this country than those of any political ideology. Fifty years ago, the federal government threatened to grow exponentially. Visionaries then gathered in Sharon, Connecticut, to articulate essential principles of American governance. Today, that threat is even greater, and so we must articulate anew the nature of Constitutional Conservatism in the 21st Century.”
