  • Heritage Libertad: Taking the Conservative Message to Hispanics

    We are pleased to announce that Heritage Libertad, our Spanish-language website, is getting a facelift.

    For the past year and a half, The Heritage Foundation has been leading the conservative movement in taking our work, research, and policy analysis to Hispanics across the United States through Heritage Libertad. As a result, we have become a ubiquitous presence in talk radio, television, and online and print publications speaking in defense for liberty and freedom.

    We here at The Heritage Foundation refuse to believe that Hispanics are a monolithic ethnic group convinced that a bigger government is the answer to solving our country’s problems.

    As conservatives, we should work to ensure that every single American understands the perils of an increasingly expansive and intrusive federal government and how reckless spending is burdening our country with debt that will limit opportunity for all. This is a message that Hispanics—the fastest-growing demographic—should understand.

    What’s more, Hispanics should be made aware that liberal policies are actually making it increasingly difficult for them to live out the American Dream. Education policy is a great example underscoring liberal failures in being unable to bridge the racial achievement gap despite increased federal control and spending. Thankfully, recent polling suggests that Hispanics are open to conservative responses to fixing our failing school system, such as school choice and increased accountability.

    Heritage Libertad is just one of the many tools The Heritage Foundation is using to ensure that Hispanics understand why conservative policy prescriptions, grounded in liberty, are the best way to ensure that our great country remains a place for economic opportunity and a beacon of liberty to the world.

    We encourage you to help spread this message and the work we are doing at The Heritage Foundation.

      The conservative message to hispanics is 'get out of the country'. They have decades of evidence to the conservative messages to hispanics. A little to late to try and make up for your policies and votes. This is exactly why the Repulicans have 1 or maybe 2 decades left to make any real legislation, because soon, their demographic will be the minority whites.

    2. God Bless the Heritage Foundation. Unless the Hispanic Community is made aware of the diabolical plan being hatched by BHO to groom theHispanic Community into his newly developed slaves he will succeed with his goal being the position of Massa O. He has stated he views himself as Abe Lincoln but he must have failed history because as I recall Lincoln freed the slaves. This man is destroying the Hispanic family, encouraging and even rewarding indescriminate reproduction with increased welfare for each child spawned. If this is unrecognized as another form of child abuse, shame on us. Obama desires reelection and since many have recognized him as the despot that he is he must rely on keeping people unaware and dependent. And he has openly suggested the Hispanics are sufficiently uneducated and unaware to allow his goal of enslavement. I hope there are enough Hispanic real parents who desire the American Dream for themselves and their children to defeat Obama's heinous plan.

      Leaders in the Hispanic community need to review history of poor black minorities and the "destructive largesse" heaped upon them by PC Democratic Party. The only discernible difference will be label: Black minorities relegated to WELFARE PRISON; BILINGUAL PRISON is the designation for Hispanics. Both, unfortunate groups have within, large number of " willing and eager to just get by, if it means existing without working. Satan's minions-aka-PC will find vulnerability: lack of education, inability to satisfy wants, tendency to wallow in pity, blame others for personal plight. Once targeted, predators from community-lured with few dollars and chance to see self on TV will lure prey -seekers of riches of social justice utopia- to lifetime on BILINGUAL PLANTATION-aka-Burro or urban Spanish Harlem with no chance of parole- a JOB! Thank God there is a Heritage Foundation and the INTERNET to carry message far and wide. With God's blessing Hispanics will escape fate [ since end of Reconstruction] of America's poor black minorities. Conservative Black voices have pulled back curtain, ripped off masks to inform the PEOPLE! Good luck Hispanics, OBAMA and his comrades have you in their sights. Keep the faith and the conversation going.
