The Conservative Creed

by We, the conservatives of America, hold that government should just leave us alone … and (1) Should enforce school-compulsory attendance laws that force us to send our children to state-approved schools; and (2) Should force us through income taxation, Social Security, Medicare, farm subsidies, and other mandatory charity programs to help seniors, the poor, and others, and (3) Should incarcerate and fine us for ingesting non-approved substances; ...

Much Ado about Nothing on Mueller’s Indictment

About FFF

Founded in 1989, The Future of Freedom Foundation is a tax-exempt, non-profit educational foundation whose mission is to present an uncompromising moral, philosophical, and economic case for the free society.

We hold that the welfare-state, warfare-state way of life that has come to characterize our nation violates not only the founding principles of the United States, as reflected by the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, but also the fundamental principles of freedom.

Our methodology revolves around the spreading of ideas on liberty, which we believe is the best way to restore a free, prosperous, and harmonious society to our land. We invite you to explore freedom with us and to support our efforts to advance the principles of freedom.
