Heartland Institute

Heartland Institute A 34-year-old free-market think tank based in Chicago. "Ideas that empower people." Milton Friedman was a big fan.
The Heartland Institute is a national nonprofit research and education organization based in the suburban Chicago village of Arlington Heights, Illinois. Founded in 1984, it is tax exempt under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. It is not affiliated with any political party, business, or foundation. Heartland has gained the endorsement of some of the top scholars, thinkers and politicians in the world — including Nobel Laureate Milton Friedman, former Czech Republic President Vaclav Klaus, Americans for Tax Reform’s Grover Norquist, radio talk show host and constitutional scholar Mark R. Levin, and former conservative Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC).

The mission of The Heartland Institute is to discover, develop, and promote free-market solutions to social and economic problems. Such solutions include parental choice in education, choice and personal responsibility in health care, market-based approaches to environmental protection, privatization of public services, and deregulation in areas where property rights and markets do a better job than government bureaucracies.

Independence Day in Britain!

The people of Britain concluded that a Rube Goldberg version of a free trade area was not worth the price of giving up the British legacy of democratic elections, a meaningful parliament, a legal system developed and tested for centuries that was the veritable gold-standard for the world, local control of local affairs, and visible limitations on the power of government that gave individual, family, and community life room in which to flourish.

The dream of European union as a path to peace and prosperity is a worthy one. It was not, however, the actual substance of the existing European Union as a reality.
