ON-Lion Letter
The new ConservativeHome website debuted in mid-November as forum for the public debate about the future of conservatism.  The site's editors believe that conservative elected officials and policymakers need sharp, new ideas to build a broad-based coalition for change.

ConservativeHome is edited by Ryan Streeter, who was a special assistant for domestic policy to President George W. Bush and is a distinguished visiting fellow at the Sagamore Institute in Indianapolis, a nonresident fellow at The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF), and a nonresident scholar at the Institute for Studies of Religion at Baylor University.  The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee supports Streeter's work at Sagamore and projects at GMF.

Modeled after a similar site in Great Britain, ConservativeHome starts with the belief that the United States is an exceptional nation and it believes in fiscal conservatism and that faster economic growth is essential to solve America's current problems.  It also believes in smaller, but more-effective government, that government should be the poverty-fighter of last resort.  It is socially conservative, as well.

Among other things, ConservativeHome offers daily selections of the day's most-important conservative news and commentary, a blog, and a Big Ideas page that profiles individuals, think tanks, and organizations that are meeting tomorrow's challenges with good ideas.
