Dear John, Two President's Club members were so inspired by Heritage Action's elite Sentinel activists that they issued a challenge:  if you and other Heritage Foundation supporters meet our $2 million goal by 3 p.m. today, they will give another $1 million. So far, Heritage and Heritage Action supporters like you have given nearly $1.4 million towards our $2 million President's Club Challenge. Heritage Action is our sister organization. Their 450,000 activists and team of Washington lobbyists forced lawmakers to cut spending, limit President Obama’s tax hikes, protect the Second Amendment, and stand up time and again to fight Obamacare. You can  donate online to this challenge here. I'm calling on you, as one of Heritage's most important supporters, to accept the challenge and bolster Heritage Action's grassroots strategy. Will you accept the challenge? >> Accept the challenge.   Thank you for all you do for America. With your support, we ca

You could fill a cereal bowl with broken glass and barbed-wire shards drenched in hot sauce right below my face. All it would
