(aka The Patrick Henry Center )
Another far-right-religious think-tank established by the old-guard of Reaganite Republicans along with Jerry Falwell's fraternity and the old Barry Goldwater supporters ("Bomb them back into the stone-age"). It is gung-ho on anti-communism, anti-anti-apartheid, and pro-Contra in middle America. SUMMARY ONLY
