Founded in 1976 as the Great Plains Legal Foundation, Landmark Legal Foundation believes its challenge today is " to preserve America's founding principles of individual liberty, free enterprise and limited government ...never has America been faced with such a dramatic and continuous onslaught by powerful interest groups and unions dedicated to tearing down those liberties and advancing Big Government..."
