Conservative Political Movements

Back to My Lists

This is a list of individuals, groups, petitions and other political movements of the conservative bent that have caught my attention over time.

Manhattan Declaration: A Call of Christian Conscience. 2009 conservative manifesto signed by American religious leaders to affirm support for “the sanctity of life, traditional marriage, and religious liberty”. HomepageWikipedia

Catholic Advocate. Advocacy group that encourages “faithful Catholics to actively participate in the political process to support elected officials and policies that remain consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church.” Publishes in print and hosts online a Congressional Scorecard that rates the voting records of “Catholic” Senators and Representatives on key issues. Fr. Benedict Groeschel has represented this organization in at least one fund drive. Homepage

Shelley the Republican. GOP blogger Shelley Goodman reportedly from Little Rock, Arkansas. Shelley’s main site STR † The Freedom Blog (via Wayback Machine) appears to have been active between November 2005 and June 2011, and there is a Blogger site with the same name with posts from October 2004 through September 2008. Shelley is a fan of the GOP, Sarah Palin, and Chuck Norris, and a strong opponent of Obama, atheism, and (of all things) Linux. There is some suspicion that the site is a parody (Snopes forum). RationalWiki

Tea Party. A decentralized and informal political movement in the United States initially funded by Republican Ron Paul that advocates the reduction of the national debt through cuts in government spending and taxes (i.e. limited government). In general, it avoids addressing social issues. It’s namesake is the Boston Tea Party of 1773.
