About Conservative HQ

Dear Fellow Conservative,

Welcome to ConservativeHQ.com—your online home for relaunching the conservative movement!

As I wrote in my book, Conservatives Betrayed: How George W. Bush and Other Big Government Republicans Hijacked the Conservative Cause, Republican politicians too often talk the conservative talk—but then vote with the Washington insiders for bigger and more intrusive government.

It’s time to take back our movement, our party and our country!

Unlike most conservative Web sites, ConservativeHQ.com isn’t devoted to attacking Democrats.  We’re devoted to relaunching the conservative movement.

That’s why ConservativeHQ.com focuses on the real threat to conservative victory: Big-Government Republicans.

Left-wing Democrats aren’t conservatives’ problem; we’ve consistently beaten them—at the polls and in the success of our policies.

The purpose of ConservativeHQ.com is to undo the damage caused by the Republicans who’ve betrayed the conservative cause. ConservativeHQ.com is the only Web site completely devoted to relaunching the conservative movement.

Here you’ll find the latest news on what’s happening inside the new conservative movement. We’ll keep you posted about the doings of true conservative heroes—those men and women who are standing up for conservative principles in their communities. And we’ll warn you about the pretenders—those wolves in sheep’s clothing who claim the conservative mantle and then betray conservative ideals in their words, votes, or actions. We’ll even provide a conservative calendar, to keep you up-to-date on all the conservative happenings in your area and around the country.

ConservativeHQ.com gives you an opportunity every day to send a message to the Big-Government Republicans.

Sign up here to join the grassroots rebellion!

Thank you,

Richard A. Viguerie

Richard A. Viguerie
Chairman of ConservativeHQ.com 

RICHARD A. VIGUERIE transformed American politics in the 1960s and ’70s by pioneering the use of direct mail fundraising in the political and ideological spheres. He used computerized direct mail fundraising to help build the conservative movement, which then elected Ronald Reagan as the first conservative president of the modern era. 

As the “Funding Father of the conservative movement,” Viguerie motivated millions of Americans to participate in politics for the first time, greatly expanding the base of active citizenship. He is our era’s equivalent of Tom Paine, using a direct mail letter rather than a pamphlet to deliver his call to arms. George magazine credited this as one of the defining political moments of the 20th century.

Viguerie’s advertising firm has mailed more than 2 billion letters over the past 42 years. Ronald Reagan’s 1968 campaign manager Cliff White and journalist William Gill wrote in their book Why Reagan Won: “In every election from 1966 onward, the Viguerie Company and its score of imitators…brought information to millions of Americans; information that quite often the people could not obtain from newspapers or television or mass-circulation magazines.”

The AFL-CIO News has said that Viguerie “made it all possible” for conservatives, and the Washington Post has called him “the conservatives’ Voice of America.” In 1979 Time magazine named him one of 50 future leaders of America, and in 1981 People magazine named him one of the 25 most intriguing people of the year. In December 1999 he was cited in the Washington Times as one of 13 “Conservatives of the Century.”

Viguerie’s latest book is Conservatives Betrayed: How George W. Bush and Other Big Government Republicans Hijacked the Conservative Cause (Bonus Books, 2006). Conservatives Betrayed is an incisive look at how the GOP rode the support of America’s conservatives to majority status, only to subsequently advance a liberal, big-government agenda. Conservatives Betrayed is both a manifesto of what conservatism stands for in the 21st century and a battle plan for reclaiming and revitalizing the movement.
