The Conservative Caucus (TCC) was founded in 1974 in the belief that conservatives could win in Washington only by mobilizing conservative strength at the state and Congressional district level.

Here is a list of our key accomplishments since 1974.

The key to success is still to let people know what is happening in government, and to tell them how they can have an impact on the decisions to be made.

TCC uses many methods to make conservative opinion felt in Congress and the White House.

We encourage members and all citizens to call, visit, or write their elected representatives; and to alert other Americans by calling talk shows and writing letters to the editor. Often petitions are collected and delivered to key decision-makers. Testimony before Congressional committees, meetings with members of Congress and their staff, video commentaries and programs, and Member's Message all help communicate to the public and make sure that elected officials hear what conservatives have to say.

Peter J. Thomas is the Chairman of TCC; read his biography. TCC was founded by Howard Phillips in 1974, and he was the Chairman of TCC from 1974 to 2011.

Mike Korbey: Director of Legislative Affairs. Mr. Korbey has been involved in politics and government for over 30 years, and is a highly accomplished executive with extensive private and public sector experience in management, communications, advocacy, and public policy. Mr. Korbey served in the administrations of Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush as a senior executive in six federal agencies; the most recent being as Senior Advisor to the Principal Deputy Commissioner at the Social Security Administration.

Mr. Korbey has exceptional knowledge of federal and state governmental operations. He has an outstanding track record managing and reforming federal agencies and advising senior government officials, members of Congress, and other influential leaders on a wide range of public policy and management issues. Besides his service in government, Mr. Korbey also served nine years as Director of Public Policy and Legislative Affairs for the United Seniors Association, a national seniors advocacy organization. Upon coming to Washington, he worked as a top political aide to legendary conservative strategist and fundraiser, Richard A. Viguerie.

Art Harman:  Communications Director & Policy Analyst.  Mr. Harman has worked in the public policy arena with TCC for three decades; is a veteran of many national, state and local campaigns; and focuses on issues including trade policy and American manufacturing, China (military, human rights, trade violations), NASA/space, immigration/border control, transportation, and grassroots lobbying techniques. Mr. Harman is also a television producer and photographer. He's traveled extensively in the world and returned home each time with greater appreciation for other cultures as well as renewed appreciation for the liberties Americans often take for granted. He's been behind the Iron Curtain in the Soviet era, witnessed the fall of the Berlin Wall, and saw first-hand the remarkable changes in the Post-Soviet era.

Statement of Principles of The Conservative Caucus

I. Right To Enjoy The Income From One's Own Labor:
There should be a ceiling on the proportion of income which government may take away, in taxes, from any citizen. Graduated taxation, combined with inflation, places an especially unfair burden on working Americans, whose tax rates increase automatically as inflation pushes them into higher tax brackets.

II. Right To Personal Security:
Citizens have a right to the security of their persons, their homes, and their property. It is the first task of government to protect the law-abiding from those who break the law.  Concern for the rights of crime's victims must be emphasized over the privileges of those who commit crimes. The goal of law enforcement should be to apprehend, punish, and isolate those who criminally violate the rights of others.

III. Right To Educational Freedom:
The right of parents to define the conditions and content of their children's education must outweigh the power of government to interfere in the selection of textbooks or teachers, or to use the schools to advance the political, cultural, and social objectives of government officials. There must be no forced busing.

IV. Right To Religious Liberty:
The government should not be permitted to interfere with the freedom of individuals to pray to God in accordance with their own beliefs; nor should there be any officially established orthodoxy, religious or secular.

V. Right To Life:
No government resources should be used to encourage, sanction, or assist in the taking of innocent human life.

VI. Right To National Sovereignty:
The defense policy of the United States should be based on a goal of strategic and tactical supremacy on land, in the sea, in the air, and in space. Our foreign policy should have as its sole and overriding purpose safeguarding the national interest.

VII. Right To Economic Justice:
The government should be required to hold the level of its expenditure to the level of its income and not print or coin new money to meet governmental obligations, thus inflating the  currency and deflating the value of money already in circulation. The principal victims of government over-spending are the working men and women of America whose income is reduced in value and whose jobs are threatened by the inflation and unemployment which results from a public sector grown too large.

VIII. Right To Be Individually Judged:
Quotas, based on characteristics inherited at birth, are both discriminatory and arbitrary, wrongfully disregarding individual merit, achievement, and successful competition in favor of collective classifications. The government should not apply or encourage the use of quotas as a basis of selection in education, employment, or conferring of benefits. Individual rights must, in such instances, transcend bureaucratic determination of group interests.

IX. Right To Political & Economic Liberty:
No citizen should be obliged, either by taxation, by regulation, or as a condition of employment, to support candidates, organizations, or causes with which he disagrees. Government resources ought not underwrite policy advocacy or political activity.

X. Right To Self-Government:
Grants of power from the people to their government should be so limited and carefully prescribed as to assure that such power will be exercised in behalf of those from whom it is derived, rather than to serve those in whom it is concentrated. The vast power of the Federal bureaucracy should be dismantled, with control over public policy and government spending returned to elected officials at the local level. Local self-government, in small communities where property ownership is widespread, encourages the existence of an independent, self-determining citizenry, whose diverse control over their own affairs is itself a check on the arbitrary power of distant bureaucrats.
