In 1983, Ed Feulner, president of The Heritage Foundation, published Conservatives Stalk the House, detailing the history of the Republican Study Committee (RSC) from its founding in the early ’70s. It’s a story of a small band of conservative House members who believed they could better advance conservatism by establishing a new committee composed of conservative members.

Today, the RSC is lead by Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio). The Senate also has a similar group of conservatives who fight the big-government ideas of both parties: the Senate Steering Committee. The Steering Committee was also founded in the early 1970s as a non-partisan place for conservatives to network. Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) has led the Steering Committee since January 2007.

If progressivism and conservatism were cars,

conservatism would be a mid-priced, well-maintained car that has a GPS or plenty of maps and a sober driver who gets you where you need to go and home again,

and progressivism would be a luxury car with high payments, no brakes, no GPS, a string of unpaid tickets and a drunk driver who takes you to flashy places but strands you with no ride home.
