Summary: This document details the history of the origins of the Colombian political parties, Conservative and Liberal, from the perspective of a Conservative living in exile.
Historical Notes: The Colombian Conservative Party was founded in 1849 with a statement of principles written by Mariano Ospina Rodríguez and José Eusebio Caro. The Conservative party tended to be closely tied to the Catholic Church, and supported a centralized government and the maintenance of a strong political and economic elite. In the 19th century it divided into two factions: the Nationalistic (radical conservative faction) and the Historical (a moderate group). The Liberal party also developed in the mid-19th century, and tended to support religious tolerance, a decentralized state, and a more socially inclusive government.
