Conservatism in Colombia

Simón Bolívar is the image in which Conservatism in Colombia creates its ideologies: the ideals of this great character were used by many years on the different conservative movements. But the first formal party was created at the year of 1837, because of Jose Ignacio de Marquez and the image of Bolivar, it was known as "Republicanos Moderados". There did not exist a program, but they were believers of God, and liked Order and Control. On the year of 1840 there occurred a civil war that helped the perfilation of future parties, including the Colombian Conservative Party movement, principal representative of this ideal.
