If you think all conservatives are old white dudes, think again.
Meet the Chicks on the Right (if you haven't already). Everyone loves to tell them they're wrong - everyone. Liberals say they're wrong because, well, they're conservative. Conservatives tell them they're wrong because they are not conservative enough, or because they're too conservative, or because they're the wrong kind of conservative. With all the blame flying around, it's easy to lose sight of one important thing: they think like you. And they are right.
It's right to revere the Constitution. It's right to value personal responsibility, economic liberty, and free enterprise. It's right to think that political correctness is crap and to call out the mainstream media for bias. And it's right to laugh at the so-called War on Women and to stand up for the unborn.
With humor and insight, Mock and Daisy, as the Chicks are known on their blog, explain why:
Capitalism is a good thing - success and the money that comes with it are nothing to be ashamed of
First Amendment protections extend to all Americans, not just those with whom we agree
Americans have a constitutional right to things that go pew-pew-pew
Skin color is irrelevant
It makes sense to be pro-life and pro-Plan B
The Chicks offer suggestions for a conservative makeover that will realign the GOP with the regular folk, who are frustrated with uptight and clueless politicians. But they also show why conservatism makes sense for everyone - especially those who love their country, their families, God, rock and roll, and a well-made cocktail (not necessarily in that order).
