Are you a Crunchy Con?

I listened to Rod Dreher, author of the book Crunchy Cons, on the Michael Medved program this afternoon while I cleaned my kitchen. While I didn't agree with everything he said (for instance, I'm not against the death penalty and while I don't like big box stores, I do shop there to save money, etc.), I was fascinated by the topic. I've always felt that the liberal conception of conservatives as fat, greedy, gas-guzzling, french-fry chomping, anti-intellectual bores didn't quite fit many of the people I know! In fact, I feel quite at home at a Barnes & Noble or Whole Foods store, am currently considering joining a produce co-op, like to make my own granola and bread from whole wheat that I grind myself, plan to homeschool any future children, and if my husband and I ever get our dream of building a house out in the country, we will be checking into solar power:o)

These are very interesting links. Prior to reading your blog today, I had not heard of the term "crunchy conservatives", but must say that the idea fits me quite well. :)

I love your dream about building a home in the country with solar power. What a fun idea.
