'm sure you're right about the people you know, I just didn't want you to think that we are all conservative-light.
I second that...conservation is conservative.

I have a lot of the "crunchy con" traits. My husband and I homeschool our four children, I love animals and the environment (but not Greenpeace, PETA and the liberal environmentalist ilk), and although I believe in the free market, I don't believe the free market is the answer for everything. Just because something may be purchased doesn't mean it should be purchased. I believe the time I spend with our children is more important than the things we I give them. I believe in personal responsibility and charity -- not government handouts or guilt-driven or high-pressure fund drives. I like growing some of our own vegetables and herbs, and when I can afford it, I prefer organic produce. If they made a hybrid that could haul our large family, I'd be tempted!
We aren't anti-technology. We have three cell phones and four computers in our house which help us connect with the world. We also don't think technology is the answer for everything. We aren't into status, but we don't begrudge those who have it. We know money doesn't buy happiness -- but we also know it can be very useful! We are devout Christians. We support the Second Amendment and the proposed marriage amendment defining marriage as a union between one man and one woman. We're pro-life. I prefer my New Balance tennies to Birkenstocks.
Some around here would call me a RINO, but I'm solidly conservative. It's nice to know I'm not alone.
