"You seem to have missed Mr. Colson's point. He notes that Crunchy Cons do NOT reject modern society as the liberal crunchy sort sometimes seems to want to do. They understand that God placed us on the earth to be stewards of His Creation. Crunchy Cons don't WORSHIP nature, but they do respect it. The article mentions that Crunchy Cons might DELAY purchasing things sometimes, or doing things they might otherwise want to do in favor of spending more time with their kids, e.g. homeschooling instead of Mom taking a job so the family can do more vacationing and buy more stuff...Nothing wrong with any of that, is there?"

Well said. *Applause* I'm glad to see that there are others like me out there. I'm as conservative as they come, but I also fit this "crunchy" stereotype to a "T".

Be sure to check the link to the article; there was some terrific reading referenced at the bottom. :)

He'd need duct tape to keep his head from exploding if he knew our dream is to have a 4000sf house that has photovoltaic solar cells in the roofing, a hugh pool of solar heated water underground with tubing running through it, through which will run the water that comes in from the city, and it will be heated by active solar collectors so that our water heating costs are negligible, and for that water to also provide our radiant under the floor heating. We want to have rainwater and grey water collection tanks so that we can use it to water the lawn and the organic square foot garden.

We're also looking to get hybrid cars that we can convert to PLUG-IN hybrids, that can be charged during the day from our photovoltaic cells. ;o)

Crunchy Cons, indeed!
