"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. :)
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!
