The most counter-culture, punk rock country on the planet
[monologue at link]
Conservatives are often more in tune with what’s going on in politics, they’re typically well versed on the ‘stats’ and are very good at making a point – but when it comes to working their way into cultural relevancy and the arts, conservatives are rarely affective at making a big difference.
Guest host Dana Loesch took on the topic of conservatism in popular culture last night on The Glenn Beck program, and pointed out a few things many on the right fail to remember. She noted how the left rallies behind the talking point that somehow conservatives are narrow in their thinking simply for believing in the very things our founders established the country on. Our founders, who broke away from the mainstream mindset of their day that government is a natural event. The believed the rights of man were out of everyone’s reach but of his or her own and God’s.
These were the ideals that allowed us to become a sovereign nation, to have freedom of religion, to be one of the first to abolish slavery and elected a leader of color. Our founders were the counter culture of their day, and as progressives mock the ideas of limited government and self-responsibility today, it seems that these ideas are yet again the counter culture.
