If you think all conservatives are old white dudes, think again.
Meet the Chicks on the Right. Everyone loves to tell them they’re wrong—everyone. Liberals say they’re wrong because, well, they’re conservative. Conservatives tell them they’re wrong because they are not conservative enough. or because they’re too conservative, or because they’re the wrong kind of conservative. With all the blame flying around, it’s easy to lose sight of one important thing: they think like you. And they are right.
It’s right to revere the Constitution. It’s right to value personal responsibility, economic liberty, and free enterprise. It’s right to think that political correctness is crap and to call out the mainstream media for bias. And it’s right to laugh at the so-called War on Women and to stand up for the unborn.
As they do every day on their blog and radio show, Miriam Weaver and Amy Jo Clark offer a definitive response to critics on the Right and the Left and a cheerfully snarky pep talk for like-minded conservatives. On one hand, they are tired of the media’s portrayal of conservatives as repressed sticks-in-the-mud; on the other hand, they are sick of GOP leaders who play right into that stereotype.
With humor and insight, Mock and Daisy, as the Chicks are known on their blog, explain why
capitalism is a good thing—success and the money that comes with it are nothing to be ashamed of;
First Amendment protections extend to all Americans, not just those with whom we agree;
Americans have a constitutional right to things that go pew-pew-pew;
skin color is irrelevant;
it makes sense to be pro-life and pro-Plan B.
The Chicks offer suggestions for a conservative makeover that will realign the GOP with the regular folk, who are frustrated with uptight and clueless politicians. But they also show why conservatism makes sense for everyone—especially those who love their country, their families, God, rock and roll, and a well-made cocktail (not necessarily in that order).
“Right for a Reason is not only fun to read but it is correct in advocating that people relax and converse with each other instead of allowing themselves to be manipulated into being enemies. I hope this book will be widely read by conservatives, liberals, and everybody else.”—Ben Carson, MD, New York Times bestselling coauthor of One Nation
