If you thought conservatives did not have swagger, then you were mistaken. Youth representation in the Conservative Movement is clearly needed more than ever. We are lucky enough to embrace small bastions here on the Left Coast and in other blue states. Nevertheless, there is hope–and it lies in the Northeast with this instance.
If you have not heard about The Young Cons yet, you are missing out!
Two strapping gentlemen from Dartmouth College–Josh “Stiltz”‘ Riddle and Dave “Serious C” Rufful–are uncanny, yet clever in delivering the conservative message. Who would have thought that two guys could rap eloquently about the importance of human life, free market principles, traditional values, limited government, Ronald Reagan, anti-communist sentiments, and the Founding Fathers? To get a better picture of these awesome activists, read here:
The Young Cons are conservative activists, division one college basketball players, Ivy League students, editors for The Dartmouth Review, rappers, bloggers, and co-founders of the 7,800-member Young Conservatives Facebook group. We have a mission to spread the love and logic surrounding true conservatism. In a technological era driven fiercely by the main stream media, those who vocalize the true conservative message of individual responsibility, moral absolutes, and small government are slanted as intolerant, racist, “bible and gun clinging”, corporate fat cats who could not care less about the environment nor the well being of their fellow man. Our group proves otherwise. Our performances are meant to be entertaining, combining both humor with serious commentary. In a day where conservatives are seen as close-minded and archaic, we bring a new perspective to a long-standing philosophy. Instead of sinking into the assemblage of the self-satisfied, we challenge the hearts and minds of Americans with lyrics that expose the true agenda of big government.
Newsweek briefly profiled The Young Cons in an article centered on a Washington, D.C. victory party on Tuesday, where they performed their new single, “Master of My Destiny.” The video beckons to be made viral, so do your part and spread it around?
I am proud to belong to a group of today’s movers-and-shakers in the Conservative Movement. Josh and Dave are proven examples that the conservative message can be delivered in a hip, fun and intelligent manner. They are forces to be reckoned with.
Watch out, America! More Young Cons are coming your way.
