As Hollywood continues to try to ram crude language, sinful lifestyles, and liberal politics down our throats, there have been just a handful of popular television shows that have bucked the trend by actually reflecting the conservative values many Americans share.

But it explains that the show “was not just selling conservative ideals though, as some of the characters in the show are clearly of the liberal persuasion, yet the characters on the show all manage to get along and take care of one another, despite their politically opposed views.”
“The show is about more than politics though,” it adds. “It is about family. In fact, politics is only a secondary part of the show, but one in which many Americans can readily identify.”
