An Internet rap video that claims to reflect true conservative values is quickly becoming a cult success.

"The Young Con Anthem," created by two Dartmouth students, has received more than 115,000 views and has been featured on The Huffington Post, USA Today and a variety of blogs across the political spectrum. You can view it on the Leadership Institute's campus blog: http://www.thecampusright.com/
