Like SoCons, libertarians have "must have" criteria.
And like SoCons, if they don't get their minimum needs met, they won't turn out. I believe it takes both factions to win, in spite of your take-it-or-leave-it pronouncement.
That doesn't build a coalition.
We don’t need to be pretending that the conservative/tea party base is small, like the libertarian people who are so confused and mixed up and anti-conservative.
Conservatives are the core, not a fringe element.
