Libertarians and Conservatives: Can They Work Together?
Not too long ago, we received a great question from one of our readers named Thomas. His question addresses the different factions in the GOP and the importance of uniting on principle to achieve victory this year and in 2016.
In addition, people who care most about socially conservative issues should not alienate libertarians on fiscal issues and should understand that government funding of certain social issues, like abstinence education, is contrary to the small government core of social conservatism. Moreover, if libertarians want to be more influential in the movement, they should put aside issues like drug decriminalization and instead focus on reducing the size and scope of government. There’s nothing wrong with them championing common sense reforms like reforming mandatory minimum laws for nonviolent drug crimes. However, if they want to win more people over to their cause and be more influential, they should prioritize welfare reform over drug decriminalization.
In regards to the GOP establishment, let’s be honest. They are the biggest problem in our movement, because they say they are for limited government, but don’t mind another tax hike and are tolerant of crony capitalism. Also, they talk about being pro-life (and sometimes being pro-family) only when it’s convenient. They generally bring up those issues during elections just to secure votes from the socially conservative voting block. Essentially, the GOP establishment is a foe to conservatives and libertarians, but there are few members of it who are sympathetic to our causes. We can’t discount those people.
