4. Republican Lite
Some of these are converts from the Ron Paul and Rand Paul campaigns. They tend to lean conservative, which can occasionally make them a bit uncomfortable with, you know, the classical liberal philosophy of liberty. Regardless, this group can make excellent allies, particularly on matters of economics. There’s something really sweet to see, when a former Republican starts to realize their party isn’t for small government at all, and they wake up to notions of liberty and make their way, Atlas Shrugged book in hand, to a liberty conference. They have a tendency to run back to the Republican party when they think things can be solved with traditional political solutions, which is one of their less stellar features, but their sincere belief that Republicans can be converted en masse is sweet. Just don’t hold your breath.
