Many of my even conservative and moderate friends block our libertarian friends. We don't even invite them to happy hours anymore.
Don't pretend this isn't part of the image problem. This part of the party has made the right seem horribly unsympathetic to the poor. And unappreciative of teachers and cops. And it helped raise a stink about public funding for birth control that should never have been an election issue.
Again, it is terrific to move the right in a fiscal conservative direction with liberal principles. But there is a reason this is a niche movement versus a mainstream one.
