    Invade, invade, invade.

    Generally, the Fundies and Wall Streeters can both get along with the Hawks.  To the former America is the Light on the Hill spreading truth and democracy, while to the latter the invasions equal primitive accumulation writ large and the chance to profit from war.

    However, there is that Ron Paul Libertarian minority that sits out or crosses over if the Hawks become ascendent.  Feingold in WI, for example, was able to get the Libertarians in northern WI by opposing the Patriot Act (and much else), which helped him win a few elections until he got holier than thou and refused to take outside money.
