    There's a reason for the saying "Politics makes strange bedfellows", and there's a reason that saying has been around for so long.

    Coalition partners don't have to be your kind of people, or even good people. Allies don't have to be friends.

    Grass-roots libertarians, the kind not captured by greedy billionaires, can be allies on individual rights. Ron Paul cultists will be against the next pointless foreign war.

    Gun owners (gasp!) include hunters who are natural allies on environmental issues.

    If there are still any old-style conservatives around, they'll oppose radical changes to safety net programs that work. Remember who invented the modern safety net and why.

    Freedom isn't free. Patriots pay taxes.

      Try explaining to a movement conservative that Otto von Bismarck created the worlds first welfare state and they'll tell you that Bismarck was a Nazi or a time travelling Obamabot
