At 10:58, I read that "Republicans must form a fiscally conservative - socially liberal coalition with the libertarians if they wish to defeat socialism." Instead, how about libertarians forming a fiscally and socially conservative coalition with Republicans if they wish to defeat socialism? (The real extent of the GOP's social conservatism is debatable, but let that pass for now.) If liberalism is the common enemy, libertarians should be as willing to make concessions for the common cause as they expect conservatives to be. Yet, they are not. Why? Perhaps because, when all is said and done, the social issues where they agree with the liberals are more important to them than the economic ones where they agree with conservatives.
