Traditional wedge issue social politics are increasingly ineffective as a means to divide and conquer the electorate. Acknowledge the basic economic truth that taxation and revenue needs to generated in a fair and progressive way to ensure a healthy republic.
Embrace the realistic tenets of Libertarianism (controlling government surveillance/web privacy, ending the economic disasters of foreign interventionism, reducing subsidizing the military expansion of countries like Pakistan, India and Israel and ending the failed war on drugs crusade.)
We'll see what happens.
if being liberatarian is center right than than being republican means you're a liberal.
