Republican/Libertarian Alliance by James Aalan Bernsen has written about it in Texas Republic News, October 27, 2009
Something unprecedented happened in America on April 15, 2009, and the implications for the political landscape of Texas and America could turn out to be profound. A tenuous alliance between two political groups was formed that, if maintained, could reverse years of conservative losses and portend ill news for liberals.
What is happening is a gradual meeting of minds between conservatives and their distant cousins, the Libertarians.
“We’ll work with anybody that we feel is in agreement with our core beliefs,” said Pat Dixon, Libertarian Party of Texas chairman said of the growing alliance between the groups represented by the Tea Parties. “I think when there are ideas of economic freedom” the alliance makes sense.
Bryan Preston, a spokesman for the Texas GOP, said Republicans are reaching out and finding lots of common ground with Libertarians. That common ground traces its roots to opposition to President Obama’s agenda.
“I’m encouraged by the reaction that Obama is spawning among pretty much everyone who doesn’t want government controlling their lives,” Preston said. Pointing to a recent Gallup poll that shows 40 percent of Americans identifying themselves as conservatives, Preston said that Washington is growing increasingly “out of touch.”
