I'd like to discuss the possibility of some kind of coalition party focusing on the common interests of groups currently ignored by the major parties. I'm specifically interested in the overlapping concerns of libertarians (and libertarian leaning conservatives) and OWS progressives. Is there enough common cause between the two groups? Would such a group offer a viable alternatives the status quo parties? Here's a list of what I see as areas of common interest, and areas of disagreement. What do you all think? Please add to the list if you see anything else. Agreement: Opposition to corporate/government collusion. (corpoare welfare etc...) Opposition to the warfare state Support for individual rights Possible points of contention: Welfare state Economic freedom Obviously, there are more. Any thoughts?
