Factionalization Watch, continued

Doug at the Liberty Papers notices the beginnings of a movement aimed at expanding support for libertarian-oriented candidates beyond Ron Paul. Right now, the movement is focused primarily on electing libertarian/Old Right candidates in the Republican Party primaries. Should Paul run as a third party/independent next year, would this (still-nascent) movement go with him?

Either way, the beginnings of a movement like this fit comfortably within the concept of the Republican party beginning to split up as the fragile alliance between libertarians, Wall Street Republicans, and evangelicals continues to disintegrate.
