The liberty movement, as it applies to winning Presidential elections, is a part of the "pissed off GOP voters" coalition. Ron Paul, Rand Paul, Trump. All appealed to that larger cross section of the GOP. Sometimes a Paul is the most appealing candidate to the "pissed off GOP voters", sometimes it's not a Paul who is that candidate. This year it was Trump. The Pissed Off GOP Voters don't agree on all the specifics. They generally agree that most GOP politicians generally suck, that Ds are Rs are pretty similar. Ron and Rand did get votes from people who were not part of any liberty movement, but thought that they liked Ron Paul because he'd do something different from the suck that we were getting from the conventional Ds and Rs. By reading this website recently, I'd have to guess that the #1 cause that the liberty movement is fighting for is keeping the minimum wage low. And I don't even buy into that one, and I doubt that anyone is buying on to the liberty movement because of that. Anything different from what we have no, and Trump is doing a convincing enough job convincing people he's different.
