Marketing Expert: Rand Paul Forging a 'Conservatarian' Coalition

Sen. Rand Paul's well-received trip to Silicon Valley proves a Republican candidate for president can unite conservatives and libertarians — two camps that view each other warily — into a genuine political force, marketing and finance expert Eric Schiffer told Newsmax TV on Thursday.

Concerns about the economy, government spying on Americans, and the direction of the country have converged to give Paul an opportunity — and he took full advantage with his appearance last week at the Lincoln Labs Reboot 2014 technology summit, Schiffer, chairman and CEO of Patriarch Equity and DigitalMarketing.com, told "MidPoint" host Ed Berliner.

Paul made his "conservatarian" pitch to West Coast tech entrepreneurs — a laisse-faire bunch that prefers as little government involvement as possible in people's business decisions and lifestyle choices.

They're embedded in a state, California, that is otherwise dominated by Democrats. But the senator from Kentucky made inroads, said Schiffer, by demonstrating common ground between conservatives and libertarians on issues of limited government and personal freedom.

It also didn't hurt that Paul, who will need some deep-pocketed campaign donors if he runs in 2016, understands the financial damage tech companies face if their customers can't trust them to keep government snoops out of their databases.

"This is about money at the end of the day," said Schiffer.
