No one needs anyone to form a coalition, it's a voluntary act. But if we want to put a guy in the WH that follows the principals we highly value, that will never happen unless we form coalitions with people like Beck who are fiscally conservative. That's the entire point of a political coalition, people come together and support a candidate and not all of them for the same reasons.
I don't necessarily think he wants to bring people to libertarianism, I think he is trying to figure out how we can form a wide enough base around a candidate like Rand Paul in order to first and foremost get him out of the primaries as the nominee. That's challenge number 1, which we obviously were unable to do by just ourselves with RP in 2012.
