Mr. Hudson, who is a libertarian-conservative, discusses divisions within the Tea Party movement between libertarians and social conservatives: "Objectivists apparently rub some fundamentalist Christians the wrong way, which has led to the concern among the Paul crowd about the direction the Tea Party is headed. The Tea Party’s Hudson disputes this 'takeover business.' 'Checking social issues at the door does not preclude picking them up on your way out,' Hudson said, 'and certainly doesn’t preclude supporting a candidate who shares your views. What the Paulites [Ron Paul supporters] saw was interest among Tea Partiers in candidates like Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann. 'They took this to mean that the Tea Party had been ‘taken over’ by social conservatives. It has not,' he said. 'There are simply social conservatives in the mix, working together with libertarians and others on the economic and constitutional issues they all agree on.'"
