False Flag-Josh Marshall has this sentence-"As we noted earlier, GOP Marketplace's founder and president, Allen Raymond, is also the Executive Director of the Republican Leadership Council, a GOP PAC known for libertarian social policies and tax-cutting." More the former than the latter; I've been of the impression that the RLC is the anti-Religious Right caucus of the party; here's the second paragraph from their mission statement
The Republican Leadership Council was formed in 1997 by leading Republicans throughout the country concerned that the Republican Party is being increasingly defined by the actions of an intolerant vocal minority that divides the GOP.
To lead with the group's pro-market stance is to cover the groups main raison d'etre, even if the group stresses their economic libertarian credentials in the first paragraph. If the group were that libertarian, why would RINOs like Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe be on it? There are a few standard conservatives on the advisory board, but the bunch is more RINO than conservative.
