They comprise about 1/2 our alliance
So, I love them!
We (the GOP) generally do not view politics on a linear scale. We view politics thusly:
Our members range from "Right/Conservative" to "Libertarian." I myself land somewhere in the middle of that particular divide. If we're going to go by a linear scale, we'd contend that conservatives and libertarians are on the right, and liberals and authoritarians are on the Left. I believe, as William F. Buckley, Jr. did, that the success of sound conservative policy rests on the necessary existence of a healthy relationship/alliance between conservatives and libertarians.
Here's a political quiz
, for fun, to see where you land - if you haven't already played with similar political spectrum quizzes.

"Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views,
but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views."
