With Christianity furnishing the basic values of many paleocons, how do you feel about the possibility of working with non-Christian who agree on most everything else? Could you support candidate(s) of Jewish or polytheistic faiths, or no faith at all, who supported:
- dramatically reduced legal immigration
- stepped-up border enforcement and deportations
- official English
- US exit from the United Nations
- rapid pullouts of troops from Iraq and Afganistan
- reductions in public borrowing (perhaps by balanced-budget amendment)
- reductions in public spending
Those, I believe, are the really salient issues for paleocons. Notice that I didn't include abortion in there, because at the Federal level, abortion can hardly be entirely banned without straining constitutional interpretation, possibly even more than nationwide legalization-by-lawsuit currently does.
So, it's sort of an informal survey. Of course, the answer can be completely different from one group to the next ... I expect most paleocons are going to have an easier time accepting religious Jews, and those who don't specify their beliefs, than they would if they were faced with a Wiccan or atheist candidate.
