Dude I totally agree one does not have to be openly tolerant of others to be a libertarian. To be honest we could have someone who thought they were a jedi running the show as long as they didn't woo people who are "using force (government) to coerce their neighbor".That is exactly what a lobbying group does. All you need is some money, time and meeting the right folks and hey look at that you're influencing government. The group he was speaking with does just that. I just think he waved around his christian battle flag a little to people that actually do something with it. Be it for votes of whatever I don't know. Rand is not a bad guy and I think many took my post as attempting to bash him which was not my intention. I just though that more people placed value in holding on your points sticking to your guns.
