I disagree on removing them

The reason is two-fold.

First and foremost is the simple fact that not every person here will agree with each other on every single issue. Nor does every single person here agree with even Ron Paul himself on every single issue. These people, so long as they genuinely believe in the foundations of liberty and aren't here only to shill for the status quo (I'm sure there's plenty of them; how small they must be to spend their time actively trying to denigrate this movement), are free to speak and act their conscience on issues. That's a primary component of what we believe in, isn't it? If there's some freedom thinker who's here to learn and they don't believe in legalizing freedom weed or gay marriage or not backing Israel or what-have-you, that's their prerogative.

This leads into the second reason. Instead of taking the easy way out and suggesting that these people leave or be forced to leave, do the hard thing and work to open their eyes. If we cannot convince those among us to get behind the few things they disagree with the majority here on, how in the hell are we to expect ourselves able to convince people who have no involvement what-so-ever? These people come here for a reason, and if that reason isn't to just piss in our cereal, I think we owe it to them and ourselves to teach them why something like legalizing marijuana is important to freedom.
