It's this intolerance in the liberty movement that is divisive

We need to find our common ground and work toward making those changes. We ARE a minority unfortunately. We do strive daily to reach people, to wake them, to stir the dormant liberty beast inside them. But it is human nature to cling to your adopted (or programed) dogma.

What Robin says is dead on. A typical person reasons that if the new information contradicts what he already knows then it must be a lie or it must be wrong so they promptly dismiss it. Plant the seed anyway. Eventually it may grow and bear fruit. Ultimately, I guess, we are just patriot versions of Johny Appleseed.

If we work together yet pursue various avenues toward freedom and if we are inclusive rather than exclusive then we will grow our numbers and begin to see the beginnings of liberty being valued and restored. Ron Paul was all inclusive and never tore anyone down by their ideals. He instead focused on bringing people to liberty through spreading ideas. He IS a shining example and a "Gold Standard" if you will. It's about progress not perfection. You have to make progress first before you can get anywhere near any sort of perfection.
