I believe before we can unite

we must acknowledge and learn to respect our differences.

Without doing that, we'll spend so much wasted energy stepping on landmines within our own group.

From the initial replies, it seems the good sentiment is here, to band together despite the contrary beliefs. But it also shows how many landmines are laying about if we're not careful. I think we need to be more careful, while still dealing with necessary discussions, not to let the fractures develop into chasms.

I'm also wondering how some groups have velcroed themselves to our backside? Why is our philosophy often described as libertarianism/anarchism? Since when does a group that wants to destroy and prevent any form of government become an ally to those seeking smaller and constitutionally limited government?

Some detailed assessment of the camels within our tent would be in order before expecting any real progress.

That was more my intent.
