Thank you for saying the things you're saying.

I agree with a lot of them (probably most?), but shouldn't speak out 
publicly in the same way you have: these are the kinds of things get 
very political very fast, and it's very easy for me to get myself in 
"trouble" arguing with all these folks that want more 
government/governance in their lives... I want less, and so far less 
governance seems to have worked out just fine in this community.

<libertarian rant>
Your opposition's claim is that they want to protect minorities via 
majority rule... but that's a performative contradiction. The individual 
is the smallest minority; those who deny individual rights, cannot claim 
to be defenders of minorities.
