If you’re a libertarian for Rand Paul; some libertarians will say you’re not libertarian because you’re not loyal to the Libertarian Party, or support Rand Paul despite his imperfections (of which there are surely a few).
If you support the LP; some libertarians will say you’re not libertarian because you participate in elections and should be an anarchist.
If you support anarcho-capitalism; some libertarians will say you’re not anarchist enough because you don’t pay for things solely in bitcoin, and you continue to pay your taxes.
I really don’t care about infighting. Personally, I will support any effort that I believe will even in the slightest regard move someone in a more libertarian direction. If I think one, just one person might become libertarian because of this or that, it has my support. If supporting everything libertarian, perfect or not, makes me a non-libertarian in your eyes, I don’t care – I will keep doing my thing.
