In a matter of speaking, yes. You'd be surprised how many people claim to support liberty and prove otherwise.

Without a website, geographical tie, collective theme interest, same building style, and all that jazz, I wonder what makes this LUG this LUG.
I realize I'm not making much sense, but what I mean is, why will people feel connected to communicate with each other without a platform of communication, and dedicate their MOCs in a certain way?
So I wonder what will connect the people of LibertyLUG?
Virtually all people support liberty in an inarguable way, so we seek people who take a step forward from that with a more involved interest in liberty...

I'm wondering how you're planning to successfully work with a combination of Lego and political views, because let's be fair, that's what LibertyLUG will essentially be about. The only thing that can make people say "I want to become a member of LibertyLUG!" would be an opportunity to express their political views through MOCs.
The past has shown us this can be done very well but always has a flipside. As with political art, writing, etcetera, there will always be people who oppose these views, and if you're not catering to a certain group, wouldn't this cause conflict within LibertyLUG eventually?
I may see it wrong, so be sure to note that this is just the way I see it and I realize I can be wrong. But the way I've seen it happen on other LUG sites is that no matter how well built political MOCs are, there are always people who get offended by them, even if just for the sake of getting offended or arguing for that matter. They will retort in saying they're just expressing their own political views and there really is no civilized way to end or repress it.
For example, in Classic-Castle we can all disagree and argue but in the end we're all Lego Castle fans, or we quite simply wouldn't be here. Classic-Spacers can argue all they want (and they do a lot), but in the end if they see a well-built space ship, they'll all admire it equally and agree on how great it is.
what binds LibertyLUG members together? What makes them say "Yes we both support the same thing" when we know expressing political views can offend and cause arguments?
