Absolutely.  I am not willing to push the issue if it will be 
detrimental to the health and stability of the region.  I would 
really hate to see us polarize into an "us versus them" mentality.  
It's not worth pursuing a principality if it is going to cause hard 
feelings, factionalization, polarization, animosities, and 
destructive anger.  On the other hand, I think that it is (should be) 
possible to discuss the issue calmly and rationally and still remain 
friends even though we may disagree.  We just have to go into it 
agreeing to disagree agreeably. :-)  Or something like that.

That's probably true.
