We are dangerously close to splitting semantic hairs, but … When you use the 
word “you”, I think what you really mean is “everyone" = everyone participating 
in the process and arriving at the same shared result, so your sentence really 
goes, “Consent means only that everyone is willing to consent … do not have any 
objections that would prevent anyone from supporting …”  For the purpose of 
casual conversation, this closely resembles a group that has arrived at 
unanimity about something, however narrowly it may be contrived.
