Response to kpete (Original post)

9. I tell my righty friends I'm a lib and I don't drink kids blood or want to take away their stuff etc

I confront them and say you have known me for X number of years and do I look or sound like a communist? Then I hit them wit some truths that they find hard to deny by showing how intimately intertwined with government and how they really could not live without all the government intervention in their life. Some examples include food safety, water, air safety, sanitation, snow plowing, and government disaster response. Schools, police protection, a court system to enforce contracts and individual rights from the right to speak to property rights the list is exhaustive. Next time you get in an conversation with your rw creepy uncle hit them with these truths then tell them if they want to live really free without government intervention then put up or shut up and move to Somalia and see how long they last. Tom Hartmann taught me a lot about our relationship to our government and just how much we need and depend on government.
