Subject: Getting more liberty

What's the best way for free market lovers to get more liberty?

Well it ain't easy.

Huge stumbling blocks stand in the way: a hostile media, an all-powerful state, cynical politicians and a sometimes apathetic public.

But just because something's hard to do, doesn't mean it can't be done.

And we can win more liberty in this country.

How?

Well, maybe this is "old school", but in my view the best way to win the "war of ideas" is through persuasion.
