The tip of the spear

A while back I realized that the RP/Liberty message are very hard for people to understand. I'm guessing that each one of us here can attribute our loyalty to a time consuming self journey of learning and enlightenment. Getting someone to the tipping point where they start their journey can be very hard. So, with this in mind I've been banging my head trying to find a simple idea that everyone can agree on to start the conversation. Here's what I came up with, let me know what you think.

- Reduce the power at the Federal level and Return it to the States -

Simple analogy - If you are due paying member of an HOA and find that your money isn't being spent wisely, wouldn't you rather have the HOA office/president down the street so you could let him know how you and your fellow neighbors feel, instead of him being across the country being protected by a call center employee?

Let's 1st do this and then we can return to our discussion over X,Y and Z and what should be done about it at the state level.
By the way the only people advocating for this are Ron Paul and Libertarians, everyone else wants more power.

I think a discussion like this could open the door pull people from both sides as your not making a statement that conflicts with their brain washing.

What do you think?

Solutions are great. So I think yo are off to a great start there. I extended a much smaller solution to some friends this year. I basically challenged them to not buy any xmas presents or holiday paraphanilia on cresit that they cannot pay back instantly (so really no need to use the credit card). The point I am trying to make with this idea is that not spending more than you make is possible and almost fun (time to be creative), and if we can do it on a personal level we can think of bigger levels to work with.
