I was encouraged by a friend the other day!

To give you guys a little history, I have this friend I met from church. I'm 26,he's in his mid 40s, and during the 2012 primary season we would discuss/argue politics. I tried to sway him away from voting for Mitt Romney, but he just saw the two choices that were put in front of him. We would get into some heated debates (all friendly of course) about the drug war, foreign policy, civil liberties etc. The areas we both agreed upon were economics, since he's for the free market...though not the extent that I am, since I'm philosophically an ancap.

Well after the primary season I would pretty much name drop some people he could look up on, i.e. Peter Schiff, Tom Woods and some Ron Paul videos. Well the other night he sent me a text which cracked me up, yet gave me hope for his philosophical change. His text was something to the effect of "Hey Ludwig Von Mises, I've been watching a lot of Ron Paul videos, I can't believe how brilliant he is concerning the economy!" This was definitely encouraging to me, he even name dropped Lew Rockwell!!! So no matter how stubborn people can become, always do your best to educate your friends, families, and acquaintances to the message of Liberty because it's only a matter of time before something clicks"

Another interesting note

I was told that he showed a video of Ron Paul discussing our debt based currency in his business class, and that his classmates were speechless. Apparently none of them knew this, so he's also planting seeds himself!

That's awesome!

Hey...someone 20 yrs. younger than me was the most powerful tool used in my waking up. It was little by little and his encouragement for me to check all the facts on my own and never just believing everything the media or others tell me. It took a couple of years for everything to totally click, but it did...because of him!
