Don't bother

There is no proselytizing people like him. To try is a waste of time and energy. I'd do something to better the cause of liberty instead. Maybe call your local AM radio show and plug liberty values. I think you'd have a better time giving small doses of liberty to amiable conservatives who don't yet get it.

In my experience, liberals believe in a benevolent government who's role is to take care of everyone.

Perhaps, so you don't waste too much time, a one sentence response would work, something like- "Libertarians believe government's role is to defend the natural rights of the individual at noone else's expense." You just might blow his mind! But probably not this guy.

The founders would be ashamed at us for what we are putting up with.
