That free market principles are one of the few things that stops others from jumping on board.

The free market scares weak people. How do you make them understand? Make sure you understand it pretty well yourself, buy them some coffee, and be prepared to combat every "what if" or "what about x,y,z" scenario they come up with.

They also always say "well look where capitalism has gotten us so far (silly liberals think this is free market capitalism)," explain to them that we are not living in the age of a free market.

It is not impossible, it can be hard but it is not impossible. Flipping liberals is so easy until it comes to the free market... then they just get scared and confused and they want to feel safe and warm. That is why coffee helps.
