The key is education. I feel similarly about people getting involved at GOP county meetings. I want everyone to get involved. The problem with that is inviting too many "weak-freedom" folks- They might be too easily swayed by neo-con thought, overcome by fear. That is why educating folks is key. We are a Republic, not a Democracy. Freedom is not up for debate, but we can spread the message and teach those willing to listen.
I'm trying to get better at detaching emotionally from debates. Getting frustrated with an ignorant person is easy to do. It is better, though, to just state the message and if they get it, good, and if not, then oh well. You can lead a horse to water...
I've also been talking a lot about fear lately. I believe that fear is the vehicle in which all liberty is lost. If we truly and honestly believe in liberty, no fear can take it from us, because a free people will always prevail.
The founders would be ashamed at us for what we are putting up with.
