You can tell people they are stupid for watching TV

Or you can find the few good examples available and show why liberty is important in a friendly way.

Insulting others and making fun of their bad habits isn't going to make them want to like liberty. Doing so will only make them resent you and seek to justify themselves.

Libertarians can continue to search for theatrical victories of logic and those Libertarians will continue to fail, lose elections, and make enemies.

Wouldn't it be better to relate to people and make them want to support freedom? Would more people vote Libertarian if they were insulted and teased or if they were kindly shown how freedom is good through things they are interested in?

Most people are bored by politics but they might be more interested if shown the few good examples from Hollywood. I am certain teasing most Americans isn't winning any friends to liberty.

The individual who refuses to defend his rights when called by his Government, deserves to be a slave, and must be punished as an enemy of his country and friend to her foe. - Andrew Jackson
