630: Selling Libertarianism at the Thanksgiving Dinner Table

Do you have family members who believe in big government, who think that taxes are good and that they're paying into a system that helps everyone? How do you convince them otherwise?


Do you have family members who believe in big government, who think that taxes are good and that they're paying into a system that helps everyone? How do you convince them otherwise? Do you try to educate them on all the ways that government harms people through its programs and policies, or do you just tell them about how it's stealing from them?
