2. Write letters to the editor and/or get involved in community media (community TV, radio, etc). Here, put your politics front and center. Be courteous, NEVER confrontational or personal, but get those libertarian points out there.
I can't stress the importance of this point.
So many people I've meet and talked with over the years have political views based on what they know and far too often what they know is based on the facts they were given from bias sources. When presented with facts that disagree with their views some people will become angry and/ or defensive. They will sometimes deny anything the doesn't fit their view. This is where, as Dennis points out, it's better to be courteous and never confrontational or personal. Stick to facts and arguments you can back up. You wont win everyone over but you might win a couple.
Letters to the editor, public access TV shows, blogs etc are all great ways to get your message out there. In my personal opinion, media that isn't typically followed by people who agree with you is the best medium to use otherwise you'd be just preaching to the choir.
Has anyone begun taking advantage of the patch online newspaper?
