I like to substitute other words for the Government...... and then in disagreements with liberals I say things like........ Oh, you want your neighbors and friends to pay for your cell phone? Whenever you think about the government forcing you to do something or the government giving you something for nothing, just substitute "your friends" or "your church memebers" or "your enemies" or anyone else for that matter. Because that is what government is all those people agreeing to some extent to pay for, to force you, to give you, etc. As for me and my house, we prefer liberty.

You might enjoy this one:

I’m a libertarian in part because I see a false choice offered by the political left and right: government control of the economy -- or government control of our personal lives.

People on both sides think of themselves as freedom lovers. The left thinks government can lessen income inequality. The right thinks government can make Americans more virtuous. I say we’re best off if neither side attempts to advance its agenda via government.

Let both argue about things like drug use and poverty, but let no one be coerced by government unless he steals or attacks someone....
