I guess you actually have to explain the dynamics of personal liberty in the United States that many liberals have forgotten or never learned:

In the United States we expect political authorities to rule on behalf of our interests, not by imposing the values of others on us.

No doubt that having experienced and been victimized by the nanny state, a new generation will understand the need to check this kind of political control nationwide.
