I don't think Schwarzenegger would be very believable, unless he really
uses Free Software, which I doubt.

Maybe it would also be a good idea to collect material, books, films, 
music, etc., where Free Software already plays a positive role.

I was fascinated by the book "Little Brother" by Cory Doctorow, where the
GNU/Linux system plays a major part (although it's just called "Linux").

P.S.: Okay, I admit it, I just listened to the audio book. ;-)
