Politzoid Election Day Edition: Will you sit with the drones or carry the torch?

America's constitutional liberties had to be won with blood, sweat and bullets more than 200 years ago because then there was no other way to throw off the shackles of tyranny. Today, we accomplish the same kind of revolution, but peacefully with ballots instead of bullets.

There is nothing so revolutionary as a people with the right to vote as individual citizens to choose their leaders. Today is a revolutionary day.

As Politizoid's latest episode makes clear, the basic question for you when you enter the voting booth is which side are you on, with those sitting quietly in the crowd, nodding on cue and accepting whatever they're told as “truth,” or with the torch carriers who refuse to sit down and shut up?
