Musing: Remember, remember, the 5th of November...

So, this isn't even my own country's holiday, but how could I not love it?  Conspiracy.  Treason.  Rebellion.  A really fancy movie that I love to watch every November the fifth.  

Happy Guy Fawkes' Day, or V for Vendetta day, everyone!  On the eve of the American election, it seems more important than ever.  Who are you voting for?  What are you voting for?  What kind of country do you want to see when you wake up on Wednesday?  

The people should not be afraid of their government. The government should be afraid of its people. 
- V 

This November the fifth, think about November the sixth.  Think about the divisions we make across invisible lines.  Think about whether you're voting for people you believe in or whether you're checking off boxes with a D or an R.  

That is the end of my rambling quasi-political statement.  Go watch some dystopian action.  And before you check those boxes, remember what you're voting for...and what you're not.
