Policy Fallacy 007: Eponymous Anonymous

In this episode, Rex (returned from sequester!) and Joe vote on what happens when you switch to a secret ballot. Then they imagine a world where the government makes you use your real name when you do stuff like post snarky comments about a podcast on the internet.
