Warning to Zach Paikin: I Stood Up to My Party and Paid a Price

The costs of speaking up are immediate and enormous. If you are not a "party person," you might not get it. But everyone can understand, in general, how powerful social shunning can be. You are instantly defriended, held in contempt, branded disloyal, and considered stupid, reckless and unpatriotic. Calling out your own team, is a stand taken at a very high price indeed.
