    This situation is more about educating people to make a better choice when voting next time.

    If you have a majority who say, “No, we want to do it this way!”, you really have to just step back and say, “OK fine, go for it.”, knowing that its chance of success is less than questionable. That is the downside of democracy.

    Unfortunately people have to actually feel the pain to be convinced they were wrong and it takes a while for that pain to sink in and for the person to realize who caused the pain. (We have met the enemy and he is us.)

    A significant issue is the long term damage caused by these ill-advised choices. The only consolation here is that people are more likely to remember longer the mistake that they made because we all know that it is the human condition to repeat our mistakes.

    The bright light at the end of the tunnel is a more rational electorate, at least for a while.
