414 Grant Street: Drink Tax Foes Turned Back!: "Drink Tax Foes Turned Back!"
What was turned away: peace.
My statement at another blog:
It is seldom a good idea to silence the voice of the people.
When people can't vote -- they have a way of making their opinions known in other forms and avenues -- often less peaceful.
As trust in government declines, fewer vote. Votes matter less as well. The opportunity for a peaceful revolution gets set aside and bricks look more righteous.
That's no victory to me.
