    No. They had no clue what they were voting for. That's the only possible explanation for why the progressives lost that election. There is no possible way the people just might not support them. The only possible way for them to have lost is that the people are just too stupid to know what they are doing.

    Logically, with the people too stupid to make decisions, we need to put our trust in the intellectuals of society and the common man shouldn't be able to vote. And by intellectual, they mean themselves. Wow, what a shocker!

    Let's just hope these supposedly brilliant people who can't even seem to vote for their issues correctly, can lead us to a new age of glory. And let's hope all of us peasants can eat their scraps and keep up!

    Another try by the elite to make the case that people are to stupid to be allowed to vote.

    Of course they knew what they were voting for.

    People are trying to make the same argument for Prop C in Missouri (health care freedom act). It's just a sour grapes explanation to come to grips with the fact that a majority of people voted against one's own beliefs.
