Hello Ryan,

I think you may have unknowingly summed up the outcome of Election 2010 - Hamilton, in a very eloquent manner!

"If an idea is bad enough, anyone who understands how bad it is should oppose it on that basis. Believing that the idea is "inevitable" counsels the type of passivity and fatalism (or, worse, complicity) that leads to self-fulfilling prophecy."

It brilliantly sums up apathy and abstinence; blind love, strategic voting and even blind dart throwing - while it even manages to give a nod to the 12 minstrels who stood in opposition to bad ideas :-)

As yesterday's self-fulfilling prophecy begins to unfold -- your above quote should provide much solace to many in Hamilton, through its long oncoming winter.
