“THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN” is one of the most trite adages you will ever come across, uninformed people only babble. For a democracy to be effective its citizens have to be well educated so they have such mental tools and skillsets like being able to think critically about issues they have informed themselves of as completely as possible ignoring nothing that may be relevant and then choosing what is best for the community.
A mob of self centered, unthinking, gullible, bigoted ignoramuses do not speak, they howl.
