Miami-Dade County residents are clearly against the scheme to have tax money pay for the Dolphins’ business investment. There will be a vote in May, and an effort is underway to reeducate the people. The assumption is that regular folks are not very smart or not as smart as our politicians and community business boosters.
Guess what? The people are smart and informed. This vote, clothed as some lovely exercise in democracy, is really a cynical attempt to get beyond the will of the public. The Dolphins and their supporters are hoping to get out the Yes vote driven by boosters and political machines and want the rest of us to stay home.
Don’t! Get out. Vote No!
