OK, here's the thing about a Democracy: Sooner or later you're not going to get your way. Happens to everyone sooner or later.
When it does you can whine and moan and demonstrate and write flaming letters to the editor, and call your representative, and just generally carry on until the next election.
Then we start all over again.
If you think this is messy and inefficient, you're right. It's what we call the process. See Democracy is not a noun, it's a verb.
What you can't do is shoot people when you don't get your way.
Please make a note of this.
