On non-binding votes

Excellent editorial on so-called "non-binding" referenda.

"There there's no such thing as a non-binding vote," you wrote.

Thanks a lot for stealing my thunder.

Politicians love to claim a town-wide vote is non-binding "so don't worry about it."

As you wrote, if it's non-binding then why hold the vote because either way the politicians will make it fit their plan.
