I’ve heard it after almost every election. Someone asks why “people vote against their own best interests?” I understand the sentiment, but I wonder if people realize just how arrogant and condescending that statement is.

Everyone votes for what they think is in their own best interest, whether it turns out to be true or not. Remember, people don’t vote for what is in your best interest but in theirs. So if the people are voting in what they believe is in their best interest, the question we should be asking is, are they correct? If they are not correct, we should not be berating them; we should be trying to educate them.

There will always be people whose best interest is in conflict with our own. The question is, how many can we show that either what they see as the best interest isn’t, or that it may be good in the short-term, but there is a long-term pain they may not have considered.
