Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door. Make sure the path is a long, narrow, and winding one, and that there is no parking anywhere near it, and the world will keep buying the old mousetrap featured conveniently at the suburban mall hardware store.
A thoughtful merchant would locate his store near a big, well-traveled road and include several acers of parking. A socialist greenie city councilman or woman would try to make this illegal. A forward-looking entrepreneur would note this and avoid locating in such an area. An old, established merchant would be thinking of buying ads that go:"Drive a little, save a lot. Visit our new location just outside the city limits!"
An electorate that could see past next week would be voting the dingbat out.
