someone help me understand please Explain how the example paragraph above illustrates either-or fallacy and why that fallacy makes the argument weak. Slow down! Light rail may be the best thing for Phoenix or the worst. The point is, we don't know. Let's take our time in making this multibillion dollar decision. After all, which would you rather be responsible for, revolutionizing our commute system or funding a mobile homeless shelter? Join me in giving city planners more time to analyze whether Phoenix is the place for light rail. Vote "No."

Ok! I know what to do! You see, an either/or fallacy is when someone says that a certain situation can only end in two scenarios, when that is moat CERTAINLY not true. It's like saying that the only way to stop world hunger is to promote obesity. So what they want you to do is to find that fallacy in this argument.
