As far as the EU goes, if thats what they want, have at it I say. But I don't think its a model we should adapt for ourselves.
I'm not big on nationalism, to the point where I think it needs to be upheld no matter what, but I support it enough in that I recognize that there are several other types of government I would not want to live under, just to satiate the desire that we all live under one world rule.

The net amount of pecuniary benefits one receives in the form of government services as a proportion of tax revenue they produce over their lifetime.What is it to be based upon?
FY 1 - John Smith receives $5,000 in the form of unemployment checks and produces nothing in the form of tax revenue. Mr. Smith is indebted to society in the amount of $5,000, consequently his voting privileges are revoked until such a time as his debt is repaid.
FY 2 - John Smith produces $4,000 in tax revenue. Mr. Smith is indebted to society in the amount of $1,000, consequently his voting privileges are revoked until such a a time as his debt is repaid.
FY 3 - John Smith produces $5,000 in tax revenue. Mr. Smith has created a surplus of revenue in the amount of $4,000, consequently his voting privileges are renewed until such a time when he is indebted to society.

I don't think voting should be based on anything other than being a citizen and not convicted of a felony.
All that would come of this is tyranny of one group over another.
Taxes used as a weapon against the poor. Again this is a really bad idea.
