Our taxation system is full fo **** - basing a right on who pays in and who doesn't is off the mark.
I support awareness-voting measures as well as a unified information system that's non-partisan but fact-based.

The system is faulted because it's set up to be based on popularity - which is just the wrong appraoch to take when it's something so important.
