    That would be amazing! I feel so frustrated knowing a part of my salary goes to killing and torture. I control my personal finances; why can't our government listen to how we ALL think finances/resources should be distributed?

    And "voting" as it is structured in democracies doesn't account for this. The personal issue of "like/dislike" for individual politicians has made us too polarized to look at the actual ideas that large portions of us agree on, or should debate more. Most democratic citizens never vote ("opt in" system) because they are fed up with popularity contests; but the vast majority of citizens in the U.S. and Europe DO pay taxes - and without much protest! The disconnect and lack of control is startling, once you become aware of it.

    The whole budget for military hardware should come from voluntary contributions.
