Why can't Canadians elect their government by designating their tax dollars to Party X or Party Y etc. The Party with the most revenue is the ruling Party the next down the line would be coalition Party #2 and so on. If you pay taxes you get your say, pay no taxes and you have no voice. Every Party would control some of the revenue and all would have a stake in the operation of our country. Lobbyists would be outlawed. Political contributions would be outlawed. All spending would be absolutely accessible by everyone. We would never need another election.
In much of the world, the common people fought long and hard not to be governed by kings and nobles. A principle and rallying call was "one man, one vote" (this was before women's franchise became generally accepted).
