As we all know we live in a highly technological society. And i think we should keep moving democracy forward.
What do you think about this idea: Instead of election you have an account on the "government" where you can log in. Here you can enter several sections the two biggest would be the economy and the proposition section.
In the economy section you can freely place your tax-money where you please, and discuss and vote for different economical policies. If you are on the school board or hospital board for you can ask for more money and directly tell why you need it to the public.
In the proposition section you can read and add new propositions for which the public gets to vote. There should be an added discussion section to each proposition, a section with media relevant and scientific research relevant to this proposition.
If a person wishes to "vote" one can always choose a representative in one or several areas or different representatives in one or several areas. But always with the right to change ones decision.
I see several pitfalls of this system, but like all systems there is pitfalls. One problem are would be if people sell votes but thats illegal today so I don't see that as a problem.
As far as corporations go they might wanna place there tax-money freely as well and doing so the could severely damage or give big disadvantages to areas that have lower tax ratings or let you dump toxic waste and so on. If they should have that right is surely up for debate and should be put to a vote, but I would argue that people have rights and corporations don't so people should have the right to place their tax money.
