OK.., so i got your attention... :D

 

 

First,...., Its easy to argue the right to vote comes from property rights, but i will not go there in this post, there is nice mises video on this.

 

I wanted to present the Swiss direct referenda system.., citizens cant make laws themselves (would be cumbersome for 3 million or even 200.000 to have a town hall meeting and draft laws)... But Swiss can knock down laws they dont like or ask to have a law drafted by government (which would need in turn need to pass a nullification referenda).

 

Anyway, I wanted to present some referenda campaigns (photos from Zurich Kanton and Bernd kanton) ie. Kanton=State (kindof).

 

Citizens argue the issue, (strike down a -proposal- law or not). and then people get to vote.

 

Billboard advocating raising taxes on the rich (1% capital tax). stricken down by 75% of the population... proposed by the socialist segment of society.
