Hi from Amsterdam,
Occupy here does not have that impressive masses like you guys (yet?), but if you look statisticly holland is pretty active as well. And that is because it is a very american way kind of country, new amsterdam... good slogan.. occupy new amsterdam.
anyway that is not my point.
We pay a little less than fifty percent income tax.
that is pretty confronting not even counted the rediculous costs of health insurance (what wont cover shit and even make you pay money) and other added fees attached by law to our lives. The 99 So I was thinking, what about a system that as a citisen you can just arange how much tax you want to pay to which ministry.
Like a percentage spreader (for example online) where you can suport with your own money, the ministery you like to suport.
Like that you hit democracy very well I think
And than of course lower the taxes haha, because this is just a joke (of a system)
Support the ministery you like to support or you like to have voice!! education,immigration, infrastructure, natur or whatever!
What do you guys think??? I had to write it down because it just really inspires me!
