I think with the advancement in technology, the way our government is structured needs to be re-examined.
Gone are the days I need a representative in Ottawa to speak on my behalf. We don't need more government as the population grows, just more efficient government that lets it's population decide on important issues and doesn't waste tax-payer money advertising and throwing large sums of money around for votes.
Which vote can I cast which could possibly result in fewer politicians, not more? I dare say none, as they are happy to vote themselves raises, even if they can't balance budgets and get us further in debt that hardworking taxpayers will have to pay off eventually?
It almost feels like there is no point in voting. That's why poll numbers are low and only improve when people are upset enough with their current leaders.
