Taxation for Not Voting

The Alliance of Davis

I believe that if you don't want to vote that you should not be worthy of decent taxes. One year without voting without an official excuse is a one year tax raise in The Constitutional Monarchy of The Alliance of Davis.

Then you are an idiot. How can a country be called free when I don't have the freedom to not vote. Why is freedom of expression somehow more important than freedom of not expressing an opinion. Forcing everyone to vote would only mean that those who don't care would vote for people without doing any prior research into their policies

Eugh, no.

If your politicians are so piss-poor that nobody cares about voting any more, I don't see why the general public need be punished for that.
