Of course I was being somewhat facetious, Mark - hence the smilie after the comment. But in truth, everyone wants something different from their government, especially when a need is not being fullfilled. One fantasy solution I have toyed with is to have a single-pay system when it comes to taxes. Then let the taxpayer, once the tax is computed, determine the percentage of the tax which would go to each gubbamint bureau. I would venture to guess that more social programs would be funded than are now and that the Pentagon would have to resort to telethons, bake sales, and car washes to raise the money it wanted.
