At some point, government has got to be accountable.

Here in Quebec, we have perhaps the highest tax burden in North America, and it appears we are using a lot of that money to line the pockets of all too many of our elected leaders.  Tax and development experts have long argued that if you could only get the masses paying taxes, they will demand their governments be accountable to them for how those taxes are used (this has been the argument for salient taxes like the VAT, which everyone feels the pain of daily).  This shameful abuse of taxpayers ought to get people into the streets banging pots.
