Anyway my point is that you are correct that we are no longer represented. I had posted what I thought to be a better idea than this though. I suggested that government be strictly voluntary. That means that you pay however much in taxes that you want and therefore decide where it goes. So an example would be that local government could issue requests for taxes from local citizens. They would give breakdowns on how much to give to police, fire, roads, parks, etc.... They would post results online so people could see what was running short of requested amounts. So if you don't like police or bailouts then you give no money to either. If you think schools and parks are more important you could give more money than requested to those.
This would completely circumvent the concept of government forcibly taking money from you literally at gunpoint and then you having to beg to not be abused by the money that was stolen from you. I see no way that we can give anyone the power to take money from us and not have that eventually become corrupt. It seems counter-intuitive to me.
