Yep - heard like a Democrat in Texas

The red pass isn't an option for about 30% of the population. I read in 20 min recently that Zurich dropped the price to 250 francs for eligible 2nd generation immigrants under 21. Only 5% of them took the offer. Perhaps for 95% of them the price (in terms of continued military service/civil service/extra tax payments) was too high.

True, the ability to vote would make me slightly happier, but it's not on the cards for me at the moment, and if it were, the price (in terms of civic obligation would be too much). Ok, I'd better go off and back my bags in that case. It's been nice knowing you all.
