And as we know "taxation without representation" pretty much sums up the lot of Americans abroad. Yeah, they can vote, but how many of their reps actually give a damn about them?

I think Swiss voting eligibility has some merit. If you want a say in what the country you're living in does, then get the citizenship. It's pretty easy to do in many countries.
Indeed, in the UK you only have to complete what is claimed to be an 85 page citizenship request form although I could only find this 31 page form
