I too have thought about this, I think a best system would be to have a summary of both topics. Then a voter should be required to complete a quiz that explains the sides of both arguments to make sure that they completely understand prior to voting. Most people are generally apathetic and just go with whatever they hear from other people with a similar background, our media is no longer objective.
These people are capable of so much more, but they are victims of a culture that their ancestors created. People in others countries are much happier with much less, America is a country that honors above all else that which makes us unhappy, our ego.
