I remember reading about an idea to change the tax/budget system that might work as follows:

Each year, each voter gets a list of every government program that wants money. (perhaps available on the Internet). The voter would check the items that he agrees to fund. Each line item, i.e. war in Iraq, or US Post Office, would be funded in proportion to its support and if it fails to get enough support, it would be discontinued. Each person would only be taxed for programs he supports.
My question is -- Who first suggested this?
