"I wouldn't mind compulsory voting, but I'm really not sure anything but public campaign funding can fix the problem."
That doesn't really work either unfortunately. It was tried in Portland, Oregon a few years back. Most of the candidates didnt have a chance to win, and they basically just took the money and ran. Taxpayers got hosed.
Maybe don't do illegal stuff? Whether or not you think certain laws are just, not breaking them seems to be the easiest way to stay out of jail. Obviously, there are a large majority of citizens who manage to do just that.
