Whether that is a more important question or not is beside the point.
It is a different question.  Maybe you could have more votes, deciding
the relative percentages spent on various things, or you can just
elect people to make those decisions.  I don't know.

However, I think it is quite reasonable that in certain situations, it
may be useful to vote on a numerical value, independent of other
issues.  Maybe there could be a vote on what the legal drinking age
is, or what the maximum speed limit is, or how much to pay the
sheriff, or how many cats are allowed to live in a single apartment,
or how much to charge for a fishing license.

I suppose you could bring in all kinds of things to complicate things,
but that seems rather counterproductive unless your intention was to
miss the point I was getting at.
