Really? How can that be the case where people without money have zero votes and people with more dollars can effectively prevent people with fewer dollars from voting at all (e.g. in regulated housing markets)?

Anarchy is the ONLY way capitalism can exist.

And capitalism is an all or nothing venture. There are no levels of purity.

On a national level there is some truth to what you say. At the individual level it is false, capitalism exists even in the most socialist of states. Capitalism can be subdued but never vanquished.

The United States of America does not employ pure democracy. We are officially a republic.

WORKING? But that is positively UNAMERICAN in the 21st Century. The government will provide. Nobody should have to work and education, health care and cell phones should be free. Also cars. And gas.

You aren't able to vote? There are folks outside the polling place checking net worth and stopping people from casting their vote? Who knew.
