Our money buys us a democratic system. How the system really works is another 
matter. The first thing you learn in pol sci is that an elite class usually 
runs a national state. In our case it's the corporations. If that elite is 
creative and has a sense of obligation to the society, everyone benefits. If that 
elite is corrupt and drains the society of its talent and natural resources, 
it and the society isn't long for this world. The USSR is a recent classic 
example of this bankruptcy of leadership and an elite that couldn't grasp that 
ideology is poison. What works for the majority is the best ideology. Bill 
Clinton was a pragmatist and cajoled the corporations into pulling their horns. Give 
that man an engraved Leica.
