democracy doesn't work. it can be rigged, bribed, cheated and distorted. usually, when someone says that, others think hes a communist/fascist and likes dictatorship, or oligarchy. not true... the best type of government is 'dollar democracy' where governments are privatized. before you start to condemn, use your brain and think about it for a few seconds. can it work?

Yes please explain exactly what it is you are proposing, then i will give my thoughts. I have never heard of dollar democracy, and I am not sure I would want my government privatized. But please elaborate a bit more.

Sorry but I don't have understood right, but what do you intend for "dollar democracy"? Who would have the power in your ideal world? I think democracy is still the better form of governement, at least the less bad. IMHO we have to work to make a real democracy instead of trying other forms of governement.
