    You are conflating political systems and economic systems. Communism and socialism are economic systems. Democracy and dictatorial systems are political systems. Communism in its purest form, anarchist communism, is very libertarian, very democratic. Communism and socialism are economic systems. Political systems allocate power, economic systems allocate resources.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_communist_ideologies#Anarchist_communism is very democratic.

    We have witnessed capitalistic economic systems in tyrannical political systems and we have seen socialist systems in democratic political systems. The best political systems are those which are open and competitive (i.e. democratic).
    Yes, indeed, the real problem with democracies is the electoral process. In order for a democracy to thrive, it requires well-informed voters.

    Your post described the US electoral system, but it isn’t indicative of all democracies. The US once had a better electoral system, back in the days when campaign financing was limited and “The Fairness Doctrine” was the law of the land. Unfortunately, Republicans have trashed both campaign finance laws and The Fairness Doctrine.
