Let's imagine for a minute that today's (relatively) free market for restaurant food was suspended, and that we started to use a democratic solution instead.  What would the ballot look like?  Well first of all, with direct democracy there'd be McDonald's, Burger King, and KFC on the ballot for sure.  Maybe you'd find a Chinese restaurant, or anyone for Thai, Indian or fish & chips?  OK, in any case only those who put up a deposit would be allowed a place on this ballot.  Now guess who would win?  Umm, would it be Tweedle Dee or Tweedle Dum?  I guess the favorite would have to be Macca's right, mate?  But remember that just because you didn't vote for McDonald's doesn't mean you wouldn't have to eat it every night for the next say, four years!  Not to mention the price could be doubled or the portions halved anytime.  Hey, if you don't like it, you can always vote for Burger King next time!  Wow - isn't democracy wonderful!
 
Now let's quickly look at the system we have now - representative democracy.  You pick politicians to tell you the restaurant where you must eat.  If you "win", the majority of the politicians tells you where to eat.  And if you lose, the same people tell you where to eat.  Let's face it, you don't have the ability to make such an important decision yourself.  But the election ritual, by God's direct intervention in the process, ensures that you get the best food that your divine right rulers can force-feed you.
