Direct Democracy..A Tail of Irony

Funny I can't help but think of how shocked we dems were when Al Gore won the popular vote in 2000, but lost the election due to delegate allotment. These things happen every once in a while and demonstrate the utter sham of representative democracies. These elaborate facades filled with the superrich and designed to control the will of the people or direct democracies.
Now it's 2008. Once again a slight majority of the people supported one candidate, but the system so designed to recode the errors, changed the results.
Does the end (disenfranchisement of voters in two states,character assassinations, misogyny, ignoring popular vote) justify the means?
