Look, America is a plutocracy, but there is a legal foundation for the establishment of democracy. These retarded anarchists with their notions of voting as an act of oppression have rationalized themselves into a corner, too concerned with being clever to realize that they are undermining the real struggle for a better world.
You anarchists know nothing about human nature, a society cannot work without leaders, homo sapiens are not as evolved as you would like them to be. From chaos, a leader will always emerge to lead the sheep, from coups and violent revolution a new oppressor eventually rears its head and get's drunk on power and it's the same shit all over again. You will be faced with being part of a civil, social or political body with leaders, whether they are dictators or facilitators. So why not raise your fucking hand when asked who you want steer the ship? Write in someone you know personally, or run for office yourself... use your imagination.
A democracy is the most logical form of social organization, mainly because it is fair and has the greatest likelihood of working, but before you go and smash the state, why don't think about how we can make democracy work? There is a difference between constructive and destructive action, and much of autonomous anarchist energy does the movement credit, but we should never forget strategy. If it really isn't about the individual will-to-power, like some state-smashers claim, than channel your rage in a way where you can win support for your ideals, not alienate the fence-sitters. You may not get the same level of instant gratification, but your drop in the bucket will be larger. That's what it means to be part of a movement, to be collective.
In a working democracy, you might not get your own way or get to inhale the glorious stench of buildings burning as you apotheosize yourself and your upright morals in the absence of sewer or drinking water infrastructure. It may not sound sexy for a generation raised on Tarantino, Quake and shocking mondo video. The real battles are bureacratic and often slow. But think, many of the people who voted in this republican congress want the same things as you (granted, some are just greedy self-entitled bastards...), what solution do you have for them to keep food on the table and their family safe and an opportunity to find pleasure in life? Tear gas and kristallnacht? Tons of people know that the logic of the eminent capitalists is a shell game, but they have to do better than being punk-ass naysayers because the progressive movement needs allies.
