You neglect to mention that if the government was truly limited in it power as was intended by the constitution....the government could not be bought. It would have no value of power for the people of wealth to purchase and exploit.

Amazon Throwing the Book at Publishers

I'm not really sure how a company controlling 40% of book distribution stifles sales. Isn't there another 60% of the market available if a book is really good and has word-of-mouth promotion. So basically what you're after is the publishers controlling the marketplace, if they think they can do it better then they should start their own avenue for selling books. They would then be able to charge anything they like.
Not quite exactly right, back in the day you had to own land to vote and the amount of representation was based on population. So in the south southern democrats owned all the land but had a bunch of slaves that didn't so the slaves couldn't vote but the south was given more power in congress because of the number of slaves. The only reason they were even counted as 3/5 of a person was to limit the disproportionate amount of power slave owners could have.
