The will of the people apparently is to be ruled and screwed over by a small bunch of rich people. Oligarchy and plutocracy are not necessarily incompatible with democracy.

That's simply not true. Representative democracy is just a way of deciding who to give power to. Just because the people decide to give power to the wrong people don't make it any less of a democracy. In most democracies, and in the US more than others, the people decide to give power to a small bunch of rich people that have a history of screwing them over. Denying responsibility for this is like saying a woman that repeatedly goes for bad boys can't help being abused. You have what in practice is an oligarchy and plutocracy, mandated by a democracy.
