Two things, in a future Republic all that liberal wealth would be redistributed, and a billionaire wouldn't have any additional votes compared to a person of humbler means. You pay property taxes you get a vote along with it. In a fairly run system most people that wanted a home and worked would have a home, at least by the time they were twenty-five. Soldiers would be counted as property owners.
