Why is just promising a bunch of free stuff not considered buying votes?

You're legally not allowed to say I'll pay you a $100 to vote for me but your allowed to say vote for me and I'll give you $500 a month in universal basic income How is this not buying votes? Democracy is such a failure of a system when everyone votes that's like asking a homeless person how to live your life and seriously doing what they say.
