More About This Book

Overview

Like an aging monument, democracy itself is crumbling.

An ever increasing government threatens both freedom and a financial collapse.

• Judges are acting more like kings themselves than interpreters of the law

• Redisticting, voter fraud, campaign finance controls, and an uninformed electorate threaten the integrity of elections.

• The values that made America the greatest country in the world are being supplanted.

• Government's attempts to make people's lives better often have the opposite effect

What is causing this decay? What can we do?

Preserving Democracy was written to answer these questions.

Elgin Hushbeck, Jr. defends American constitutional government by:

1. focusing on specific ideas rather than personalities,
2. being ideologically sharp, yet non-partisan in tone
3. using clear and simple, but never simplistic, arguments.

Are you equipped for the task of Preserving Democracy?

When the Founding Fathers formed the United States, they created, in Lincoln's words, "the last best hope of earth." Over the last hundred years we have vastly changed the country they gave us, and are continuing to make changes. But with the state of education in the country, how many really understand the dangers of democracy the Founding Father understood so well, dangers that caused them to create the system of checks and balances? When we make changes are we removing deadwood no longer needed, or removing key foundational supports? Preserving Democracy looks at a number of troubling trends that if not addressed, could cause the American democratic experiment to fail, as all prior attempts at democracy have failed.
