Overview

Politics Beyond Left and Right: A Guide for Creating a More Unified Nation by David A. Ellison

Politics Beyond Left and Right is a call for nonpartisan leadership from our government, and a call for only electing federal officials that will honor the wishes of the 60% to 80% of us who believe in a federal government that is smaller and more fiscally responsible than what Democrats prefer, but more socially accepting than what Republicans prefer – the government, I believe, our Founders envisioned, and the one we need in order to become a more unified nation.

This provocative text covers a variety of subjects including education, racism, income inequality, taxes, term limits, immigration, abortion, gay/lesbian rights, and some history lessons. Copies of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution are included because I believe that our citizens’ understanding of these two precious documents is important in our country’s unification process.
