Description

The campaign for the 2008 presidential election raised the hopes of many Americans. Not only were they elated by the outcome, but many also considered that the process had worked better than it had in recent years. While author Ken Konecnik agrees with some of these evaluations, his view of the manner by which we elect our presidents remains critical. In Democracy Rising, Konecnik peers into every corner of the electoral operation, and doesnt like what he sees. The list of culprits begins with advertising, and runs through the Internet, the media, the two-party system, the electoral college system, and an American populace that is all too often apathetic about exercising its franchise. Offering examples from American history along with ideas on how the nation can return to some of the principles of the Founding Fathers, Konecnik gives voice to the hope that America will soon witness Democracy Rising.show more
