Description

In America, the world's first modern democracy, we have abandoned the Monroe Doctrine in favor of establishing a military presence in more than a hundred nations around the world. While the United States has earned the dubious honor of being the world's largest debtor, the Pentagon has become, as the late Senator William Proxmire described it, a supermarket with no checkout counters. "Direct Democracy: Returning Government to the People" takes a hard look at our country's problems, examining why a once-great symbol of freedom has generated so much hatred that people will sacrifice their lives in terrorist acts against us. Questioning the motives of those politicians who resort to aggressive warfare as a means of settling disputes, Carlton Laird proposes steps we can take to regain control of our own financial and political systems.show more
