“Regardless of which side of the political divide you’re on, everyone would agree that the America we’ve all known, the democracy that has enriched it and been a beacon to the world, is now at risk. David Ellison has formulated a solution. Not a way back to where we were but forward, to the “more perfect union” our nation’s founders envisioned. Well researched, thoughtful, and centric, this book provides straightforward and overdue ‘fixes’ to strengthen our institutions, heal our country and get us back on track to our originating ideals.”
