America’s Democracy Betrayed: Solutions to Fight Back is a no-nonsense guide that condenses more than a decade of research into an honest look at US politics from an educator’s perspective. This book breaks down the intentionally-complex terms and euphemisms used by the US government and political forums making them easier to understand for all citizens.
Dr. Martingano provides simple, yet effective, solutions, consistent with the US Constitution, and too many hot-button national issues—allowing readers to become informed and empowered to decipher fact from fantasy. Words have meaning in our political system, but without a clear understanding of their intent, decision-making is futile.
If “history always repeats itself,” then understanding past historical events along with current political policies is a prerequisite to preserving our democracy. Without understanding the reasons for our beginnings, we too will become nothing more than a footnote in democracy’s playbook.
