My Book - Saving Democracy:  The 2016 Presidential Election:  An American Watershed

Available in paperback and Kindle editions.


Saving Democracy is based on a deep belief in democracy, a faith in the basic goodness of ordinary people and in their infinite creativity and resilience.  It is about calling up the American Spirit and renewing faith in the American Dream.

A new perspective on politics in the United States.

  • What went so wrong?
  • How did we ever get to this point?
  • How do we begin to deal with it?
  • Democracy as an alternative.
  • What new focus will make that happen?

Saving Democracy is made more accessible because of story telling and metaphor.  Check out the Perspective sections with titles like:  “The American Oz”, “The Town”, “The Castle”, “The Wall” and “Learning to Spell”.

All aboard! This is an American Watershed moment. It is a time for a system change, from neoliberal economics to a more humanized and sustainable democratic system.

We are at the train station and must decide on the Dystopian Express to an unsustainable future or the Democracy Local to a inclusive, sustainable and humanized future.
