Most of you have not finished reading my new book, How to Select an American President by James A. George with James A. Rodger (c) 2017 Archway Publishing. It is vitally relevant now as it will be for years to come for you and your children.
The process of improving the American political system requires arduous work. Garnering participation by citizens like you is imperative.
I am working on another book in the series that addresses what I call, the US President's manifesto.
While reading the platforms of Democratic and Republican parties, it is impossible not to note the vastly different substance, style, and strategy. To make an apples-to-apples comparison is nearly impossible without establishing a common reference point. I am working on that.
Republicans declared: "Our goal is not just less spending in Washington but something far more important for the future of our nation: protecting the constitutional rights of citizens, sustainable prosperity, and strengthening the American family."
Republicans made their effort about how Democrats and the government sought to undermine Constitutional rights. On the other hand, the actions by Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress are selectively impugning those rights.
Optimizing the return on national resources should be the subject and focus. Yet, many of the present government actions are ideology-driven and miss the point about achieving essential outcomes.
News, today by NBC's Adam Howard, says that a Trump backlash might pave the way for women to have a stronger voice. Protests are one thing, establishing an organized response with leadership and substance is a long way to go.

President Donald Trump's victory may have galvanized conservatives and struck fear in the hearts of his political foes, but it has also inspired a whole new generation of women to seek elected office in droves.
Since his election, Emily's List, a political action committee which recruits and promotes pro-choice, Democratic women candidates, has reported that over 4,000 women across the country have sought guidance from them on running for office. For some perspective, that's quadruple the number of requests they got over the past 22 months combined, with 1,660 appeals from would-be candidates coming in since Inauguration Day."
