For citizens who are working diligently to sustain themselves and their families, political parties are doing a disservice. We need better standards for party platforms and candidate manifestos. That is the quest of which I am embarking now.
As with the case with How to Select an American President (c) 2017 Archway Publishing, readers are telling me that it is fascinating, on the one hand, and frightening on the other. The historical analysis is interesting and thorough. The frightening part comes from how little we citizens know about our jobs in selecting Presidential candidates. Scarier still is realizing how little many candidates know about what it takes to manage the federal government enterprise.
Yet, it is possible to organize vital information that citizens need to know about parties and their candidates so that it is much easier to digest. I will demonstrate how to accomplish that with examples and critique.
Slaying another dragon.
