Why This Midterm Election Is Critical to Saving America

America’s democratic form of Constitutional republic is on the verge of breaking down because of political corruption at the highest levels and the concurrent decline in civility and growing mob behavior.

Fundamental and deep division prevents government from fixing itself. But we the people can and must play a decisive role in turning things around. In fact, a country with a Constitution that makes us a nation of the people, by the people and for the people, puts the real power in the hands of voters rather than the elites in Washington.

It is important to remember that in giving the power to the people, the Founders had no illusions about everyday Americans. They recognized that most citizens would not have the time or interest to understand the details of domestic economic policy or foreign policy. But they were confident in the common sense of the people, and that people would vote for candidates and political parties with more likelihood of delivering solutions to improve their lives. They also hoped that national elections scheduled every two years would provide an important check on irresponsibility and abuse of power in government.
