Our Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain, fought a war, and founded our country, largely over the issue of improper representation. Subsequently, they drafted our Constitution to better provide this representation and to place broad public interests ahead of private interests. So how are we doing today?
We’ll discuss why large numbers of Americans feel we have major, well documented, problems with the structure and financing of our political system that combine to result in improper representation of broad citizen interests by Congress.
You’ll each be loaned iClicker devices to record and present collective audience responses about the following and more:
- What current practices prevent proper representation?
- How serious is the threat?
- What is the best strategy for reform?
- What must effective reforms include?
We all have an interest in getting this right, so please come and participate.
