Every few years, American voters get fed up and "throw the bums out." One party sweeps to victory on promises of "change" or "getting government off our backs." Such monumental electoral changes swept the country in 2008. And 1994. And 1980. And 1968. But amid all this change, the one thing that never actually does change is the one thing we imagine we're changing—government. We throw the bums out—and throw another bunch of bums in. We vote for smaller government—and government gets even bigger. We vote for less spending, and spending soars. In other words: no matter who we vote for, the government gets elected. "It's hopeless," we tell ourselves. "There's not a damn thing we can do to change anything." But that sort of cynicism simply just plays into the system. There are alternatives to the failed methods of good citizenship, and that's what this book is about. Let freedom activist Claire Wolfe show you how to use a bad attitude to effect real change: Bypassing politics entirely to get things done and preserve your freedoms Keeping politicians and bureaucrats in their place—and out of yours Halting the increased militarization of police Choosing between creative disregard and civil disobedience Assessing the necessity of elections in society The goal of Claire's unconventional brand of political action is to generate a momentum of individual independence around the country, at the same time as government-as-usual engineers its own doom by being oppressive and unresponsive. There may not be a sea change at first, but as more and more citizens become fed up with the status quo and find cause within the freedom movement, change could come bullet-train fast. "Claire Wolfe is one of the great revolutionaries of our time. . . . The Bad Attitude Guide makes a great gift—it is a unique book and a unique perspective." ––Brian Wilson, Radio Show Host

Political observers routinely lament that American democracy is broken, and many of them blame electoral malfunction. But is the system really broken? Panagopoulos and Weinschenk make the case that citizens are empowered to fix what’s wrong with electoral politics and renew democracy in America, all within the institutional setup and framework of the existing system. Put simply, much of what is broken can be fixed if people stop throwing up their arms and start rolling up their sleeves to do the hard work of building our democracy. This book provides an overview of the basic features that characterize contemporary elections in the United States and includes discussions about voter participation and decision-making patterns, money in elections, and the role of parties and the media in presidential, congressional and state and local races. It also outlines some of the most important trends and challenges in the current system. As a call to action, each chapter features potential solutions to the challenges that exist in U.S. elections.
