Does Your Vote Matter?

As we get ready to elect another president in 2016, the political world is rapt with the circus-like spectacle of the presidential primary season.

Some candidates promise a brighter future for the country. Others promise merely to level the gap between rich and poor.

Yet, with all the sound and fury, will ordinary Americans find their interests served when the process finally runs its course?

Have Carl on to talk about any or all of the following topics:

  • What recent opinion polls reveal about the growing divide between government and the people
  • Why more Americans than ever feel their vote doesn’t matter
  • Why the major political parties hold the key to restoring our constitutional system
  • The 2016 presidential race, recent polls, and people’s reaction to the candidates
  • Why third party candidacies fail
  • Why term limits don’t work
  • Why amending the Constitution isn’t the answer
  • How current efforts to abolish the Electoral College endanger our country
  • What “The United States of Dysfunction” is really about
  • Three ways the current presidential primary process hurts our country
  • The critical difference between democracy and self-government
  • Why elections aren’t enough to secure individual rights and freedoms
  • What is needed to restore faith in the American political system
