Publisher's Summary

Pick up a newspaper and read about the Electoral College. It is a sure recipe for losing respect for the institution. Media commentators are swift to dismiss the institution as outdated and elitist, an anachronism that should be replaced by a direct popular vote. In recent years, this discontent has found a voice as a well-funded, California-based effort seeks to bypass the constitutional amendment process and effectively eliminate the Electoral College through a series of state laws. Such efforts to eliminate the Electoral College are misguided, and this audiobook tells why.

In straightforward language, Enlightened Democracy traces the history of the Electoral College from the Constitutional Convention to the present. This second edition of the book is revised and expanded to include a new section about the National Popular Vote legislative effort. The Electoral College protects our republic and promotes our liberty. Americans should defend their unique presidential election system at all costs.

    Story
    "I love the Electoral College!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Enlightened Democracy to be better than the print version?

    I just finished listening to the audio edition of Enlightened Democracy. I loved it. I learned so very much, was informed about so many issues that I was not aware of, and I totally respect the data and facts used to make the various points.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The many different approaches the author used to question the validity of each idea, where it might take America in the future, if implemented, and whether a similar idea was ever implemented in our past. Excellent research.


    What about Tara Ross’s performance did you like?

    I am so very glad she read the book on the audible version. She brings the entire subject to life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I want to buy a copy for everyone, give a copy to every teacher to share with students, and spread it far and wide to help Americans know the facts about the Electoral College and what it means to Americans.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you, Tara, for taking the time to write and read it!
