DESCRIPTION

"Waldman's book is a call to arms, which everyone who cares about our democratic system should read, absorb, debate, and then use as a signpost for change."
- Doris Kearns Goodwin

"With Thomas Paine's gift for brilliant brevity, Michael Waldman tells us exactly what's wrong with our democracy and exactly how to fix it in the time it takes to watch a movie."
- Jonathan Alter, Newsweek, author of The Defining Moment

IMAGINE AN AMERICA IN WHICH a vast number of people routinely vote; where voting is easy, accessible to all, and fair; in which campaigns know they cannot win by dividing slivers of the electorate, but by energizing large numbers behind their plans and ideas.

This America is Seven Steps Away.

A Return to Common Sense presents the Brennan Center report on the most critical flaws in our current democratic process and the bold reforms that will revitalize our nation.

  • End Voter Registration as We Know It
  • Fix Electronic Voting
  • Increase Voter Turnout
  • Campaign Finance Reform
  • End Partisan Gerrymandering
  • End the Electoral College
  • Curb the Imperial Presidency and Fix Congress

A Return to Common Sense is a passionate call for change, a road map for restoring the vision of the Founding Fathers and renewing the great spirit of America where the people run the government and the government works for the people.

"Seven eminently practical suggestions that cut to the heart of how politics actually works in this country— and that promise reforms which can actually work."
- Sean Wilentz, Princeton University, author of The Rise of American Democracy

"Michael Waldman's book is a clarion call for reinvigorating voter participation and other key aspects of our democracy."
- Representative John Conyers, Jr., member of Congress
