One Nation...Indivisible?

Cover
SUNY Press, 25.01.2001 - 247 Seiten
A wake-up call to all Americans, One Nation...Indivisible? urges all informed citizens to take action to protect our fragmenting democratic union. The authors claim that the U. S. has strayed too far from the Founders and the Constitution s vision of federalist government, and that the government now virtually paralyzed by ideological conflict, partisan extremism, single-issue politics and unprincipled decision-making is unable to address the people s issues. Chapman and Colby charge Republican Conservatives with particular, though not exclusive, responsibility for weakening our national government just when we most need its strengths to protect Americans freedom and opportunities in a constantly changing world.
