A More Perfect Constitution presents creative and dynamic proposals from one of the most visionary and fertile political minds of our time to reinvigorate our Constitution and American governance at a time when such change is urgently needed, given the growing dysfunction and unfairness of our political system . Combining idealism and pragmatism, and with full respect for the original document, Larry Sabato's thought-provoking ideas range from the length of the president's term in office and the number and terms of Supreme Court justices to the vagaries of the antiquated Electoral College, and a compelling call for universal national service-all laced through with the history behind each proposal and the potential impact on the lives of ordinary people. Aware that such changes won't happen easily, but that the original Framers fully expected the Constitution to be regularly revised, Sabato urges us to engage in the debate and discussion his ideas will surely engender. During a presidential election year, no book is more relevant or significant than this.

Second Edition. Big Corporations and their super wealthy owners have bought many American politicians through campaign contributions and lobbying. These politicians have voted to benefit their donors, not the American public. Many American political leaders have made decisions that led to: outsourcing good middle class manufacturing and high tech jobs, dismantling our public education system kindergarten through college and university, deteriorating health care that leaves Americans in danger, sick and broke, destruction and endangering of our environment and lives, polluting of our food supplies through deregulation of Big Agribusiness, pesticide use and the proliferation of Genetically Modified (GMO) foods, the crash of Wall Street and the Great Recession, from which the bottom 99% of Americans have not yet recovered, while the super wealthy top 1% are doing just fine. The Corporate dominated policies of these sponsored politicians have resulted in the greatest gap between the American rich and poor since the Great Depression, and a disappearing middle class. Professor Peter Mathews not only critiques this "Dollar Democracy" which brings Liberty and Justice for Some, but he also provides solutions that will bring Liberty and Justice for All, and will help the bottom 99% of Americans Reclaim the American Dream and make it a Reality once again! These solutions include Clean Money Elections and amending the U.S. Constitution to remove Corporate Personhood and to declare that money is not political speech according to the First Amendment. This Second Edition (2015) contains explosive new material on the Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex and on TPP and TTIP.
