A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction
By (author) Jon Stewart
America by Jon Stewart
Book DescriptionJon Stewart, host of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning The Daily Show, and his coterie of patriots deliver a hilarious razor-sharp look at American government. American-style democracy is the world's most beloved form of government, which explains why so many other nations are eager for America to impose it on them. But what is American democracy? Stewart and The Daily Show writing staff offer their insights into a unique system of government, dissecting its institutions, explaining its history and processes, and exploring the reasons why concepts like "One man, one vote," "Government by the people," and "Every vote counts" have become such popular urban myths. Among the topics: Ancient Rome: The First Republicans; The Founding Fathers: Young, Gifted, and White; The President: King of Democracy; The Supreme Court: 18 Legs, Four Tits, One Mission; Running for Office: What Are You Thinking?; The Media: Can It Be Stopped?; The Future of Democracy: The Constitutional Robocracy and You!
