Crossing the Line in Battleground America
David Butow

…without, it should be noted, having any kind of plan (let alone a realistic plan) for fixing the foundations of democracy and the process. You don’t hear Trump talking about abolishing the electoral college, getting rid of gerrymandering or shifting campaigns to be funded by ordinary citizens, let alone asking for proportional representation or allowing viable third parties in the U.S. or calling for more emphasis on facts instead of memes. It’s Hillary who has more in her platform for fixing the foundations, it’s just that the majority of Americans probably don’t believe she’s serious about making those changes happen.
