"1 in 5 Americans have views that make them at least open to, if not outright supportive of, authoritarianism."

Is democracy failing and putting our economic system at risk?

The rule of law and democracy are crucial to capital markets. A free market balanced by a democratically elected, transparent and capable government, and a strong civil society ("an inclusive regime") yield stable growth rates and greater social welfare.

Last time I checked the GOP didn't demand lockdowns or recommend a memoir by the former prez that's over 700 pages long and 28 hours via audiobook . . . At that point, it's not such a great loss when the Republicans shut down the libraries.

Our main contention in this post is that nobody ever said American Democracy and/or the Republic was permanent. Even the slave owning, rapist, weed smoking founders kinda hinted that this thing wasn't built to last. 

Still . . . Our blog community is comprised of optimists at heart and believe that these voting guides might provide some valuable info amid a slew of rigged social media electioneering and so much encouraging disinformation promoted by activists, C-list laywers and our betters . . .
