“Ed Delon provides sound instruction on the basics of citizenship in the United States without taking sides. By informing the reader about domestic and foreign policy issues-past, present and future-he is emphasizing what is perhaps most critical for the contemporary American: inform yourself about the issues and the candidates because your vote is meaningful.”
-A. Ross Johnson, Ph.D., Senior Scholar, Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, Research Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University
DELON SAID two factors motivated me to write the book: one, it became obvious that many citizens did not understand the difference between electoral and popular votes during the 2000 Presidential Election campaign; and, two, the Intercollegiate Studies Institute administered a civics literacy test in 2008 to more than 2,500 college students. Seventy-one percent of them failed.
Consent to be governed also means that citizens should be engaged in the political process, be informed on the issues, and perform their civic duty by voting. Citizens who do not vote ALLOW other voters to speak for them AND END UP SUPPORTING CANDIDATES WHO MAY OPPOSE THEIR INTEREST. Readers of this book will better understand why they are key stakeholders in the political process, regardless of their ideology or who they vote for, and THE VITAL ROLE THEY PLAN IN preserving this federal republic.
