In his new book The Parties Versus the People: How to Turn Republicans and Democrats into Americans, Mickey Edwards exposes the detrimental effects of partisanship on democracy in the United States. Reaching back to his own experience as an eight-term member of the United States House of Representatives, Edwards shows how the existing political system allows parties to control the ballot, resulting in an increasingly unrepresentative democracy.

In the midst of the 2016 election, Mickey Edwards discussed solutions to fix this broken system that our Founders warned us against, and allow the people to reclaim political power.
