Modern Democracy is a blog about law, politics, and reviving the Republic.
Every generation has a responsibility to attend to the machinery of our democracy and to contribute to shaping the rules that govern our political process. It is our duty to restore a system capable of meeting modern demands and to build a nation fit for a new century. Modern Democracy follows, discusses, and proposes fundamental changes to the U.S. political system through litigation, legislation, and amendments to the Constitution.
