Episode details

Author Ronald R. Fraser (Ph.D.) joins us to discuss the myth of popular sovereignty in his book “America, Democracy, and You: Where Have All The Citizens Gone?” And Ralph gives us a handy ten-point guide to measure if the progressive, Democrats  - newly elected to Congress - are for real.

Ronald R. Fraser has been for decades a Washington-based writer. Dr. Fraser received a Ph.D. degree in public policy from George Mason University. He now lives in the Buffalo, New York area. His writings have appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post and dozens of other newspapers, magazines and in professional public management journals. His book is entitled America, Democracy And You: Where Have All the Citizens Gone?” 

“We have to stop telling kids in high school that they are the political bedrock and then not arm them with the resources, the mindset, and the skills (a civics education) to actually engage successfully in the political arena.”  

Ronald R. Fraser, author of “American Democracy: Where have All the Citizens Gone?”
