Everybody proclaims disgust with the political system, yet the system continues to get more disgusting. Is the hard-nosed partisanship in politics today the result of a fl aw in the design of our system of government? Did our forefathers overlook some-thing important when they were writing the Constitution?
In A Broken Sausage Grinder, author Hank Thomas ex-plains the basic components of the government in order to provide insight as to why it functions as it does. From the diverse settlements and colonial experiences, to the development of and the motivation for our demand for freedom and self-determination, this study looks at what our founding fathers were attempting to create as the United States of America was being formed. It studies the variety of influences that have molded our political system over the years, and it presents conclusions about what is wrong with our system of government and how it can be fixed.
Designed as a tool to facilitate discussion, A Broken Sausage Grinder communicates the idea that "we the people" form the foundation for our government; if it isn't working as we intended, "we the people" have the responsibility to fix it.
