9781401352387: Dare to Hope: Saving American Democracy

Jason West has become a political force for his generation. With logic, charm, and conviction, he has used his platform as mayor of New Paltz, New York, to present a radical vision of human rights. This book is his manifesto. West has received the most press for marrying same-sex couples (and is defendant in numerous lawsuits for solemnizing without a license). But he sees the issue of gay marriage in the context of civil rights, basic equality under the law, which he extends to fair housing, property taxes, and energy use.

Book Description Miramax Books, United States, 2005. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 193 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Most Americans don t vote. We re told it s because we re happy with the way things are, or we re lazy or apathetic. West says it s because we understand that our vote makes little difference in a world of candidates corrupt, spineless or both. Yet West has faith in the possibilities of political change: Americans have constantly reshaped our country. With the national debt in the trillions, no national health care, unsustainable energy sources, poor public education, a broken voting system, a corporate economy that has abandoned the American worker, and a morality that encourages discrimination, America is not the democracy it could be, and West believes we can change that. Mayor of New Paltz, N.Y., and member of the Green Party, as fiercely practical ashe is passionate, West offers hope and action to combat the sense of helplessness creeping across the country.--From publisher description.
