American Democracy TV - Flight 8 - Representative Democracy in America Professional Development Seminar Part I
The Informal Political Process - Thomas Mann
The Philosophical Foundation of Representative Democracy - Anthony Corrado
Is a strong and ideologically-based party compatible with the role of the legislature and the separation of powers? How weary of their government should American voters be? These often unasked, even provacative, questions are thoughtfully examined in Part I of The Alliance for Representative Democracy Seminar.
A noted congressional scholar, Thomas Mann, and one of the nation's leading experts on campaign finance, Anthony Corrado, discuss the Founding Fathers' philosophical approach to the formulation of our government and the idea of a separation of powers.
