How to Make America Into a Democracy By Carson Herr Cover Image


My book advocates for turning the United States into a democracy. It is commonly said that America is a democracy but it's not, it is a republic. Our country has a strong democratic tradition and our culture is very democratic. Many states have adopted ballot measure systems over the years and 25 states plus the District of Columbia have one now. The Federal government is much less democratic by comparison. This book outlines a series of steps that America could take to turn itself into an actual democracy.

About the Author

My name is Carson Herr, I am 27 years old from Portland, Oregon. I was the captain of my high school speech and debate team. I earned a BS in Economics at Portland State University and I just received my MBA from Oregon State University. I have been interested in history and politics since I was a kid. I have taken many history classes in college and classes on political science. I go onto multiple times a day and I am a voracious reader of books as well. I have been reading about American history and politics for years and I have been writing about it as a hobby. I have spent a couple of years working on this book and I have been diligently researching and writing my book. I have stringently edited this book multiple times to create the highest quality product that I can. My book has been a multiple year project that I began because I have been troubled by the situation our country is in and I wanted to make a contribution. It's very difficult to get into the writing profession and I saw this as an opportunity to create a book that can begin my professional writing career.
