This book is an urgent call to all Americans to focus on a critical issue: huge sums of money unjustly influencing US elections and public policy. Some people see the United States as a plutocracy run by and for the very rich. Breaking Big Money’s Grip on America provides convincing evidence to support this view and explores how a nationwide Democracy Movement can overcome Big Money’s control and convert our government into one that serves the needs of the American people. It also demonstrates why breaking Big Money’s grip is critical to solving other crucial issues like gun violence and income inequality. Whether you are a conservative, moderate, liberal, or progressive, your participation is vital for fixing our broken political system.
