To save our democ­racy, this might be a start

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OPINION -

Dear Ed­i­tor: OK, how ’bout for starts, we teach civics in schools once again?

Add to that, short­en­ing pres­i­den­tial cam­paigns to 6 months? Both Repub­li­cans and Democrats might be re­lieved to vote for that.

Fol­low up by hav­ing the Elec­toral Col­lege mem­bers vote ac­cord­ing to the na­tional ma­jor­ity. It is a fed­eral elec­tion af­ter all. Ma­jor­ity wins in a democ­racy.

Can we sal­vage our democ­racy? Don’t know, but this might be a start.

Doris Chorny, Gardiner
