    And I'm growing increasingly distrustful about the integrity of our election process.
    Its not the process that is at fault. Its those of us that refuse to vote or give a damn about what goes on in Washington. The process works flawlessly. But its under utilized.

    and for that to happen voters need to know what is important. that is why education is a key factor in making a successful representative democracy

    Americans do NOT need to be "educated" by me, or you, or anyone else, publicly or privately, as to what "their best interests" are. Americans know what their best interests are - far better than I do, you do, or anyone else does.

    The vast measure of Americans are, politically, center-right; they know why they're center-right; they don't need to be "educated" about that either. What they need to do is get involved again and vote.

    If any "education" is warranted, they need to be exhorted and encouraged that, rather than not counting, their votes definitely do count - and that that is critical to them achieving their best interests - particularly in today's grossly political climate.

    if people are ignorant of the issues and only vote based on their political compass, that is only going to lead to the same problems we have today.

    how can people know what is in their best interest nationally if they don't understand what the national issues are.

    I'm talking about the vast measure of Americans who are center-right, not those who are left of them.

    Seems from what I have seen. Things like history, civics, politics, healthy debate and American exceptionalism are all but gone from our public schools.
