Abstract:

"In recent years, the media has been filled with images of citizens from the right, the middle, and the left, disappointed in their public officials and calling for change to politics as usual. Take Back Your Government shows how we can become a positive force in our government, advocating for change, rediscovering our role as citizens, and being part of the solution. Beneath a tangled bureaucracy and intimidating political stereotypes, there's still a system of government that can and should be used by all Americans."--Page 4 of cover.
