Lessig2016: Fix Democracy First (Video)

Larry Lessig announces his candidacy for president. A must-watch!

In Claremont New Hampshire, in the very back yard that Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich shook hands 20 years ago promising to address campaign finance, Larry Lessig announces his presidential candidacy. ~ Lessig2016

  • Thank you, Larry Lessig, for joining the fight for a true representative democracy. There is no way to make America great for ALL Americans with representatives funded by the One Percent to serve the needs of the One Percent.

  • The more the merrier, JoAnn, as it offers hope of the best person coming good at the hustings, all things being equal. The problem is all things are not equal, as money power and various vested interests play a big role in democracy. Still the common voter, whose welfare all candidates are promising to address, can make a difference in swinging result towards right choice if the franchise is exercised judiciously, and the same will also ensure that the elected person performs once on board.
