Memo to class: US Presidency 101 is now in session

America needs to go back to school to learn how to pick a Presidential candidate. In my opinion, here’s a start.

Presidency 101

Syllabus includes the US Constitution, Bill of Rights and Amendments, History of the Executive Order, Demilitarization, Climate Justice, Public Education, Public Health, Public Safety, Public Information, Public Financing

If you read into this syllabus, ‘saving democracy,’ you’re right.
