This November, over 1,000 political scientists in the U.S. signed a letter warning about the state of American <
democracy. The letter stated the following: <
<
“A strong commitment to democratic ideals has long animated political science. We write now because the urgency <
of the moment demands that we speak out. The stakes could not be higher. The crisis of American democracy is <
upon us, with consequences none of us can or should ignore.” <
<
In this paper, explain why you agree or disagree with the statement “the crisis of American democracy is upon us.” <
<
If you agree that American democracy is in crisis, describe why you believe this is so and cite examples to <
support your argument. Then, what do you propose to address the problem? Propose one policy solution at <
the national, state, or local level that in your view will strengthen American democracy. <
<
If you disagree with the statement, explain your argument and cite examples to support your claims. If you <
do not believe American democracy is in crisis, select one policy that has been recently proposed by those <

your view.
