The Purple Presidency 2024 (Hardcover)
"For America to prosper and succeed in the 21st century, our leaders will need to put problem-solving above politicking. The Purple Presidency 2024 helps illuminate how we got here and provides a blueprint for a better politics."
--Nancy Jacobson, founder and CEO of No Labels
For decades, partisan gridlock and a drift toward the extremes in Washington have left Americans with only two choices--red or blue, neither reflecting most Americans' views.
Voters feel helpless and often end up voting against the greater of two evils, casting protest votes, or not voting at all. This crisis peaked with the elections of Donald Trump and Joe Biden, the least popular presidents since polling began. The 2022 midterms only confirmed voters' dissatisfaction with both extremes.
In 2024, with independent voters outnumbering either party, we have reached a tipping point--it's time for a purple wave to elect a pragmatic president who will reject polarization and represent mainstream America.
In The Purple Presidency 2024, C. Owen Paepke reveals how we came to this desperate point in history, the perils of remaining on this path, and how a nonpartisan voters' movement can take back Washington.
