Will America survive the political divide?

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) - Do you think the political system is broken in America? If so, you're not alone. But what does it mean for our daily lives? A new book is exploring that.
 
According to the book's website, Politics Has Failed: America Will Not "provides a much-needed message of hope to counter the nation's dysfunctional and toxic political discord. Scott Rasmussen's journey from pessimism to optimism provides a roadmap for all who want to get involved and seriously address the challenges facing our nation."
 
In the book, the author states America's hope and prosperity will be found with discussions including some of the following:
 
  • The power of community
  • The power to walk away
  • There's a lot more to governing than government
  • The great turnaround that got us moving in the right direction
  • Winning by serving
  • Radical incrementalism
 
Boyd Matheson, President of the Sutherland Institute, who partnered with the author, joined Inside Utah Politics to talk more about the book's message.
