How are you liking how democracy is working right now - with this current run for the White House?

  • Do you like the choice of candidates?
  • Do you feel like your point of view is not on the menu?
  • How does that happen?

  • Lawrence Lessig, author of "Republic Lost: The corruption of equality and the steps to end it."
