About the Book

If you’re looking to navigate the chaotic, dunce-infested waters of American politics, Democracy or Else is here to help you tackle what might be the greatest question of our time: How do you get involved in the political process and make a real difference without giving in to the sense of impending dread that hangs over our society like a nameless stench? Each chapter will take readers step-by-step through the perilous journey of

• Getting informed when you don’t know which influencer to trust (all of them!)
• Donating and volunteering where you can have the biggest impact
• Organizing, protesting, and even running for office yourself
• Staying engaged in politics without losing hope or your mind or all of your friends


Democracy or Else is a resource for everyone—from political junkies following every turn of the news cycle to young people getting ready to vote for the first time. And it’s filled with practical advice from some of the smartest experts and least annoying politicians around. The stakes and average global temperatures have never been higher—but there have also never been so many opportunities to join the fight. It’s an age of contradictions!


Crooked Media will donate its profits from Democracy or Else to support Vote Save America, its partners and other organizations who are working to educate Americans on legislation and major political events and give them the tools they need to have an impact and create change on the issues that matter.
