About the Author

Author Info

In his mid-twenties, Art Rude left teaching for a position with the North Dakota Democratic Party as Public Relations and Fund Raising Director.  The process made him realize politics did not work the way he thought from the outside, the money that funds the political parties is given so the giver gets direct access to the politician it is given to. Legalized corruption. He came to believe this was a fundamental flaw in the Democratic Republic that he loved.  From age 25 to 65, for 40 years he has worked on a potential solution.  His search is culminated in "Political Cocaine - How America got hooked on the Two Party System and how to Intervene."  After teaching and coaching for 31 years, he recently retired from teaching and coaching Safety for Stellar Field Service as their Safety Manager, a company operating in the Williston basin, Bakken region of North Dakota.  His main desire is for a new discussion of politics, above the trench warfare of 2 party politics, to a discussion of how to end the trench warfare.  Says Rude, " I worry about the future of America when the people do not dare discuss politics when our government is supposed to be 'of the people.'  Let's change the government from a system of the money, by the money and for the money, back to 'of the people, by the people, and for the people.'"
