About the Book

As cliché as it may sound, teenagers are the future of America and with the youth voting block gaining so much attention in recent elections, now more than ever, it is important that American teenagers have a solid understanding of the American political landscape. As such it is necessary to educate America’s teenagers upon the political issues of our time. This book is a compilation of essays that sum up the major issues of our day and advocate for solutions regarding them. The ultimate goal of this book is to help American teenagers understand the basics of many of the issues facing our country today.
