Overview

Picking a leader at the ballot box can be a difficult choice—it's hard to sort out fact from fiction and doublespeak from sincere promises, especially with the bias in today's media. Salvator J. La Mastra V speaks directly to the voters of his generation, laying out the hot issues and each party's stance upon them for the upcoming election. With our economy floundering and more focus on mudslinging than on solutions, America needs change—and the youth vote can bring that change. 2012 for Twentysomethings helps young voters get out, get informed, and make an educated vote.

What People are saying about this

Karl Rove
Facing an economy in decline, a bleak job market and a runaway deficit that threatens their future, the 2012 election is more consequential for young voters than ever before. Mr. La Mastra's guide is a great tool to help these young adults educate themselves on the issues, mobilize, and get involved. (Karl Rove, former Senior Advisor and Deputy Chief of Staff to President George W. Bush)

Meet the Author

Salvator J. La Mastra V graduated in 2010 from Baylor University with a degree in biology, a minor in chemistry, and a concentration in Latin. He followed with a prehealth concentration, ultimately deciding to pursue a career in dentistry, and plans on beginning his first year of dental school in the fall of 2012. Salvator enjoys playing an active role in his community, primarily by assisting in health care-related organizations, and was awarded Mission Waco's Volunteer of the Year for 2010 for his dedication in serving others. His interest in politics escalated during the 2010 midterm elections. Salvator developed a passion for seeking out nonpartisan, unbiased information to help inform his peers after realizing that no relevant source of this type of information existed for young voters. This discovery eventually led to his book 2012 for Twentysomethings: A Young Voter's Guide to the 2012 Elections. Salvator hopes his book will help educate his peers about the issues facing the United States for the 2012 presidential and congressional elections and increase the number of thoughtful, educated, and influential young voters. His goal is not to create Democrat or Republican voters, but educated voters—voters that choose based on their beliefs and not because of their age, race, class, job, sexual orientation, or parents' political affiliation. Salvator hopes this will be the first of many books aimed at educating, influencing, and challenging his peers.
