Overview

Is the federal government destroying the American dream?

Discouraged by dysfunctional government and blatant disregard of ethics among some politicians, Young Americans distrust the federal government. Gridlock in Washington over everything diminishes our hope of achieving the American dream.

Are we rapidly becoming a generation of cynics who no longer believe in the American dream, or have we awakened to realize the state of the nation has become a nightmare?

We, the next generation of Americans, hope for:
• Freedom from expansive government control as guaranteed by the Constitution.
• Aspirations of attainable education and career goals provided by a strong economy filled with opportunities for advancement.
• Responsibilities of government versus responsibilities of citizens to be made clear.
• Courage to overcome constraints on liberty.
• Empowerment of the people to change the way Washington, D.C. conducts business in order to save the American dream.

Meet the Author

Mark Taylor is a student at Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah, Georgia. As a freshman in high school, Mark was one of 72 high school students nationwide selected to participate in Young America’s Foundation High

School Leadership Conference in March of 2010, where he had the rare opportunity to visit the Reagan Ranch located in the scenic Santa Ynez Mountains, northwest of Santa Barbara, California. Mark is also a graduate of the Leadership Institute’s Youth Leadership School and completed Patrick Henry College’s Constitutional Law Camp under the direction of Dr. Michael Farris. Attending political conferences for youth in Washington, D.C. during the summer and meeting people from across the United States are some of Mark’s favorite activities.

Mark initially became interested in politics in middle school after attending a TeenPact seminar at the Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta, Georgia. Since then, Mark has worked on several statewide and nationwide campaigns, well before he was old enough to vote.

When he isn’t busy following the news, writing about politics, or working in youth activism, Mark enjoys swimming competitively, playing catch with his yellow Labrador retriever named Tex, and spending time with friends and family. Mark brings energy and enthusiasm to the conservative movement. In his informational talks, Mark shares how Young Americans can move from apathy to activism. If you’d like for Mark to speak to your group, contact or call 912-656-6857.

Is the American Dream a Farce? Mark Taylor © 2012 5th Corner Publishing, 5569-4 Bowden Rd. Jacksonville, FL 32216 ISBN 978-1-938178-58-0 75 pp. plus biographies and bibliography (ppbk.) Mark Taylor, an eighteen year old from Georgia, is a trained leader and excellent writer. His goal is to teach Americans, and especially his peers, about what is happening in our country and how we can restore the freedoms that made us great. . Webster defines farce as something absurd or ridiculous. Taylor’s first chapter briefly outlines some of those aspects of present day American politics. He has also created an acronym with FARCE. F = Freedom A =Aspirations R =Responsibility C=Courage E=Empowerment. Five chapters in this short volume explain the development of these attributes and their importance for the American dream. The book tells readers what can be done to save our nation. Not every one can do everything Taylor knows is necessary, but everyone can do something. Together we can overcome the apathy of too many Americans. Although I’ve never met Mark Taylor, his impressive book convinces me we need leaders like him. If this young man should run for a political office when he's old enough, I'd most certainly support his campaign.
