The rage builds, even in a posh DC suburb

A stealth write-in campaign defeated a long-time incumbent on the town council for Chevy Chase, Maryland.

Read it. Everything about this story — the reaction to the election by incumbents and their supporters, the reasons the challenger kept his campaign quiet, why he ran in the first place — illustrates the growing fury that ordinary Americans are feeling toward the people presently in power, even at the lowest levels of government. There is contempt for the general population by those in charge, and that general population is becoming increasingly rebellious about it.

Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!


From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.


“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.


All editions are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all book vendors, with the ebook priced at $5.99 before discount. The ebook can also be purchased direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit, in which case you don't support the big tech companies and I get a bigger cut much sooner.

    Always remember: There is no permanent ruling class in this country unless we continually vote the incumbents back in. We don’t need term limits to periodically flush the system clean of the deadwood and career politicians by voting for new blood.

    Now just let it happen in this election cycle. If it does not and the likes of Hillary or Jeb are installed in spite of their own multiple failings and their dynastic aspirations, which disgusts me, then we truly are in hot water and are all owned by their corporate, One World Government money people.

    What a sad and stereotypical way for a great nation with such a brilliant Constitution to expire if that is what will be.

    Rage? Lets talk treason!

    Hillary Clintons “Russian Reset” equals many millions of dollars for the Clintons and ownership of one fifth of the uranium producing capability for the U.S. by the Russians.

    Money for the Clintons while Hillary oversees such things as Sectratary Os State and Russian ownership of our resources. I guess Putin would consider that a reset. Do you think that George Stephanopolis will be fleshing out this story about the Clinton self serving and racketeering?

    President? I think not.

    That the Town Council was outraged at the opposition’s campaign method shows that they feel entitled to rule. As the article points out, there has never been any requirement for public debate or public campaigning. It has merely been traditional, as that is the easiest way to reach the general voting public.

    It seems that the townspeople’s outrage at the incumbents was enough for a clandestine word-of-mouth campaign to work far better than anyone thought it could. The fact that a message could go around town without the ruling class finding out about it shows an enormous amount of contempt (perhaps fear) of those in power, in that town.
