The state of the Republican presidential campaign

This political report on the annual Southern Republican Leadership Conference and its response to the speeches of a large number of the Republican presidential candidates provides a very good overview of the state of the campaign, and who is really in front.

Not surprising to me, Walker is considered the front runner, with Cruz and Paul in the second tier (best indicated by how often both were attacked by the other candidates).

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.

 

Autographed printed copies are also available at discount directly from me (hardback $24.95; paperback $14.95; Shipping cost for either: $5.00). Just email me at zimmerman @ nasw dot org.

    Thus far, Walker appears to be a regional candidate who got out-organized in Iowa by a political newbie. Dr. Carson has also drawn the largest crowds thus far at political events in South Carolina, according to reporters covering the campaign. In fairness to Gov. Walker, he has a state to run, which limits his time on the stump. With regard to the author’s comment that Fiorina probably has the highest IQ; this is highly speculative, particularly in light of her unsuccessful stint at HP. Meg Whitman seems to be doing a better job, in my opinion. If I were to “speculate” on this topic, I would guess that Carson, Cruz and Jindal would top the field in no particular order. Regardless, the strongest ticket for the GOP, in my opinion, would be Rubio and Kasich, because Florida and Ohio must be carried to give the Republicans the best chance of winning. The latter would not be my first choice, other things being equal, but life isn’t fair, and Ohio is an extremely important state if Hillary is to be stopped.

    My previous comment regarding Messers Carson, Cruz, and Rubio referred to IQ, not number of delegates accumulated.
