If there were no Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders, 16 20 24: A Path to Consistent Conservative Victory would have invented them. This book presaged their meteoric rise and if other candidates wish to counter that rise, they need to pay attention! In his new and edgy political work, Matt Jordan looks critically at the opportunities on offer for conservative candidates in the 2016 election cycle. He does this with an eye toward building momentum, which will carry the right candidate, and the conservative movement itself, through successive election cycles (2016, 2020, 2024 – hence the title). The work is addressed to the voters, the politicians and the campaign managers (handlers) that make up the American political zoo.
Using humor, real-world anecdotes and a strong understanding of people, Jordan takes on the important issues, eschewing the phony ones, to produce recommendations for politicians to consider, if they are to separate themselves from the pack. Candidates are encouraged to shed the vapid, non-controversial, Boy Scout image, which no one believes anyway, for a more brash and honest approach to campaigning. This is not your daddy’s political book.
Jordan pulls no punches in his assessment of issues ranging from the economy to national security, racism and war. The voter is encouraged to look for the qualities, demonstrated in this book, in the field of conservatives running for national office. If the author has done his job, the reader will avoid single issue or identity politics, take seriously their franchise to vote and stand ready to follow through when victory is secured. And this will ensure more victories in the future.
Look for books on Travel, Energy and the Economy, and Real Estate in the near future. Look for the in-depth sequel to 16 20 24 in 2017.
