Trump won Indiana, and it was not even close. Is it the end for the GOPe? It is the end for them maintaining the status quo, so yes, the current configuration is over. Will it become a nationalist party? Will an isolationist or anti-intervention policy form? It is all fluid, and it is possible that it all washes away with Trump's exit whether in November, in 2020 or 2024. For the time being, enjoy the fact that Trump destroyed a great slate of GOP hopefuls with the entire GOPe apparatus smearing him for months.
There is definitely deep interests that are okay with Trump's stances and his proposals. The scary part is what it took for them to get airtime. There needed to be a man with enough visibility, enough money to self-fund, skin thick enough to take the insults and a mind that knew how to manipulate modern media and social media. I do not think Trump wins in November, and even if he wins, i don't think much changes, but let's all take a moment to thank him for destroying Jeb Bush.
This is the time of the fourth crisis. Is The Donald the Boomer to lead us out of it as Strauss and Howe predicted? No one knows, but what a time to be alive.
Last week I wrote on the Church of America experience of a Trump rally. Weimerica Weekly discussed the topic of "foodies" and our food obsession. This week I will write on the changing nature of warfare, and how the Chinese in '99 saw it for what it was to become. Weimerica Weekly will tackle an Internet oddity that has somehow developed into the Great American Epic (Tragedy). All of Weimerica might be encapsulated in one man's story.
