I have already opined that Trump is possibly going to unravel 100 years of progressive policy in US government in his first term. As a side shoot of that effort, I now suspect he is also on path to purge the Republican party of progressives.
It has been a dream of disaffected conservatives to leave the Republican party and create a third party, only to find their hopes dashed again and again. Alternatively, they put their faith in the latest republican McCain-Romney-Bush weasel and accept the bad while hoping it won’t be “too bad”. But Trump delivers. And he keeps delivering. All by himself, Trump may be reorganizing the two great entrenched political parties from Dems and Republicans into Communists and Conservative-libertarians. The big labor unions are coming to the right and The Republican party elites are shifting to the Dems.
We could already see this in the last election when Wikileaks informed us all that Hillary Clinton funded Bush, McCain, Kasich and Fiorina’s campaigns. I suspect she also funded Sanders but that was better hidden.
