Here’s a possibliity, Rick. The Republican business wing of the party may be trying to disconnect from the Trump base and rebuild the party of old — before they dog whistled in those crudes who ended up as the Trump base. If Fox News, however, stands with that know-nothing base, chances are slim for remaking the party of old.

If the Democrats eventually get their way they will turn the American system of governance into a modern northern European style system that’s much more beneficial for average citizens. I hope!
