Is this the end of the Republican party as we know it?

I anticipate 1 of 2 results:

1) trump wins, globalist neocons begin to colonize the Democratic party, a subset of Bernie voters move to the Republicans.

2) trump gets a plurality but not enough delegates to win the nomination. disaffected Trump and Bernie voters start a third party and the Republican party withers away.

Either way, we end up with a nationalist party and a globalist party that more accurately reflects the central political issues of our time than the 20th century left/right divide that makes less and less sense.

I see the large capitalists -- the millionaires and billionaires -- continuing to migrate to the Democrat party. In 2 years, Democrats will be praising Citizens United.

Dude, this has been happening for years. What do you think Hilary Clinton is?

Hillary is definitely a globalist. What I am predicting is the globalists leaving the Republican party. Right now we have two globalist parties, one sort of liberal and one kind of conservative. I think that in the future we will have a globalist party and a nationalist party, both with liberal and conservative wings.

These guys grow on trees in Austin. Alex Jones, the guy who kamakazied the IRS building a few years ago. Guys like him and Trump are basically real life versions of Rodney Dangerfield from Caddyshack.

Robert Reich had a blog post last week or the week before announcing the death of the GOP.

To channel Heraclitus, the "end of the party as we know it" occurs at least every election cycle. Trump is liberal in actions, and a pretty unabashed racist. I'm embarrassed 35% of my party supports him. If we have to go forward without that crowd, I think it benefits us in the long-term.

Trump has problems, sure. But if we get Trump instead of Clinton, I'm buying the first round.
