I am more concerned with where it is going. It is firmly entrenched in southern history. But when Republicans AND Democrats awake from their self-satisfied slumber, they will find that they both have ceded their parties to the Bannon-Breitbart Altright, which is taking over the country without firing a shot.

Sure, there is some satisfaction that the pro-Israel Dominionists in the religious right have yielded anti-semitic energy from their support of Trump. The military impact of that will be clouded for a while by greater concerns about our place in the world.

The last election highlighted the conflict within the two parties, which must be resolved to produce an electoral majority despite Trump's failings. It would be easy to underestimate again the power of an uninformed opposition.
