The winds of political change are blowing strongly and the rise of Trump is characteristic. He is said, by virtue of being publicly outrageous, to be the beneficiary of about $2 billion in free publicity! This is unprecedented. What forces are behind this strange development, that the public is so attracted to such transparent demagoguery? But even more to the point, what does this mean for our two party political system?
My friend, Bud Morgan, sent me this analysis from HuffPost Politics. (Thanks, Bud.) It is remarkably well-written and seems spot-on to me. What do you think?
