Trump is Reviving American Republicanism

Late on election night, as befuddled pundits finally accepted that Trump, against all predictions, had been elected president, the question arose: “What then should this new Trump party be called?”  Came the puzzled response: “I don’t know you tell me.” Whereas others entered office prepared merely to give lip service to their campaign promises,

The Great Social Media Purge: No One Is Safe
