It could be that some people are becoming more tolerant, or it could be the last gasp of a dying movement. A flame flickers wildly before it fades. I'd like to believe that Trumpism is one last push-back after the massive gains liberals have made with regard to social progress.

At the same time, the RNC just moved towards supporting Roy Moore, after Trump gave his official endorsement. No surprise on Trump's endorsement. Roy Moore is more Trump than Trump himself. But watching a political party -- the so-called Moral Majority -- rapidly surrendering moral values for political expediency is really frightening.

There will be a price to pay. The bill always comes due.
