The idea that Trump could inspire a generation of conservatives to emulate him like Goldwater did is almost as scary as the idea of Trump winning the White House. I think the analogy breaks down, however - Goldwater ran on an ideology, where Trump is running on his notoriety. There's nothing there to emulate except 'I want to be rich', which we didn't need Trump for.

Right? That's horrifying, and the reason I hope that T-Rump really *does* lose in a landslide.

It's a comparison, not an analogy. The article discusses both the similarities and the differences.

yeah, I remember reading about her concussion / migraines etc.. being much more serious than they let on, but that article does a good job of summing up the whole theory with some good and recent videos

Back in the 80's we were all pretty much positive that Reagan's Alzheimer's disease started WAY earlier than it was officially announced.
