A Star Is Born: Kari Lake Shows the Real Path to "Trumpism After Trump"


But even if the nation is blessed with a second presidential term, Trump won't be around forever. And ever since Trump won the most important electoral victory in modern American history six years ago, patriotic Americans have wondered: Can the "Donald Trump moment" survive beyond Donald Trump himself?

Wonder no more. The first true heir of Donald Trump — the person who matches not only his America-first positions but also his incredible raw political talent — has arrived. In Kari Lake, the America First movement doesn't just have the next governor of Arizona. It has a budding national (or even global) superstar.

"Trumpism after Trump" has become a familiar routine. For years, professional conservatives have lectured voters about the need to translate President Trump's winning style into a "serious" policy agenda. But this charisma-free vision of politics misses the essential core of Trump's appeal. Kari Lake reminds us exactly what that is.

In a great many cases, this post-Trump ideology is little more than wish fulfillment—the dreamer's fantasy of a political movement that takes everything the dreamer likes about Trump while cutting loose everything they dislike about it. In fact, the most common dream is better described not as "Trumpism after Trump," but as Trumpism without Trump.

However, it would be nice to have a leader who explains government in detail. In the USA, we have two forms of government, the Republic and the Democracy. Formal government is the Democracy. The Republic is the people in their individuality. The formal government acknowledges that the Republic is stronger, IF the people are awake, and then through the 6th and 7th Amendments. The jury overrules the Democracy government. So, we need to put every decision that government makes - all the laws and acts, and agency decisions - on jury trial - over and over and over - as many times as it takes to change things.
