This is surprisingly astute. So are the comments by Carlson on how Trumponomics – at least in the rhetoric of the campaign – has rejected the free market theology of the Republicans on both free trade and immigration.
The Alt Right has an amusing term for the free market, pro-open borders conservatives: the “Cuckservatives” (from Cuckold + Conservative).
Cuckservative Republicanism is a death sentence for the GOP. Their only hope is to steal some major parts of the economic agenda of the Left (e.g., financial regulation, industrial policy, Keynesian full employment, and reducing the levels of private debt), as well as support immigration restriction, because that, more or less, is what their base supports. Otherwise their party is utterly doomed.
