 Above all, Thiel is an innovator. He has made his fortune by
 recognizing the potential of an idea long before his peers.
 Silicon Valley, along with most of American business, may dislike
 Trump. But that doesn't mean they couldn't someday embrace the
 kind of politics he represents. A Trumpist state could do much to
 soothe the crisis of capitalism: it could pour public dollars into
 discovering the next lucrative technology for the private sector
 while holding the line against the redistributive clamor of a
 rising millennial majority. Thiel has a history of making bets
 that pay off big. With Trump, he may have made another.

imho, he bets on war,
