As Trump walks away, the country will be on the brink of civil war with both sides hating the other side with the heat of a thousand suns. I'm guessing his supporters will be highly motivated through the next election, then they will go quiet, not really caring anymore because their investment was in Trump the personality more than anything else. They love that he's an ******* and that he hates the other half of the country like they do.

Once Trump can no longer run, his supporter's anger will be exhausted while the anger on the other side will be unquenchable. We've never had anyone like Trump that truly delights in representing only his base and inciting anger. The desire for retribution will likely tear this country apart.

The debt will be through the roof, farmers, miners and rust belters will be in the same shape or worse, blue states will want full on revenge, refusing to so much as interview a person from a red state while our allies will have started working without us because we can no longer be relied upon.

What does the country look like AFTER TRUMP?
One thing is for sure, insurance companies will go broke paying psychiatrists treating liberals for extreme TDS.

What comes next?

A country that at least has some hope for the near future, if not for the long term, and where Americans are appreciated by their government, instead of taking a back seat to illegals and anti American socialists.

In this countries inevitable march towards third world status, Trump will at least have given us a pause from the insanity.

This 8 yr. term will be known as the modern Enlightenment.

Here comes the sun, and I say
Itís all right(Ba ba da da, ba da da, ba da da, ba da da da dum)

I suspect there are even republicans that defend their social policies, simply as a reaction to the onslaught from the left. Most of us do not give them much thought. They are not the driving force behind everything the Republican Party does. It just seems that way to you because of your circumstances.
I disagree. Trump chose Mike Pence, a religious extremist, as his running mate to shore up his religious support. Most of his policy decisions as President have been things that pander to the religious right. Old school moderate California Republicans are a dying breed and are considered RINO in today’s environment. Today it’s all about religion and race. Republicans aren’t even fiscal conservatives anymore. The current deficit under Trump has blown up so much it has us on the path to economic ruin. Most people don’t care about that though because it was never about that. Republicans want one thing: an America that is white, with strictly enforced gender norms and with fundamentalist Christianity as the unifying force they binds our country together. They will do whatever it takes to get it.

I agree that life will go on. We just will have four more years of turmoil with Trump saying and doing stupid things; his supporters loving it and his detractors in a constant state of angst. Then hopefully, in 2024, there will be an election with both sides putting up reasonable candidates and Trump will fade into a footnote of history.

A lot of people underestimate the craziness of the Religious Right. Like bawac, I grew up in evangelical Christianity and have experienced it’s dangerous power first hand. It’s like a mind-altering drug that spreads from person to person (like a disease). Bawac is simply trying to warn the general public about the danger of evangelical Christianity and the influence that it has on our government via the Republican Party.

Have you noticed the recent attacks on Roe v. Wade? That wouldn’t be happening without the Christian Right.

I think by 2024 the country will be at each other's throats. I think after eight years of Trump and his fomenting anger, both sides will hate each other as much or more than 1865.

A few years ago I caught a long interview with Jesse Ventura and he talked about being Governor of Minnesota.

He said his major problem....was an a independent he had BOTH Democrats and Republicans opposed to him and he had a VERY hard time putting together a government. Remember when you vote for President or Governor, your not just voting for the individual, you are voting for them to put together a Government.

Ventura couldnít do it. He had a hard time finding people willing to work for him. Sound familar?? Trump faces the same issues which is why he has such a turnover in his Administration. The Elites control BOTH parties, Trump is really a independent in the mold of Jesse Ventura.

Right now..it looks like Trump will be re-elected. The question is does he remake the Republican Party to be a working class, small business and middle class political party or will the Elites gain control of the Party again, just like they control the Democrats.

Will we go back to the nightmare of Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama or will we move forward as a country??

One thing that few mention....Like Trump or not, he is working hard to implement the issues that he ran on as a candidate. So far, the ONLY issue I can find that he has back-tracked on is the Import-Export Bank.

Is there enough change in this country to hold politicians for their promises?? Doesnít matter if your left/right, but if you win election shouldnít you hold to your pre-election promises?

Really that is Trumpís greatest achievement and NOBODY mentions it.

I remember Ronald Reaganís second term....he wins and ends the Cold War after 40 years. Passes the most fair tax cut in American history.......BUT the media says his second term was a total failure and he was a dottering old man!!! So I imagine in Donald Trumps second term he will not fare any better!

I suspect the economic boom will continue into his second term. The rewriting of Federal regulations is what is pushing the economic boom. I assume that will continue in his second term, but the question is after four years how many more regulations need to be rewritten to continue the boom??

What does the country look after Trump?? Maybe like Bush1, who moved away from Reaganís policies and quickly lost the American people. Or maybe like Obama, who ended up electing Trump due to his failures as President. In that case, the country goes back to being run by the Elites and moves left.

Donít know at this point. But keep an eye on who Trump picks as vice-president in 2020. See how many Senators and Representatives run as TRUMP candidates and not part of the Elite establishment.
