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?
I have been reading lots of history books about politics from 1830 to 1920.

These days....are just like the good old days during that time period.

Remember the most HATED President in American history is on your $5 bill and pennies. Trump has a long, long, long ways to go before as many people hate him like they hated Lincoln.

I think red states will be fine with their own religious dictatorships and won't try to conquer blue states unless given a reason to.
What freakin bizzaro world are you living in.

More made up triggered garbage. Nothing in this post about policy. It's always about policy.

We get the government we deserve in the end - even if we already have minority rule (this is a fact in MANY ways, including state legislatures, senate as well as the POTUS popular vote)....

But, so be it.

What will I do if Trump is re-elected? I will do exactly what I am doing now.

I'd say that happened when the SCOTUS appointed the brother of a certain state Gov. POTUS....and then was magnified by his horrible reign (wars, recession).....

Basically, with a "youth revolution" it's over. Already.

Old people aren't going to change anything. If the youth get out to vote that will tell the tale. Even with a Dim POTUS it won't change much because McConnel or similar will likely still do the same as always (nothing gets done - ever - and his supporters like it that way)...

It's over. Even believers can see that. Now it's only a question of whether opiates, booze or some other new drug will let us all cope.

Amen. Can we normal people just prevail, please?

The normal republicans and democrats have typically been able to get along, and have made our country function quite well.

Can the weirdos please just pipe down and find another hobby besides fighting each OTHER all the time?
