But should President Trump lose, his followers will not join hands with the Democrats for a rousing chorus of Kumbaya. They will either continue to follow President Trump and look for him or perhaps someone he anoints as his heir to run in 2024. Alternately, they may seek a new standard bearer in someone who will stroke their concerns and fears, perhaps stoking the fires which engender them.
Either way, the United States will not return to some mythical period when everything was, to quote Borat, 'very nice'. I do not see the Republican Party resolving the intraparty split between the far rightists and those few remaining moderates presently warming the back benches.
Nor will the demographic changes under way in the country alter course. Those changes may determine the majority of voters who will, eventually, assume the reins of power and guide the United States into a future as yet unknown.
The road ahead is foggy and our maps are out of date.
Regards, stay safe 'n well. Remember the Big 3: masks, hand washing and physical distancing.
