    Do you believe after the presidential election the country will unite?

    Generally speaking regardless of who wins half the country is going to be very disappointed. The opposition party in congress usually invests the majority of it's time and effort to stymie the agenda of the new president. Their goal is to get their party's candidate elected 4 years later.
    Have we forever seen the end of "Bipartisan Politics", "Moderate Republicans", & "Conservative Democrats"? Will the outcome of the election resolve anything if the opposition party refuses to compromise? Will the new president and congress work together for the people or will party loyalty trump everything?

    NO. Clinton wins, the liberal authoritarians have four more years to continue to demand their right to silence everyone they disagree with, shut down all organizations contrary to them in the name of creating unity (only by silencing dissent), criminalizing contrary opinions and punishing opinion holders. And to quote Dr. Peterson, when people cannot speak, you leave them only violence. And that's BAD.

    Suppose Trump wins. First, he's not the anti-Christ, despite the DNC and mainstream media portraying him and many other conservative leaders as such. Yes there would be liberal violence at his victory, but there is already liberal violence from hate mobs trying to destroy people's lives online and offline for expressing non-PC opinions to attacking people physically for wearing Trump gear. The difference is that unlike the polar bear hunting games where black on white assaults are ignored but the only white on black assault gets the DoJ involved or college liberal mobs attacking people trying to see a conservative speaker, the power of the state would no longer be behind the liberal bullies.
    Look at the video of liberals beating up a black homeless woman who supports Trump because Trump favors the poor American versus the immigrants who show up and get welfare/jobs. The people beating a homeless black woman, #Hillbullies, said "you spew hate, you get hate". When someone says we can physically attack you because we hate your words and your words equal violence, they have justified any and all evil actions in the name of THEIR ideology. And that does not allow for peace unless these liberal bullies either give it up or are fought against, and only the first unlikely option leads to peace.

      So do you believe if Clinton wins the Republican controlled congress is going to sit ideally by and rubber stamp legislation from her agenda? Neither candidate is "the devil" or "evil". Both camps are very "vocal" about their wants!

      If Clinton wins, they will have to stonewall, but she'll still be able to pack the courts and use the large administrative state to go around them as Obama already has on many issues. The title 9 redefinition, de facto DACA amnesty, etc.
