Elections, by their very nature, are divisive. Unless the whole country rallies around a single candidate, who wins in a landslide, half the country is likely to be disappointed. As people become more and more enthralled with their own candidate and violently opposed to the opposition candidate, the problem gets worse and worse.
I wonder what all those ignorant country folk will do when the 'arab muslim terrorist loving black man' becomes president? Will it spur movements to cede from the union? Will there be violence in the streets?
