There is an outside chance the we’ll know the winner tonight. If the turnout at the polls today is light. If the returns for the day favor Joe Biden in key states. We’ll know. Don’t bother arguing for or against a candidate. That part of our existence is over for the moment, so resist the impulse.
Will there be any possibility of our House continuing undivided?
I legitimately don’t understand why this is ever proposed as a virtue. Why are we supposed to be tolerant of opposing political viewpoints? Even if we weren’t talking about a viewpoint supportive of white supremacist fascism I’m unclear why one would treat politics like a frat https://t.co/rsZYF73Q7o

As Rodney King famously said, “Can’t we all just get along?” Can we? Have we given up on tolerance? Is compromise no longer possible? Are the goals of left and right so irreconcilable that one must win and the other lose?
A house divided against itself cannot stand.
Ironically, these words come from the Great Emancipator, who has since been canceled.
Is there a path to House united or are we now too divided to keep a viable Republic?
