I have always enjoyed politics as a fairly entertaining spectator sport. I enjoyed armchair quarterbacking. No more.
Things have become so toxic I just want to step away. When things get so vulgar that a candidate's children cannot watch his confirmation hearing it is a problem. When unelected bureaucrats attempt a Praetorian coup over the duly elected president, we have a problem. When reasonable people cannot agree to disagree, because there are no more reasonable people, we have a problem. When we can no longer discuss a policy on its merits, but rather just how racist you are for supporting or not supporting said policy, we have a problem.
I read the comments on a sports article last night. It was about the Colts. The comments turned into a discussion of Trump/Kneeling/name calling/hysterics before 10 people even commented on the innocuous article.
I like politics. They are not my life. It may consume a great deal of my ranting on these pages, but it is not my being. If it is yours, I suggest you get a grip, examine your life, and relax.
