To be honest, I haven't recovered from the 2016 one yet. I still feel so raw inside after all the petty bickering, name calling, and vastly lowering of the bar that was engaged on both sides (though one side in particular more than the other).

You could do what I have done.........disengage from politics.
Look at it this way. Life is too short for politics....especially US politics, which just gets dumber each year going forward. Disengagement works for the Italians where the idiots, i.e., those who ARE engaged, i.e., vote, regularly elect porn stars and Mafiosi to their Parliment, which is even less capable than the US Congress.
Think about it man, US politics produces results like Sheila Jackson Lee and Maxine Waters, Sara Palin and John McCain. You really want to be part of that?
