I've lived life many decades. Every 4 years, it gets worse. Consistently.

It's a pragmatic way to live, but it's also quite depressing.
For a short time it [political atmosphere] was depressing to me as well. But once I embraced the lifestyle that I've adopted, I am actually further ahead than at any time in my life, happier, and freer to do what what I want.

With that said, your logic/rebuttals are incredibly hard to follow so I'll just end this here as I feel like we're talking in circles.
I am not sure why they are hard to follow, I thought that I provided accurate, real-life examples. But, if you wish to end here... it's all cool
