National dysfunction creates a personal depression.

I can't say exactly why but I am really taking this on the chin. Rhetoric has trumped reason. The national 'discussion' has degenerated into name calling. Lies are perpetuated, truths are ignored. The ideas are twisted rather than debated. Speakers are demonized. Arguments start as ad hominem and degenerate to name name calling. Perhaps it is because my own relationships have become this way, friend with whom I used to 'argue' about politics have gone to their corner and I to mine, so the polarity is both personal and pervasive for me. I can't help but wonder what this portents if this is how our 'leadership' behaves.
