Yeah I'm tired of it (how can a sane person not be)...what's the alternative...not being involved at all and standing by while the swamp creatures run roughshod over us (maybe they are)...you may feel your vote doesn't matter, but at least by voting, you have some skin in the game which helps with the internal feeling of rejecting something being crammed down your throat...I'm not happy with things, but I will tell you this...I'm happier that that harpy and her ilk are not calling the shots...think about it...
Hang in there and don't give up!...and never let them see you sweat

I am right there with you. I don’t feel like either side has any interest in anything but getting re-elected and lining their own pockets!

There's nothing there that wouldn't be improved with 60 (real) Republican senators. I'm sick of it, read about 10% of what I used to read, but when the time comes I'll be there making donations and campaigning, not bitching and moaning.

Yes I’ve backed off some. No matter what Trump does the swamp will be fighting back, at least he’s there over Hildabeast. I never held his previous morals to a high standard, don’t care about what happened 12 years ago with ‘Stormy’.
How come we didn’t see Bill’s ladies in the mainstream when he was president?
There are some State elections I’ll participate in, hoping to keep WI dark red for the a while yet.

I'm so sick of politics it's not even funny. I'm a strong conservative, and I hesitate anymore to call myself a republican. Both parties worry more about partisan politics and not about what's best for the country.
I forget who said - one of the conservative pundits - but he said "You can vote for conservatives but you can never have conservatism." It is partly a result of Congress willingly ceding its power to the Administrative State. Most law is made by unelected bureaucrats who burrow into government agencies like rodents and who tend to skew left. Makes it difficult to effect real lasting change in a rightward direction.
Just seems to be part of the larger "arc of history" bending towards bigger government. It can be depressing at times for sure.

Things like the Constitution, and the theory that we are born with all rights reserved, and we grant a few specific powers to a government that works for us and is required to respect our rights, instead of vice versa.
If there is some way of defending those ideas without politics, that'd be news to me.

Always vote. Third party, write in candidate, or write in none of above but always vote if only to note your opposition. I'm as deep behind the lines as one can get. I'm frustrated. I'm pissed. The republicans party doesn't really exist here. My vote doesn't move the meter but I'll be damned if I don't cast it.
