a tad overwhelmed by the Russian influence story

Note: This is the Mental Health Support Group. If you want conventional political debate and discussion, go to General Discussion, please.

I just listened to part of the Stephanie Miller show with Malcom Nance as the guest. I am quite sure he is sincere in his
beliefs, but he feels that we "might" lose our democracy in 100 days if the mid-terms go too much in the Republican
way. While I was listening, he did not define what "lose our democracy" means, but he talked about the Russians trying
to hack things so Democrats are aided and thus can be accused. Jesus, there was so much he said. He does have a book
to sell but he said, in so many words, that he doesn't expect to make any money from it.

I'm damn sure going to vote Democratic. My brother is going to vote Democratic. I think 99.99% of us on this site are going to vote, hopefully Democratic. The rest of the country ? I've seen the polls but after the 2016 disaster I'm not so sure they are accurate.

I have to stay away from this Russia stuff for a while.

1. People have to do what they can to remain sane in crazy times

As long as you vote, you're doing good. I'm working for a campaign and it makes me feel better, but I understand some folks just have to take a step back. Again, as long as they vote for Democrats, it's all good

2. I listened to Nance on her show last week

and it was VERY alarming. He knows his stuff and has been quite accurate in what he has said in the past. I am always prepared for the worst as a realist. It helps me mentally. I like to read the last chapter of a book first...that way I can follow the story better and know how to be ready emotionally.

I knew tRump would win and was able to accept it without jumping off a bridge. I wanted to push him off of a bridge instead though. Of course I would never condone such behavior, the waters are poisoned enough.
