I am retiring from active political engagement

I have reached a point where I do not have the passion for politics any longer.   The discourse in politics is one that is negative without facts or ad hominem.  I have put in a lot effort to try stop treating those they are not agreement with as the enemy but I am done.   I have harmed my mental well being and financial well doing this.

For 38 years politics has been a core of the "Bernard von Schulmann" brand.  I have been a part of 54 electoral campaigns and almost never let an election go by without being actively involved, but no longer.   I have made a lot of changes in my life and giving up politics is the next logical thing to do.

I am still going to be active online, my focus will be history and cultural things.  I suspect from time to time I will delve into analyzing some data that could be called political and posting that online but I am not going to be in a political debate or be involved with any campaigns.   I may choose to not vote.
