I am withdrawing from Social Media for a while...

...including DU.

I do not wish to be used as part of a propaganda plan to affect the next election. I'm not sure any of us would recognize how we might be used?

I will look in from time to time to see what is happening but for those that might wonder, I am voluntarily leaving the scene for a while.

2. I don't consider DU to be social media--which I disdain in all current forms. But, taking a break

from DU is something I've done from time to time. Right now is about the most stressful period any of us have experienced.

Come back when you've delivered your Colorado ballot. I'm guessing that will be liberating and worth celebrating as one step forward.

Take care.

4. Certainly understandable

Yes, we all have power over our decisions but psychology research has shown that most of human behavior and decisions are unconscious. We are drawn to social media and news or political sites in much the same way that slot machine players are drawn to those ding-dinging one-armed bandits. I think you are making a healthy choice.
