I'm a libertarian who used to live in chgo .... believe me, you get over it.
I'm not a psychologist but I'll play one here.
To get over the "depression" go and build yourself a NEW GUN.

And if your candidate wins (I had 2 win this week that I wanted to win) then celebrate by building a NEW GUN.
Ahhhh.either way...I get a new gun. Sweet.
