Election Season 2016 and Facebook

I would like to give a huge shoutout to those who are on Facebook right now posting political posts thinking that they are going to change the minds of everyone else.  

A big kudos to you as you pump out political after political post in a hasty effort to change the minds of those who are getting geared up to vote this coming election season.

If you are one of those people, those people who are spending countless precious hours posting about politics and sharing your love / hate of Donald Trump / Hillary Clinton with the rest of the world, congratulations on the excellent use of your time.

Elections will be here sooner than you know it, and many people who have been so vocal on Facebook might forget to, you know, actually go to the polls because of Facebook.

I had a friend tell me recently that political posts will disappear from Facebook after the election and we can all go on with our lives.  I laughed a bit and thought to myself, "yeah, because they sure stopped with Obama."

Folks, political posts on Facebook are here to stay.  They will be around as long as Facebook is around.  In fact, I would venture to guess that politics is posted about on Facebook right now more than ever and it will continue as such even after the election!  That's right, the political posts are not going anywhere!  So, sit tight and get used to it.  Politics and Facebook is like an ugly marriage without a divorce in sight!

There's a big world out there, and it's really interesting.  You do realize that what you read and put into your mind effects your brain and how you feel, right?  You do realize that when you are BOMBARDED with negativity, you will start to think more negatively.  By beholding we become changed.  So, if you are spending your time reading negative posts, you are going to have a negative outlook on life.  Political posts are, overall, very negative.  It's been an ugly election season, and I try to avoid most of it, but I am feeling it.  I am sure you are too.

So, here's a better idea: Deactivate for a while and clear your mind.  Realize that, besides your one vote, you are pretty much powerless to choose the next president, and if you think for one second that Facebook is going to give you the extra power to change hearts and minds when it comes to politics, you are WASTING YOUR TIME.

    1. So, after that first debate, you're still voting for Trump? Pray tell, why? Do you really think Trump gives one iota about anyone but HIMSELF? I've heard one person say his slogan should say "Make American Hate Again"…..seems rather succinct, nest-ce pas?
