A Place For Politics

The more time I spend on social media the less I want to be involved.

Don’t get me wrong I LOVE the concept of social media. I love the feeling of staying connected, and being within easy reach of so many friends and family.

What I can’t stand about social media is the politics. I feel like every time I am scrolling my social media all I see is political posts.

Is it too much to ask that we only share posts that are about, oh I don’t know, us! Please, don’t hear what I’m not saying.

I am a firm believer in democracy. I recognize that as Americans we have a more dynamic political viewpoint. Our government is dependent on our involvement. We as individuals have to commit to using our political power to enhance the government we have.

I’m not against using our political freedom. I’m just against using it on social media. The last thing I want to do is read your (likely) overly opinionated under proven political argument when I’m just trying to see what some good friends have been doing in life.

I propose we take social media back to its roots. I wonder what would happen if we were able to remove the aspect of “fake news” from our lives. If political mishaps stopped being blown out of proportion, imagine what would happen to our government? They would once again be able to govern without the fear of being human.

We would walk in a more wholesome and authentic world without the exaggeration that social media creates.

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to see a change. It’s common knowledge that when we drink from a firehose, we don’t value every drop.

Social media has become a political firehose I believe now is the time we create a demand for real information. The only way to do that is through narrowing the supply.

So, how are you going to make information matter again?
