Social Media: Election Style

Last night, the results from the election were revealed. As many stayed up to watch I decided sleep was more important, but what I find appalling afterwards and before and during this whole election process is the amount of opinions of Twitter and Facebook.

It’s great that people want to voice their opinion, but it’s gotten kind of out of control. No one should bash one or the other side for their stance. I may not agree with a certain side, but I have never argued or tried to make a person feel uncomfortable. Whoever you vote for you should not end up getting ridiculed. Honestly during the whole election I just wanted Twitter and Facebook to be shut down. As said before I don’t care who you side with I care that people still respect each other. Yes, we live in a country full of freedom and having our own rights, but to a certain extent last night at least on my twitter and Facebook was an all out war.

This is the only time I will state my opinion on politics on social media. America is not about red and blue states, it’s not about who we hate and who we love, it’s about making this the best place to live, what you think that is why people vote.

In the end I’m thankful the elections are over and people can go back to telling funny jokes about life, happy occasions, sad occasions, inside jokes and more on Twitter/Facebook instead of election craziness.

Here’s a song that I can’t stop listening to!!!

    Totally agree! So tired of the lack of respect and close minded-ness of people during this election.
