Post Election Problems

9 Nov

Well, the election is over and we have a new president… or I guess not. Obama is remaining president for another term, staying in the White House for four more years. While this will result in many new changes for our country and economy, what does this mean for social media?

Facebook can now resort back to baby posts and first world problems, Twitter will fill back up with useless facts, and Pinterest can start up with Christmas crafts (YES!) and maintain their hilarious cat pictures.

While my Facebook feed was full of bipartisan feuds between Republicans and Democrats, it has now reverted back to meaningless statuses informing me what was made for dinner. Many memes have surfaced post-election and for this, I am grateful.

While many have gone back to not caring about the election, there are a select few who are either totally ecstatic about Obama continuing his presidency and those who are threatening to move out of the country.   As much as the political rants crowded my news feed and begun to annoy me with the redundancy, I am even more annoyed by the angry words be spouted post election. Whether or not you agree with the president’s policies, we as Americans need to come together. Our country should not divide under the differences between conservatives and liberals. Red or blue, we are governed by the same rules, under the same president, within the same country. Our beliefs should not divide us, rather they should create a unique diversity that provides understanding and compassion for others.

Now that I have gotten my political rant out in the open, I hope all of you reading this can do the same and move forward. You may be happy or depressed by the results of the election, but we can all enter an agreement that Christmas is 54 DAYS AWAY. If that fact doesn’t make you happy, then I don’t know what will.

 

 

 

To celebrate the upcoming holiday season, here is one of my favorite Christmas songs:

Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)- Michael Buble

    I don’t believe you’ve posted that song enough. Perhaps you should post it again on another social media site 🙂

    I support the president and his supporters. I will ride this sinking ship into the ground with them.

    I’m just having to adopt a existential state of mind in regards to my future because government insolvency is inevitable.
