Friends don't let friends post about politicsSubmitted by FearTruth on Tue, 03/13/2012 - 09:52
For awhile now I have been reading a plethora of articles and forums in an effort to better educate myself on todays politics and how things are sliding down such a slippery slope. I have been learning so much, and the facts I have been finding strike a passion within me to try to reach others and give them at least SOME information that may potentially spark more of an interest in them as well.
Of course, my facebook page has gone from hardly being used, to being littered with facts/images/videos about important issues today, and Ron Pauls campaign. For awhile I felt nervous that maybe I was stepping on friends and families toes, interupting all of the adorable baby photos and song lyric updates with my political content.
Not too long ago though, I was talking with a friend who told me, he too had been discovering all the ways our government has been failing us, and actually appreciated seeing all of my posts. He told me it felt nice to see that someone else knew, and it encouraged him to post some things of his own. Of course that discussion nearly eliminated the fears I had been having, and I have been posting more freely.
This morning I came across this article. If I had read this before talking with my friend that other day, I probably would have totally second guessed myself an stopped all posts of important political issues. But instead, I read this article and think, boy, they just really dont want anyone spreading any message that may get peoples heads out of all the consuming and actually learn something.
What do you think?
