Just a side note after I saw a wave of support coming from a Bernie Sanders video:
I wonder how many people on tumblr actually put research into their political stances, and don’t just rely on the general “tumblr opinion” to take as their own. Like if you truly believe in strong leftist beliefs, then alright, good for you, I’m sorry, but good for you. At least you can back up and support your beliefs on your own. But it scares me that so many people on tumblr seem so uneducated on so many political, economic, and even social issues, and these people are just blindly supporting things they just go along with because that’s what they know from tumblr. Like it’s a new breed of liberal that I honestly think is shameful. It’s a joke to me. People this blind can do more damage than imaginable to the U.S. Like people are actually supporting socialist, and some radicals, even communist, ideals to be placed in FEDERAL government, which is absolutely terrifying. Like that’s dystopian novel stuff. The opposite of what America was founded on. America was founded on freedom, and yes that freedom includes believing in whatever political stance you want. I’m not saying you’re not allowed to be a socialist or communist. That’s your prerogative. But incase you haven’t noticed, communism and its principles have been tried MANY times before, and it never works out.
Socialist and communist control seems to always start with leaders who promise things to a suffering people that they really want or need. Americans aren’t doing to great, that’s not a lie. We’re working ourselves out of the Great Recession, inflation is high, minority groups are suffering, etc. Potential presidential candidates offer things like free public college tuition, higher wages for the American family, tax breaks for the middle class, and more. It sounds great, doesn’t it? I agree. All of that would be awesome. But in reality, they don’t work out in a great way. Government-funded this, government-funded that, agency after agency that we don’t need the government to be funding. It’s great that we have a government that would want to have programs for it’s people, and I won’t go so far to say they are all useless, because they aren’t, but let me quote: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” I love me some JFK. Anyway.
America is a freebird of a country and is not made to function under that sort of control. The more control you give the government, the more problems. And that’s exactly what Bernie Sanders is supporting. The guy doesn’t seem like a monster, seems like a nice old man, but his beliefs and ideas for this country are more than problematic.
Problematic. I sound like a SJW. Dear goodness, please no. This is getting long, but my final message is this: So-called tumblr liberals, and everyone else on here, please put some thought and research into your political stances and beliefs. I know it’s very easy to be swept into what sounds good, or what your mainly exposed to. Which for many people on here, tumblr may be the only exposure you have to anything like this. If you end up agreeing with the beliefs shared by what seems like the majority of this website, then so be it. But please be educated on your beliefs. It does more damage than good if you aren’t.
