"We were raised to be republicans!"

This is what my brother texted my mom. He told her to tell me to stop posting democrat stuff on Facebook. He doesn't want to see it because we "were raised to be republicans." I died of laughter. My mom herself didn't even vote for trump this year. The dude doesn't realize he can hide my posts. I just made it so him and his wife wouldn't have to see them.

It's not like I was tagging him in my posts. If he didn't like it he didn't have to look. I don't like reading republican stuff, but I am an adult and know how to scroll past it or hide it when it gets excessive.

Oh and he mentioned my sister in it too. The funny thing is that she's not posted a single thing about trump, only her girlfriend has so how he saw something she posted, who knows.

How about showing some class and realize that Facebook isn't the place to post political bullshit?

Social media is where you share what's important to you. This election means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. It's a major event in a lot of people's lives so of course people are going to post political stuff on Facebook. It's a good place to vent.

What I also find hilarious is him complaining about this but he doesn't even know how to vote.

The election was important to most people but my friends had the common sense to realize politics are hot topics and Facebook isn't the arena for that. Everyone had the restraint and the class to realize that. Nor is Facebook the place to vent.

For a long time I held back but literally every other person was posting about it. It's not about class. People talk about what's going on in the world around them and their perspective. It's normal, that's why political stuff is always trending.

Umm no its not. If everyone else was posting shit then you need to upgrade the quality and caliber of people you associate with.

Oh boy I posted anti Hillary memes on my FB page for months. Then the day after the election I had to post an apology bc a friend informed me I was gloating. Most of my friends were voting for Trump so I'm sure I didn't upset to many people lol growing up my parents didn't include us in politics. But as soon as I registered to vote my step dad was right there to guide me. I do know my step mom and dad voted for Trump. I'm pretty sure my step dad voted for Trump it's unclear about my mom. My family is for the military. So more than I know are for Trump.

I was raised republican until I was in the service during the Bush years, and the Kuwait invasion. It made me wonder & now I am a full democratic member.
