#TBT to When I Was A Low Information Voter

image

I was like most millennials, once. Gullible, uninformed, and politically unaware. When I read these egregiously manipulative if not completely falsified posts and articles that portrayed Republicans as a bunch of rich old white guys with top hats and handlebar mustaches, that held biweekly meetings on how they could most effectively oppress me, I blindly accepted them as fact without doing any research of my own. And unfortunately, I was of legal voting age. I’m able to laugh at myself and my astounding stupidity in hindsight, but what’s frightening is that I was by no means an anomaly.

There are hundreds of thousands of young people being told what to think before they even know how to think, and that should scare you. It should scare you even more that young people are being more encouraged to vote (and who to vote for) than to thoroughly educate themselves on issues and candidates.

Without further ado, here are some of my most embarrassing Facebook statuses from the 2012 campaign. Try not to vom. No matter your political affiliation, please take the time to inform yourself beyond the likes of Tumblr, BuzzFeed, celebrity tweets and extremely biased news sources before you make a complete ass of yourself (no pun intended) like I did.

Yeah this status was almost word for word copied and pasted from something I saw on Tumblr. I hate me so much.
