There is a new Tumblr page called ‘I voted Republican’, which is dedicated to challenging Republican rhetoric.
Here’s the description:
“I Voted Republican” …WHY???
Remember back in 2009, when Tea Party Republicans were carrying signs like “Keep Your [Expletive] Government Hands Off My Medicare!” ?
Since that time, we’ve noticed a growing gap between actual reality and “Republican Reality”. A developing disconnect between the real world and those doctrines dearly held by GOP “True Believers”.
* We find it amazing that so many Americans still think the Republican Party is better for the economy. [After President Bush spent the federal surplus – and trillions more – on tax cuts for the wealthy?!?]
* People still think the Republican Party is better on individual rights. [Ok, we’ll admit Republicans are staunch defenders of the right to carry guns. But what about the right to privacy in the doctor’s office?]
* People believe the Republican Party is more values-based, more “Christian”. [But didn’t Jesus tell us to “feed the hungry” and “love your neighbor”?]
For those unfamiliar with Tubmlr, it is a micro-blogging site where people post, mostly images. Like every other social media, people are what make the blog posts spread.
The best part about Tumblr is that everyone gets to join in the conversation. The I Voted Republican page allows everyone to submit their own image memes for consideration on the page. You do not even have to be a member of Tumblr to enjoy the fun.
Get your creative juices flowing and create your own memes. If you do not have a way to make your own memes already, you can use http://memegenerator.net/ to choose from thousands of standard images or upload your own. Add your own text and then submit it.
Share this post with your friends and encourage them to join in the fun. Challenge them to create their own meme and see who gets the most likes.
Be sure to like and share your favorite images too.
