Facebook and Politics: Don’t Be A Lemming (believe nothing, verify everything, don’t spread false information)

“Believe Nothing, Verify Everything, Don’t Spread It”… People are like lemmings and will believe and follow anything… The social networks, in conjunction with foreign adversaries (enemies), have used these platforms to incite people by posting “false” sensitive topics in regards to 2nd amendment rights, abortion, social security, religion, race, party affiliation, etc.. that has caused the current divisive thinking in the United States.

If you must post your political thoughts, set up a Facebook group or another page for that purpose only.
