Local Man Sees 2 Memes And Comedian Monologue And Is Immediately A Policy Expert
John Sumter doesn't care about politics. He's told people that since high school. He doesn't watch any of the major news channels. He does not read any magazines that deal primarily with political issues. In fact, he prides himself on being a free and deep thinker. Still, he doesn't let these facts keep him from developing hard and fast beliefs about politically driven issues. He is an instant influencer on social media.
He has a system that helps him develop his views about hot topics, and has honed that systems to be able to land on a rock solid belief about an issue within about 5 minutes. He can even do this on situations he did not even know existed before he woke up on any given morning. He recently came to a full understanding on the immigration issue where children are separated from the adults who are illegally crossing the American border with them.
"I'll be honest," states Sumter, "sometimes I feel like it is a gift. Last week I didn't even know people were coming across the border illegally, but now I have people commenting on my posts and sharing my ideas about it. I fully expect CNN do call me up for an interview anytime now."
Sumter shares his system, "For this topic, I woke up and saw it trending on Twitter. then saw a couple of memes blasting Trump for ripping kids away from their loving parents as they were sitting in Cracker Barrel. Then I went to YouTube and saw a John Oliver rant about the situation. He has an accent, so obviously his view has some serious credibility. My mind was blown that our government was just ripping families apart... so I started posting about it myself. Next thing you know, I have LIKES, and SHARES, and that's how it works. I honestly feel honored and humbled to be a source of truth and light to so many people on the internet."
John wakes up every morning looking to become an expert on whatever random issue is trending on social media. But he doesn't research or defend it past 20 minutes. "There is too much stuff happening. I don't really care about any particular situation. I just think everyone should have a passionate opinion on everything, regardless of what they know about it. When I post, some people want to argue about the facts of a case. But I don't have time for that. I'm too busy coming up with solutions for problems I didn't even know existed last night."
