The power of tumblr

This post of mine has been “liked” or reblogged 305 times on tumblr.

I’m tired of hearing America is the best at this or the best at that all the frickin’ time. It’s a fat country with bad health care, bad politics, bad education, bad infrastructure, bad religion, a horrific income gap, a load of violent crime, moronic drug laws, rampant racism, people who deny the rampant racism, sexism, people who deny the rampant sexism, an active and overt hostility to higher education, and a population that consists of large blocs devoted to ideology over real-world pragmatic answers.

And to top things off, it’s filled with the sort of people who give idiotic responses to all these facts by saying, “Well, if you don’t like, why don’t you leave?” Morons.

Garnering me a grand total of…5 hits. When I get randomly reposted on Reddit, on the other hand, I tend to get 500-1000 hits. I thought tumblr, especially with its simplicity, had more power than that. I wonder if the blogging market is just too saturated, if people treat tumblr a lot like Facebook (i.e., very casually), or if it’s just too early in the site’s life.

Or maybe people just don’t follow sources.
