Postcards From America And Electile Dysfunction In South Florida

Nov 12, 2012

Us Floridians know what it's like to be in the political spotlight, and not in a positive way.

Nationwide we have become a laughingstock, with people from all over asking the obvious question: "Why can't you guys get your elections together?"  

That, however, is a question easier asked than answered.

The Tumblr blog called Postcards From America, which popped up this last week, tries to tackle the question indirectly. Featuring photos and commentaries from across the country, as well as photos from right here in South Florida, one can see a portrait of the individuals who this election has affected.  The mood of South Florida on and before election day is perfectly captured.

It is well worth a visit.

As one woman from Philadelphia puts it, "“We have issues but Florida… Florida is a disgrace. I’m optimistic though.  Not keeping any negativity in my circumference today!”
