I have to say thank God the Ohio Presidential primary is over. Now I get a few months before it all starts again. What am I talking about?? ROBO CALLS!
Robo calls are when the candidates in yoru local elections use telemarketing firms to automatically call people to stump for their campaign. It could be the party itself, the candidate itself or a special intrest group. They all use this technology.
I, for one, believe most technology is good, but there’s always a way technology can be misused. Take my beloved Internet, for example. Many people have ruined families, themselves and even damaged others by their addictions to the internet. The Internet can be and is used for a aweful lot of good, but it parallels society in that for almost evry good use of it, there’s a bad use too. However, is this type of technology used in robocalls useful, or needed?? Do we really want our dinner time, our family time or even our sleep invaded by this?
Here in Ohio, the local Democratic party used a telemarketing firm to robo call voters. Well, the firm they used made a mistake and people were called at glorious times like 2 am! I assure you if I had received a call like this, I would have NOT voted for the candidate in the phone call.
I personally think enough is enough. I think we all need these to end, now. I have HAD IT with Robo calls. This needs to end. Now.
