REPUBLICANS AND TECHNOLOGY
There are many myths about social media and many fears about using it. It is a powerful tool. Social media helped spark a revolution in Egypt, it’s used by ISIS, China censors it and a Saudi religious leader once said Twitter users “will go to hell”.
In using technology Republicans have a long way to go. The liberals have the mainstream media and they dominate the Internet as well. “All the news fit to print” by the mainstream media is oft times just the news they want you to hear.
Republicans have been out classed by the Democrats in technology use. The Obama campaign technology worked flawlessly in 2012; Mitt Romney’s get out the vote software ORCA crashed on election day. Progressive groups share databases; Republicans typically do not. A well-funded Progressive entity “Catalist” has developed a massive database for use by Progressive organizations and Democratic Party candidates. We have to do better.
