Presidential Candidates and the Oxymoron of Their Internet Love

Internet role in terrorism

Nowadays, the US elections have involved the use of the Internet for interaction more than ever before. The candidates reach a lot of people and they communicate with potential voters, so as to spread the word of their campaign and win the impressions over their competitors.

Especially in the case of Donald Trump, his popularity has been directly linked to the rich social media presence of the eccentric politician, along with his presence on cable TV. With Facebook and even more importantly with Twitter on the rise, the communication becomes smoother and more effective than it was in the past. This is something that the politicians cannot ignore.

It is a tragic irony to see that the presidential candidates rely so much on the Internet and yet they do absolutely nothing to promote a safer and more solid Internet environment for the people of the USA. More specifically, online privacy does not seem to be in the agenda of any of the candidates.

Instead, Trump and Cruz with Rubio have been positioned opposite the desire of Apple to protect its users. On the other hand, there were protests all over the country on the same issue backing Apple and their decision. In the voter guide 2016, the relationship between the candidates and the Internet is analyzed.

Among the most striking ironies is the fact that Internet access is expanded by the candidates, whereas at the same time over 34 million US citizens lack high speed Internet. The only one who had supported the need of high speed and inexpensive Internet was Sen. Marco Rubio. Another thing that has to be mentioned is the fact that, even in the cases where a safer and faster Internet has been promoted by the candidates (for example Clinton), the details are vague.

Internet voters should not be ignored in any way or underestimated. They are a growing number of fully conscious citizens, fighting for a better future. This future definitely includes freedom of speech and respect of privacy, both online and offline.

If nobody takes these indications seriously among the candidates, this could work as a boomerang and return to them with a negative impact to tackle with. Hopefully, their consultors will prompt them to go ahead with revising their beliefs and strategies on net neutrality, the need of affordable Internet and online privacy.
