I've just called another politician running for office. I told him robo-calling me during dinner has cost him my vote. If enough people do this, maybe they will get the message, ignore the so called experts advising them and stop using robo-calls.
Explain it to them this way. If you were sitting down to dinner with the family and the doorbell rang, Would you want me to walk right in, stand over your dinner table and make a speech and not letting you interrupt me?
Oddly enough my calls have stopped...for now. The issue is the groups and "companies" responsible for this are all a part of a giant shell game with a ringleader. The money they collect transfers around through several hands making it nearly impossible to track and more times than not, ends up in off-shore accounts.
The second part is , when/if they get "busted" penalties are only civil and chances are they already another fraudulent company up and running with another alias. Penalties need to be changed from civil to criminal for crap like this. repeat offenders of this crime are getting slaps on the wrist and fined and then paying with money they stole..it's asinine.
