I have not heard of this fellow myself but there is something familiar about this. Oh yes, a rightwing politician with a game show centered on
himself. Yep, I hear the bells of familiarity ringing.
Listening to the news clip you offered I was struck by the notion that how has this not happened before. Voting by click and retweet. Here only for
contact with Salvini but how close might we be to instantaneous voting on more important issues.
Put tariffs on imports? Everybody vote. Maybe not vote but instant polls. Why not? I'm just woodshedding here, thinking out loud.
When the US was founded there were huge distances between states and peoples. Communications took a long time to circulate. Voting needed time for
tabulation and more time for delivery to the central counting place. Now though all of that can take place in the wink of an eye, or rather the push
of a ''send'' button.
