52. You see no value in protecting the right of a congress person to hold a town hall
discussion that allows everyone to ask their questions and relay their concerns in an orderly way? How else is representative democracy supposed to work? Left/right - no one has the right to disrupt the democratic process in such a way that orderly elections cannot be held or in a way that keeps representatives from discussing issues with their constituents. Decisions in a democracy are made according to who can command the most votes, not who can shout the loudest.
