Does that mean that you approve of organized efforts to shut down communications between pols and constituents? Does that mean you approve of "bell ringing" as part of our political process?

 

How have you determined that they are "organized efforts"?  Please provide some proof that is not simply someone's opinion.  So, should I only show up to a town hall event if I have positive things to say about a politician?  Free speech works both ways.  Do you have any examples of town halls taking place where people expressing their negative views did not allow others to express their views?  Just because somebody stands up and exercises their rights, does not mean they are depriving others of theirs.



When a large part of participants show up with the same signs to wave on cue, that is a great indication.  Can you please supply us with any links to pictures showing that?  Also, how would people showing up with signs be denying others their rights to free speech?

I approve of the Democrats doing anything that the Republicans did while Obama was in office. Don't like that?  Sorry !!

Apparently, I did not clarify the statement regarding the in person Town Hall held by Pete Sessions, which was described as raucous - ie people not happy with Healthcare change.    Those who chose to demean anyone who dares to disagree and hopes to distract from the real conversation about GOP HealthCare  can do that.    So here is the article that describes the event - perhaps they may learn something......  https://www.texastribune.org/2017/03/18/us-rep-pete-sessions-faces-rowdy-town-hall/
