Iowa Defense Alliance: My thoughts on Adel

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Defense Alliance

The primary purpose behind Town Hall Meetings is to allow the public
to have an avenue where they can express themselves to their elected
officials face to face. It allows citizen's to ask a question directly
to the official. This is an excellent method for our legislators to
correspond with us, the residents of the district. In recent days we
have seen Town Halls across the country erupt with passion and
activism in quantities that we have not seen in quite some time. As
Craig Robinson pointed out on The Iowa Republican, it would seem that
an apathetic public has awoken and nothing will contain their passion
or their outrage. Unlike some other Iowans roaming the halls of
Congress in Washington Senator Charles Grassley's Town Halls have
maintained an openness and respect for the constituents that has
rarely been witnessed this month.
