What is the real purpose of town hall meetings?
Sure you get to discuss the issues and try your best to affect change with real politicians, but I think it's mostly societal. We want to try and stay linked to a simple way of life that we're losing quickly in the 21st century. At a town hall, people get to regress back into childhood and pretend like they're in a middle school auditorium being rowdy. They even have a principal up on the stage yelling back at them to shut up or face detention. It is depressing to see people like this, but then again this is America, the only thing that isn't depressing is porn and hamburgers. And yes that is just one thing to me.
