Your response to me as a Senator--that I should effectively shut up about this matter and depend on you and the Senate--is incredibly condescending and disrespectful. And no. Just because you told me to rejoin the Senate doesn't fix the gross nature of your statement. Why should any citizen be forced to join the Senate to express their views? Instead of focusing on the nature of my response, I wish you would consider your incredibly demeaning manner of speech. My comment still stands, and if you can't even apologize for telling a citizen to not engage in civil discourse and partake in this region's democratic process, then you are indeed as egotistical as that original comment of yours.
