I’m Genuinely Confused

If taken as read, the advice here is to get a few more people to join you in “badgering” your representative. (I guess “badgering” is the new “petition for redress of grievances.” Or just, you know, to ask your representative to…represent you?)

If “then” is a typo for “than,” then (!) the meaning is no longer either/or but neither/nor. And representatives no longer represent, but are merely accountable at election time, and in between are free to do as they please or benefit whom they please.

Which is worse than Trumpism.
