    I'm with you Impartial7.

    I think it's shocking that folks who saw no outrage in a former KGB man's interference in our democracy would be the least bit concerned about the rise of "socialism" in our country.

    If you think about it, that lack of principle ranks right up there with with GOP complaints about endless congressional inquiries against the current president. I don't recall the same righteous indignation during Whitewater, or more recently, the Benghazi inquiry. Inquiries, I might add, which were not nearly as successful (as measured by indictments and convictions) as the cases against Trump, et al.

    "So the state Democrats are following the national Democrats, eh? Typical.
    Our Congress members and Senate Members should be reporting to the whole house, not in caucus meetings."

    So I guess you missed the facts in the article, eh? The Utah, GOP Legislature changed the rules to only allow our Congress members to address them in caucus. The Republican caucus is closed to all but Republican members. The Democratic Utah caucus is open to all. GOP Congressmen did not make an effort to address the Democratic members of the Utah Legislature. McAdams did and he was barred from addressing Republicans.

    Partisanship is alive and well, even here in Utah. It is a plague that takes away reason and replaces it with pride. It is the greatest threat our republic faces.

    Glad they gave a report to those willing to listen.

    Town Hall Meetings

    How do we find out about these meetings?
    They do not seem to be publicized in my opinion.
    Are they trying to avoid these meetings?
    So when is Senator Lee’s next “Town Hall” meeting?
    Twenty people were at Representative Stuart’s meeting.
    Wow that is a lot! Were they personally invited?
    Or are they following former Representative Love’s “Town Hall” meeting protocol of meeting with small groups of select constituents?
    Personal feeling “Town Hall” audiences should not be like the audiences of late night TV “infomercials.”

    "The 2nd District congressman also expressed concern about the rise of socialism.
    "I'm shocked about we're having conversations about whether the future of our country is socialist," Stewart said. He recently created the congressional anti-socialism caucus."

    I'm shocked that an ex-Air Force pilot would become an alarmist that would surrender his oath to the constitution and his country, to support an increasingly dangerous President. No matter what.

    Here is Romney's Report: "I fought hard for a wall around my country club, but I don't want a wall around my country to keep it safe."
