You gotta be kidding!. Surly you don't blame just one party. Do you know that the Dems have had a whole lot of control in the House lately. These two parties are both one and the same and they have always fed each other at our expense. The enslavement, through economic and taxation of the American citizens, started about a 100 years ago so how in the world can you blame one party? It is high time that we, the American People, wake up and learn what is really going on and where it all started. Good grief! why are you letting the wedge being driven in deeper?

This is a complicated issue. I live in Utah. I've met women and children who escaped from polygamy after admitting how fraught with abuse and incest that it really is. I know in Utah, it is rarely prosecuted because the plural marriages are not actually legal, they just "live together." The state says if they prosecute polygamists, they's have to prosecute all 'co-habitators'. Mean while little gilrs are forced to have sexual relationships old men and young men once they hit puberty are literally abandoned in the middle of no where, with no life skills to use if they can find their way to a town. I don't know what the answer is, but best wished and blessings to the victims.

I would hope they would use the wisdom of Solomon in the decision.
