    I knew Libertarians weren't too keen on Democracy but that's just anarchy.
    Why is it the peoples duty to fund for the protection of the president? Just wondering.

    This is a guy involved in killing American citizens and I'm supposed to be interested in keeping him safe? Why? So basically I should support the protection of a traitor and a killer.

    Why wouldn't I? The guy isn't exactly worthy of protection.

    Well, you're totally wrong on that. You may like his policies or not; but he is the leader of our country. He represents all of us. He is the target for anyone who disagrees with ANY policy of our country.

    I didn't like Bush Jr. I have NO PROBLEM paying for his security while he was in office and afterwards. It's a dangerous job. People who step up to take it absolutely deserve protection, and us, as citizens absolutely should pay for it.

    I happen to think Pres. Obama is a great president. But even if he was the worst president ever, we need to pay for his protection. Even Nixon - I have no problem that we paid for his protection.

    Even if you don't like the policy, respect the office.

    While there does need to be limits on the definition, I think any reasonable definition would include the area around the White House.
    Then what to you is a "sensitive area"? Because frankly from what I can tell you're just painting a broad brush despite the judge having mentioned examples. Can you name any area that does not include gun free zones and government buildings that are "senstive areas"?

    Its called proper english and grammar. If I killed myself I would not be killing "someone" I would be killing "myself". If Joe Blow down the street kills themselves then they are doing just that...killing "themselves"...not "someone". You're the one applying the word wrong.

    I'm just applying the same logic that you and sanga are applying. Don't blame me if you find that you can't face facts.

    As for staying on topic...well...considering the topic of the thread is about a man that had a gun in the open and not suicides then why are you talking about suicides?

    Exactly...yet I don't see you hollering for more restrictions on the use of cars near as much (if any) compared to guns.

    Wrong. He does not represent all of us. He represents those he wants to. No one else.
