    Probably was the right move to save face on her part, as I'm sure she wouldn't have lasted long otherwise

    But the US is supposed to be a free country, where the people are ideally in charge, and hence, we don't want super gung-ho security guards at the WH.

    If there was no evidence he had any intention of hurting anyone, what difference does it make if he had a knife or gun? Explain.

    It doesn't make any difference. If they abuse their authority, they should be kicked out.

    Come on Dem, just look at every appointee of the Obama administration.

    Google "Julie Pierson, affirmative action."

    Every executive branch of the Obama administration has been politicized.

    With Obama it's all about politics, his politics. Be it from national security to what your children eat for lunch.

    The majority of the American people want their President safe. The majority of the American people have no problems with existing Secret Service protocols. The fact that there was such bi-partisan unity on their concerns of these incidents means you are squarely against your representatives and the public, yet again.


    A mature, responsible democracy doesn't need Nazi-like guards to protect the regime from its people.
    These guards pre-existed the Nazi's, sorry. Your anti-government anxieties, notwithstanding, the Secret Service upholds the regime for the good of the people.

    People should not have to fear their governments; government should have to be afraid of the people instead.
    The public shouldn't have to fear their republic being torn to shreds by the actions of dangerous individuals or groups.

    Go back to school and learn about democracies. Then get back to us.
    On the contrary, it is your education that is lacking.

    Freedom-loving individuals would never accept a regime that prioritizes extreme security over freedom (including the right of access) when the two are in conflict, and especially when results do not prove it necessary. No Pres has been hurt by anyone on the outside in over 30 years.

    I realize that such a concept is beyond your grasp, so go back to school and get back to us.

    Then your government and the people do not agree with you. We have made our decision. Democracy in action. Leave if you do not like it.
