    The primary reason, IMO, to give the President of the United States the protection he is getting, is because he is the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. This protection provides both a continuation of govt AND continued leadership of the armed forces while at war.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Not all speech is protected. You cannot yell fire in an a theater; fighting words are not protected; speech that constitutes a crime, e.g. conspiracy, threat to ANYONE, etc (; and in some jusidictions is illegal to use profanity in front of kids (which, like obsenity can be broadly interpreted). First Amendment to the United States Constitution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



    Save the secret service for the POTUS, Vice President, Speaker of the House, etc., those that are in line for president. Use the FBI and local police for the others.
