The Democrats and the Republicans are simply two different branches of the same ruling class, who are all friends and accomplices behind the scenes.
For people to deny this fact by now requires people to lie to themselves on a constant basis. Unfortunately, many people choose to stick their heads in the sand, but maybe this recent news will help wake a few of them up.
“President Barack Obama on Thursday signed into a law a measure giving him, George W. Bush and future former presidents and their spouses lifetime Secret Service protection, the White House announced.
The legislation, crafted by Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, rolls back a mid-1990s law that imposed a 10-year limit on Secret Service protection for former presidents. Bush would have been the first former commander in chief affected.
At the time, lawmakers who supported the measure said it would save the government millions of dollars.
They also argued that former presidents could hire private security firms (as Richard Nixon did after he decided to forgo Secret Service protection in 1985).
The bill had sailed through Congress with bipartisan support—it cleared the House of Representatives by voice vote in early December, and then it zipped through the Senate unopposed.
The law also provides protection for former presidents’ kids until age 16. But “protection of a spouse shall terminate in the event of remarriage.”
This is nothing more than two war criminals who come from two different wings of the same organization, protecting each other from the consequences of their crimes.
The good news is that they wont get secret service protection for life when push comes to shove, because the money wont be there, they don’t even have the money to fund their secret service protection as it stands today.
