Gore Vidal was a US political commentator and writer. His Empire series of book dealt with many deep state subjects.


Vidal termed Russ Baker's Family of Secrets "One of the most important books of the past 10 years".

“It doesn’t actually make any difference whether the President is Republican or Democrat. The genius of the American ruling class is that it has been able to make the people think that they have had something to do with the electing of presidents for 200 years when they’ve had absolutely nothing to say about the candidates or the policies or the way the country is run. A very small group controls just about everything.”
Gore Vidal [1]


A Quote by Gore Vidal

Political partyThere is only one party in the United States, the Property Party ... and it has two right wings: Republican Party and Democrat. Republicans are a bit stupider, more rigid, more doctrinaire in their laissez-faire capitalism than the Democrats, who are cuter, prettier, a bit more corrupt — until recently ... and more willing than the Republicans to make small adjustments when the poor, the black, the anti-imperialists get out of hand. But, essentially, there is no difference between the two parties.”1977Matters of Fact and of Fiction: Essays 1973–1976
