I don’t think what any one individual governor said or did would matter a hill of beans under a ‘what if’
aren’t there already in place some 5 (or 6?) “regional governors” under some sort of Fema or whatever program? Zero would call on the Regionals in a martial law type scenario and fire all the state governors forthwith, i would imagine...just guessing of course.

The GOP electors will meet in DEC, mail their results to the congress and on Jan 6, the speaker and Biden will preside over the counting of the ballots and a winner declared. He will be inaugurated at the US Capital on Jan 20.

If the Obambi electors do not participate, then their votes will not be counted.

If Obambi steals the silverware on the way out, we can buy a new set. If Romney is the new prez, our problems will have just begun.

“You are assuming “the people will start crying” ~ which they didn’t this last year, and which they won’t this year, or even next year. The Occupy stuff might inconvenience a few but we have some pretty spread out urban areas so life goes on with or without them.”

Well, a) it won’t matter whether “the people start crying” or not. Now, BHO can declare a national emergency anytime he wants to and take control of everything per his EO; and b) the “Occupy stuff” hasn’t moved into really violent stages - YET.

You say what?

We’re already in deep trouble. Romney would basically go with the flow and maybe slow down the train wreck.

Once that SOB is gone the people should put a statue right in the middle of the Washington Mall of him bowing before some rag head King.

The Constitution guarantees the States a republican form of government. If Zero can "fire" the governor of a state then there is no republic - the contract is broken. The only legitimate authority the federal government has is derived from the Constitution. If they break that, then they're simply a criminal organization engaged in an extortion racket, and need to be dealt with accordingly.

American cities are not easily shut down ~ try it some time if you don't believe me.

Within minutes of a major tornado ripping through there are people at work with chainsaws getting the logs out of the way. We simply do not wait for the emergency crews to do everything.

Now an ice storm ~ that can shut you down, but it's almost always over in a short period of time.

Let's put this into a realistic scale. About 1/3 of the federal work force are in the military (or civilian DOD). About 30% (little less than 1/3) are in the USPS. A goodly chunk of the rest are in USDA, etc.

A small percentage are actually in DC. That's where you find the guys who break the law.

The total federal work force is barely 1.25% of the total population ~ MINISCULE NUMBERS ~

I'd be more worried about your state and local employees who belong to unions.

Good for you. This is what I have been saying all along. If Barry tries to take over the states will step up and put a stop to it. We are not going to have a revolution of millions of americans dying in the streets. That is not how it will go down. That being said I think he will try it anyway. So its best to get prepared.

Plausible scenario. Everything about OWS is anti-American.

I have watched the Executive Order martial law threads and noticed the usual litany of doom and gloom, so I thought I’d turn the tables on them a bit.

There’s a good number of people here who aren’t who they say they are and are not remotely conservative. Some have been here a long, long time and they are doing their damn best effort to drag this forum down into a depressed tar pit of hopelessness and resigned fate while working for some other agenda or someone else’s payroll.

Lucky for them it’s not my site because they’d be gone forever, which is not near as much as needs to be done.

The local ones work for them, and they're used to taking their orders from them.

You sound like you are writing advertising copy for a star wars episode.

I know exactly what I am talking about and can back it up with detailed facts not histrionics.

"If we blow this election with in-fighting and “sitting it out” in protest of whatever nominee, we sign the death warrant for our beloved Republic. It cannot survive a second, unrestrained term of B. Hussein Obama."

I really think we'll be engaged in a domestic war which will involve everyone. Even neighbor against neighbor. Never thought I'd see the day that would happen and always thought 'brother against brother' was just a religious metaphor.

“I really think we’ll be engaged in a domestic war which will involve everyone. Even neighbor against neighbor.”

I’m not sure the exact scenario you envision, but it’s been clear from the beginning that BHO and his cabal have been working to engender a class war, race war or both.

Never since the 1860’s has our country been so divided, and it’s directly attributable to The Wan’s groundwork, daily actions and speech. He’s anything but a “uniter” as he professed to be.

A lot of us knew him for what he was long before the election and were devastated at the prospects of him as POTUS. It’s why I feel SO strongly that no matter who our nominee ends up being, we’ve just GOT to unite and support him/her to get this poisonous danger to America OUT.

Not one of these candidates has a mission to take our country down and destroy it - not one. The same cannot be said about the current occupier of our WH.

This is true. Mitt will bleed it dry for his Wall Street friends, but even he loves America.

Thanks to all for this thread. At the end of the day, I have faith in my fellow citizens & most of all in our military. 0 & his hoards may try, but they will never succeed.
