Key word “legally”.
Do you not think that the recently enacted NDAA plus plenty of regs laid down in FEMA regulations provide for plenty of leeway in terms of what I’ll call “reactive” power in the event of widespread civil unrest?
“Legally” is great, but in most circumstances it is always very much in arrears. In an era of twitter and facebook a widespread breakout of civil unrest is going to outrun the pace of whatever legal forces can be brought to bear. “Legal “ may have little or nothing to do with it.
I believe with Trayvon Martin we are seeing a potential “dry run”.
Personally I think this administration is dedicated to to the downfall of the nation. Gettting re-elected is important because from that position, obviously much greater power can be exerted and much greater destruction can be inflicted. But the nation’s downfall is a higher priority. I sincerely believe that if the 0bama regime sees itself being booted out of office, there is nothing at all it will not pull. And a dozen cities worth of “urban renewal” and a few hundred dead are nothing to them. It would not surprise me to see numerous race riots break out this summer. I don’t say this to be alarming or doomsaying or anything else. I think it’s a perfectly forseeable possibility.
When you mentioned in your post the Martin issue being a "dry run"...it sent a chill. I had considered that... for Obama could see what the "turnout" might be....and at least double it when push comes to shove. But I was thinking that only from the aspect of the election votes...not of civil unrest.
I agree about the re-election, there will be no constraints on what the administration will do then. And it's frightening to think about..... Actually until Obama's "mic" slip up I thought whatever might happen we as a nation could handle it....but now I'm very much begrudgingly considering I may just have to vote Romney if this primary doesn't go to convention....just to make certain Obama doesn't carry out his Russian plans and disarm our country. But I also heard that the Russian slip up is what the Democrates are hoping will get people to unite behind Romney.....so it just seems no matter which way we turn somebody is playing us all!
If I have to vote Romney I won't be holding my nose this time...I'll be bawling every step of the way....and with the heaviest heart on the face of this earth. Yet I still have hope God will enter into the affairs of men and maybe give this nation one more chance....at the convention.
Race riots over the summer?...it sure looks like it's heading that direction...Sharptons planning on going to Sanford over Easter with a mass of people to Quote 'Pray that Zimmerman will be arrested". ....He may be met with resistance and it might not be from the "white" population.
OWS is now Obamas "on call" lackeys as well. What a mess we're headed for....may God have mercy.
