I was talking to someone about this before, he's a left winger who believes the world will collapse, the sky will fall, and all bad things will happen if the debt ceiling doesn't get raised, and it got me wondering, with so many looney lefties buying into the B.S. hype, would Obama use this as an excuse to declare Marshal Law or a state of emergency ?
I know it sounds crazy, and hell, I'm not a big conspiracy theory guy, but the media, is on his bandwagon, they are comparing the tea party to terrorists, they are predicting the end of the world on this, what is to keep Obama from declaring some kind of emergency that allows him to usurp the constitution ?
The democrats are already howling for him to invoke an imaginary interpretation of the 14th amendment (and ignoring Article 1 of the same constitution), and move ahead, in a dictatorial manner, with the media at his back, would he or will he try, to declare a state of emergency and move ahead with dictatorial powers ?
Obama is on live....He’s disgusting.
Wasn’t long before he threatened to not send out SS checks. I despise this man.
He’s too much of a wimp.
And once again asking people to call congress. What a whimp!
Take Back AMERICA!
FUBO GTFO 2012 !
Liberal groups are seriously pushing this too. They are passing around messages that social security check will stop, the military won't get paid, police will be fired, etc. They are scaring people, especially targeting the old folks. I have an old neighbor who luckily is smart and can see through it, but said she has many friends who are breaking down crying every day and literally shaking in fear because they are told they won't get any more social security check or their 'pills' will get cut off after August 2nd. AARP along with other groups are pushing this hard. They are also having pushing this on social media sites getting old people to 'spread the word'. It is sick.
Never heard such of a thing as “Marshal Law”....
I wish he would give it a try. Let’s see how that works out for him.
guessing you meant “martial law”
I don’t remember anywhere in the Constitution, language which contemplates the suspension of same. In the absence of a declaratory power, the government is not authorized. At least that’s the way it’s supposed to be.
I think it should be “Martial Law”...
From what I have determined, we are still under martial law since Congress never rescinded it after 9-ll. Furthermore, the Addends of Continuity of Government in the Revision of the Homeland Security Act of 2007 gives the president authority to become a military dictator without congressional approval in case of another attack or riots and insurrection in the streets. I think he actually wants this to happen before the 2012 elections, but I hope I’m wrong. Reid seems to be predicting something like that. Dems leadership have stopped all Dem support of anything Boehner does regarding debt limits.
The fact of the matter is no President, Democrat or Republican, is going to declare martial law for anything short of a foreign invasion or massive internal uprising. Quite frankly, because any president who did it for a "trivial" or "political" reason, would immediately see their approval rating cut in half. Be savaged by both the liberal and conservative media. See massive protests all over the country. See impeachment proceeding start in the congress. And most have likely have their orders simply ignored by military leaders and police forces across the country.
It would not surprise me at all. It would certainly explain why the dems have NOT written a budget. They knew they wouldn’t need one!
