    Let me ask a serious question;

    If the current administration operates on the same basis as former and current dictators; that is to say, that once they got in power, they changed the laws to ensure that they are in power permanently, what are we the people willing to do?

    I ask because I can truly see this administration following the same path, use the same tactics as all other dictators have done if he sees there is no hope of legally winning the election.

    This is not a hypothetical scenario; this is a very real possibility.

    @JD –

    Take back the Senate and retain the House. It’s our only hope. Then impeach his sorry ass.

    I have to ask the same thing Jack Daniels asked in the earlier post, because I’m scared to death. My hope is the military would never let it happen, but who knows. My fear for the past three and a half years is that sometime in October a “disaster” will happen such as a terrorist attack, and O’Bama will go on TV and say, “Now I don’t want to do this, but for the good of the country I’m going to impose martial law and suspend elections.”

    Of course, half the people in the country – and 90% of the media would immediately say that it is for the best.

    @Stirrin the BS

    Yes, but how do we take back the Senate? The checks and balances that currently ensure that no president can sit for more than two terms will be eliminated. As well, the existing system of regaining the Senate will be disolved for precisely the reason you mentioned.

    @JD – I thought your concern was about this action being taken after (if) he wins a second term. I was referring to taking back the Senate in the November elections before any of this could take place. Unless I’m missing something, I don’t think he could take on a unified House and Senate, if he wins re-election.

    Jugears can take on anybody with an executive order, including extrajudicial execution of US citizens.

    No wait.

    Is it legal to interrogate a person and threaten to crush their son’s testicles, and do it if needed? Yes it is legal. Remember the Unitary Executive? Remember John Yoo?

    Remember the Patriot Act and how it has affected us? Well, it’s permanent now. BTW, Ryan voted to make it permanent.

    No wait.

    No one in the opposition has the balls to call him ‘socialist’ much less bring articles of impeachment.

    Wow…that’s great, Irony! Scary, but necessary.

    I’m convinced that, regardless of the election outcome, there will not be a smooth “transition”, as has always happened in the past (Clinton notwithstanding).

    @NC077: I have been telling people the same thing since early 2010…BEFORE the Tea Party uprising. I thought the Occupy movement of 2011 was done 1 year too soon. Israel/Iran may be the “national security” incident Obama uses to pull off the martial law scenario. ASSUMING the election actually happens, and ASSUMING Obama loses, he is still President until Jan 20 2013. Until I see Mitt Romney put his hand on the Bible (Thank God it won’t be a Koran!!) and utter the oath, I won’t believe we have a new president.

    One thing is for certain. I have many many friends and family associated will the military and NONE of them say that Obama has ANY support in the military. He threw them under the bus early in his administration by threatening to withhold their pay until he got concessions from the Republicans for things he wanted. Our military folks have long memories. What is gonna happen to them is the same thing that happened in 2008….their absentee ballots won’t get counted.

    As for Jack Daniel’s original question, it is time for people to truly decide if this nation will be governed by “The One” or by “We the People”.

    @Stirrin,

    Sorry for the confusion, what I meant by my question was; Dictators who initially won an election (like was the case in 2008) would implement new laws to guarantee there would be no second election by the time their term was up.

    This is what I see as a very real possibility happening prior to the Nov election – as often mentioned, as a created crisis – where all election would be suspended and a new law making himself president for life.

    In this context I asked the question what are ‘we the people’ willing to do about it?

    Good gravy Jack, quit worrying yourself, just calm down.

    Jugears would have to fire Congress or ignore them. There is a constitutional process to prevent such “a real possibility”.

    I don’t believe you trust Congress or the rule of law.

    Sorry Jack.

    I didn’t mean to say ‘prevent’ the possibility.

    I meant Congress would act if that happened.

    The question of a 3rd, 4th or 5th term is moot. If there is even a 2nd term, there probably would be a civil war. You will see all the rich folks leaving the country (and taking their assets with them). That leaves the rest of us – those with guns and those without.

    Are there NO Democrats with a vestige of patriotism left in their bones?

    Well, no not really.

    So you believe that the president has already broken the law, and Congress is letting him get away with it?

    What do you want Congress to do?

    Loretta, are you drunk again? I only ask with tongue in cheek.

    A civil war is never going to happen again.

    BTW have you noticed that our local police and county sheriffs have been militarized? If there is social unrest in areas of the country the police will turn into a little army, if necessary the National Guard will come.

    There were active duty military deployed to Detroit in 1967 while George Romney was governor. It was effective.

    Well sure, you want to have personal protection.

    OK Jack.

    Do you want me to address you as Daddy? Tee-hee

    But the thing is, if you believe that the president might declare himself president for life, and that Congress wouldn’t act against it, you don’t trust politicians.

    There is no way our federal, state and local representatives would allow the president to get away with that.

    @Zonga,

    lol, no no that’s ok, no need to call me daddy!

    But in response to your question, do I trust congress and government? short answer, no.

    History is replete with evidence showing one nation after another going from a democracy to a dictatorship. I know, I know, The USA is not a democracy, but a Republic, however even Reagan understood that this can be lost in a single generation. I believe it is folly to think it never could happen.

    Look at the UK, from Churchill and Thatcher , to what we see today, all within a generation.

    Look at the majority of those who are in congress, look who is the speaker of the house. Do they inspire confidence?

    Any any rate, better to be prepared and nothing happen than to be ill prepared if something does happen.
