Re: For those looking to speak their minds
Here is an excerpt from the link cited below:
"Whenever the President considers that unlawful obstructions, combinations, or assemblages, or rebellion against the authority of the United States, make it impracticable to enforce the laws of the United States in any State or Territory by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings, he may call into Federal service such of the militia of any State, and use such of the armed forces, as he considers necessary to enforce those laws or to suppress the rebellion. This power is particularly broad, as the U.S. Supreme Court has stated that [the President] may act unilaterally both in deciding whether an insurrection is in effect, and how much force is necessary to address it . . ."
How many of us know the circumstances in which martial law can and most likely WOULD be declared?
Suppose the President were to:
1) Reinstate the military draft, which results in massive civil anarchy and rioting in the streets
2) Witness a domestic act of terrorism and call for the immediate disarmament of ALL right-wing paramilitary groups
3) Any other really scary and dangerous stuff that provokes honest and decent citizens into a frothing sanguinary fury . . .
Would that be ennuf?? :-o
