As long as the military continues to be voluntary, I don't see a military coup on U.S. soil. I believe this has only happened in countries with a
long history of national service, or conscription.
Democracy should eliminate the threat of a government overthrow. I mean, why? Our government officials are elected by its citizens, and our armies
are completely voluntary.
Besides, why even bother? Our Presidents will only be in the House for (maximum) eight years.
Although it is a good question. We all could use some brushing up on our U.S. Government. It's all just so darn confusing!
