So chew on that for awhile and feel free to bitch and moan about it. It is healthy for us to discuss these thinks and yes even complain. Its better than denying ignorance. So i would ask again to HORUSNOW, what is it you think we conplainers should do about it? I would love to here your plan.
You know I can't tell you that in this public place since it's swarming with gov.officials

I have this feeling of underlying dread. I'm constatly checking the news to see if today is the day that Bush will wrap his blood soaked hands around the neck of America. When the steam pipe ripped through the city streets last week the only thing I could think is, "Is this it? Is this the event that will crush our remaining freedom?"
It's a large concern for me. Is there anything that Congress can do to counter-act this threat to America before it becomes a reality? Can congress revoke a Presidential Order? Or at least put limitations on the Order? Sure, our troops are over seas "protecting our freedom" from those who "hate" it, but who's to protect us here in the states?
Did you mean, by Megadeth?

Any statement to the effect that those that voted for Bush are responsible for the current state of affairs sets a new bar for the Most Ignorant Post award.
Well, i value your opinion and i know you're a very intelligent poster-but- you really dont think if there's Marshall law, police state, whatever that they could not subdue the public and do whatever they want up to and including a dictatorship? Look what's transpired already and nobody has done a darned thing about it. All we get are empty promises from the Democrats, and that Pelosi promising no impeachment and still promising it even after a Martial Law plan that they cant see???

Bush dictatorship? Surely you jest. Bush putsch maybe (and you KNOW that will be the name they give it in the history books- it just clicks- it has the sound of immaturity and hopelessness to it), but it would explode in his face and he'd never consolidate enough power to be considered a proper dictator. He'd be up against a very large, very angry population with an understrength, undercommitted military, and almost no national infrastructure that isn't ultimately controlled by the people he would be trying to oppress.

I am worried that you are losing a significant amount of sleep/sanity over this. It isn't going to happen (martial law.) It will never, ever happen.
And what do you think "us people" should do. You say we should do something about it but you offer nothing except complaints about the people posting here. So you are here on this site just like us. What are you doing about it? The fact is there is nothing we the people can do about it. And the person who said that it is not the people who voted for bush's fault, I beg to differ. They should have done there homework on the bush clan.They voted for a C.I.A president and halliburton ( cheney) vice president. Here is something for all to read on our friend Cheney.
I must agree with you since the PEOPLE put him in office- unless he stole the presidency, which btw, makes Republicans real mad. If he didnt steal the presidency, HE WAS VOTED IN.

Oh please....so who is responsible for the state of affairs for the US ?? if no one voted for the boob then we would be in far better shape then we are now......hence the ones who voted for him ARE and WILL be responsible for putting him in office. Clinton is NOT responsible for Iraq in any way so who is ?? BUSH and his henchmen are !!
The People ARE responsible for who they vote for ! you saying that my post sets some mythical bar for the most ignorant post shows your own ignorance....the voters are the ones who put him there.....maybe you voted for him and now fell ashamed and defensive about it ???

Book of St. Luke
But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.
And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.
If the military was used to enforce martial law on American citizens, would people not be betrayed by their own? I believe Jesus told us of these days and it looks like the things he described are coming true.
