could Bush cancel the 2008 election?


infowars.com


It is time to think about the "unthinkable."

The Bush administration has both the inclination and the power to cancel the 2008 election.

The GOP strategy for another electoral theft in 2008 has taken clear shape, though we must assume there is much more we don't know.

But we must also assume that if it appears to Team Bush/Cheney/Rove that the GOP will lose the 2008 election anyway (as it lost in Ohio 2006), we cannot ignore the possibility that they would simply cancel the election. Those who think this crew will quietly walk away from power are simply not paying attention.

I been wondering about this more often, what if he indeed pulled of something to keep the whole crew in power. There are some scary executive orders he could decide to use. The Bush admin basically give hints that we'll have another major event, when they talk about terrorism they dont say "if" another attack occurs, it's always "when".

I don't think they would go that far to be honest. With Bush's administration approval ratings being at an all time low, if the elections were canceled I believe that would be the spark to light a fire under the people's collective asses and riot in the streets. Then things will really get out of hand. But then again I could be wrong and people could just sit in their homes watching reality shows as their freedoms and liberties finish going down the toilet.

I don't think that's a possibility because Hillary is from the same mold. Her political affiliation is just an illusion for the people. Her goals will be the same as Dubya's after she's elected. Most politicians answer to the same master, whether you call it the NWO or something else.

All the Presidents from here on out will answer to the same master. Their political affiliation is just an illusion for the people.

As previously suggested,, I don't think that Mr. Bush would do this. It would be unwise to take such a gamble when his party is about to become an even smaller minority in both houses of Congress.

Having said that, there is still a way he can gum up the works. If the Republicans lose really super bad, he could have the Jsutice Department look in to the possibility of elections fraud. If they DoJ 'suggested' that there was wide-spread ballot tampering, Mr. Bush could use some of his new-er executive orders as a basis for formukating a "necessary exception" order that might let him stay in office until the legal challenges associated withthe 2008 Presidential elections are "satisfied."

Bear in mind that this would be seen as tantamount to a de facto coup detat. If his party controllled both houses of Congress, the option to impeach really would be off the table. As it stands now, Dems would have more than impeachment at their disposal. They could vote to cite the Presdident for inherent contemp of Congress, and they could de-fund the government...and the army.

They could also charge him with high crimes, which they could try him for. Bear in mind that anyone so charged with inherent contempt can be arrested and held pending trial.

On the other hand...Hillary Clinton might try something like this at the end of her second term, and she will have fellow Dems contolling all of the relevent government posts which could make such a...Constitutional crisis...even more plausible.

Well, if he does it, I hope he does it soon, so we can by-pass the impending onslaught of political televsion advertisements.

I'm seriously thinking of cutting off my cable TV service until January 2009.

The only way this will happen is if acts of terror in the US, become so widespread that the voting process would become so dangerous as to make the election impossible to hold.

That's not likely to happen.

That would be an upside to something like that. At least we would not have to suffer through nauseatingly slick political ads, who's insincereity is matched only by the money spent to make them.

If, as some of us think, the election results are already made, why bother with cancelling the elections?

Wasn't the same thing said about Clinton? Finding away to stop the election so he could stay in office longer.
