I wouldn't put a lot of stock into anything from Alex Jones. I'm sure there are threads of truth in his stuff but I think he draws conclusions without any real evidence. When I was "waking up" a few months ago to all this stuff I read an article on his website about FEMA going around and putting red, yellow and blue dots on mail boxes marking how people would be divided up in a marshal law scenario. Well I checked my box and found a red dot and just about freaked out because the article said red dot people would be killed on site! After settling down a little I googled 'dots on my mailbox' and realized they are used by newspaper carriers to mark who gets the daily or sunday paper. That type of fear mongering doesn't do anybody any good.

if the powers that be were ready to spring nation wide martial law on us, they would have done so a couple of times already. for years people have said all it was gonna take was a major event, a disaster, to give them the excuse to do this, but why haven't they done it already then?
Katrina would have been a good platform to do this,
as well as many more disasters that we did not emerge from with a martil law type of ruling.
true, on a local level it was much like a police state, but i'm talking nation wide. our government has has very favorable opprotunities to do this in light of these terrible events, but they have not done it.
i believe that martil law scares most of them as much or more than it does us.
it would be so hard for them to pull off, so many would die as a direct result, AND in places like the southeast where i live, it would be downright cival war, we would separate from the U.S. and fight for our rights here, they could never come and take our guns and control us down here, i know dozens of people who are stocking up on assault rifles before the next election because of fear of this very thing.
