As I stated here...
If Bush declares Martial Law, How can we stop him becomming a dictator?
"The citizens of this nation would revolt, riot, and burn this whole country to the ground if pressed far enough.
Don't believe it?
Look what happened during the L.A. riots when a jury acquitted four police officers accused in the videotaped beating of Rodney King. Thousands of people in the Los Angeles area rioted over the six days following the verdict. Widespread looting, assault, arson, and murder occurred, and property damages totaled one billion dollars.
I think martial law is a little bit more serious than the Rodney King trial, and would be perceived that way by the citizens of the entire nation."
All it would take is for enough people to be pushed too far, from there we couldn't be stopped.

I can't speak for the American people, but I do have a question for the US Military. Would they actually be willing to turn against the American people if they knew it was wrong? Even if it mean against their families?
