Unless something REALLY drastic happens in the very near future I think not. At the current moment the Obama administration has no actual cause to declare martial law.
Should the global economic sturcture implode it might happen
If war were delcared Iran leading to WWIII it might happen
Should a global pandemic hit it might happen.
For no goddamn reason at all it won't happen

The way our society is structured Martial Law would be an irrational action on behalf of those who govern us. As long as we are all busy with our self-absorbed, material based lives, we are complacent and easily manipulated. Restricting our access to cheap food, easy entertainment, and ready-made distractions would only serve to lift the veil of ignorance that most of us live our entire lives under. Idle and locked-down people would quickly begin to piece together all of the things that the'd previously failed to notice.
Now if they start giving us free cable TV and free Internet... That would be the time to worry about population control becoming a major issue. But as far as being sequestered and restricted? Totally counter to the nature of our controls.
The great illusion is to make the slaves believe they are free.

well your going to be very suprised soon. In aniheim a man got shot in the back of the head by police while handcuffed, neighbors got it on camera and cops offered to buy it off them and they said no. The people started protesting and the cops opened fire with rubber bullets killed; Death toll 2. Now there IS martial law going on there, and why?! Because, all those people are awake and ready to make a change!!!

If martial law was to be declared in the U.S., it would probably go down something like this:
A nuclear device is smuggled into New York harbour on board a ship and detonated.
Obama would then declare a state of emergency and postpone the election indefinately.
Martial law would be declared and the U.S. would become a military dictatorship.
The Iranians would be identified as the terrorists.
The U.S. would respond with a nuclear attack.
WW3 would begin.edit on 6-8-2012 by triune because: spellingedit on 6-8-2012 by triune because: (no reason given)
