It doesn't take Obama gaining absolute control for the government to become tyrannical and oppressive.
What NWO? What evidence do you have it exists? Who is in it? Who knows of it?
I'm tired of people throwing around that term and not actually explaining the stupid thing. There is no NWO , there is no shadowy organisation in a dark, smoky room discussing how to take away your rights. Your president is a black democrat, get over it and stop inventing stupid excuses to hate the president.
The martial law concept in the United States is closely tied with the right of habeas corpus, which is in essence the right to a hearing on lawful imprisonment, or more broadly, the supervision of law enforcement by the judiciary. The ability to suspend habeas corpus is often equated with martial law. Article 1, Section 9 of the US Constitution states, "The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it."
In United States law, martial law is limited by several court decisions that were handed down between the American Civil War and World War II. In 1878, Congress passed the Posse Comitatus Act, which forbids military involvement in domestic law enforcement without congressional approval.
At least two American lawmakers have stated on the record that, in their opinion, Section 1031 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 legalizes or authorizes martial law in the United States. Senator Mark Udall stated "These provisions raise serious questions as to who we are as a society and what our Constitution seeks to protect...Section 1031 essentially repeals the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 by authorizing the U.S. military to perform law enforcement functions on American soil."

O.K. let's say there is no NWO. Then our presidents are puppets for the U.N. Dems Repubs, makes no difference.
And you are using race baiting on the wrong guy. You don't know me, but I'm faaaaar from racist. I've dated a black girI. I am a drummer in a funk band. I was a hip hop M.C. in a previous band.
I voted for Obama in his first election. Then he proved to be like all the rest. I was tricked and so were you.
