Just as was predicted in EVERY election cycle since the Truman years.
It's a masturbatory fantasy for people who want to live the "romance" of living in an occupied territory. That's all it's ever been, and it's all it will ever be.
But! Kudos on correctly spelling "martial." I've seen it mangled so often.
