can the country even hold an election if the current president declares martial law?

I suspect he's got a "legal" claim to over-ride the Constitution (which requires said elections) for anything he damned well pleases at this point. Not a legit "legal" claim, mind you, but one he's issued and would order both his politicized DoJ and the Dept. of Defense to enforce. Whether the latter would do it, of course, is another issue entirely.
But sure, he can do anything now that the bar has been so lowered, without objection, from the U.S. Congress or any other body that might have stopped him previously.

They've probably been planning this a long, long time. Former Republican Governor Ernie Fletcher of Kentucky raised eyebrows while purchasing tons of body armor for police officers several years ago. He was getting plenty of grants, and one was Kellogg Foundation. I'm not sure whether it was for the body armor.
Does Bush/Cheney mission-accomplished mean to collapse the financial system, provoke unrest, rage and despair, and then deploy the military to turn against and kill their own people?
These people in Washington DC seem so greedy, corrupt, and blood-thirsty.
Ask one of them to show you the DoD budget which has never, ever been balanced. It's a bottomless pit, and they can do anything they want there.
Just ask to see it!
Now, where are the terrorists? And who are we supposed to be afraid of?
Nobody trusts anybody anymore in this country. These so-called leaders have ripped our homeland to pieces while destroying any hope of global respect or admiration.
Who will have to deal with this mess? Obama or Nader? Or some delusional Republican?
(Pity the fool!)

This is absolutely the worst thing I've heard from the Administration yet!
I suppose since their power comes from illegal elections, they don't feel there is any need to follow the Constitution.
"No standing army." Was that in there? Did it mean that no army is deployed on our soil? That's how I remember it from Civics class 35 years ago.
This sounds like Mexico or some other banana republic.
Civil unrest? Crowd control???
Does anybody have a country they recomend where we can live?

I say the motherfucker e.g. BUSH is in trouble Brad, I say his powers although REAL are coming to an intermittent end, as reality sets in and fate comes to pass. HE COULD DO SOME NASTY SHIT STILL, BUT HE WILL BE KNOWN AS THE DOMESTIC TERRORIST THAT DID IT IF HE DOES. HE CAN'T EDIT A WIKI TO CHANGE THAT FUCKING HISTORY.

A fascist military coup in the US? NOT beyond the realm of possibility.
Sometimes they're really out to get you.

a miltary friend of mine told me that all U.S military personel has had to (or will in the near future) sign an agreement that they would fire on fellow Americans if ordered to do so. does anyone know more about this?
i personally can't believe that our own people would agree to do that. i just figured when it came down to the dirty work the people in charge would hire blackwater mercs.

All you need to know to prove to you that "many" in the US military will do exactly as they are told, including murdering American Citizens is just look at how many are religiously delusional especially in the upper levels.
This is all you need to know right here, now be afraid, be very afraid.
We are getting exactly what we deserve for allowing this administration to continue and not stop them YEARS AGO.
I just cant wait until Empress Palin takes over, she will make Bush look like FDR.

I'm feeling very afraid, indeed! It really looks like they're going to try to shoot the moon. Only one snag: If you were a US Army MP E-4, say, and were ordered to go forth and arrest Obama and drag his criminal ass to duhbaya for punishment, would you?????

And, honest, my first glance at the headline read, in my apparently addled mind, "Army Unfit..." Sigh...............
