We have all the executive orders written up, but will it ever be declared or put into use? Pretty scary scenario if it ever is.

The only thing that would cause martial law to be declared would be some sort of national emergency along the lines of some incredibly virulent plague.

Considering Bush declared pre-emtive martial law in 8 SC/GA counties at the G-8 Summit Meeting I would anticipate another pre-emtive martial law for certain places around Nov. voting time.

Time will tell...

Wasn't it declared during the aftermath of huricane andrew?

Groups of men were running around raping and robing people afrerward and people were arming themselves to protect themselves.

At one point the military kicked out the media and took over. That may have been more political than anything else. It was clear that the govt didn't want what was going on being reported.


Also, didn't they declare martial law during that vetrans rebellion when they killed all of those vets with the military who had camped out in washington because they wanted their money early?

that was the bonus march in 1932.... MacArthur, Patton and Eisenhower were there. Read here for more details. www.islandnet.com/~citizenx/bonus.html. It wasn't a proud day in American history.

It was a discraceful time in our history. Most americans don't read history so they are unaware of it.

Always seem to me to be the wrong thing to send the military in.
