The majority of our troops are overseas, and there are only very few left here. If Martial law were declared on the entire USA…who would Bush use to enforce it?
Lillian..I said “IF”..read the question before making snide comments please.
Secret service…Our Constitution may not allow it, but the sh*t that was passed last October certainly does and the Patriot act and DHS sets it up that Bush COULD declare it if he wanted to.
general..I am an American first. If people paid attention to what this government was doing with the SPP, NAFTA and NAU then they would be answering the same way that I am. I am no longer a Democrat, nor have I EVER voted for a Republican, But I CAN tell you that there is absolutely NO difference between the two.

All the convicts in prison.

Answer by Lillian
LOL…..we only have 160k in Iraq. Our military is made of of 1.4 million active duty and 1.2 million reserves. There will be no martial law, there is no reason for there to be martial law.

Martial law is imposed on a state or country during the period of crises like war or natural disaster. With America under a big financial crisis, Americans are facing a direct threat to Martial Law. But with the use of army troops in the streets can this problem be solved. And is the general public only threatened to Martial Law?

The answer is no. Even those in house are also scared with the threat of Martial Law which is forcing them to take unwise decision. An example of which is what happened during the month of October where several congressmen were forced to pass a bill of federal bailout related to banks and financial institutions of over $ 700. They were informed and threaten to a prospect of Martial Law in case they do not pass the bill.

So is this just now that suddenly, the threat of Martial Law has cropped. The answer is again no. In the year of October 2006, America’s ex president, Bush signed the Military Commission Act. According to the act, the president has the right to station army troops anywhere with in the state and can take control of the National Guard units without any permission or consent from any government authorities in order to control public disorder.

Then on October 1, 2008, Bush transferred back around three to four thousand soldiers from Iraq. Here in America, these soldiers would be given training on different circumstances which may occur during Martial law and the working during that. This action clearly states that Ex-President of America already had in this mind that Martial Law could be imposed. His decisions also made it quiet evident for the citizens of America that there is a threat to Martial Law.

Now looking at the actions of Bush and the current scenario, one is probably forced to reconsider the situations which would lead to Martial law.

With the increase in inflation, the prices of all products would go high which would be out of control. In order to bring down the price, the government would impose price control on food, drinks, energy and other necessary items. This would lead to shortage of products and black markets and thus resulting to civil unrest. The civil unrest might also forces people into looting and rioting and forcing the government to declare Martial Law.

Americans are constantly in threat to Martial Law. This may not happen immediately but can take place in a couple of years. But the Americans should be completely prepared. They should be aware what could happen when military rule is applied. There could be curfews where people are not allowed to move out of their house after dark; and if they do they can be put into the prison without any reason.

With a threat to Martial Law in their mind, citizens’ should also be prepared that the Government would like everyone to work. But for security reasons people won’t be allowed to travel to different cities by car even for work. Not just that the complete law and order decision would go into the hands of the army. They would be solely responsible to decide about the punishments to be given to people who are found guilty where they would also be the decision makers to pronounce any one guilty or not.
There would also be many rehab centers and detention camps where any non citizen could be put if the army suspects on the person. There would be no way to proceed with the court and investigate.

So with the economic crisis in America, Americans are under a threat to Martial Law. And the threat to Martial Law can only be resolved once the economic crisis can be resolved.

Four parts to the question, this includes the one mentioned as the title question. 2) If no, explain. If yes, what do you feel is probable cause to enact Nation wide Martial Law. 3) Do you believe there will be an adverse reaction by the people? 4) If you do believe Martial Law is beneficial, then, what reasonable measures and actions do you believe can be taken to insure there will not be a Martial Law in the United States of America? Please be thoughtful, this is a public forum by consensus and this question may affect us in our lifetime, maybe not. Depends on all of us.

Martial law is law and order by the military. Where are these guys/gals gonna’ come from? They don’t have enuff now or the surge would have worked. Martial law can only be instituted by an act of Congress in my opinion. Even then, I don’t think it is right.

Answer by Robin L
I am not in favor of Martial law. I lived in the Philippines for 2 years (husband in the military) and we were there during Marcos and Martial law. I am not in favor of the “control” that would bring.

Answer by s
1) No, I believe Martial Law would not be beneficial, on the contrary, I believe it would be very harmful.

2) A suspension of Civil Rights is an extremely grave thing. In practice, citizens can be subject to abuse and have no legal way to defend themselves.

3) A loud, adverse reaction by the people would be a proof that Americans still are a proud people which want to live in the Land of the Free. I’m sure this would happen to some scale, but probably not loud enough to have an effect.

4) Some suggest (see source) an impeachment is the only thing that could avoid it. As this is outside the power of the citizenry, I think grassroots organizations are the best that can be done, both to avoid the martial law and to react to it if it happens.

This a great time in history. As one writer put it “The Obama Phenomena” is coming up fast. This man has come from the back of the bus so to speak to the front. Right now, he is the best and brightness super star on the plant. He is a role model for many that has no hope of ever reaching that high. On November 4th 2008 the United States of America will make history. If we are blessed a Good Man, an Intelligent Man, a Strong Man and the Best Man/Candidate for the position will become the Commander and Chief of this great nation.

The Obama Phenomena is a living example of our democracy in action, it is the shining example of this great America. This phenomenon also shows how much we as a people have grown. Yes, we still have so growing to do. But that is life we martial artist know that growing is a major part of our arts. Each day we should all learn something new each day we should work to make, ourselves, America and our worlds better. As the said on the home improvement, channel Start At Home. American has some challenges now and in the future. Mr. Barack Obama and Mr. Joe Biden we believe they are the candidates to get us thought these present and future challenges. Change is their slogan and change is what we need for America this is good change.

Martial Artist for the Obama Presidential campaign are from all walks of life, we love and respect this county and most of us are just like the rest of the people in this county. We have served in all the armed services and several or our members are retired and active member of the military, law enforcement, fire safety services and civilian employ. We respect Mr. Obama and see him with the same regard as a highly dedicated martial artist.

People if you can vote early do it now. Get off the couch cut off the TV and get in the game.

As another writer said, no one can deny that the Obama Presidential campaign has done an incredible job. It has been truly stupendous and although the critics would argue that fact. It is still very true. That incredible job was not an accident. This man Zen like way and overall manor are also not an accident. Colin Powell, the retired US Army general and former secretary of state in the Bush administration criticized fellow Republicans and endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. He said this about Presidential candidate Barack Obama “He speaks authoritatively. He speaks with great insight into the challenges we’re facing of a military and political and economic nature,” Powell said. “He has both style and substance he has met the standard of being a successful president, being an exceptional president.” All I can say is Wow!

No one can do it all by themselves however we think that if Mr. Barack Obama and Mr. Joe Biden win the future of our country will be back in good hands. We will have a great start on the way to a better future for our county and our children.

Ladies and Gentlemen we do not know about Joe the plumber but we know you have ours. Thank you for running. Thank you for keeping your eye on the prize. Please continue to make us all so very proud. If you ever want martial arts training for you or your families in the Washington D.C. metro area give me a call.

P.S. I am even one of those small business owners I keep hearing about. Yes I am Z average.
