It seems as though lately; some ridiculous liberal/progressive calls on the government to implement martial law for one scenario or another. It’s almost as though they want to use it as a way to circumvent individual rights and freedoms as well as circumventing the Constitution. It’s interesting to note that there is absolutely nothing in the Constitution that grants the President of the United States the power to declare martial law although these days; why should that stop any liberal/progressive President from attempting it.
Martial law is the absolute rule by the military; to be used to replace the civil government. Martial law is generally imposed upon defeated military regimes during wartime; not against law abiding American citizen’s by their own government. If martial law is ever declared you can expect suspension of all of your rights, weapons confiscation, free speech elimination and a host of other unpleasant occurrances. Law abiding citizens would in turn be treated as outlaws and subject to search, seizure, imprisonment, etc.
Give this matter some thought; as the military and the police should refuse to comply with any orders to impose martial law upon law abiding American citizens under the pretext of a crisis. If the powers in Washington D.C. want martial law then let them go out and try and enforce it themselves. Remember the President and other members of the government are not above the Constitution; and even take oaths swearing to defend the Constitution as part of their appointment to office. America must never become a nation that is headed down the brutal path of tyrannical rule as other nations in other parts of the world have already experienced at the hands of their own regimes.
You can see 5 of my post apocalyptic fiction books, 2 of my zombie fiction books and 1 of my horror fiction books on the left side of my blog page. Go ahead; take a chance and purchase one or more over at Amazon.com. They are really quite interesting if I do say so myself 🙂
