Will Obama step down if he loses the election?

Word is out that there is a move by the governemt to fuel civil unrest and make the move of martial law and ignoring election results should they be less than favorable.

The following was a trial ballon to see if anyone pays attention...

Yeah Bev Perdue is about as popular as aids in NC. She's not even bothering to run again this November. Before making the statement her approval rating was single digits. They tried to pass the statement off as a joke, but even fellow democrats couldn't keep a straight face telling that lie to the cameras.

The link is to a trial ballon floated to see the raction.

But I have heard that the DHS is tring to give a push to civil unrest.

Other things included...

The federal handling of the Trayvon Martin case and overcharging the defendant so he would walk.

Collapsing the currency...

And the MSM is helping out...

The object is to get the populace worked up enough to declare martial law and implement the NDAA which BHO said he did not want but was in a big hurry to sign.

Add to that new bills to make protesting illegal HR347 and it's senate cousin S. 1794

http://www.slate.com/articles/news_a...e_speech_.html

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jeanin...b_1328205.html

Pretty much spell out that political free speech is out of style and a thing of the past.

I can remember a shrill cow telling us that dissent was patriotic... I guess that is only when the offices are held by republicans.

See ya in the gulags...

He would have to get the military to back him and there is no way they would. Heck, mr obama may have to go the way of President Nixon here soon.

the majors and colonels, probably not. the generals, whatever it takes to keep their status. but will some captains, majors and colonels mount up on strykers and assault the white house when that time comes?

They'll probably lock the military up in the FEMA death camps so they won't oppose him, then there'll be lots of guys coming down with Corporal Tunnel Syndrome like in Hogan's Heroes.

I hope everyone understands that this same crappy topic came up during the last year of Bush's presidency, and some of the Lefties here started to get all bothered up about how Bush would do "something" to stay in power.

It was a stupid conversation then, and it's a stupid conversation now.

So I'll just toss out two points and let others play in this thread without me:

1. I don't recall a sitting high level politician during the last year of Bush's presidency make any such suggestion that would fuel such a proposition.
So from the OP, I can at least see why some people would bring up the topic again.

2. I don't think anyone should actually worry about this happening. But just in case, perhaps people should keep their guns clean and oiled and maintain a fresh stock of ammo in case citizens would be called upon to counter such a proposterous happening where their elected government decided all on it's own to steal the power away from the electorate and bestow it upon themselves.
