Martial Law?

Whether today's national election restores Constitutional rule or not may be moot.

If the Democrats win enough seats in Congress to reorganize with themselves as the majority party, there is still something like 60 days before that happens.

Dubya has enough followers behind the fascist P.N.A.C. agenda that he might be fool enough to declare martial law across America before January. Whichever way the election goes: if the Dems win, Dubya is in a corner; if the G.O.P. wins, the fascists have free rein. Any excuse, such as an airplane hijacking or truck bombing, up to Pearl Harbor Three, is all Dubya needs -- as his only possible escape from impeachment and charges of treason, illegal spying, war profiteering, embezzlement, and a string of further felony crimes.

The key element here is Karl Rove's promise of 'boots on the ground' during the 72-hour lead-up to Election Day 2006. Rove reported sending 13,000 loyal 'field workers' to deliver Republican voters to precinct sites in Montana. Someone on progressive talk radio remarked yesterday that Montana doesn't have that many hotel rooms!

So what if 'boots on the ground' is literal? Let us not forget the Halliburton-built concentration camps: good locations for housing and feeding -- and arming? -- a legion of brownshirt minions. Scattered across America, some in every state, ready to fan out once martial law is declared.

Sure hope that this prediction fails to come true ...
However, "the price of freedom is eternal vigilance," and America has not been vigilant.
