Suppose the police in your city or town were replaced/bolstered by fully-armed US Marines?
We've had this conversation here before, but the enclosed article shows the topic may become even more important as we get closer to the election. So important IMO, that it will have a very direct effect on all our lives.
Many Americans believe the Marxist-in-Chief, seeing that he's losing the election, will resort to "highly drastic, extreme, and unheard of " measures to control the population, under the guise of some kind of "national emergency ", when they realize he refuses to surrender his power/office. And, he'll use, not local or state police, but the US military to do it. Does the POTUS have that authority? I'm not 100% sure, but for a guy who routinely ignores congress and the Constitution, why not.
I know my good buddy Steve believes that in such a case, the military will not go against the people. My opinion has been, and continues to be; the military are trained to obey orders, and will do so. Perhaps not all of them, but enough. Personally, i would bet on local and state police refusing to act in that scenario faster than i'd bet on our military, especially units "specifically trained " to control the civilian population.
Under normal conditions, this would be seen as a rather bizarre, even insane, conversation. But, we're living in crazy times, in a nation that's becoming crazier with each day. We're seeing things taking place that many of us believed we'd never see in our America. But IMO, the America that we remember is quickly disappearing. Perhaps, in what replaces it, seeing armed US Marines patrolling your streets will become the norm. God forbid...
