My mind is working overtime to look into the possible future of this financial mess our Government has gotten us into. If it’s as serious as Bush, Pelosi, and their CNN media allies claim, I think they may do anything to “help” the country. (Substitute your own word for my word “help.”)
If Bush declared some sort of State of Emergency, in effect declaring martial law, then injected all sorts of our money into the stock market to bail out his financially strapped friends, and the public revolted against his actions starting with riots in some of our major cities, and Bush sent in Americans troops to quell the riots, would American troops fire on American citizens?
American troops are certainly trained for urban warfare. Urban warfare military schools of various types are the last place American troops go before being deployed to Iraq. Why does this all seem so sinister to me now that we have a President who will probably do anything to save his friends’ money?
Am I paranoid? Yes, but that’s not a bad thing in these days when our Government has grown totally out of control. The current financial crisis is a manifestation of what can happen when we, the American people, allow our Government to assume greater and greater control over our lives. We are standing up to our Government now. Will we continue if Bush assumes emergency powers his advisors (friends who are now being hurt in the financial crisis) convince him he has the power to assume? We may find out soon.
By the way, here’s another article shedding some light on this financial crisis: http://www.time.com/time/business/article/0,8599,1845209,00.html?cnn=yes
