    I just saw a disturbing video on youtube where a caller mentioned that G.W Bush has passed a law that makes it illegal to protest a war and that if caught doing so, you will find yourself arrested and all of your assets seized.

    The guy on C-Span just cuts the caller off for bringing it up. 
    Scary stuff.  This happened a year ago, someone please tell me that this isn't true.

    I also am hearing that if the democrats were to bring impeachment hearings against W, that he would unleash an airstrike on Iran, declare a national emergency, institute Martial Law and cancel the elections.

    This is getting really bad.

      I would not doubt that W would launch an airstrike against Iran so the nation would, theoretically, rally around the Commander in Chief. But I don't see anyone accepting martial law. I must say, though, that I've been wondering what Boy George would do if Barack Obama wins on Nov. 4. I just can't believe that his merry band of neocons would go quietly.

    If you go by bush's executive orders there is no government as we know it, but only a dictatorship.
    "unleash an airstrike on Iran, declare a national emergency, institute Martial Law and cancel the elections." These rumors have been around for years. Bush supposedly nixed an attack on Iran by Israel in April/May. Maybe he not quite that crazy. Do believe he thinks about the history books. But Cheney is that crazy. Believe that's why they have Gates around.

    Even thought the Presidential Debates have already happened it wouldn't hurt to send your concern from this web site.

    "On October 17, 2006, Bush signed three Acts that instantly transformed the republic into a police state. The John Warner Defense Authorization Act (DAA) effectively repeals the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act which prohibits military operations directed against the American people."
    We need to keep the troops over there so they can't be used over here.

    Besides Naomi Wolf's talk on The End of America in my last post she has recently been interviewed.  She says a coup happened on Oct. 1st.

    I guess we will find out soon whether this is all true or not.

    The wiki on prescott bush is a white wash. Prob doesnt mention
    that he and others tried to overthrow us gov in 1934. Don't mention that he is the guy that recruited Nixion into politics. And was prob behind Eisenhower.

    I agree knolyourself.  John Buchanan mentions some of what you said in the Bush Family Nazi Connection video.

    This wiki confirms that "In the fall of 2008, elements of the Division's 1st Brigade were deployed for active duty on U.S. soil as a part of the "Global War on Terror." The deployment is currently highly controversial with one outspoken public intellectual who views it in the context of standing army and coup d'état theory."

    Rep. Brad Sherman says that a few members of Congress were told that there would be Martial Law in America if they voted no to the bailout.

    Nothing wrong in George Bush signing the decree prohibiting protests against war.  When war itself is aimed at trimming the enemy, how will it be justified to allow protests at home ?  In almost all the countries, emergency is being declalred during war and civil rights suspended.  It is better for the Americans to be allowed to comment on the Govt.  The countries attacked by Bush are all erratic. Their only aim is to terrorise the world.  Will it be wise to allow these? If all countries succumb to terrorism, the next target will be America. Wise to take preemptive action.

      Wait until your country is next on the list.

      You have consistently demonstrated a total ignorance of everything you comment on. The United States has troops in 130 countries. And of course there is something wrong with the President of the USA deciding what subjects you are allowed to speak and protest about.

      Pre-emptive action against non-aggressors who lack the ability to attack you is so short-sighted and expensive as to be positively insane.

        Thanks Mr.Mark Knowles. My country is next on your list only. Not in American Govt's list. Your ignorance about India makes you to comment like this.  Russia, China and India are three mountains. You cannot even dream of a conflict with them.

          You think?

          And how am I supposed to know you are from India exactly? Your profile does npt say where you come from. Maybe you are not on the list currently, but that could change.

          Then will you still agree that pre-emptive strikes are a good idea?

          Perhaps Pakistan should make one to secure their borders and the safety of their citizens?

            India and America will always be friendly because of our proximity with democracy. Please dont dream wildly that even if India is not currently on the list and that can change.
            Your President will change and your offensive policies will certainly change for your good.
            Regarding Pakistan, you have already said preemptive action against nonagressors, who lack ability to attack you is short-sighted, expensive and positively insane.

    You got that right Mark.  Like Naomi Wolf says in 'Give Me Liberty' it is your responsibility to stand up against tyranny and oppression.  If you don't you might wake up and find you are living in a fascist country.
