I tell my wife this all the time. I never thought I would live to see the United States come to this, but I do think we are going to see some kind of violence, and the various governments (federal, state, and local) will use it to impose martial law, confiscate guns, and impose their will by force.Scary to think this could happen within my lifetime. So much seems on edge. I keep my faith that america can resolve without the need for internal conflict, but i still keep prepared for the worst
Absolutely! Just grant temporary power for the greater good. I too fear the use of Martial Law after some "disaster" that would allow the Feds to use much more power than they should. We have a wonderful constitution. I say we just stick with that!STiLtd683 said:Is anyone else starting to see similarities between President Obama and Chancellor Palpatine?
LOL, I cant remember where I found this Avatar.Take a look at history. It is bound to repeat itself. No government has lasted forever, and this one will not either. Sooner or later there will be a turnover, and then we start anew again. I think we are beginning to see it now.
I like that smoking monkey avatar! LOL
IMHO, Obama is too much of a girly man to be a sith lord. I bet he couldn't build a light saber if his life depended on it. Geesh, he needs a teleprompter to even speak at his own birthday party!Is anyone else starting to see similarities between President Obama and Chancellor Palpatine?
Jeepers, is George Lucas writing the the stuff on the teleprompter .... maybe?The more I think about it the more I realize how true it is. Both Obama and Palpatine have hazy histories...Few people knew of Palpatine before his power takeover and almost nothing is known about his childhood on Naboo. Sort of reminds me of Obama's on Hawaii. Ever hear of the border gun running issues that Obama sanctioned? Looks kind of like the blown up Separatist threat that Palpatine created. And the emergency powers! What about the Contingency orders that all Clone's were programmed with? Kinda looks a little bit like the U.S. troops that were being trained for civil unrest issues a few years ago. Look at the huge amount of SpecOps troops that are spread thin over in the Middle East. Sort of like the Clone Commando's that were deployed on planets all over the galaxy with little support.

Maybe Eric Holder, is the sith, but they always come in pairs, you know. Who is the apprentice and who is the master ... hmmm?
