    If Trump orders the military to install him as dictator will it obey? Can he depend on the troops to obey his orders? Can he depend on the generals to obey his orders?

    You know how often foreign dictators have been able to get their troops to fall in line, could you say "no"?

    My professor used to say iif you want to take over a country take over the army and the police.

    Won't happen. He may at some point, however, declare martial law to contain rioting Democrats.

    He doesn't have to do all that. If he gets away with this Emergency Order to fund the Wall, he's already accomplished his mission.

    The inevitable the president is going to be a dictator. Obama, Bush, Clinton and so on. Unless there is some sort of Nation wide disaster there is no way this could ever happen.

    Apparently most seemed to have missed we've essentially existed under potential dicatorship since the scared rabbits of Congress passed the Patriot act.

    The PA allows any sitting potus executive privilege over judicial and legislative branches .

    May the boot lickin' tards whom deny this wave thier little flags all the way to camp on fema trains....
