MARTIAL LAW UNCONSTITUTIONAL
Recently alarm was raised about an alleged martial-law-type amendment to a law on the books. But according to Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution, the federal government may only invade (so to speak) a State to help put down “domestic violence” upon the request of that State’s Legislature, or if they cannot be convened, its Governor. (Truth be known, this is allegedly why it took so long for federal response to Hurricane Katrina. Or so they said.)
Which doesn’t mean Bush or others wouldn’t try it on their own initiative, the Constitution be damned, just like with everything else they’ve done….
