   If Hillary drops dead from Parkinson's disease before the Election, or if Trump wins the Election, you can be assured that Obama will declare martial law - and the RINOs in Congress won't do a thing about it. 

    Before anyone says, "That is conspiracy theory nonsense", just look at the revelations coming from WikiLeaks and James O'Keefe/Project Veritas.

    And your question is relevant to real estate, because if martial law is declared, the whole Economy will be in the tank.

There is still time.

Get on Google and order 24 months supply of dried PREPPER FOOD and learn to make fire using a spark. Use your cash for kindling because there will be little you can buy. Keep your ammo under lock and key.

When Martial Law is declared the world as you know it, will become survival of the fittest. Tyranny will find its reward.

I wonder if that is what it sounded like before the Boston Tea Party?

I am sure Obama is holding that one for use if Trump is elected.

I am also anxious to see what happens after the election. I believe most thinking people have some concern something crazy may happen.

I have a past client who filled me in. He refers a great deal of new clients to me so every referal comes with a new lesson. He pointed out win or lose what could happen. The scary part is the people not paying attention to wiki leaks or James O'keefe

The President is charged with protecting America. He may and must do this if called for. As for upcoming wars and issues, fasten your seat belt and tighten your money belt too

I don't think I've heard it as such, but the conspiracy theory sites and fringe news groups have been predicting the declaration of martial law after the election for at least the last year.  Ever since the military urban combat exercises started up in major citities.  If you listen to all the tinfoil hats, the refugees being let in play a big part in it.

All part of the plan if the powers that be don't like the results of the election...the waters are being tested via the lamestream media.  But, I can't see it coming about...things aren't that crazy yet, are they?

It's interesting that so many AR members take the position that this is not a platform for discussing anything but real estate. Yet whenever someone does it sure creates a buzz doesn't it?

Open forums on the Internet are pretty much open season for discussing a wide range of discussions on various topics and subjects that are on our minds. 

Judging from the candid cross section of comments on this thread I'd say that there are folks with a lot of pent up passion and overall concern about America and its future.

Anything that happens in America directly and indirectly impacts real estate one way or another. We're in the midst of one of the most tumultuous election seasons in modern history and there's a lot at steak that can and will impact not only real estate but the overall economy and social order as well. 

There's a lot of very intelligent, mature, sophisticated and successful folks that contribute a lot of very valuable information and knowledge on this platform.

I'm not suggesting open season on everything and anything that's on our minds. We have Dear Abbey for that. But I do think there are topics not directly related to real estate but that certainly influence it in some way that should be discussed openly and intelligently. That's my rant for the day and please remember to VOTE!
