The Endgame

I've always been reluctant to buy into conspiracy theories.

Some bloggers have theorized that come January 20, 2009 the Bushies will not be leaving. I've scoffed at that. Hey, they're bad, but not that bad.

Then something put me over the top. It was Cheney's claim that his office is exempt from Presidential orders because it is not part of the Executive Branch.

I can't say why this is the act that has brought me to the conclusion that there is nothing Cheney and Bush won't do if given the opportunity, but it has.

So here's my theory on the endgame: As taxed as our military is fighting the war in Iraq, at any given time there are still many thousands of soldiers, airmen, sailors, marines and national guard on American soil. However, if we start another major war (i.e. Iran) while continuing to fight this one, we'll really have to empty the bases and send everyone to the theater of war.

What a perfect time for a coup.

I firmly believe that the military would rise up against that. If they were here.

It's January 20, 2009. G.W. Bush has announced that, due to unprecendented voter fraud, he cannot accept the result of last November's election and will not relinquish power. The Supreme Court, not wanting to repeat the 2000 fracas, is silent.

Yes, it's a ridiculous idea. But let's review the realities of the past 6 years and ask:

Is there anything they wouldn't do?

You have verbalized one of my biggest fears.
