Conspiracy theories! This is the second greatest topic among the so-called well-informed, just behind murder mysteries.

Yet, when one talks about conspiracy theories, those on the left think they are dealing with the illiterate, anti-elitists with little or no common sense.

At the risk of being branded illiterate and a scaremonger, I will admit to my tendencies of "following the money" or in this case, "following the causes" and attempt to explain the Occupy Movement.

Simply put, someone (or some small group) wants to keep President Obama's agenda to fundamentally transform America on track until it is no longer a Constitutional Republic with free-markets. With the President sagging in all polls, how can one guarantee he stays in power long enough to complete the transformation?

Barring an economic miracle, Obama will lose the election on November 6, 2012 and will be done on January 20, 2013.

What to do? What to do?

Enter, the Occupy Wall Street Movement which has spawned no less than 130 such protests around the country.

Right now, we are watching the early rounds of a heavyweight fight between two extremely determined opponents.  Occupy Wall Street has no plans of losing this fight and neither do law enforcement authorities. 

Perhaps those running the show actually believed that raiding Zuccotti Park and more than a dozen other “Occupy camps” around the nation would end these protests, but that is just not going to happen.  Whatever your opinion of Occupy Wall Street is, everyone should be able to agree that this is one dedicated bunch. 

They are absolutely obsessed with their cause, or causes, and in response to the recent raid on Zuccotti Park organizers called for "a national day of direct action on Thursday."  But if Occupy Wall Street protesters want to take things to "the next level", they should not underestimate the resolve of the police state, or worse, the drive to declare Martial Law.

Over the past decade, the homeland security apparatus of the federal government has been slowly but surely turning this country into a “Big Brother” police state.  Today, our law enforcement authorities are obsessed with watching us, listening to us, tracking us, recording us, and gathering information on all of us.  We are constantly reminded that we live in a prison grid (just think about what they do to you before you are allowed on an airplane) and they are not about to put up with anyone challenging their authority or their control. 

Have you even known parents that constantly feel the need to prove that they are “the boss” of their children?  Well, that is essentially what the homeland security apparatus in this country has become.  All over the United States, law enforcement personnel are taught that every American is a potential terrorist and they are actually trained to “act tough”, to bark orders at us and to not let anyone question their authority. 

If Occupy Wall Street believes that it can get their desire for income redistribution in the name of fairness to become a reality, they are sorely mistaken.  Hopefully everyone will cool off a bit as the temperatures go down this winter.  But if we do see a “cooling off”, it probably will not last for long.  As the U.S. economy continues to get worse, these kinds of protests are going to keep growing and they will become even more intense. 

Eventually, mass civil unrest will cause the streets of many of our major cities to closely resemble war zones. If the protests do lead to civil unrest, then violence will erupt and Martial Law will be on the table for the Obama White House to use.

 When it is all said and done, this is not going to end well for any of us. That is, unless cooler heads prevail.

No one knows for sure what the full implication of Martial Law would look like. But if history and the recent events in Europe are any indication, then for us in a Constitutional Republic, it would mean the suspension of the Constitution itself.

Where there is no Constitution, there will be no 2nd Amendment, the suspension of habeas corpus, and there will be no elections. If there are no elections, then Mr. Obama can stay in office until order is restored. He can then take the credit for the restoration of peace and order (resembling his dream of a New Global Order) and finally secure another term by virtually winning an opponent-free election. One wonders if this is why the President, Nancy Pelosi and most of the Democrats on the Hill are "sympathetic" or "supportive" of the movement.

With our troops coming home from Iraq and their gradual withdrawal from Afghanistan, I wonder: Will they be coming home to another war?

We are living in a heavily dangerous time where one stone thrown at a police officer may incite a police-state crack down and the absolute dissolution of our civil liberties.

It is highly important for all within the Occupy movement to remain peaceful and to separate from the trouble makers at all costs.

We believe that the Constitution of the United States speaks for itself. There is no need to rewrite, change or reinterpret it to suit the fancies of special interest groups or protected classes.
