From Ioannes at Commentarius de Prognosticis:

Law to Remedy the Distress of the People of the United States of America

The House of Representatives has enacted the following law, which is hereby proclaimed with the assent of the Senate, it having been established that the requirements for a constitutional amendment have been fulfilled:

Article 1

In addition to the procedure prescribed by the constitution, laws of the Nation may also be enacted by the government of the United States. This includes the laws referred to by the Constitution.

Article 2

Laws enacted by the government of the United States may deviate from the Constitution as long as they do not affect the institutions of the House of Representatives and the Senate. The rights of the Speaker of the Senate remain undisturbed.

Article 3

Laws enacted by the United States’ government shall be issued by the Speaker of the House of Representatives and announced in the Congressional Gazette. They shall take effect on the day following the announcement, unless they prescribe a different date. Articles of the Constitution do not apply to laws enacted by the United States government.

Article 4

Treaties of the United States with foreign states which affect matters of United States’ legislation shall not require the approval of the bodies of the legislature. The government of the United States shall issue the regulations required for the execution of such treaties.

Article 5

This law takes effect with the day of its proclamation. It loses force four years from enactment or if the present United States’ government is replaced by another.

Is this for real? Could a law like this be proposed? Has one like this ever been proposed before anywhere? Did it pass? What sort of problems could lead up to this? Are any of these problems facing us today?

  1. Well we do have inactments of marshall law like it that Nixon started to combat civil unrest in the event that something like that ever happens. It's just common sense, and every country should have them. The bloodiest war we ever had was a civil war after all. And it will happen again. No country lasts forever, and they usually fall from civil unrest within.

  2. True enough. Martial law has been used on and off throughout the nation's history and there have been gross violations of the Constitution, even by the men that helped to write it. But, the Enabling Act was far broader than any martial law we've ever seen. It allowed Hitler to become a dictator. Even Lincoln never got that far!

    But, it seems that unlike you, most Americans don't know their history well enough to see the possibilities, the many different directions things can go. Most keep saying things like, "It's America, we'll get through this! NBC says everything's going to be OK."

    We're walking a very narrow line right now. Personally, I think that the die is cast and that the only real outcome of our current economic predicament is collapse. However, we can still choose to collapse in a more or less orderly fashion while retaining our Constitution and with some hope of rebuilding our country or we can follow the path of Wiemar Germany into chaos and then watch as someone or some group comes along and takes the reins and our freedom.
