POLL: Should President Trump Use U.S. Troops To End Rioting?

A new poll finds that a strong majority of Americans support using National Guard and U.S. military forces to stop the rioting, looting and violence taking place across the country. When President Trump suggested on Monday that he would consider deploying troops "if a city or state refuses to take the actions necessary to defend the life and property of their residents," Democrats and FAKE NEWS media vilified him for it. But most of the people surveyed support the Commander-in-Chief.

A national tracking poll released yesterday by Morning Consult found that 71% of respondents either "strongly support" (42%) or "somewhat support" (29%) U.S. cities "calling in the National Guard to supplement city police forces." Only 18% either "somewhat oppose" (7%) or "strongly oppose" (11%) military action. In that same poll, nearly 6 in 10 people (58%) are in favor of "calling in the U.S. military to supplement city police forces." Thirty percent of those surveyed oppose the idea.

    Rhoda Gelman: Yes or No is ‘Not’ a Definitive Answer and or Response and I do not mean that ‘we remain on the fence.’ President Trump can Declare: Martial Law. Do We as Sovereigns want to live under ‘Martial Law?’ Emotionally and Physically, We The People Want and Need ‘Action.’ We are Warriors With and For Our Republic and Constitution. People Say: We Are in a Revolution – But Are We? What Constitutes A Civil Revolution? Do We want to Live in a Sovereign Society and Honor Our Constitution: The First Two Amendments: Freedom of Speech For All of Us as ’Individuals and Our Right To Bare Arms Against Our Enemies?

    Discuss Immediately: The So-Called Congress verses A Body or Group Who ‘IS’ Actually an “Occult Society” Against Our Sovereign Nation For Decades: Socialistic Society and Recently Declared (Nancy Pelosi) We Are The Socialist Party of America!

    Personally, I think Democrat Governors are avoiding action to force President Trump into a corner where he has to declare martial law, which would seriously hurt him in November…this also applies to the handling of COVID-18

    Your question is BOGUS because the answer isn’t YES or NO, because use of Federal troops against US citizens is highly restricted by US LAW.

    You are failing to take into account the fact that the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 which limits the powers of the federal government in the use of federal military personnel to enforce domestic policies within the United States, but subject to the authorization contained in the Insurrection Act of 1807

    Using Federal troops is an an absolute last resort. Democrat governors need to stop playing their stupid games and better utilize the National Guard, and if applicable, the organized militias, also known State Defense Forces (SDFs) to control the riots

    I know that the President will do his best to preserve the Lives and Liberty of the American People ,if that means calling in the Military, so be it! I trust President Trump but I do not trust those who oppose our President’s every move and fear those “tyrannical forces” are gearing up for an overthrow of our Government and will do anything to depose President Trump .Can we count on ‘all ’Troops to remain loyal in light of the General Mattis upset and FBI ’s bias ?Respect and Loyalty have diminished greatly when Our President leaving the White House to inspect the damage to a Historic Church is accused of self promotion. It is a tragedy when destroying or defacing any property is excused as acceptable venting of rage Loss of behavioral control in adults requires serious intervention not ’time out’ with Mr. Rogers. It is too late for that now! All lives have value and their lifelong pursuits need to be preserved and respected as their contribution to our society. Allowing vandalism and looting is very instructive of the socialistic view of leveling the playing field until no one can prosper . Until all Life from Conception to Natural Death is once again nurtured and respected, there will always be someone who thinking they should have the advantage will seek to undermine or" eliminate" someone in their path. Hearing the words of George Floyd’s Brother ,reminiscing about Mayonnaise and Banana Sandwiches, struck me as a great reminder that we all have family history in common, good bad and in between . Our history defines us as people whatever our differences and as persons we need to seek the common thread of humanity in those we meet before we dismiss them. The fear and division we are experiencing now can dissipate ,with faith and forgiveness and determination not to turn on each other but to help each other see their worth. Evil cannot succeed in an atmosphere of Love and Respect.
