      Could it be that polls forcasting Barack Obama’s defeat will be the catalyst for a manufactured crisis in the Islamic world/violent Wall Street protests/race riots/illegal immigrant uprising which will dictate an executive order proclamation? The implication? The 2012 election will not happen.

      Could it be the postponing of the 2012 election has been a topic encompassing behind the scenes discussions for a while? Perdue’s words did not emerge from a vacuum.


      GOP: No ‘Joke’ for North Carolina Governor to Suggest Suspending Elections
      Published September 28, 2011

      Republicans rebuked North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue after she suggested Congress suspend elections for two years so lawmakers can get to work stimulating the economy unencumbered by anxiety about what voters think.

      The governor’s office has since claimed the remark was “hyperbole.” But the North Carolina GOP isn’t buying it. …

      The Raleigh News & Observer first reported that Perdue, a Democrat, suggested a change in protocol during a speech at a local Rotary Club.

      “I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover,” she said. “I really hope that someone can agree with me on that. … You want people who don’t worry about the next election.”
