Nearly a third of Americans could imagine supporting the military overthrowing the Federal Gov’t

For many Americans, a coup in which the military seizes control of the federal government is starting to seem like a refreshing alternative to the existing administration, according to a new poll.




Conducted by YouGov, a new survey has found that 29 percent of Americans could imagine a scenario where they would support a military takeover in the United States. A total of 41 percent could not imagine supporting such an event. And so while the coup-supporters are still decidedly in the minority, the fact that the option polls so highly is remarkable. This translates to 70 million Americans who are potentially ready to support a coup.

The survey results revealed a clear political divide. Republicans were more than twice as likely to rate a potential coup more highly than Democrats, with the two parties polling 43 percent and 20 percent, respectively.




Part of the suspected reason for fondness towards a U.S. coup is that military officers consistently garner more public support than politicians. From the same survey, 70 percent of respondents think that officers want what’s best for America, compared to just 12 percent who think the same of members of Congress—a major disparity. In fact, 71 percent of respondents believe that members of Congress only want what’s best for themselves. Local politicians don’t fare much better at 59 percent.

While federal civil servants don’t perform as poorly as local politicians, 37 percent believe that they want what’s best for themselves, and only 22 percent think that civil servants have the best interests of the country at heart.

Police officers, in comparison, are viewed similarly to the military, though not quite as positively. A total of 55 percent of respondents think police officers want the best for the country, with 24 percent holding that these officers just want what’s good for them.

Talk of a military coup in the U.S. recently prompted renewed discussion after a professor at West Point was recently forced to resign following revelations that he authored several controversial articles. In one of those articles, titled “Alea Iacta Est: The U.S. Coup of 2017,” he argued that military officers, far from simply having the right to overthrow the government, may have a duty to do so if the federal government acts against the best interests of the country.

  1. Well this is a revealing article.

    This government has definitely shown itself to 'act against the best interests of this country'.

  2. If you actually add Republicans and Independents 72% would support it. As usual, only Democrat waste of space shit want their Golden Goose in place.

  3. Well, it is written in the Declaration of Independence that, "...That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. … Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Declaration of Independence (1776)."

    Therefore, it was established that it was not just a right, but instead it was the DUTY of American people.

    When you study the Constitution and all the Founder's writings, they have left us instructions, too bad that often we wait too long to implement them!

  4. Zero Hedge posted an article on Ken O'Keefe recently. This is a different interview I've been meaning to post for a while, where Ken O'Keefe, a peace activist and former US marine, speaks from the heart about where our Western nations have gone astray. (20 mins.)

  5. COULD BE A WILD WEEK!

    It can now be reported that credit default swaps aka overnight lines of credit between banks involving worthless derivative contracts have now exceeded the cost of mark up as fixed assets aka derivatives can no longer be converted back to cash.

    This confirms a lack of liquidity worldwide assets masquerading as liabilities with a massive credit crisis about to occur much worse than the 2008 debacle.

    The privately owned U.S. Federal Reserve is being told by their master, the banking interests, to raise interest rates so as to create illusionary liquidity aka more derivatives in order to bail out the undermargined now hybrid ETFs tied to the Central Bank of Japan and HSBC of Hong Kong with the yield curve ready to go ass backwards.

    This latest financial scheme risks a massive U.S. Treasury bond meltdown.
