Possible Scenario...?

Postby daffodyllady on Mon Nov 03, 2008 9:07 pm

If Obama wins the election tomorrow,

Only to have the Supreme Court find within the next two months, that he is ineligible to take office...

What do you think would happen from that point?

Good question. If he already took office, I guess he would have to resign and Biden would take over. But if it was before he took office, I'm not sure what the legalities are.
(Updated!) - Please pray for me - I very much need it

Also, (on a completely unrelated note to the prayer request) am I the only one annoyed with people labeling others as "false teachers" or "heretics" because they disagree with your timeline of events when according to Peter, even the prophets themselves didn't completely understand what they were writing? Debate is fine (and even fruitful at times), but let's save those labels for those who truly are false teachers and heretics (and in this day and age, there are plenty to choose from). As long as someone believes in a literal, future return of Christ, I'm fine with them.

The logical thing to me would be making McCain president. He would win the majority of votes for the eligible candidates. Don't know if it legal, but it makes sense.

I suspect the Supreme Court would find the elections "void ab initio", and McCain would be elected. But, frankly, these people are using Bolshevik tactics. I believe they will move quickly to overwhelm all opposition.

Locally we had a man running for office, he died shortly before the election. The party replaced him with their next choice for the office, but it was too late to replace the dead man's name on the ballots. The dead man won and the man their party selected as a replacement got the job. So, if the Supreme Court did find Obama unqualified to run as president, then I'd assume Clinton would get the honor to be his replacement, however, if he was already sworn in, then I do believe Biden would take over.

I think the Supreme Courts findings will be sealed. Talk about an \'inconvenient truth\'!
