We have no recourse if Obama won't leave

On the eve of the primary, I was thinking about the fact that less than 50 percent of the people would exercise their right to vote.

An idea flashed through my brain. Suppose a powerful president decided that he was indispensable and canceled the 2016 elections and just stayed in office. Congress has no armed forces to remove him nor does the Supreme Court. Only the president is in control of an armed force.

Since nobody in government is able to stop him from using his pen and phone in order to modify existing law to his liking, who would be able to remove him from office if he chose to stay and exercise power? How many Democrats would be bothered if this far out scenario actually occurred?

He is shrinking the military. Attorney General Eric Holder is forming a domestic anti-terrorist organization. Perhaps the far out is not so far out. Vote.
