Bush cancelling the 2008 election?

That's what this guy thinks will happen.
Excerpt: But we must also assume that if it appears to Team Bush/Cheney/Rove that the GOP will lose the 2008 election anyway (as it lost in Ohio 2006) we cannot ignore the possibility that they would simply cancel the election. Those who think this crew will quietly walk away from power are simply not paying attention.
Let me tell you the reasons why they won't cancel the election. First, if they did that, they'd piss off (and wake up) a lot more people than they already have. Why risk that? Second, they don't have to. Let's face it, except for Ron Paul and Mike Gravel and maybe Kucinich, the people running for office are all the same. They're all the ruling elite, they all have the same interests to protect, they'll all do the exact same thing for all intents and purposes. You get an Obama in there, and you'll not see him relinquishing any control. Same goes for a Clinton, and an Edwards or ANY of the GOP (except Paul). None of them will give back power. They are the ruling elite. Sure, one of them may pick a somewhat more liberal judge than Bush, but for the most part, it will be business as usual no matter who wins.

So why would Bush et al risk canceling an election?

About anything.

I think they care a great deal, just not about us 'proles.

I honestly believe (as I must, to keep some semblance of hope) that bush/cheney and their sycophantic, suck-up generals, may declare martial law, but they cannot force an American soldier, sailor, airman, or marine to OPEN FIRE on throngs of AMERICANS.

I would never followed such an order when I was in the military, damn the consequences, and I just can't imagine troops today would feel differently - unless we have nothing but a mercenary army composed of mentally ill, social reprobates with extensive records of drug and alcohol abuse that have been given waivers.
