Not necessarily. I believe the Constitution gives the line of succession should the President go away.
But by military coup, I really doubt if they’d want a lefty of any sorts (including RINO’s) in charge. Probably someone born in the US for starters, someone who loves, not hates America, and someone that respects the Constitution.
Can anyone out there guess who has the respect of honest Americans out there that might be selected interim President if a coup happened here?
I strongly believe a coup could never happen in the US. Why? The average American has too much to lose. Revolutions generally happen in places where the people either have nothing much to lose or very much to gain, and middle-America (which would have to participate for any chance of success) simply has too much to lose. Even with things not being as good for the average American as they could be, things are not so bad that they are willing to support such an act. Impossibility level is exceedingly high. It would be literally easier for Zambia to fund a mission to Mars.
Simple answer: “YOUR GUY’S NOT GOOD ENOUGH!”
The Speaker of the House (John Boehner) is 3rd in line to the presidency - after the president and vice president. Doesn’t this give you the warm and fuzzies?/s
