Jun 27, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Jerusalem Post

Standing in the way are leaders of military junta who don't want to surrender power and the Muslim Brotherhood with an autocratic outlook that is embodied in its slogan, "Islam is the Solution" ...

from Jerusalem Post:

"Just before last weekendís presidential runoff a Mubarak-appointed court dismissed the democratically elected Islamist-majority parliament, and the ruling junta effectively declared martial law, stripped the parliament and president of much of their power and took charge of drafting a permanent constitution that is expected to protect its own power and interests.

"There have been veiled threats from the administration that failure to turn over power could endanger Egyptís annual $1.3 billion aid package, but in reality the aid is not in jeopardy.

"There will be charges from the Left about the administrationís failure to force the military to relinquish power and from the Right for its failure to prevent the Islamists from gaining power."

For thousand years .... Egypt live in statist state. This is their first time in history, to have elected democracy leader.

But democracy can lead to big government, bankruptcy and serfdom. Look what happen in Greece and US! Throw socialist free health care, social security and you will won the election.

Some times, i think that poor people, social security recipient, medicare patient shouldn't allow to vote.

And big government democracy always have their magic weapon. Such as tax the productive people, give it to lazy elders, stupid poor people, irresponsible obese geezer, unreliable persecuted Christian in Middle east.

The bright future in Egypt is limited government, free market, hard work, freedom and responsibility.

My thought on Egypt:
1) Don't ever have big government
2) Don't tax and defame the rich, and start the class warfare

The Egyptians obviously do not know what's going on either. In the case of the West, though.....it's more that we don't care.
