New Boss,Same As The Old Boss

Everyone in the media is crowing about the revolution in Egypt.My response to that,what revolution?The military is still in charge in Egypt as it has been since 1959 1952.For the United States that is a good thing.The last thing we and Israel need is another Iranian style revolution taking place in Egypt.

All the Egyptian people have accomplished is to remove Mubarak from power and only then because the military allowed them to.It would be equivalent to having King George III to abdicate his throne during the Revolution and another taking his place,just a change in a figurehead,not a change in the structure of government.

Sure the Egyptian people will gain concessions and some autonomy,but for now the military is still the ruling power in Egypt and that's a good thing for us.

Also while I'm ranting,whats all this talk about democracy?Democracy is not a good form of government,it is another form of tyranny.Thomas Jefferson said:
"A democracy is nothing more than mob rule,where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine."
The United States is not even a democracy,its a constitutional republic.While our government is democratic in character,it is republican in its form.A republican government is where men and women are chosen democratically and govern on our behalf within the scope and limits of a written constitution.The power is never vested in men but in the law.

In Egypt these past 2 weeks we have heard the cry for democracy,not once have i heard any one talking about liberty or the natural rights of men.The Declaration Of Independence says;
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,[72] that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Now I dedicate this song to the Egyptian people;
