Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi has been fired!
There are times when the democratic process fails. There are times when revolution is a necessity, and revolution is exactly what happened in Egypt. An elected President immediately seized dictatorial power and brought Islamist extremism into the Egyptian government. The Egyptian people faced the reality of ousting one dictator for another who would prove to be far worse. They couldn’t stand by and let it happen. They took to the streets by the millions and forced change.
Islamism is an enemy to democracy and freedom, especially for women. The Egyptian people don’t want to go the way of Iran, the way of theocratic oppression. Let the people be free. President Morsi had his opportunity to lead Egypt on a better path. He had his responsibility as an elected leader through the people’s will of democracy to support democracy. He failed miserably on both accounts. No one supported by the Muslim Brotherhood can be trusted. May Egypt rally around a secular and moderate leader and not be divided and dis-organized allowing for another Islamist to take power. This time Egypt, have the revolution and keep it. May peace and prosperity be with you.
“Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it.” - John Adams, Thoughts on Government, 1776
